Get in touch with nature

To lead a balanced life you need sometimes to be able to stop thinking and doing and just be; one of the most effective ways to calm your mind is to get in touch with nature.

People born on March 23 are fascinated by everyone and everything. They are driven by a desire to learn not just how and why things work, but also what makes people tick. To this end they tend to draw toward them as many people as will feed their insatiable curiosity.

When these people learn that a good mind and education are the keys to success, their intelligence and versatility can take them to the top of their chosen field. They have great insight into the strengths and weaknesses of others, yet can sometimes be lacking in empathy. Often too emotionally detached to be fired up by compassion for others, they tend to rely on encyclopedic knowledge, rather than personal experience. Even though they have the ability to make friends easily and are often surrounded by fellow debaters, they do run the risk of becoming observers rather than participators.

Eternal students of human nature, the issues that most interest them—the meaning of life, the hows and whys of human emotion and behavior—are those that they could most benefit from applying to themselves. Their information-gathering approach has both its strengths and its weaknesses; it does not take into account the importance of a person’s inner life and how that can provide meaning and comfort. Their tendency to observe and over-analyze is most pronounced between the ages of twenty-eight and fifty-eight, when it is important that they learn to recognize their own and other people’s emotional and spiritual needs. If they aren’t able to, they may be prone to sudden and, to their frustration, unexplained bouts of insecurity and sadness.

These perceptive, inquisitive and eager-to-learn people are wonderfully entertaining and stimulating to have around and they never fail to surprise and delight others with their insights. Once they have learned to look within as well as outside of themselves for stimulation, they have all the enthusiasm and determination they need not only to make startling observations but also to act upon them with dramatic and often life-enhancing benefits.

On the dark side

Skeptical, uninvolved, insecure

At your best

Progressive, insightful, flexible

Love Listen to your heart

Until they develop a true sense of self-worth, people born March 23 are prone to unfaithfulness. They also need to make sure they don’t apply their predilection for impartial analysis to personal relationships, as it will have disastrous consequences. Once they learn to search with their heart as well as their head they can, however, be generous and affectionate lovers.

Health Individually tailored

People born on this day may be prone to headaches and eye strain, especially if they stay up late studying or reading, or work long hours at a computer. They will probably have a fairly good idea of how their body works and the most effective way to take care of it with the correct diet and exercise routine, but they need to learn that each person is an individual and what might work for one person may not work as well for them. They need to make sure they drink plenty of water, leaving no more than three to four hours between meals and snacks to keep their brain adequately nourished. As far as exercise is concerned, the more vigorous the better is recommended, so as to give their minds a break from their relentless questioning. If they feel sad for no apparent reason, a bergamot-scented candle may be able to lift their mood, as would wearing the colors yellow or orange.

Career Born surgeons

These people are clearly well equipped for careers in medicine, science, engineering, computer or video-game design, teaching, and psychotherapy. They may, however, find that their gift for analysis and observation draws them toward the arts, acting in particular. They may also be drawn to careers in writing or publishing, but whatever career they choose, their intellect and ability to be objective will help them succeed.

Destiny To make new discoveries

The life path of people born on this day is to acquire self-knowledge. Once they are able to get in touch with their feelings, their destiny is to study the facts and make new discoveries, observations or hypotheses for others to work with.

Power Thought

“The love in my heart refreshes and restores me”
