Luck maker

Stop trying to please everyone

One of the quickest ways to chase luck out of your life is to make other people’s approval your first priority.

People born on March 16 generally appear to others as well-balanced personalities who manage to combine their imaginative potential with a practical, grounded approach. Their talent for maintaining equilibrium or seeking the middle way is the secret of their success.

People born on this day are at their best when they can find a sense of balance; they have a great talent for negotiation and for making people pull together as a team. Their love of balance also displays itself in their personal life. At work they are paragons of ambition and discipline but at home they know how to unwind and reflect. They have a dreamy, intuitive side that is sensitive to the needs of others but they are not impractical and can use their common sense to make sure everyone feels important. Their homes and workplaces are tidy and elegant but not obsessively so; as a result, people often feel instantly comfortable when visiting.

Because of the high value they place on balance, there is often a kind of wholesomeness about these people. There is a danger, however, that their balanced outlook sometimes overlooks the possibility of unexpected setbacks; they need to learn to pay attention to warning signs before trouble actually hits. They also need to be careful that their own views or values don’t become so muted that they disappear altogether, especially after the age of thirty-four when they can express a need for less change and conflict, and more stability and security in their lives. They need to be careful during this time not to let their practical, hedonistic side overshadow their idealistic and intuitive side.

Above all, these people are multi-talented individuals who can channel their imagination and originality into schemes that are both visionary and practical. Once they are able to accept rather than deny their own changeable nature and take on responsibilities with excitement rather than apprehension, they will not only find a true sense of balance and equilibrium, but also the exhilarating sense of achievement and fulfillment that goes with it.

On the dark side

Inconsistent, dreamy, foolish

At your best

Practical, imaginative, insightful

Love For keeps

People born on March 16 have a talent for making and keeping friends, often putting the needs of others above their own. This is also true of long-term relationships, if they are able both to overcome past hurts that inhibit deep commitment and refrain from being overly sensible about everything. Once they learn to philosophize less and laugh more they make wonderful partners.

Health Personal responsibility

People born on this day are likely to be sensible when it comes to their diet and exercise routine, taking great care to ensure they eat healthily and exercise regularly. This is because they understand that looking after their health is all part of taking personal responsibility for their lives. What might be lacking in their approach, however, is a sense of fun, so they should make sure they dine out more with good company, experiment more in their cooking and eating, and get plenty of exercise, preferably in the outdoors. Vigorous exercise, perhaps with an element of risk, such as ice hockey, diving, or horse riding, is recommended. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color red will encourage them to be more daring in their approach to life.

Career Born mediators

These people will flourish in situations in which they can lead and inspire, and they make great teachers or business leaders. Imaginative and sensitive to color but also practical in their application, they make great designers and image consultants, as well as art dealers or critics. They also make excellent diplomats or mediators as well as counselors, therapists, social workers, or reformers.

Destiny To improve the lives of others with their vision

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to place as much emphasis on their own values as those of others. Once they have learned to express themselves, their destiny is to put their energy into visionary and progressive concepts that can practically improve the lives of others.
