Believe that you deserve the best

If you don’t believe that you deserve the best, you won’t allow good things into your life. Believe that you deserve the best right now and you will get it.

People born on February 24 have an intuitive, generous and loving spirit that makes them a much-sought-after friend, acquaintance or partner. Highly romantic, they sometimes see the world through the eyes of a poet blinded by the power of love. Intimacy is extremely important to them—without it they can wither and pine away like the hero or heroine in a romantic novel.

Those born on this day are highly sensitive to their environment and they are constantly tuning into the moods of others and the situations going on around them. This makes them good peacemakers and valuable members of a team or family, as they can often spot trouble or find ways to resolve a situation without offending anyone. The danger lies when they concentrate on the emotional needs of others rather than on their own. It is vital for them to set boundaries in their interpersonal relationships. This won’t be easy for them, and they may even bend the truth if they think it will avoid an argument. In the long run, this kind of evasive and dishonest behavior can make them feel anxious and uncertain. Fortunately, between the ages of twenty-six and fifty-six there are opportunities for them to develop their assertiveness and to be more straightforward in their relationships. Then, after the age of fifty-six, they become even steadier and more mature.

The longing for intimacy or emotional connection possessed by these people always rules their life in some way. They may have tried to suppress emotional traumas in the past, but, whatever their background or experience, these will somehow manifest themselves, perhaps in a quest for the perfect partner or in a passionate devotion to a cause.

People born on this day have a desire to use their energies selflessly on behalf of others. Once they have learned that love isn’t just about pain, but also about joy, and that intimacy is not just about sacrificing and giving, but also about receiving and gaining, they will discover within themselves the tenacity and vision to achieve just about anything.

On the dark side

Needy, moody, passive

At your best

Loving, generous, altruistic

Love Born to be in love

People born on February 24 throw themselves wholeheartedly into relationships and may end up giving too much with very little in return. For their relationships to be satisfying, they need to learn to love themselves first. Once they are able to do that, they will find the soul mate they are pining for.

Health Weak at the knees

People born on this day need to be careful that they don’t relax into a life of sensual pleasure, rich food, addiction, and very little exercise. They may have disorders involving the legs, feet and circulatory system; most of these could be avoided with an active lifestyle. It is very important for them to find ways to incorporate more exercise into their lives; for example, taking the stairs instead of the lift, walking around the block in their lunch hour, carrying rather than pushing their shopping, and so on. They should also watch their intake of red meat, alcohol, saturated fats, and sugar, especially chocolate. To stop cravings for sweet foods they should try smelling vanilla essential oil; wearing or meditating on the color blue will help calm and soothe them when they feel emotional.

Career Born poets

These people often find themselves drawn to art, music, writing, dance, poetry, and the entertainment world in general. Sensitive to color and pattern, they may also express themselves through design, in particular costume design, styling or the beauty business. Because they are so talented in dealing with people, any career which sees them in the role of mediator, adviser, counselor, agent, manager, or negotiator will suit, as will social reform, humanitarian or charity work, teaching and health careers.

Destiny To help and heal others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to love and give to themselves as much as they are willing to give to others. Once they can do that, their destiny is to help and heal others and—by so doing—make the world a more loving and giving place.
