Feelings should follow behavior

Lucky people don’t always feel happy but they have learned that the power of their lives lies in positive action and behavior, no matter how scared or resistant they feel.

Intelligence, imagination, compassion, and courage are associated with those born on May 25. They are a study in paradox, sometimes being as much a puzzle to themselves as they are to others.

These people know how to fight for what they believe in. They have a strong sense of honor and personal responsibility to which they will cling regardless of the pressures imposed by those less principled. This does not mean they are intellectually rigid, for they often possess a sharp and inquisitive mind, allowing them to embrace new ideas. They are bold and courageous, but are also sensitive and willing to devote their energy and communication skills to improving the lot of those less fortunate. Although they have more than enough courage to go it alone, their favored approach is to inspire a group of like-minded individuals who are equally enthusiastic, principled and progressive.

With a tendency to be philosophically inclined, when it comes to the world of feelings, however, they can come across as cool and aloof. They have high expectations not only of themselves but also of others, and do need to learn to be more flexible and tolerant. They should therefore get in touch with their feelings and the feelings of others because if they don’t, however successful they are in their professional life or in their ability to encourage social reform, they are likely to feel repressed and unfulfilled.

The childhood and teens of these people may have been emotionally isoloating or difficult in some way but fortunately after the age of twenty-seven they focus on their emotional life, becoming aware of the need for a foundation or center to build from. They need to take advantage of these opportunities, because once they are able to ground themselves emotionally they will feel less frustrated. They will discover that their courage in the face of opposition and their compassion for others are not incompatible but highly compatible energies, being the key to their potential for making a difference and improving human life—be it in the global or personal sense.

On the dark side

Unforgiving, cold, repressed

At your best

Honorable, caring, bold

Love Lighten up a little

Sometimes people born on May 25 can be too serious for their own good; they need to make sure they incorporate plenty of fun into their relationship to keep it alive. If they do find themselves disappointed in love, they tend to blame themselves and their lack of judgment but they need to understand that, in the world of feelings, sometimes the heart can be stronger than the head.

Health Try a cool new look

People born on this day tend to present a rather cold front to the world and they need to make sure that this doesn’t distance them from friends and loved ones. If they can learn to express themselves more and have more fun, they can complement their cool head with a cool look. They need to make sure they don’t become too fixed in their ways regarding diet, and they would benefit from greater variety and flexibility; eating small meals and snacks instead of three big meals is the way forward. They should also get out of their exercise rut and experiment with some cross-training. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the colors yellow or orange will encourage them to feel warmer and more connected to others.

Career Born humanitarians

These people have pronounced leadership potential and could gain great fulfillment in blazing a political or humanitarian trail in psychology or the healing professions. They may on the other hand prefer a career that makes the most of their communication skills, such as sales, law, music, art, and journalism. Alternatively they may be drawn to careers in computers, engineering and philosophy.

Destiny To implement their ideological convictions

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be less judgmental of themselves and others. Once they are able to be more tolerant, their destiny is to implement their ideological convictions with their prodigious vigor and determination.
