Luck maker

Honor your inner child

Children are a never-ending source of amazement and insight. They can teach you a lot about yourself, what’s important in life and how to be happy.

Although they are blessed with imaginative and progressive minds, people born on November 8 can come across as serious or intense. They tend to be attracted to unusual subjects that others would consider borderline, shadowy or dark. In some cases their interests may even be considered peculiar or, at the very least, out of the ordinary.

They are brilliant at concentrating their energy on achieving their goals, and this, combined with their courage and ambition, augurs well for professional success. Many will attract money their way, rise to the top of their career or make a comfortable standard of living an important goal in their lives. Sometimes the desire to achieve materially can be so strong that it becomes overpowering in its intensity; it is important for these people to remember what is truly important in life.

It is their curiosity which draws these people to the shadowy aspects of life, and a part of them longs to push the boundaries of knowledge and experience to their limits. If they are able to maintain objectivity they have the potential to be innovating pioneers; but if they can’t keep their distance, there is a real risk of their becoming too closely identified with the darker aspects of the world and the shadow side of themselves.

Until the age of thirty-three, the urge for these people to explore the unconventional is at its strongest; during these years they need to remember that, as fascinating as the unconventional is, there is also much to be learned from what is routine. After the age of thirty-four there is a turning point when they start to become more practical, disciplined and goal-orientated in the realization of their objectives. Whatever age they are, however, the key to their success is their ability to confront their inner fears rather than seeking it outside. When they can do this, their hunger to explore the meaning of life will inevitably draw them away from the darkness within to the light of understanding, compassion, love, and what is truly important in life.

On the dark side

Obsessed, overly serious, addictive

At your best

Deep, driven, inquisitive

Love Strong and passionate desires

Although they may come across as somewhat reserved or serious, people born on November 8 have strong and passionate desires. They may be tempted to date people who are unusual or dangerous in some way, but their chances of happiness will increase significantly if they date someone clever and interesting, but also grounded and secure.

Health Overspending

People born on this day like to spend, and it is important for them to make sure that this doesn’t get out of hand, as being in debt will make them feel anxious and unsettled. As for alcohol, gambling and recreational drugs, they need to avoid them too as they will lead them down a dangerous path. Because they find it hard to open up to others they may bottle up their emotions; this can have a damaging effect, so counseling or therapy might prove beneficial. As far as diet is concerned, the emphasis needs to be on fresh, natural or organic, and the more colorful fruits and vegetables they have on their plate the better. Regular moderate exercise is recommended, in particular yoga and tai chi which can encourage their minds and their bodies to become more flexible. Above all, spending more time relaxing and having fun is highly recommended to help them keep a sense of perspective and be a little less intense. Wearing the color orange will help them feel more spontaneous and encourage them to reach out to others.

Career Born criminologists

These people are well suited to careers in which they can express their creativity and indulge their curiosity; they may make superb criminologists, psychologists, writers, musicians, or pioneering scientists and engineers. Other careers that might appeal include administration, education, counseling and law, or occupations of a philosophical or religious nature.

Destiny To expand the frontiers of human knowledge

The life path of people born on this day is to balance the shadowy and the lighter sides of their personality. Once they have developed a healthy sense of balance and perspective, their destiny is to explore the unconventional and expand the frontiers of human knowledge.
