Luck maker

Bend but don’t break

You do need consistency but you also need to be open-minded and willing to reconsider your options if life gives you reason to.

One of the greatest strengths of those born on January 14 is their ability to take in vast amounts of information and still see the bigger picture. They are shrewd judges of people and situations, and their inquisitive mind is forever hungry for new ideas, new information and new challenges. Because they have this panoramic view, they are particularly good at decision making. Their strong sense of right and wrong, combined with their highly developed sense of conviction and certainty, makes them excellent and much-sought-after peacemakers, both at home and at work.

Unfortunately the conviction and certainty possessed by those born on this day also have their attendant dangers. Once they have settled on a course of action, it is almost impossible for them to change course and they may go to extreme lengths to see things through to the bitter end. Ironically for people who are so uncompromising and committed in their work life, they aren’t always able to make that same level of commitment to their personal life. In fact their personal life definitely takes second place. This may be because they believe that emotions and connections with other people are a distraction from their primary purpose in life, but it may also be the result of a fear of being disappointed. The way forward for them is to apply the same level of commitment to potential friends and partners, and to learn to respect and appreciate the emotional support of others.

Although they appear to be extremely confident and have the ability to implement radical change, they are inwardly far more complex than they appear. Behind the solid, strong image and the apparent love of risk-taking and innovation lies a person who often feels misunderstood; these feelings are heightened if they haven’t found a direction in life to which to devote their considerable energies. Once they understand that it is not leadership, material wealth or high rank that they crave but personal freedom and the ability to bring about positive change in the world, they can leave their insecurities behind and achieve miracles.

On the dark side

Stubborn, obsessed, insecure

At your best

Peacemaker, inquisitive, risk-taker

Love Passions run deep

The passions of those born on January 14 run deep and they are typically uncomplicated by jealousy. Family, friends and loved ones need to be extremely faithful, patient and understanding but it is well worth the effort as they make adventurous and exciting lovers. Their ideal partner is somebody with a like mind who does not get jealous or possessive and supports them in their convictions.

Health Accident prone

Fortunately, people born on this day are unlikely to be tempted by drugs, drink or smoking and this has a protective effect on their health, both physical and emotional. Unfortunately, despite their common-sense approach to health, they are often guilty of driving themselves too hard or living on the edge. Their body inevitably pays the price with accidents and stress-related headaches and insomnia. They are attracted to extreme sports but their health would be better served by gentle to moderate exercise, such as cycling or swimming. A cup of lemon balm or passion-flower herbal tea before bed time will help them sleep well and relieve any aches and pains.

Career Born people watchers

It is important for these people to find an outlet for their powers of observation, their ability to see the whole picture and their untapped well of creativity. Writing and photography may be of particular interest, as might property development and design, but because of their unusual ambition and determination they can master almost any skill or career. The media, public relations and advertising may appeal, and as might careers in business, banking and the stock exchange.

Destiny To introduce positive reforms

The life path of people born on this day is to find a cause to which they can devote their considerable energy. Once they have learned the importance of connections with others they will discover their destiny, which is to introduce reforms or groundbreaking ways of doing or looking at things.
