You can’t force the flow

When unforeseen circumstances derail you or slow you down, you must be flexible enough to go with the flow that has been given you, not the one you designed.

People born on October 24 have an irresistible intensity about them that draws others to them. They are ruled by extreme emotions that they battle to control, but one of their greatest strengths—and the reason others tend to admire or aspire to be like them—is that they can play it cool, even when they feel totally insecure or out of control on the inside.

These people get absorbed in their work and feel compelled to present, often with dramatic flair, their discoveries or revelations to the world. This doesn’t mean they are exhibitionists. It just means that they take their profession, craft or work extremely seriously and pride themselves on their accomplishments. Their intensity about what they do means that others can’t help but be magnetically drawn into their world.

The upside of all this intensity is that they have enormous potential to shine in their careers, perhaps rising to the very top. In their personal life it means that they can fall passionately in love with someone to the exclusion of all else. The downside is that they can neglect their family and their emotional life in preference for their work. They can also become rather controlling, jealous and interfering, and this can alienate them from the support of those who can give them a much-needed sense of perspective.

Fortunately, around the age of twenty-nine there is a turning point which highlights a need for freedom and a more expansive outlook on life. They will be presented with opportunities to broaden their horizons through a quest for truth, education or travel. It is important for their psychological growth that they take advantage of these opportunities to diversity and explore, because it will help keep them in touch with the joy of life. Whatever age they are they should never lose their ability to devote themselves with enthusiasm to their work; when this is balanced with greater tolerance, flexibility and open-mindedness, they have outstanding potential not just to realize their ambitions but to enjoy the fruits of them as well.

On the dark side

Obsessive, jealous, stressed

At your best

Hypnotic, dramatic, authoritative

Love Scared of love

People born on October 24 are extremely passionate and, once in a relationship, they will do all they can to keep the fires of love burning intensely. But committing to a relationship in the first place could be a big issue for them. Part of them is scared of love or being broken-hearted in a relationship, so the easiest solution is to avoid having one or to end a relationship before it starts getting serious. Trusting their instincts and allowing themselves to surrender is risky, but is the only way for them to find the fulfillment in love that they crave.

Health Go green

Prone to stress and tension, people born on this day need to get out into the countryside every now and again to relax and get as much fresh air and exercise as possible. Walking in green fields or among trees will be extremely beneficial because wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green has a calming effect on their minds. Regular vacations and scheduled periods of relaxation in their busy day are also important to help them keep a sense of balance and perspective. As far as diet is concerned, they need to increase their intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains and they should not neglect the importance of regular exercise, again preferably in the fresh air. Starting a hobby and spending more time with friends and loved ones are also highly recommended.

Career Born researchers

Whatever career they choose, these people are likely to thrive because of the strength of their dedication and focus. They may find themselves drawn to careers in public relations, sales, publishing, promotion, agency work, show business, education, research, the music industry, counseling, the healing and caring professions, and the sport and leisure industries.

Destiny To lead by example

The life path of people born on this day is to do less and be more. Once they have understood the importance of a balanced lifestyle for success and happiness, their destiny is to lead by their dedicated and focused example.
