Find ways to express passion

To get a lucky break you need to let people see how much you want something. Revealing your passion can be a good-luck strategy because it shows others you’re committed.

People born on July 10 learn lessons from the successes and defeats of those around them and plot their actions accordingly. Others may regard them as passive but they’re not; they’re steady and purposeful, only making a move when certain it will be successful or well received.

Sensitive to everything going on around them, once they have secured the background data they need for the best chance of success, they will embark on the quest to realize their goals with tenacity and determination, drawing upon their intellectual and organizational skills. Although motivation and perseverance are vital to their success, they are also quick learners with the self-confidence to be flexible in their approach.

People born on this day may often lead modest, steady lives but they are neither predictable nor dull. Quite the opposite; when people get to know them better, everything about them has the potential to surprise. For example, they are never afraid to speak their mind but when they do it is with tact and sensitivity. They may also surprise others with their incisive wit or devote their considerable energy to one specific goal, stepping aside at the last minute to allow others to take the credit. At certain points in their lives, their early forties especially, they are also likely to astonish people with a total change of lifestyle, but even though the change may come as a shock to others, to themselves it will all be part of a well-planned strategy.

It’s not that they don’t like to be in the limelight; they do. It’s just that they will only step into it if it serves a purpose or highlights a cause they are promoting. Others may sometimes see them as shy and sensitive but beneath lies a steely determination to succeed that will reveal itself when the time is right. When they finally do decide to invest their energy into a worthy cause, everyone will wonder how they could have underestimated the creative and dynamic energy of this dark horse hiding behind a mild-mannered exterior.

On the dark side

Withdrawn, passive, insecure

At your best

Curious, purposeful, receptive

Love Mystery

People born on July 10 may size up potential partners from a distance before they make the first move or declare their intentions. Even their long-term partner may find them something of a mystery finding it hard to know what they are thinking and feeling. It is wise for them to look before they leap but they need to make sure they don’t linger and observe for so long that they spend their life forever weighing up the pros and cons on the sidelines.

Health Experiment

Although they are quick to observe the negative effects of poor diet and exercise on other people, when it comes to themselves they can be surprisingly passive and detached. It is therefore important that they experiment with their diet until they find one that maximizes their nutrient intake without leading to weight gain. They also need to experiment with various forms of exercise to find which one they truly enjoy because this will increase their chances of sticking to it. Soaking in an aromatherapy bath and regular massages will help them feel more connected with their bodies. Surrounding themselves with the color red will encourage them to be more open and self-confident when socializing with others.

Career Born psychiatrists

People born on this day may often be drawn to careers as psychologists or psychiatrists, but they can also excel as actors, writers, painters, and athletes. Other possible career options include photography counseling, tourism, and working for themselves.

Destiny To surprise others with their progressive vision

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to participate more in life and occasionally let their heart rule their head. Once they are able to be more impulsive, their destiny is to surprise and delight others with their clear sense of purpose and progressive ideals.
