Luck maker

Want what you already have

Luck follows those who appreciate and are grateful for what they already have. If you appreciate what you have or acknowledge how far you have already come, you will be much more positive in your attitude.

People born on February 28 have a warm glow about them and can light up their lives of others with their energy and originality. They love to be center stage and are often in just that spot at social gatherings. Natural performers, they are never short of admirers and are blessed with the ability to charm just about anyone they meet.

Articulate and entertaining, people born on this day will go out of their way to get a laugh or reaction from others, even if this involves exaggerating the truth. They thrive on being noticed, but attention seeking isn’t what drives them. Their motivation is a thirst for adventure and they will enthusiastically follow wherever their impulses direct them. Underlying their restlessness, however, is a deep-seated fear of standing still; the fear of it will drive them toward sensation-seeking and sometimes self-destructive behavior.

They won’t ever lose the glint in their eye, but underneath their bravado they do secretly long to find a real purpose and achieve lasting success in the eyes of the world. This won’t be possible until they discover that self-esteem is not created by thrill-seeking but by being the person they are. It is important for these people to learn to be more comfortable with being rather than doing, because until they can reach this level of awareness their life may hurtle chaotically from one situation to another and one person to another. They should learn to cultivate an inner calmness between the ages of twenty-two and fifty-one, when there is an emphasis in their life on new directions and ventures.

Because people born on this day live in such a vibrant and wholehearted way, they will experience life more intensely than others. They do, however, need to rein in their compulsion to indulge their every whim and learn greater self-control. They should never suppress their optimism and curiosity, but if they can just try to look before they leap, they can become far more than original charmers; they can become life’s pioneers, boldly going where none have gone before.

Health Life in the fast lane

There is a tendency for them to neglect their health as they jump from one adventure to another; regular health check-ups are therefore recommended. They often enjoy cooking, so this will encourage them to eat more healthily; as far as exercise is concerned, they would benefit most from those with a mind-body approach, such as yoga or tai chi, although swimming and running also suit them. Wearing, surrounding themselves with or meditating on shades of purple will encourage them to look within rather than without for a sense of self-esteem.

Career Born travelers

These people need to find careers which will allow them to channel their energy and curiosity. They are ideally suited to careers in tourism and travel, as well as arts and sports. Their sharp mind and desire to explore mentally may also draw them to science, teaching, research, and philosophy, and they can also thrive in careers which allow them to take the lead, such as management or business, or working for themselves. Later in life they may be drawn toward helping others, and their love of the dramatic may also draw them to the arts, writing and entertainment world.

Destiny To be life’s pioneer and adventurer
