Luck maker

Demonstrate a willingness to learn

Lucky people understand that nobody really likes or wants to help a know-all. Demonstrating a sincere and humble willingness to listen and to learn will draw people to you and they will want to help you.

People born on July 26 tend to be charming and strong individuals with an almost unshakable belief in themselves. Without doubting their ability to judge situations and people, they will offer their opinions unstintingly as fact, expecting others to agree and acknowledge them as such.

Other people tend to listen when these dominant personalities speak because they have an air of authority and experience about them which others respect and admire. They also don’t speculate widely and pointlessly on a wide variety of subjects but focus their energies on one particular field of interest in which they have immersed themselves and about which they have earned the right to speak with authority. They don’t believe in fabricating the truth, and others can be sure that what they are saying is the honest and blunt truth, however painful it may be to hear.

They can also display incredible moments of insight; this can be reflected in a humorous outlook that expresses profound wisdom behind the joker’s façade. Such is the astuteness, wit and insight of their pronouncements that others sometimes put them on a pedestal and more often than not they are very happy sitting there. Unfortunately, their elevated status can come at a cost; they may find that they lose touch with their spontaneity and feelings, becoming isolated from the very group whose admiration, affection and respect they crave.

From the age of twenty-seven they have an increasing desire for more practical order, efficiency and analysis in their lives. In the years that follow, it is important for their psychological growth that they don’t become overconfident and should be more sensitive not just to their own feelings but to those of others. This is because once they can accept that they are a part of the world and not removed from it, and that others have feelings just like themselves they can use their formidable intelligence insight and passion to formulate spectacular and authoritative strategies for success in all aspects of their lives.

On the dark side

Over-confident, tactless, uncompromising

At your best

Honest, authoritative, confident

Love Strong and self-assured as you are

Romantic partners tend to be in awe of the self-assurance that people born on July 26 tend to be blessed with, but they thrive better with those who are not afraid to puncture their ego every now and again. Behind their authoritarian façade there is a youthful and playful spirit that others find highly attractive and once in a relationship they enjoy sharing with those they love.

Health Dynamic in every way

Just as people born on this day tend to be dynamic and authoritative in their professional and personal lives, when it comes to their health they may be impressively fit and active. Their natural vitality and shine draw them to sports, games and social activities of all kinds, and if they are not exercising regularly they should start immediately as their energetic nature requires it of them. Sex is extremely important for them and celibacy may cause great frustration. They are also extremely social and if they find that their authority alienates them from those they love, for their emotional fulfillment they need to find ways to climb down from their pedestal. As far as diet is concerned, they should not go overboard with animal and dairy products, as this can lead to digestive upsets; a diet which is rich in whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, oily fish, nuts, and seeds is recommended. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will help them feel more connected to those around them.

Career Born performers

Natural performers, these people are especially suited to careers in the arts or in other creative areas such as media or advertising. Their excellent communication skills may also draw them to promotion, sales, writing, lecturing, psychology, counseling, public relations, and business. In the entertainment world or the film world, the director’s chair may appeal to them.

Destiny To arouse strong responses in others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to get to know themselves and others a little better. Once they have got in touch with their humanity and their humility their destiny is to arouse strong responses in others.
