Stop self-destructive behavior

Lucky people don’t destroy their own chances of success and happiness with self-sabotaging behavior, so begin to notice when you are doing things that do not promote positive results.

Charismatic, enterprising and determined to get ahead in life, people born on July 1 possess an adventurous spirit, a shrewd mind and a remarkable memory. Insightful, intuitive and imaginative, many of them are also great humanitarians capable of making tremendous sacrifices for others and for society as a whole.

Although they have the ability to be extroverts and are often genial and outgoing in public, in private they can be more moody and changeable than most realize. Balancing the introvert and extrovert, or feminine and masculine energies, within them, they are equally solitary and gregarious. They also have an unusual empathy for the issues, conflicts and insecurities experienced by the opposite sex, and as a result will be sought out by both male and female friends for their opinions or friendship. They love to give advice and offer support, especially if it’s for those less fortunate; other people love them for their spontaneous generosity. Their volatile, artistic temperament can, however, cause them to act on impulse, alienating them from others when they say or do things they later regret.

Until the age of twenty-one they are likely to be extremely shy and lacking confidence in their own abilities, but after the age of twenty-two there are many opportunities for them to develop their strength, creativity and self-expression. They need to take advantage of these opportunities because if they don’t, they may start to torture themselves with worry, anxiety and self-doubt. After the age of fifty-one their focus changes to a more pragmatic desire to be of service.

In many ways it could be said that they are their own worst enemies. They need to learn to reconcile their inner and outer selves so that they don’t get trapped in only one half of their lives. When they do reach this delicate balance they will discover within themselves a rare and exquisite magic that can not only reach out and inspire others, but also enhance their own potential for happiness, success and good fortune in all areas of their lives.

On the dark side

Self-doubting, negative, impulsive

At your best

Warm, ambitious, charismatic

Love The big issue

Love for people born on July 1 is the big issue of their lives, and they need a partner who is solid and secure and of whom they can feel proud. Loyalty and trust play an important role in their relationships, but they need to make sure that passion and love are the price they pay for safety and security.

Health Happy inside

People born on this day don’t always have a positive relationship with their body and their health and well-being may suffer as a result. They are prone to eating disorders, or to exercising and dieting obsessively to get into shape. It is extremely important for them to learn to get a sense of balance and perspective, remembering that until they feel happy inside no amount of exercising or dieting is going to make any difference. Depression is another major health risk for them and they would benefit from counseling or therapy. Listening to music may also be extremely therapeutic, as would plenty of mild mood-boosting aerobic exercise such as walking, dancing and swimming. Carrying a titanium quartz crystal with them will help them pull themselves together when they feel all over the place, and wearing the color yellow will help boost their self-confidence.

Career Born actors

These people like to be in control so they may succeed in management or executive positions. They may also prefer to work for themselves. Other careers that might suit them include politics, theater, film-making, fashion, acting, directing, art, music, dance, the caring professions, the leisure industry sport, social work, teaching, and working with children.

Destiny To help alleviate suffering in the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to give and receive. When they reach this balance, their destiny is to turn the spotlight on injustices and help alleviate suffering.

Power Thought
