Luck maker

Just imagine

Lucky people understand that their imagination is the key to unlocking their success. You can’t accomplish anything without it first being pictured in your mind. The way to success is to visualize yourself succeeding.

People born on July 13 tend to be courageous and daring risk-takers with a resilience that ensures they will always bounce back with their energy redoubled no matter how hard life knocks them down. This isn’t to say they are blind optimists; rather their imagination never fails them, and if things can’t or won’t happen in one particular way they look for a new approach or strategy.

Fearless and focused, there is little that can intimidate them, except perhaps when it comes to affairs of the heart where they can be a little unsubtle and awkward. Their approach to life is action orientated, endowing them with an irresistible urge to achieve their targets. When their sharp mind, originality, inventiveness, and prodigious energy are added, it results in an outstanding capacity to recognize a potentially advantageous opportunity, seize the moment and act incisively. Sometimes their risk-taking strategy backfires, but their refusal to admit defeat and willingness to look at alterna tive approaches maximizes their chances of success.

Taking risks and achieving success comes naturally to them because they tend to be blessed with self-confidence. There may, however, be those less evolved who lack this self-belief and this is probably because they have taken a risk that backfired affecting their confidence. It is vital for their personal fulfillment that they do not allow their negative self-belief to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Getting involved may be their strength, but to be true to themselves they first need to change their thoughts about themselves. When they truly believe in their own potential their chances of fulfillment and good fortune will increase significantly.

At the age of thirty-nine they come to a turning point; this is the time when they are most likely to be plagued by self-doubt. If however they can make this turning point work for rather than against them by becoming more orderly discriminating and practical in their approach, they will find that their creativity and optimism return.

On the dark side

Reckless, inflexible, self-doubting

At your best

Daring, opportunist, resilient

Love Try a more subtle style

People born on July 13 are often uncomfortable and unsubtle when it comes to affairs of the hearts. They are so action-orientated that they seldom appreciate the need for a more subtle approach by winning someone over with beautiful words or gestures. They are also incredibly restless and may tire quickly of their partners. Part of the problem is that they aren’t really sure what they want from a relationship, but once they make up their mind they will find it.

Health Watch your stress levels

Because people born on this day are such risk-takers they may suddenly make major lifestyle changes or decisions, and may not appreciate how greatly this can impact their health and well-being. Stress and insomnia could be problems, as could digestive upsets and fragile immune systems. It is important for them therefore to give themselves plenty of time to adjust to new routines or situations, making sure they get enough rest, relaxation and fun. Improving their diet by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, and oily fish will help them cope with stress, and regular exercise, preferably mild to moderate such as swimming or cycling, is also highly beneficial. Mindcontrol techniques such as cognitive therapy or hypnotherapy are recommended if self-esteem is a problem, and wearing the color blue will help them approach people and situations in a calm, controlled way.

Career Born entrepreneurs

These people may be drawn toward careers where they can work for the welfare of others such as social work or teaching, although their talents may suit them equally well to becoming entrepreneurs, performers or artists. Other careers that might suit include public relations, sales, catering, landscape gardening, or real estate.

Destiny To surprise and inspire others with daring originality

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to trust their good judgment, and weigh up the pros and cons before taking a risk. Once they have learned to believe in themselves, their destiny is to surprise and inspire others with their originality and courage.
