Luck maker

Play to your strengths

Lucky people are not the most talented or clever people in the world but they have learned to play to their strengths, highlighting their positives rather than their negatives.

The goal-orientated individuals born on October 26 are perhaps the most hardworking individuals of the entire year. They are ambitious and conscientious but their motivation isn’t money or success but power, and they are at their best when they are organizing and managing others. Although these people are hungry for power, this is not to say that they are lonely, power-crazed egomaniacs. Quite the opposite; they simply believe that organizing people to work collectively is the most effective way to achieve progress. And with their ability to focus on the distant goal, while at the same time orchestrating the collective effort of others, they are gifted and inspired leaders whose dedication and authority inspire respect. More often than not, they will be found planning events, serving on committees or putting structures in place for community reform. Their desire to manage people, to plan and put systems in place extends as much to their personal life as it does to their professional life, and they will expend a lot of energy trying to get others to think along the same lines as them. If others agree with them then their loving, affectionate qualities surface; the opposite is true if others disagree with them, and they can be extremely cold and disinterested to the unconverted.

Before the age of twenty-six people born on this day may find that their progress is blocked by crippling shyness, but after the age of twenty-six there is a turning point that offers them opportunities to grow in confidence and self-belief. They may become more optimistic and may wish to expand their mental outlook, perhaps through learning or through contact with foreign places or people. Whatever career path they eventually choose, they will often find themselves coordinating and directing others.

Outstanding professional success is strongly associated with this birthday. However, to ensure that this magic extends to their personal life as well, they need to trust their intuition more and remember that the greater good is not always served by suppression of originality, and that includes their own.

On the dark side

Obsessive, rigid, dull

At your best

Cooperative, organized, perceptive

Love Loyalty and trust

One thing people born on October 26 can’t plan or organize is love. As a result they have a tendency to repress their need for emotional intimacy even though intimacy is good for them as it can help them release tension and stress. Once in a close relationship, however, they will be willing to show their profound depths; but this can only occur in an atmosphere of trust.

Health Weighty issues

People born on this day may struggle with weight issues during certain periods of their life, particularly when they are stressed or are starting a new routine. They should ensure that the number they read on the scales does not dictate the mood they are in for the rest of the day; tossing away the scales and relying on their common sense and clothes size as a weight guide would be far more beneficial. Paying attention to their digestive health, as well as the nutrients they eat, will help boost their metabolism; so too will a regular exercise routine involving around 30 minutes of aerobic activity a day, and three to five toning sessions a week to give their body definition. Fad diets and extreme exercise routines are not recommended as these can slow their metabolism right down. Drinking plenty of water, avoiding saturated fat, alcohol and caffeine and increasing their intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains are recommended. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color yellow will encourage them to be more spontaneous and self-confident.

Career Born conductors

These people are well suited to careers in politics, community work, business, accountancy, banking, and social events organization. They may also be drawn to law, science, medicine, social reform, the caring professions, administration, and the world of music and theater.

Destiny To demonstrate the value of synergy to the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to leave enough flexibility in their plans for the unexpected. Once they are able to go with the flow a little more, their destiny is to organize, coordinate and motivate others to reach a collective goal.

Power Thought
