Luck maker

Stop doubting yourself

When you feel bad about yourself you block luck, attracting people and situations that will continue to make you feel bad about yourself.

People born on July 2 are deeply intuitive and imaginative individuals with the ability to utilize their marked determination, organizational skills and tenacity to great effect. They may however, have often felt overwhelmed by their own emotional intensity and the key to their success or failure is the way they choose to deal with it.

They are also defined by their extraordinary sensitivity, a quality that leads them to empathize with those around them–especially those less fortu nate–and which arouses in them strong feelings of natural justice that they are inclined to champion. They have a knack of reaching out to others and making them feel like family, but although their public persona is often colorful and capable, they may be plagued by private insecurities. They also constantly support friends and co-workers but find it hard to accept the support and praise they richly deserve from others.

It is important for them to get to grips with their fragile feelings and understand what motivates their self-sabotaging behavior; building their self-esteem is a crucial requirement for their psychological growth. Until the age of twenty they may be reserved but after the age of twenty-one they have opportunities to become more dynamic, positive and self-assured. They need to take advantage of these; if they do, their confidence will extend over the next thirty years, helping them achieve the positions of leadership or authority for which they are well qualified. After the age of fifty they become more discriminating and may desire to be practically useful and inspirational to others.

People born on this day can get carried away with unfounded emotions and fantasies either leading to introversion and an inability to express themselves, or to an exuberance that sometimes alarms others with its intensity. If, however, they can devote more time and energy to self-examination, looking at the effect their behavior has on themselves and others, they will find ways to balance their emotions, and this new-found stability will bring them greater happiness, success and fulfillment.

On the dark side

Insecure, touchy, uncertain

At your best

Capable, intuitive, exciting

Love Just the way you are

Though people born on this day can effortlessly attract potential partners, they never feel sure that their partner loves them for who they are. Whoever falls in love with them needs to be able to handle their fragile feelings and offer them plenty of reassurance, but they will be rewarded by deep devotion and romance.

Health Nervous tension

People born on this day don’t just feel things, they feel them intensely and as a result they may be prone to stress, anxiety and nervousness. Those who are more introverted can damage their emotional well-being by suppressing their emotions; if this is the case, counseling is recommended. Those who are more extroverted need to make sure that their desire for intensity does notlead them to recreational drugs and alcohol. As far as diet is concerned, the emphasis should be on consistency and balance; eating on the run or skipping meals should definitely be avoided. Moderate to mild exercise, in particular brisk walking, is recommended to boost their physical health and also to give them much-needed time to gather their thoughts. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will restore their balance and help calm their frayed nerves.

Career Born psychiatrists

These people are well suited to careers in psychiatry therapy counseling, and similar branches of medicine, as well as the arts, writing, drama, or music, in all of which they can find a creative outlet for their emotional intensity. They may also have a talent for business and do especially well in management positions, particularly in areas such as real estate, media or advertising.

Destiny To support, inspire and motivate others

The life path of people born on this day is to examine their internal conflicts to discover what their motivations are. Once they are able to work on their own self-development, their destiny is to use their formidable practical skills, energetic determination and powerful imagination to support, inspire and motivate others.
