Luck maker

Seek the right advice

Lucky people who are great at setting aside their egos and sharing credit are good at pinpointing smart, hard-working people who can improve their luck. Not only do they seek their advice, they give everyone a stake in their achievement.

People born on July 28 are fiercely independent and competitive. They love to work independently and although they have superb communication skills they prefer to lead by example than by hollow words. They relish testing themselves against challenges and their urge to win is so powerful that they find it almost impossible to admit defeat.

The dominating characteristic of these people at first appears to be an urge to win at all costs, but this competitive streak is fueled by their intense desire to appear self-reliant. From an early age this independent spirit will probably have manifested itself in a refusal to conform or acknowledge authority they do not respect, and throughout their lives they will always value independence of thought and action above all else.

Other people tend to be awed by this self-assurance and although it can lead people born on this day to considerable achievements it can also lead to loneliness and, ultimately, disappointment. This is because the admiration that these people earn for their courage, confidence and willingness to break new ground is merely admiration; what they crave is the affection of others. There is often a reason for this lack. The single-minded, independent and combative approach that they are characterized by is, unfortunately, more likely to alienate those they seek to impress, who perceive them as being selfish or lacking in consideration for others. This is unfair as they can be kind, generous, intuitive, and warm; but until they forge lasting emotional connections with others, their creativity and potential may be misunderstood.

Fortunately, from the age of twenty-five there are opportunities for them to become more discriminating, practical and thoughtful with their time and energy, as well as the image they present to others. If they can take advantage of these opportunities to let others see what a modest, thoughtful and generous person they are, this will assure them the popularity and affectionate recognition they need to truly enjoy their undoubted talents and seemingly endless winning streak.

on the dark side

Insensitive, detached, selfish

At your best

Resolute, independent, dynamic

Love Don’t hide your loving nature

People born on July 28 are effortlessly charismatic and will often be surrounded by admirers or even followers; in a close relationship, however, romantic partners may feel alienated by their reluctance to appear needy or reveal their loving nature. With their passionate temperament they may experience love at first sight but to make sure that love is long lasting they need to balance their need for independence with the necessity of cooperation.

Health Born survivor

People born on this day are incredibly independent and may therefore find it hard to accept the advice of their doctor but it is important for them to understand they have occasionally to relinquish control to someone with greater knowledge. They don’t tend to get ill often but when they do they can be surprisingly needy of attention and affection. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they eat sensibly and healthily avoiding over-indulgence in foods high in saturated fat, salt, sugar, additives, and preservatives. Regular exercise is recommended, but not of a competitive nature; they are competitive enough already. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange can encourage feelings of warmth and security and inspire affection in others.

Career Born fighters

These people are admirably equipped for professions in which confrontational tactics are important such as the military politics and commercial enterprises, as well as the sporting or artistic spheres. They may excel in the theater as an actor or director, and with their leadership potential will rise to positions of power. Other careers that may appeal include writing, lecturing, publishing, sales, social reform, health, and charity work.

Destiny To be the best at everything they accomplish

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to reach out to others and share the spotlight. Once they understand that winning entails that someone loses and that trusting others does not weaken their strength but increases it, their destiny is to inspire others by being the best at everything they accomplish.
