Think like a mirror

A mirror doesn’t judge or give advice. It reflects. The next time you talk to someone, listen to what they are actually saying, not to what you want to hear.

Although they are perceptive and creative thinkers, those born on May 27 are generally not interested in philosophical ideas but in sharing their knowledge with the wider world. Indeed their greatest desire is to find ways to benefit humanity as a whole, their favored approach being to take action to realize their progressive ideals.

Blessed with a healthy dose of self-confidence, they have the ability to keep their cool during the most difficult circumstances. Although very interested in the human condition and concerned for the well-being of others, they can detach emotionally. Others may criticize them for sometimes being cold and impersonal, but they instinctively realize that getting too emotionally involved in situations weakens their ability to offer effective help.

The steadiness of these people is complemented by their strength of purpose and infectious optimism. Their elegance and sophistication brighten every situation and they are generally well respected and liked by those they meet. Unfortunately, their close personal relationships may be less harmonious because they often devote most of their time and energy to work. Their strong self-belief draws success and opportunities to them; if self-belief is lacking, this may be because they have chosen a career not aligned to their talents. Fortunately, there are several pivotal moments in their lives which offer them opportunities to rethink their life; these will occur at age 25, age 30, age 40 and age 55. Although their greatest wish is to serve humanity, in the interests of their self-development they should take advantage of these opportunities to re-examine their motivations and strategies.

They find it hard to accept criticism, so their psychological progression depends on their being less controlling and taking on board alternative viewpoints in both their personal and their professional lives. Once they are more flexible in their approach, the prodigious energy and spirit of enterprise of these clever and passionate people will ensure their success as a guide and inspiration to others.

On the dark side

Detached, obsessive, selfish

At your best

Steady, dedicated, elegant

Love Listen, really listen

It is important for them toreally listen to what their partner has to say as this will make their relationship more harmonious. They are attracted to people who are as hard-working as they are, but ideally they need someone with gentleness to help them open up emotionally.

Health Get up and go

People born on this day can lose themselves in their work and this is dangerous as it can make them neglect their diet and health. They may smoke and drink but are strongly advised to cut down or give up both. They are also prone to depression but often it is reactive depression that occurs when they do not feel fulfilled in their professional life. Taking time out to talk to mentors, friends, family, or even a counselor would help them get back on the right track. They are naturally good at all forms of exercise; if they don’t have an exercise routine already, they should set one up because it will boost their health, manage their waistline and give them an outlet for the release of tension. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will increase feelings of warmth and security.

Career Born doctors

These people have the skills and personality to excel in the medical, teaching, legal, or diplomatic professions as well as the artistic or sporting realms in which they can express themselves more freely. They may change careers a number of times in their lives, but whatever they eventually settle on, the opportunity to guide and care for others in some way is essential for their fulfillment.

Destiny To help other people achieve tangible results

The life task of people born on this day is to make sure they do not becoming domineering or controlling. Once they have learned to admit that they have personal failings just like everyone else, their destiny is to help other people (practically and by example) achieve tangible results.
