Luck maker

Let others in

Locking everyone out never helps you get in touch with what you want. The more you share your ideas with others, the more others are likely to offer you opportunities.

People born on November 11 will often present an energetic, bright and cheerful face to the world, but to those who know them better this is more often than not a veil masking an intense and original but sometimes troubled personality.

These charismatic individuals know how to appear attractive to others and as a result they tend to get their own way, often without others realizing it because veiling their powerful ambition is, they believe, the best way to win others to their point of view. Above all, they are complex characters with the ability to surprise others with their hidden talents and unexpected sides to their character. Unfortunately, they are often extremely confused about what their motivations are, what they want out of life and in which direction they should be heading. This can obviously have a confusing effect on others, presenting a straightforward, energetic persona and clear-cut goals on the one hand, but manifesting a propensity for anxiety and uncertainty on the other. It is only when they are able to reconcile these two sides of their personality that their potential for success and happiness can finally be unveiled.

Until the age of forty there is a growing need for optimism and expansion through study, travel or a personal quest for meaning in life. If they can find a way to be more assertive in stating what their needs are, and be more flexible and creative when setbacks occur, the promise they may have showed from an early age will manifest. After the age of forty there is a turning point when they are likely to become more pragmatic and realistic in their approach to life.

It is more important than ever during these years that they don’t allow hidden fears and insecurities to plunge them into procrastination, resentment and obscurity This would be a tragedy because, if they can summon the courage to lift their veils, they are destined to shine, contributing their talents and energies to the greater good.

On the dark side

Insecure, dependent, unaware

At your best

Enthusiastic, inspiring, generous

Love In need of guidance

People born on November 11 are sociable and attractive, and their generous nature ensures they will have plenty of friends and admirers. When it comes to close relationships, however, they may find that they are drawn to older or parental figures who can take care of them and offer them support and guidance. As long as they understand this dynamic and don’t abuse it, their potential for success and happiness in love is strong.

Health Boost self-esteem

People born on this day will often be extremely concerned about their appearance and physical health. Although this is a positive thing, they should not go to extremes because this will have the opposite effect from that which was intended, making them feel anxious, tired and unattractive. For example, they should not over-exercise, or go overboard with health and beauty treatments. Reminding themselves of the clich%21ed but true fact that beauty comes from within is important. They would benefit greatly from counseling and therapy to gain a better understanding of themselves; meditation and yoga are also recommended. There is a danger, however, of becoming overdependent on doctors, gurus or health advisors. As far as diet is concerned, they could have addictive personalities and need to limit their intake of alcohol, caffeine, foods high in fat and sugar, and all kinds of recreational drugs. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color yellow will help them feel more confident and in control.

Career Born builders

These people may lean toward careers that involve writing, performing or research, those in which they can demonstrate hands-on skills such as building, repair or technical work. They may also become good psychologists, advisors, lecturers, and teachers. Occupations connected to the public or tourism might appeal, as might community or charity work.

Destiny To assist, direct and inspire others by their example

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to set themselves goals. Once they have found a sense of direction, their destiny is to assist, direct or inspire others with their positive example.
