Luck maker

Tell it like it is

Tell it like it is and don’t be someone you are not. Lucky people never try to be what they are not; this earns them the trust, respect and support of others.

People born on May 11 are blessed with a highly developed and independent aesthetic sense that refuses to be constrained by the rules, regulations and ideals of others. They live in a world of their own creation and enjoy adding their colorful, light-hearted but extremely distinctive flair to any situation they are in.

These highly creative people excel at making what is seemingly mundane or routine appear entertaining or new. They are the people who can turn household chores into games or study assignments into exciting challenges. With a burning desire to learn the truth for themselves, their approach causes them to challenge, side-step or walk all over conventional thinking. Their questing and imaginative powers are supplemented by their powers of perception, originality and stubborn tenacity.

Among the many gifts with which people born on this day are blessed is their ability to make life more colorful and exciting, and for that they earn the gratitude of others, but unfortunately not always their respect. This is because, although they are brilliant at inspiring and entertaining, they can get so immersed in their dream world that they lose touch with reality. Although some have a talent for making a profit from their unusual thoughts, others with less self-mastery often struggle to make their dreams and imaginations work. They should never lose touch of their audience when expressing their unique creativity. If they don’t stick to the facts and what is realistically workable, they may be branded highly intelligent but ineffective.

Until the age of forty they will focus on change and new interests. This is often a period of study and experimentation, and they need to be careful not to lose themselves in exaggeration or fantasy. After the age of forty-one their sensitivity increases and they place more emphasis on home and family life. They need to understand that they have the potential to achieve something better than the admiration of others; that is, the respect and undying loyalty of all those lucky enough to wander across their path.

On the dark side

Unrealistic, eccentric, detached

At your best

Creative, distinctive, fun-loving

Love Enchanted realm

People born on May 11 have the ability to add youthfulness and sparkle to their relationships. They also love to be around children and are perfect playmates for them. Because of their tendency to become immersed in work, they may have long periods alone but they are at their happiest and their best when they are in a loving and supportive relationship.

Health Hypochondriac tendencies

People born on this day are highly imaginative and if they are prone to worry they may feel anxious about their health when they have no reason to be. It is important for them to stay as real as possible and, if they have any health concerns, to discuss them with their doctor instead of endlessly worrying about them. As far as diet is concerned, they would thrive best on a diet based on whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables, lean meat, and oily fish, as diets high in sugar, salt, saturated fat, dairy, and refined and processed foods could trigger food allergies or intolerances. Moderate to mild exercise is recommended, as it will help boost their immune system and help them feel more grounded in the real world. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color orange encourages them to attract much-needed warmth, physical enjoyment and security.

Career Born entrepreneurs

These people may be drawn to careers in research but they are also sensitive creatures with an interest in the human condition and this may draw them toward the judiciary or politics. Highly imaginative and creative, they may also find ways to make a success of their original ideas in business or by working for themselves. This birthday also suggests musical, creative or dramatic talent which can be a commercial success.

Destiny To blaze an innovatory trail through life

The life path of people born on this day is to make sure they don’t lose sight of what is real in their life. Once they are able to stay more objective, their destiny is to blaze an innovatory trail through life that entertains, inspires and informs others.
