Luck maker

Think win-win

Lucky people understand that life isn’t about competition or getting ahead, and that the pie of success is big enough for everyone, themselves included, to have a slice.

In whatever situation they find themselves, the favored approach of people born on October 2 is a direct one. They like to talk, think and act quickly and decisively, and the graceful ease and certainty with which they go about their business endow them with tremendous potential.

These people will not hesitate to let others know exactly where they stand, but what impresses others most about them is that they are compelling conversationalists with considerable knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. It will not be unusual to find them deep in conversation with a sparkle in their eye because they love to stimulate their minds with intelligent talk. Although they enjoy talking, they also understand the importance of listening and are forever hungry for new information and ideas, eager to hear what others have to contribute. In fact, they tend to be more at home in the world of ideas and words than in the world of feelings and emotions.

Although the lively, inquisitive and candid approach of these people is refreshing and exciting for some people, for those more sensitive they can come across as unfeeling, ruthless and upsetting. It is therefore important for their psychological growth and their professional development that they learn to express their disagreement or disapproval in ways that are not overly negative or confrontational.

At the age of twenty they will reach a turning point that highlights a growing need for emotional change and personal transformation. In the years that follow they are likely to become more committed and decisive, and it is essential that they are more sensitive in their relationships with others and don’t hide behind a mask of cynicism. This is because when they are able to lean toward the positive rather than the negative, and can encourage rather than discourage people with their intelligent insights, these charming conversationalists have the potential not just to entertain and enlighten, but to enlist and direct the support of others in the collective pursuit of their inspirational cause.

On the dark side

Cutting, angry, undemonstrative

At your best

Charming, interesting, charismatic

Love Feelings run deep

Even though they are gregarious and friendly enough to make friends and win admirers, it isn’t always easy for people born on October 2 to open up to their partners about how they really feel. They need to feel secure in a relationship before they allow their true feelings to emerge; when this finally happens, their partner is very fortunate because he or she will have a generous, loving, loyal, and incredibly supportive lover.

Health Mind and body, remember!

People born on this day often have extremely active minds because they are constantly exercising it with study, reading, conversation, travel, and new experiences. When it comes to their bodies, however, they may not have such a proactive regime; it is important for them to make sure they incorporate activity into their daily lives. Because they are prone to sudden outbursts of anger they may be accident prone and, to avoid potential injury to themselves or others, stress- or anger-management therapies are recommended. As far as diet is concerned, because they tend to get absorbed in work they need to remind themselves to eat every few hours to keep their metabolism high. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to get in touch with their feelings, and the color blue will encourage them to be calmer and more in control when mood swings or sudden bursts of anger threaten to overwhelm them.

Career Born mediators

These people will often be drawn to careers in public relations or occupations dealing with the public in some way, such as the media, social work or negotiation. They may also excel as teachers, psychologists and counselors, or may choose to explore their creativity as artists or designers. Other possible career choices include sales, promotion, mediation, or arbitration.

Destiny To express themselves and their beliefs honestly

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to approach others with greater sensitivity. Once they have allowed others into their lives and their hearts, their destiny is, by example, to encourage others to express themselves and their beliefs honestly.
