Luck maker

Think before you act

It sounds simple, but taking time out to think about the pros and cons before you make a decision shows that you are prepared and therefore less likely to attract bad luck.

Other people find themselves instantly drawn to the natural charisma and playful charm of people born on May 13. These untamed spirits follow their instincts and, although they often clash with the conventions and restrictions placed upon them by society, their wild-child presence always has an electrifying effect on others.

These people are often self-taught in some way and their approach to situations and people is easy and natural. They have the ability to win friends quickly and easily and, as a result, to attract good fortune. Unfortunately, this can sometimes make them the object of envy or resentment. They should be aware of the effect their success and popularity have on others; if necessary they should tone down their lighthearted approach or find the appropriate level of intensity for their audience.

In keeping with their wild-child personality, they find practical concerns and routine boring and unfulfilling. With a love of movement, change and variety, if they do find themselves stuck or restricted in anyway, they may get depressed or behave recklessly. Although this butterfly approach makes them fascinating individuals with a wealth of knowledge and experience, if those born on this day delved more deeply into subjects or situations they would discover how enriching and enlightening a more intense knowledge or commitment can be. Before the age of thirty-seven they should deepen their approach and outlook; after the age of thirty-eight they may be more concerned with emotional commitment.

Although they appear to breeze through life, it’s highly likely that at some point a significant event, generally one with unpleasant or painful consequences, will have given them the impetus to focus on their more serious side and have concern for the welfare of others. When this newfound earnestness and sense of purpose is combined with the enthusiastic enjoyment of life that is their defining feature, the possibilities for them to achieve success in all areas of their lives are limitless.

On the dark side

Wild, flighty, superficial

At your best

Impulsive, natural, energetic

Love In too deep

People born on May 13 love deeply and romantically; although they believe that a relationship should be for life, they often forget that relationships need work. They are usually very fortunate in attracting admirers but, as with everything in their lives, they do need to exercise a certain amount of discrimination before they take the plunge.

Health Body talk

People born on this day don’t tend to have major problems with their health because they are often very much in tune with their bodies, eating only when they are hungry, exercising when they feel the need to be active and so on. If they do suffer from weight problems or poor health, learning to listen to their body’s signals and seeking medical advice on diet and exercise will get them back on track. They need to steer clear of recreational drugs, as these will have an extremely damaging effect on their health and well-being. The best kind of therapy for people born on this day, apart from fresh air and exercise, is committing to study or increasing their knowledge in one specific area. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color blue will encourage them to be less impulsive and more logical in their approach.

Career Born designers

These people have the independence and impulsive creativity to excel in careers in the arts, music, dance, and design. Their natural charm may also attract them to people-related careers such as sales, public relations, teaching, and law; but whatever career they choose, their chances of success are high.


The life path of people born on this day is to learn to commit themselves on a deeper level to people and situations. Once they can find it within themselves to delve deeper, their destiny is to invigorate, inspire and—if necessary—shock others into progressive ways of thinking and doing things.
