Luck maker

Look better and act dumber

When you are self-deprecating you bring people closer to you and make them more likely to want to help you, because you are admitting you have the same fears as everyone else.

Although they can sometimes come across as conformist and sincere, as soon as people born on November 4 start interacting with others their provocative nature shines through. They have a talent for uncovering hidden weaknesses and insecurities in people and situations, and for luring everyone they meet into their tangled web of controversy and excitement.

They are extremely persuasive individuals, and in their minds they know that they have the ability to win over almost anyone to their point of view. This is not to say they are manipulative. Quite the opposite; they are principled and honest. It is just that it is almost impossible for them to believe there are any alternatives to the truth as they see it.

Above all, these people are ice breakers wherever they find themselves. They make full use of the element of surprise and are somehow able to articulate what is unspoken or unacceptable in the most humorous or convincing way, so that others are lured into either agreeing with them or at least reviewing their own position. Unfortunately, however, their shock tactics can work against them. They may, for example, find that the situations they have stirred up have got out of hand or the views they are expressing have truly overwhelmed or offended.

Until the age of eighteen, they may have come across as shy or intense. After the age of nineteen, however, that slowly recedes and is replaced by a growing need for freedom and the desire to expand their horizons through study, education or travel. After the age of forty-eight there is another turning point when the emphasis is on financial and emotional security. Whatever age they are, the key to success is to use their common sense and become more aware of the way their stance toward life is affecting others and, ultimately, themselves. When greater self-awareness and self-discipline are combined with their intuitive perception and natural leadership qualities, they are capable of achieving not controversial or shocking but truly spectacular results in life.

On the dark side

Overwhelming, provocative, tactless

At your best

Magnetic, exciting, supportive

Love Inventive and intelligent

People born on November 4 are quick to throw themselves into social situations that can maximize their chances of attracting admirers and potential partners. Once they learn to love themselves for who they are and overcome hurts from their past, they have the potential to attract and hold on to their ideal partner—someone inventive and intelligent like themselves.

Health The mind-body link

People born on this day need to be aware of the powerful link between their physical and emotional or mental health. When they are feeling run down or have succumbed to a bout of illness, the chances are a period of stress, uncertainty or unhappiness was the trigger. Although a certain amount of illness keeps their immune system in working order, if they find they are lurching from one infection or virus to another they need to take a long hard look at their life and relationships to see where the weakness might lie. It is important to ensure they schedule into their busy diary plenty of time for rest and relaxation. As far as diet is concerned, the fresher and more natural their food the better; they could have digestive upsets if they eat food too rich in additives and preservatives. Regular exercise, in particular long walks in the park or countryside, is highly recommended to help them gain a sense of balance and perspective. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will help bring greater harmony and hope.

Career Born social reformers

These people need to be in careers where they can reach the widest possible audience, so they may be drawn to acting, writing, journalism, and performing, or even politics and social reform. Other career options that might appeal include business, commerce, medicine, psychology, education, and the worlds of religion or philosophy.

Destiny To instigate reform

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to take a more neutral, balanced perspective. Once they are able to tone down their enthusiasm to a level that supports but does not offend, their destiny is to effectively present their viewpoints to instigate reform.
