Luck maker

Cut your losses

Hanging on for too long in a situation that isn’t working is bad for luck making. What mistakes have you made that can be remedied only by acknowledging that it is time to move on?

People born on September 1 are often obsessed with their work, but this does not mean they are boring and uninspiring. Quite the opposite; they simply find work demanding and fulfilling and will carry out their responsibilities with an infectious enthusiasm and excitement. They also like nothing more than to have their skills or abilities tested and challenged, and are very open to suggestions for improvement. In fact, they have the mental and physical toughness to survive even the most taxing of circumstances, standing their ground with pride in the face of adversity. This makes them the true survivors of the year.

With a tendency to take their work and themselves very seriously, they would benefit greatly from more fun and laughter in their lives, although their energy, enthusiasm, industriousness, and insatiable curiosity for everyone and everything more than compensate. Being so dedicated and full of enjoyment of their work, it’s not surprising that many of them excel in their careers; but sometimes their love of challenge and refusal to give up can work against them. For example, they may find themselves putting up with things that they shouldn’t be putting up with simply because they are unable to move on, find it hard to admit defeat or don’t know when to cut their losses.

After the age of twenty-one, the following thirty years present opportunities for them to develop stronger relationships with those around them, strengthening their intuition; they should take advantage of these opportunities as these will help them improve their timing, so that they can enhance their chances of success by knowing when to hang on and when to quit. During these years they may swing between modesty and confidence, but when they are positive and enthusiastic about a project they have the ability to motivate and energize others.

Whatever age they are, however, their extraordinary mental and physical toughness and fixity of purpose in the pursuit of their goals endow them with the potential for extraordinary and inspiring accomplishments.

On the dark side

Insistent, overworked, overly serious

At your best

Courageous, resilient, hard working

Love New opportunities

The love of discovering all they can about other people may earn people born on September 1 a reputation as a flirt, but once in a relationship to which they are committed they are straightforward and affectionate partners who demand nothing less than complete honesty from their partner. They are attracted to optimistic people who can inspire them with new ideas and new opportunities.

Health Strong physical and mental needs

People born on this day have strong physical and mental needs. It is important for their health and well-being that they keep themselves fit by exercising regularly, and that they keep their mind agile with regular challenges at work or by learning new skills in their spare time. They will probably be highly competitive as far as sporting activities are concerned, and may need to be reminded that a friendly game is just that: a friendly game. When it comes to diet, these people thrive on structure and regular mealtimes and snacks. It’s also better for them not to have their main meal at night as this will interfere with the quality of their sleep. They should therefore breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and eat their evening meal like a pauper. Carrying a quartz crystal around with them will improve their chances of attracting happiness, as will wearing the color orange.

Career Born executives

The highly developed capacity of these people to verbally influence others augurs well for success in advertising, marketing, and sales and retail careers, as well as writing, politics and performing. Other careers that might appeal include management, working for themselves, business, education, research, journalism, the military, and promotion.

Destiny To be agents of advancement and assistance

The life path of people born on this day is to learn when to push forward and when to take a step back. Once they have developed a better sense of timing, their destiny is to act as agents of advancement and assistance.
