Just do it!

When lucky people long to do something they find ways to do it, even when they feel afraid. So if there is something you long to do, go ahead-just do it! You will feel fantastic.

There is something radiant about the positive and seductive energy of people born on May 23 that others find impossible to ignore. Their defining feature, however, isn’t their charisma and sex appeal, but their ingenuity. They are gifted problem solvers who generously give a lot of their time and energy to help others resolve their problems in both practical and emotional ways.

As well as being inventive problem solvers, they are natural communicators. They can present a case convincingly and offer viable solutions. When faced with a dilemma they may find that they have brilliant eureka moments when the answer just pops into their mind. They have a natural flair for everything imaginative but instead of talking about creating, as they are prone to do, they need to get on and do it! This is because it is in activity rather than discussion that these intuitive individuals release their inventiveness.

They aren’t motivated by a need to be the center of attention or to assume leadership, getting tremendous satisfaction from simply helping others solve professional and personal woes. The downside of this is that while they attack the problems of others with great energy and insight, they often neglect their own affairs. This can have negative consequences when others take advantage of their generosity and willingness to help. It is vital for their psychological growth that they learn to speak up for their own needs and interests; if they don’t, this can lead to frustration and lack of fulfillment.

Until the age of twenty-nine there is an emphasis on information gathering, communication and learning; after the age of thirty they are likely to become more sensitive and security conscious. It is important during this turning point that they learn to say “no” to the demands of others and avoid sacrificing their needs completely to home, family and loved ones. They need to accept that people can and do value them for the energetic, innovative, positive, and inspiring person that they are, and not for what they can do for them.

On the dark side

Unaware, passive, self-effacing

At your best

Sensual, ingenious, convincing

Love Meeting of minds and hearts

People born on May 23 are attracted to people who are their equal intellectually. Unfortunately, though, they often neglect the importance of emotional compatibility and may find that their generosity of spirit and willingness to subordinate their needs to their loved one are taken advantage of. They need to be in a relationship where minds and hearts meet and where both parties are willing to give and take.

Health Home cooking

People born on this day need to make sure that they don’t neglect their health and well-being for the sake of others. As far as diet is concerned, they should make sure it is healthy and balanced. If they live alone, rather than eating erratically or on the go, they should make sure they nurture themselves with home cooking and foods that are as fresh and natural as possible. Exercise will be vital to boosting their immune system, their self-esteem and body image, and fast-paced sports such as tennis, squash, football, and netball are highly recommended, as well as individual sports such as jogging, brisk walking, swimming, and cycling. Wearing, surrounding themselves with and meditating on the color yellow will increase their confidence and self-esteem.

Career Born advisor

These people are often drawn to the caring and healing professions but the performing arts, teaching and diplomacy may also appeal, as they are gifted communicators. They are likely to be skilled with their hands, so may be involved in creative and artistic pursuits. Law, counseling or psychology could also provide an outlet for their talent in offering advice and information.

Destiny To be at the service of progress

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to focus on their own needs as much as they do on others. Once they have learned to be more self-nurturing, their destiny is to place their prodigious energy at the service of progress, both their own and others’.
