Luck maker

Be realistic

Lucky people value what they know they can achieve. Stay with reality and try to make things better, not perfect.

People born on January 25 come into this world with a powerful sense of destiny or purpose. They feel as if they have been sent with a mission, and until they are able to find and then achieve that mission they will feel unfulfilled.

If those born on this day are able to find a sense of purpose, their hard-working and disciplined approach to life will assure their success. They have the ability to focus their energies on their goals; these goals tend to be for the good of others rather than for themselves alone. They are at their happiest when they are totally immersed in a project, but their over-involvement is never at the expense of their individuality. People born on this day refuse to conform, and personal freedom is extremely important to them. Friendship is also important for them, and with their sharp wit they are never boring.

People born on this day are trendsetters, and you will often see them working one step ahead of the rest, using their intuition to push forward in a new direction. Occasionally they run the risk of pushing themselves too far forward and their off-the-wall experimentation with their appearance and their ideas can leave others feeling bewildered. This willingness to experiment is all part of the powerful sense of destiny that marks the out. Although they do see themselves as uniquely talented, they can also see themselves as uniquely flawed, and when there is tendency to dwell too much on their supposed deficiencies this can result in self-defeating behavior. It is important for them to come to terms with who they are and to feel comfortable with their personality. Typically around the age of twenty-six, sometimes later, they develop a greater sense of emotional identity and honesty.

Once people born on this day recognize that there really is nothing wrong with them and that emotions are not fixed but constantly changing, they have the potential to become bold and effective leaders in their work and dynamic and fascinating people in their personal life.

On the dark side

Nervous, self-defeating, impatient

At your best

Profound, altruistic, individual

Love The soul mate

People born on January 25 believe strongly in the idea of a soul mate—that person out there who completes them. Although this means that they can be extremely romantic, generous and passionate lovers, their need for total involvement from their partner can at times be too intense. They are drawn toward people who appreciate their need for life and love to be extraordinary.

Health Stay positive

Those born on this day need to be careful that they do not fall into a state of depression when they feel they are not fulfilling their life purpose. It is crucial for them to keep a positive attitude toward themselves; the best way to achieve this is not just through positive thinking but through a healthy diet, a regular exercise routine and an active social life. They also need to make sure they do not smoke or eat a diet too high in protein or saturated fat, as these could lead to poor mental, physical and emotional health. If they are feeling negative and uncertain, burning bergamot-, lavender- and sandalwood-scented candles may help change their perspective. They may also benefit from thought-changing therapies such as cognitive development or hypnotherapy.

Career Born achievers

The danger for these people is to be without direction, drifting from job to job, project to project, and scattering their energy and focus. In fact the choice of a career is perhaps more important than anything else for these determined individuals, as once they have settled on a course they tend to do very well in any profession. Writing, sociology and counseling, as well as music and the arts, might suit their curious personality; sales, marketing or financial negotiation might utilize their fine organizational talents. They also make accomplished electricians, inventors and technologists.

Destiny To share their sense of purpose with the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to like and trust themselves, and to accept both their limitations and their strengths. Once they are able to do this, they will be able to find their sense of purpose and to share their magnificent gifts with the world.
