Luck maker

Turn rejection into resolve

Lucky people don’t allow rejection to devastate them. However negative a situation seems, there is always something positive you can focus on or something you can learn to improve your chances of success next time.

People born on this day are often known for their strong views and nononsense approach to life. They carry out their work and personal life with the minimum of fuss and are capable of adapting easily to changing situations. Although the image they project is often one of toughness, their greatest desire isn’t to be feared or even admired, but for their intentions and their words to be clearly understood by everyone.

Because they want their message to be understood clearly, they are extremely efficient, no detail ever escaping them. The downside of leaving no room for misinterpretation is that they can tend to repeat themselves, and this can irritate others. They can also be obsessed with doing rather than reflecting. Underneath all this, however, is often an underlying confusion; this confusion is almost what keeps them constantly on the go and can make them explode with anger and frustration. The key to their success is to find some kind of balance between their restlessness and talent for adaptation, and their need for structure and clarity. Neither constant activity nor inaction will bring them fulfillment; this lies somewhere in between.

Between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-one they are likely to have a growing need for personal intimacy and emotional security. This can often be a challenging time for them because their overpowering mind rules their lives; they need to avoid the tendency to squash any sign of weakness and should remember that they, like all people, are a combination of weakness and strength. If they can express this, their loved ones will feel closer to them and others will relate to them more easily. After the age of fifty-two there is a turning point which suggests a period of high creativity, confidence, authority, and strength.

Above all, these people have an air of authority and seriousness about them. Although they will benefit from letting their hair down occasionally, if they can direct their mind to being expansive rather than single-minded, they have the potential to achieve great success and possibly fame.

On the dark side

Compulsive, over-confident, restless

At your best

Confident, clear-sighted, capable

Love No game playing

In relationships people born on May 31 abhor game playing, valuing honesty and loyalty above all else in a relationship. They are very expressive and show their love with plenty of hugs and kisses, affection and love. They tend to be attracted to complicated and passionate people who will benefit from their directness and determination to make love work and work forever.

Health Escapist

Such is their self-confidence that failure is not an option for people born on this day; when they inevitably encounter setbacks and rejection, they can find it hard to cope and are likely to seek solace in escapist activities such as recreational drugs or alcohol. It is extremely important for them to be realistic in their approach to life, allowing themselves the possibility of failure with the understanding that dealing with disappointment is an important part of their psychological growth. There is also a tendency for them to be constantly on the go, never allowing themselves time to rest and to reflect or deal with their fears; it is important for them, therefore, to schedule enough quiet time into their lives so that their nervous system can recharge itself. A healthy, varied diet and plenty of exercise, preferably cross-training, will help them stay strong physically and emotionally. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to step back every now and again and think of higher things.

Career Born writers

These people are especially attracted to every form of art, be it music, dance, singing, drama, painting, sculpture, poetry, or writing; they may also find fulfillment in humanitarian work, teaching and people-related careers, and options such as public relations and promotions.

Destiny To inspire others with their energy and enthusiasm for knowledge

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more realistic in their approach to life. Once they have learned to be less black and white, their destiny is to find inner peace by inspiring others with their prodigious energy and enthusiasm for knowledge.
