Luck maker

Break rules now and again

Lucky people understand that rules are made to be broken. This isn’t to say they break the law but they don’t blindly follow the rules; they use their creativity and originality to work their way around them.

People born on October 28 tend to be very committed to their career and therefore the choice of career is of utmost importance to them. They may take a while to find their vocation, but once they do they nearly always reach the top of the field. This is in part due to the incredible effort they are willing to put in and their eye for detail. One of their biggest fears is being caught unprepared but this is largely unfounded as they are among the most organized and well-prepared individuals of the year.

They will often be completely absorbed in their work to the extent that they don’t have much of a life outside. Although this means that they nearly always reach the very top of their field, which more often than not is dedicated to improving or educating others, there is a heavy price to pay. They may come across as overly serious or preoccupied and, if they haven’t got friends and family to give them a sense of perspective, they are in danger of becoming emotionally isolated, completely losing their spontaneity and ability to have fun.

Until the age of twenty-five they are likely to be at their most serious and intense but after this age there is a turning point that highlights a need for freedom. Opportunities will be presented to them to expand their horizons, whether through travel, further education or study, and it is important that they take advantage of these because they offer them the chance to become a more fully rounded and fulfilled human being, rather than a human working.

Above all, these people are inquisitive individuals with an insatiable desire to explore. Fascinated with the tiny details that can make all the difference, their logical mind gives them the potential to make pioneering contributions to the world. And if they can learn to expend as much energy discovering and preparing themselves for the wonderful adventures life has to offer outside work, they will also be able to create lasting connections with the world.

On the dark side

Workaholic, detached, confused

At your best

Dedicated, detailed, inquisitive

Love Late bloomers

People born on October 28 may start their love life later than is usual, and it may be a while before they gain confidence in the love stakes. At the beginning of a relationship they may come across as reserved and uncertain, but when they finally do open up they can surprise both themselves and their partner with the strength of their passion and emotional confidence.

Health Natural grazers

People born on this day are natural grazers when it comes to eating. They may have been criticized for this tendency early in life, but they were in fact right all along. Eating little and often is far healthier than eating three large square meals; it may explain why people born on this day don’t tend to have too many problems with their weight because snacking regularly keeps their metabolism high. As far as exercise is concerned, they may be rather sedentary, and long hours hunched over a book, desk or computer may have given them eye or back problems. Regular moderate to intense exercise, in particular team sports, is highly recommended, as are dance or yoga classes that can teach them about the importance of correct breathing and posture. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage feelings of warmth and security.

Career Born scientists

These people may find themselves drawn to the world of science and technology, but their desire to benefit others may also draw them to social and humanitarian reform, and community or charity work. Other possible career choices include philosophy, psychology, writing, and education.

Destiny To ensure that progress is made

The life path of people born on this day is to learn not to neglect the areas of their lives that aren’t devoted to work. Once they are able to lead a more balanced life, their destiny is to prepare for and ensure that progress is made.
