Luck maker

Be grateful in the present

Focus on what is good about your life right now because gratitude, along with a positive outlook, is the prerequisite for a lucky and a happy life.

People born on May 19 have a highly developed sense of fair play and an ability to put forward their case convincingly and credibly. They will speak out eloquently when they notice any injustice and act decisively to ensure positive changes are made.

One of the greatest strengths of these people is their natural ability to convince others that changes need to be made and action needs to be taken. Such is their persuasive power that after spending time with them others often find themselves feeling energized, focused and ready to commit themselves to a new course of action. There is a danger, however, that their magnetic and inspiring communicative skills can be used for unworthy causes. When this is the case, their charisma and eloquence can slip into dishonesty; they should avoid this path at all costs as it will only lead to frustration.

Until the age of thirty-two there is an emphasis in the lives of people born on this day on learning, writing, speech, and study, and, because this coincides with their student years, their talent for communication will be given plenty of opportunities to express itself and develop. In fact, education in some form is vital to bring out the best of their potential. During this time they will also begin to appreciate the powerful effect they have on others; as a consequence, they need to ensure they don’t become manipulative or overbearing. After the age of thirty-two they become more focused on emotional intimacy, family and security; these years can be highly fulfilling and rewarding.

Inventive and original, people born on this day have a progressive philosophy in life and whatever they choose to focus their energies on, their arguments and ideals are always worth listening to. Once they learn to strike a balance between standing up for their own ideas and being receptive to the ideas of others, not only are able to persuade others of the importance of their ideals, they can also become excellent representatives for others less fortunate than themselves.

On the dark side

Manipulative, frustrated, dishonest

At your best

Persuasive, fair, energetic

Love Examine your motives

People born on May 19 have a great deal of charisma, and there will be no shortage of admirers. Problems may arise, however, when social status, popularity or appearance govern their choice of partner rather than their heart. It is important for them to examine their motives for becoming overly concerned with their own material status and that of others.

Health Exercise caution

People born on this day have a wild streak about them and as a result can be accident prone. They need to be cautious when it comes to sports and exercise, and also when traveling. This doesn’t mean, however, that they should avoid exercise. Quite the opposite, as exercise is essential for these energetic people and without it they can become stressed or depressed. It just means they should listen to their bodies and not push themselves or take unnecessary risks. As far as diet is concerned, they may be among those fortunate people who can eat what they like but if they aren’t getting plenty of exercise, eating five or six lighter meals and snacks a day instead of two or three big meals will help keep their weight under control. Herbal infusions, such as chamomile tea, are highly recommended to help them relax and should be preferred to caffeine, which they tend to consume in excess.

Career Born songwriters

These people thrive in careers in which they can motivate, inform and inspire, such as education, politics and the caring professions. Their original mind may also draw them into careers in philosophy or scientific research, and humanitarian aspirations may steer them toward social reform or religion. Their way with words may express itself through speaking, writing, singing, or the world of entertainment in general.

Destiny To become a representative for their peers

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to use their persuasive talents wisely. Once they have learned to strike a balance between their own needs and the benefits of others, their destiny is to become a representative for their peers and perhaps their generation.
