Luck maker

Be nosy

One of the most effective ways to gather information to increase your chances of luck is keeping your mouth shut and your ears and eyes open. Observe and find out who or what will help you succeed.

People born on July 16 tend to have an impulsive, passionate nature. They dream adventurous and exciting dreams and more often than not these come true. Once they are inspired, their energy and enthusiasm is without equal, but they have another side, their logical side. This unusual combination of passion and logic makes them interesting, unusual and exceptional.

The demeanor of these people can be down to earth and pragmatic, but despite this they never lose sight of their dreams and passions. Whatever life path they choose, there will always be a conflict between their logic and their impulses, and this will come across in words that are rational but presented passionately or behavior that is impulsive but explained logically. When their logic and passion are in harmony, with neither gaining the upper hand, they are likely to feel at their happiest; but when one is more dominant than the other it can lead to unhappiness. For example, they may try to repress their emotions by becoming obsessive in their behavior; or they may try to bury their logic and become unrealistic or unfocused in their approach.

For the first thirty-five years of their lives people born on this day will often grow in confidence and capability; these are the years when emotions are most likely to take the lead. After the age of thirty-six, however, there is a shift toward logic and reason, and they are likely to have a more practical and discriminating attitude, with service to others becoming a more important part of their lives. After the age of sixty-six there is an emphasis on harmony and balance between the two conflicting sides of their personality.

The key to success and happiness for people born on this day is to allow neither their rational nor their impulsive side to take the lead. If they can find a way to balance the two, they will find that they have within them outstanding potential not just to achieve their own dreams but also to bring excitement into the lives of others.

On the dark side

Obsessive, unrealistic, unfocused

At your best

Intense, passionate, devoted

Love Follow your heart

People born on July 16 aim high when it comes to affairs of the heart and they often tend to pursue and succeed in capturing romantic partners whom others may consider unsuitable or out of their league in terms of wealth, appearance and educational background. This is because they are passionate, sensitive and intelligent but also determined and focused enough to get who or what they want, no matter what odds are stacked against them.

Health Will-power alone

People born on this day need to understand that sometimes they will need to seek the advice of their doctor and that will-power alone cannot always keep them feeling healthy. They are especially prone to illnesses of the upper digestive tract, indigestion, catarrh, coughs, anemia, and lowered vitality so it is important for them to make sure they boost their health and their immune systems with a nutritious diet rich in antioxidants (found in fruit and vegetables) and plenty of exercise. Being so strong willed, they are unlikely to take the advice of any nutritionist or fitness instructor preferring to devise their own health program. This is fine as long as they do plenty of research first to find the best diet and exercise routine for their hectic lifestyle. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will boost their self-esteem and help them bring balance to all aspects of their lives.

Career Born spokesperson

These people are particularly suited to the arts, where their innovative work can inspire others, but they may also choose to help others by becoming social or religious campaigners. Other careers they may be drawn to include education, counseling, social work, or a job that requires speaking up for others, such as labor unions, politics or law.

Destiny To transform or better the lives of others

The life path of people born on this day is to find ways to balance their impulsive and their rational side. Once they find this balance, their destiny is to make a positive and transforming contribution to bettering the lives of others.
