Believe in your own value

Lucky people understand that they are not perfect, but are just like everyone else; they have simply learned how to minimize their weaknesses and maximize their strengths.

People born on July 19 set themselves extremely high standards. From a very early age self-improvement will have been a key theme. They expect a great deal from themselves and others, but those who know them well will recognize that their harshest criticism is reserved for themselves.

These people are energetic and charming, and both physically and intellectually they need to keep their bodies and minds active. This is why they will often push themselves incredibly hard or jump from activity to activity. They need to keep moving and, above all, to feel that they are learning, growing and improving in all areas of their lives. In many ways they are among the most self-aware individuals of the year and when they have made any kind of mistake or oversight they will immediately acknowledge it, trying to find ways of improving their performance, behavior or attitude in the future. Others love them for their ability to learn and change, but their self-awareness does come at a price: a painful awareness of their own inadequacies.

People born on this day are prone to relentless self-criticism and they may often exaggerate their imagined shortcomings. When they are indulging in a bout of insecurity, mood swings and impatience are likely, so it is extremely important for their psychological growth that they understand the need to stay centered. Spending more time simply being instead of doing will help boost their self-esteem, giving them the objectivity and distance needed to manage their emotions effectively.

Until the age of thirty-three they will be presented with opportunities to develop their strength and confidence. After the age of thirty-four they are likely to become even more perfectionist in their approach to life. Because of their tendency to be harsh with themselves they should ensure that they also bring more patience to their talents during these years because if they do they will be able to make the most of their wonderful potential becoming the creative and charismatic person they were always meant to be.

On the dark side

Impatient, insecure, moody

At your best

Energetic, self-aware, charming

Love Seductive playfulness

People born on July 19 maybe prone to mood swings and tantrums, but their charm and seductive playfulness will more than make up for these shortcomings, drawing many different potential partners to them. They have a strong need for emotional security and will often seek a close relationship with someone who is dependable.

Health on the move

People born on this day love to move and, if exercise isn’t already a part of their lives, they should make sure it is because it offers them the opportunity to boost their health both physically and emotionally. Building their self-esteem is also of crucial importance because, although others find them fascinating and creative individuals, they are more likely to focus on their weaknesses than their strengths. Mind-control techniques such as meditation and cognitive behavior therapy may help them challenge and question irrational and negative thoughts. As far as diet is concerned, they tend to have a craving for sweet foods and chocolate, particularly when they are feeling low; so finding healthy alternatives such as fruit, or doing some exercise when the craving strikes, is recommended. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color yellow will boost their self-confidence and bring out their sunny potential.

Career Born sprinters

People born on this day are extremely energetic and this may draw them to sporting careers or the mastery of technical or artistic pursuits. Careers that offer the possibility of fulfillment include politics, social work, education, the caring professions, design, writing, music, art, poetry dance, drama, law, business, and fundraising.

Destiny To help humanity progress

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to believe in their own self-worth. Once they have started to work on building their self-esteem—which is a lifelong task—their destiny is to help humanity progress, be it socially physically technically or ideologically.
