Luck maker

Every day is your lucky day

Gratitude and an optimistic attitude are prerequisites for a lucky, happy life. Squeeze them out of your present circumstances however you can.

The articulate individuals born on May 14 are progressive in their outlook and are intellectually far in advance of other members of their generation. Their forward-thinking, progressive outlook allows them to see potential and opportunities that those who are less imaginative may miss.

They are extremely energetic, being propelled forward by their nervous energy and unlimited curiosity. Proud and independent self-starters, they are unlikely to seek help from others but such is the power of their vision that influential people are often standing by to offer assistance if they ask. With the ability to lift whatever enterprise they undertake to the next level, the only way for them to feel more fulfilled is to take on the mantle of progress in some way.

As indefatigable workers who strive for excellence in all areas of their lives, they usually achieve this excellence but there’s a price to pay. Physical and emotional burnout and a high degree of stress and nervous tension are very real dangers for them. It is important that they recognize their limits and, as fascinating as the future is, all they really have is the present moment. This tendency to drive themselves too hard or be extremely critical of their performance is a theme throughout their lives but is especially strong before the age of thirty-six. At the age of thirty-seven they may concentrate on the growing importance of home, family and emotional needs. Then, after the age of sixty-six, they become far more confident and self-assured.

Because people born on this day always have their eye on the future, there may be times when their opinions or visions are misinterpreted or, worse still for them, ridiculed. This can cause them great distress, but if they learn to back down and bide their time, more often than not others will eventually come around to their way of thinking. And once they learn to be less critical of themselves and more patient with others, these progressive souls may well be the ones who come up with ground-breaking ideas capable of changing the world.

On the dark side

Perfectionist, difficult, stressed

At your best

Innovative, articulate, energetic

Love Don’t try too hard.

People born on May 14 often put a lot of effort into their relationship and are the first to blame themselves if something goes wrong. They need to understand that if they are trying too hard to win someone’s affection and admiration, something in the relationship isn’t working. Prone to mood swings, they thrive best with partners who respect their need for freedom but who can also share their interests and keep them mentally active.

Health Stress relief

Stress and related problems such as insomnia and headaches are the biggest risk to health for people born on this day. It is very important for them not to take themselves too seriously and to ensure they have plenty of time for fun and relaxation. They also have a tendency to be extremely stubborn when it comes to their health; accepting that they might be ill can be a serious problem for them. They may also suffer from digestive disorders and from swollen glands, particularly around the throat. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they don’t overindulge in sweet, refined foods and focus on a diet rich in whole grains and natural products. A daily exercise routine will help them feel more in control of their health and their weight. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color green will help them feel more grounded in the present and inspire confidence in others.

Career Born social scientists

These people have the vision to excel in careers in politics, social science, travel, space research, information technology, science, advertising, and investment. They may also be drawn to artistic and creative pursuits such as music, drama, literature, and painting or sculpture. With their love of variety they need to choose a career that does not involve routine, and the media, photography, journalism or working for themselves will all appeal.

Destiny To predict future trends

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to focus just as much of their energies on the present as they do on the future. Once they are able to find that balance, their destiny is to predict future and potentially ground-breaking trends.
