Luck maker

Become an apprentice

Lucky people understand that nobody likes a know-all. Demonstrating a sincere willingness and openness to learn will draw other people to you and they will want to help you.

People born on May 24 have a gift for expressing what others feel and for getting to the heart of the matter. Incredibly observant, they are commentators on what they see going on around them and will rarely hesitate to broadcast their often profound and insightful views.

With their love of observing and commenting, people born on this day often have a wealth of information about human nature. They are often obsessed with talking about the relationships of others, and others love their company and highly entertaining tales. Although they will always champion the underdog, they do need to be careful that they don’t betray the confidences of others and that their witty insights don’t dissolve into gossip. Despite being so eloquent about the affairs of others, they are often strangely reticent about discussing their own lives.

Their gift for incisive observation attracts the admiration of other sharp-witted people but they need to watch their tendency to alienate others with one cutting comment too many. They may also close their minds to conflicting opinions so it is important for them to learn the art of diplomacy and to respect the opinions of others. Until the age of twenty-eight they focus on learning and communication but around the age of twenty-nine they may prefer to look for emotional and professional security; the following thirty or so years are when they are likely to come into their own. Around the age of fifty-eight there is another turning point when they enter a period of increased authority, strength and confidence.

As long as these clever and witty people don’t drain their energies with negative criticism and keep their minds positive and inquisitive, their natural vitality, drive, creativity, and ability to clarify the most complicated of situations will keep them investigating new projects and invigorating old ones. They can see possibilities and connections that others might miss and this can take them far; and they will always be fascinating conversationalists.

On the dark side

Caustic, detached, egotistical

At your best

Caring, observant, expressive

Love Inquisitive

People born on May 24 love to explore the inner recesses of their partner’s mind but also the minds of everyone they meet, so any partner may find themselves in the role of diplomatic ally. They need to learn to be more open about their own feelings in a relationship, but when they meet someone they feel comfortable enough to open up to they can be loyal, loving and highly entertaining partners.

Health Not too hot or too cold!

People born on this day don’t tend to complain much about their health; except when they are too hot or too cold, which they can’t tolerate. They are prone to coughs, colds, circulation problems, and physical exhaustion, generally as a result of their fast-paced life. If they can’t find a satisfactory way to relax and unwind, stress or nervous exhaustion could also be a problem. They may have an urge to escape their busy social life and hide away; they should not repress this as they would benefit significantly from time out alone when they can read, relax and connect with their intuition. As far as diet and lifestyle are concerned, they should keep it varied and avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise should be moderate to vigorous and if possible it should be a structured part of their lives rather than ad hoc. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to connect with the peace and stillness within.

Career Born journalists

These people could make great journalists, in particular gossip columnists, but their ability to persuade and inspire others could also mark them out for careers in sales and politics, as well as education, art, design, acting, writing, singing, composing, photography, movie-making, law, and the world of entertainment.

Destiny To entertain, influence and direct others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to accept others as they are. Once they are more relaxed and tolerant of differences of opinion, their destiny is to use their strong communication skills to entertain, influence and direct others.
