Don’t feel guilty about receiving

If you have problems receiving help or guidance from other people, ask yourself why and how you are blocking good things from happening to you. Why do you always prefer to be the giver?

People born on June 26 tend to have an energetic, sturdy, resilient approach to life. They stand up well to attack and want those they love to lean on them; as a result others often wholly rely on them. Warm and sensual, they have great compassion and are good at taking control of people in need of guidance. They love life’s comforts and are willing to work hard to provide these for themselves and those they love.

Another trait of these people is their prodigious energy, physical strength and stamina. Enjoying all kinds of physical, preferably sporting activity, their energetic approach will manifest itself in other areas of their lives, such as their work or hobbies. The area to which they will always devote most of their energy, however, will be the people around them. They are truly empathetic individuals whose intuitive response to the feelings of others arouses their urge to protect, guide and nurture. Not surprisingly, this tendency is pronounced if they have children; but whether they have a family or not, they will assume a mentoring role for colleagues and friends.

Whatever path in life they choose, they are at their best when they are part of a team or community. Their strong social orientation is perhaps their defining feature, but it has the potential to bring them both enormous fulfillment and enormous pain. This is because others may perceive their advice as an attempt to control their independence. It is extremely important for them to control their well-intentioned directional tendencies before it alienates others and smothers their own emotional needs.

Curiously, when it comes to their own personal life, hidden insecurities may manifest in unusual or compulsive behavior, such as an obsession with order and cleanliness. Fortunately, especially after the age of twenty-six, when there are opportunities for them to connect with their own emotions, they are able to discover courage and confidence within themselves. Once they have achieved this, they can display their own strong ideological beliefs and inspirational vision in a positive and self-assured way.

Health Physical stamina

They do, however, have a tendency to push themselves too hard and need to guard against accidents and injuries of all kinds, particularly to their chest, stomach and rib cage. Although they are able to work productively on their own, they function much better when part of a team or group. Staying close to their family and friends both emotionally and physically also contributes to their happiness. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they eat little and often to keep their energy levels consistent, not leaving long periods between meals or snacks. Any form of exercise is recommended, as long as it is not taken to extremes. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color yellow will increase their self-confidence and creative optimism, turning the spotlight away from others on to them.

Destiny To promote the common good

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be as protective and nurturing of their own emotional needs as they are of others.
