Luck maker

Take a stand

Lucky people are certain about what they want. It is this certainty (and not the approval of others) that gives them the strength and determination they need to achieve their dreams.

People born on January 31 have an overwhelming need to be noticed, heard and taken seriously. And because more often than not these bright, appealing people achieve this goal with ease, they are admired by others for their creativity, vision, and originality.

Strong will-power, steadfastness and an emphasis on self-expression define people who are born on this day. They may also be quite progressive, with a touch of the genius about them. Although they can appear absent-minded and chaotic at times, this is only because their thoughts are always on fast-forward, their mind being filled with original and ingenious ideas and concepts.

When they feel they have made some kind of breakthrough they run the risk of getting over-excited, but others tend to find this endearing rather than annoying. In fact people born on this day are generally well liked for being so inventive and entertaining in their never-ending quest for knowledge. They are magnetic personalities but harbor a tendency to be occasionally oversensitive, reading hidden meanings into the actions and words of others. When they feel upstaged, put upon or let down they may overreact and either withdraw completely and become depressed, or startle others with their sharp tongue. They need to learn to be a little less intense in their relationships and to accept that sometimes other people want to share the limelight.

Occasionally people born on this day may feel pressured to conform to others’ expectations of them in order to be liked; by so doing they run the risk of losing their unique charm. Fortunately, around the age of twenty there is a turning point which suggests they are able to develop greater self-reliance; at the age of fifty there is another turning point which highlights their fighting spirit and emotional resilience.

Above all, people born on January 31 are bright spirits who have the ability to light up the world with their bubbly personalities and brilliance. Once they learn to truly value themselves they have the potential not only to bring great happiness to the world but also to influence and inspire.

Love Bubbling over

People born on January 31 throw themselves into relationships with bubbling enthusiasm. They make endlessly fascinating and entertaining partners but also incredibly supportive and loyal ones. Their partner may find it hard to get a word in, and it is important for them to learn to calm down and listen from time to time. If they can find a lover who encourages them to show their serious as well as their fun side, a passionate and intense connection is possible.

Health The color blue

Difficulties with their emotional life, in particular with friends and loved ones, can affect the health of people born on this day and manifest in depression, low self-esteem or insecurity. It is important for them to learn to feel comfortable with and to express their feelings to family and friends; they could benefit from counseling or alternative therapies, such as meditation, that stress the potential of the mind to alter the way they feel both emotionally and physically. They need to make sure they eat a healthy, balanced diet, as they are also prone to eating disorders. They would also benefit from fairly energetic exercise, such as aerobics or jogging, as it will help calm their mind. Meditating, wearing or surrounding themselves in the color blue will help stabilize their mood and bring feelings of calmness.

Career Born consultants

These people work well as philosophers, teachers, consultants, healers, writers, academics, as they have a love of gathering knowledge and are expert at communicating it to others. Once they have learned to master their own insecurities they also make outstanding counselors and instigators of social or humanitarian reform. They may also choose to channel their creativity into the entertainment world or the arts, in particular poetry or song writing.

Destiny To bring great joy to the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to rely less on the reaction they get from others and more on their own instincts. Once they have learned to trust themselves, their destiny is to bring great joy to the world with their charm, wit, and insight.
