Luck maker

Turn rejection into a challenge

Although it is important for you to accept the part you played when setbacks occur, rejection spells failure only if you don’t believe in yourself.

Those born on September 3 are remarkably determined individuals, a quality that those who do not know them well may not appreciate until a situation arises to encourage them to be more confrontational. Generally, they prefer a gentler, conciliatory approach, believing that more can be achieved through communication than combat. This personal style can be highly effective but it can cause others to underestimate them or misjudge their iron will.

They are blessed with a sharp and independent mind, and a highly developed sense of justice and fair play, as well as great technical and organizational skills. Their desire for excellence will drive them to succeed personally and professionally and, although everything about them reflects this drive for perfection, their easy-going style and unassuming personality make it hard for others to resent them.

After the age of nineteen and for the next thirty years, they will become gradually more aware of the importance of relationships and partnerships. Their creative abilities will be enhanced too during this period, and some of these highly developed people may produce work that is way ahead of its time. Unfortunately, they are not always very good at demystifying their ideas and visions, sometimes taking it for granted that others are on the same wavelength when they clearly are not. Taking the time to simplify and explain their thoughts or methods to others will make all the difference. After the age of forty-nine there is a turning point which brings a strong emphasis on a deeper need for change, transformation and personal power.

Throughout their lives, however, if they can develop their self-confidence and overcome their fear of failure by understanding that no failure is a failure if you learn from it, they may just find that their novel ideas—combined with the iron will so artfully hidden behind their easy-going appeal—will not only help them outshine others, but make them influential agents of advancement and true progress.

On the dark side

Procrastinating, passive, self-doubting

At your best

Determined, socially adept, original

Love Deal with your self-doubts

Just as people born on September 3 excel professionally, they also seek excellence in their personal life. This can make them set such high standards that it alienates them from others or makes them unwilling to compromise. Both approaches can give others the impression that affairs of the heart are not their first priority, which is just not the case. It is therefore important for them to be more open with others and to deal with their self-doubts.

Health Too sedentary

People born on this day like to lose themselves in work and if this work is sedentary or desk bound it can have a negative impact on their weight, mood and health in general. It is therefore important for them to make sure that they get plenty of fresh air and exercise every day, and to take regular breaks from work so that they return to it refreshed and energized. As far as diet is concerned, they should limit their intake of sugar, saturated fat and alcohol. Smoking will also have a damaging effect on them and interfere with their digestive health. Cultivating an interest or hobby outside work could be beneficial as it will help them put their own interests first; in fact, developing their self-esteem by learning to like themselves more will contribute much to their physical and emotional health. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will boost their self-confidence.

Career Born judges

These people are committed to finding practical or workable solutions that can benefit humanity, and may gravitate toward professions where they can make tangible progress such as sport, scientific research, engineering, or the arts. They also make great managers, organizers and executives, so careers in law, writing, education, or politics may appeal.

Destiny To inspire others to make tangible progress

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to take risks every now and again. Once they have the self-confidence to put themselves on the line and make their intentions clear, their destiny is to help and inspire others make tangible progress.
