Practice stress-management techniques

If you’re under stress, you’ll make mistakes, lose the respect of others, and miss out on opportunities. Meditation, yoga, a relaxing walk, or taking short breaks from your routine at regular intervals will attract good fortune your way.

People born on March 31 are often stable individuals with a profound sense of who they are. Their presence is commanding and the force of their authority unquestioned. They have little time for small talk but plenty of time and energy for action and common sense.

There’s a calmness and steadiness about these people, making them highly valued in both professional and personal environments. With a pragmatic and determined approach, they are also capable of compromise if life demands it, because they value making progress in an orderly and direct manner. If, however, they feel that others are standing in the way or complicating matters, they can be extremely argumentative and demanding.

The air of authority of these people marks them out as potential leaders but they tend to feel comfortable when they are contributing ideas or working within a team where their contagious energy motivates others to go along with them. They aren’t great risk-takers as they prefer security to gambling, but it’s important for them not to let opportunities to express their talents pass them by. They are most likely to favor a steady and pragmatic approach to life between the ages of twenty and fifty; during this time they should get out of their comfort zone every now and again, taking the odd calculated risk. After the age of fifty there is a greater emphasis on experimentation and new ventures.

These people do tend to be led by their head rather than their heart. Emotional control is important to them. When they feel threatened by their emotions, cynicism or sudden outbursts of temper are often their ways of avoiding dealing with them. Recognizing their need for greater emotional expression, life has a way of forcing them to get in touch with their feelings, through either the people they meet or the situations they experience. Once they learn to listen to their emotions as much as their common sense, these resourceful, realistic, energetic, and remarkably influential people are destined for a rare combination of success in every aspect of their lives.

On the dark side

Unambitious, repressed, argumentative

At your best

Commanding, energetic, tenacious

Love Loyal and true

People born on March 31 are extremely loyal and faithful lovers once they have found the person who is right for them. Because trial and error is not their style and they want to get things right first time, they may spend many years on their own, possibly even marrying late. Great displays of affection are not for them, but tenderness and togetherness are.

Health Express yourself

People born on this day need to make sure they don’t repress their feelings so much that it affects their physical and emotional health, making them prone to stress, depression, lowered immunity, and high blood pressure. It is important for them to find a way to express themselves, and time spent with friends and loved ones is essential. Vigorous exercise, such as rock climbing, or exercise that is expressive, such as dancing, are highly recommended as these will help them open up. As far as diet is concerned, they need to ensure they make meals more a social occasion, limiting their intake of alcohol and saturated fat. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to open up more, as would hobbies such as art, writing and pottery.

Career Born business people

These people have the determination and the flexibility to achieve great success in the worlds of business, politics, education, and public service, but their commanding presence will serve them well in any field. In their choice of career they should make sure that they don’t get stuck in a rut and miss out on opportunities for travel, change and promotion.

Destiny To encourage others to work alongside them

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to relax their expectation of constant control. Once they are able to recognize the need to express themselves emotionally, their destiny is to encourage others to work alongside them and follow their energetic and determined example.
