Luck maker

Get carried away

If you want to attract luck you need to ignore any advice you may have been given about not going overboard and allow yourself to get carried away with passion and excitement for what you want because this is what encourages others to want to help you.

People born on September 2 are idealistic and lively individuals with an egalitarian view of the world. They are usually the first to defend the rights of everyone, and when presenting their opinions they make sure they are understood by everyone, no matter what their background or level of education.

They cannot tolerate pretension or unnecessary complications of any kind, placing a high value on simplicity of language, behavior and action. Other people always know where they stand with them and they also know that, whatever the circumstances or situation, they will be given a fair hearing and a fair chance to prove themselves. In fact, these people place such a high value on egalitarianism and fair play that when in direct competition with others they will quite happily take a step back and allow others to race ahead, even if they are well qualified for the job or due for advancement. It is important for them to understand that pushing ahead when their talents merit it does not mean they are becoming pretentious or ego-centered; it simply means that they are placing a value on themselves.

After the age of twenty they will have an increased need for partnership and relating to others for the next thirty years, and again it is important for them not to undervalue themselves and realize that equal relationships with others can be indispensable to achieving their high ideals of fairness, honesty, inclusion, and respect. There are also opportunities during this time for them to develop their creativity; they should take advantage of these to inject some inspiration into their working life. After the age of fifty-one there is a turning point when they are more likely to get in touch with their personal power.

Whatever age they are, the sooner they realize that they don’t live to work but work to live, the more fulfilling their lives will be, and the greater their chances of discovering their outstanding potential for exerting a beneficial and inspirational influence on others.

On the dark side

Workaholic, passive, uninspired

At your best

Fair, direct, vital

Love Loyal and loving

Whether they realize it or not, people born on September 2 can either subordinate themselves completely to the needs of their partner or exercise a subtle control in their relationship. Both approaches are a direct contradiction to their egalitarian approach to life. At times hidden insecurities may indicate that instead of being their usual diplomatic self they can become argumentative and restless; but in general, when they learn to place a value on themselves they are loyal, loving and supportive partners.

Health Weight training

Although people born on this day are often bursting with vitality and energy, they need to make sure they don’t push themselves too hard. They are particularly prone to stress-related digestive disorders, and a healthy, balanced diet along with stress-management techniques such as making sure they have plenty of time for rest and relaxation or simply laughing more often will help counteract these. They would benefit from learning the basics of good nutrition and cooking, not only because it will ensure they get all the nutrients they need, but also because it will also take their mind off work. Regular daily exercise that is moderate to vigorous is recommended, as are regular weight training or toning sessions. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will encourage them to find a better balance between their professional and emotional life.

Career Born educators

These people are great team players and enjoy work that has plenty of variety. They may be drawn to careers in the media, music, sport, social work, or public relations, or toward banking, the stock market and accountancy. Their analytical skills may suggest a career in education, writing or science, and their egalitarian spirit a career in health care.

Destiny To exert a powerful and positive influence on others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to balance their own needs with those of others. Once they have understood that being fair does not have to mean being happy with second best, their destiny is to exert a powerful and positive influence on others.

Power Thought
