People born on September 4 are the master planners of the year. They bring process and precision to everything they do, and are forever planning, organizing, designing, and putting systems in place for a more productive future. Others will typically look to them not only for the last word on due process, but also for the first word on planning ahead.

With a natural understanding of how systems, procedures, buildings, establishments and just about everything else work, efficiency is very important to them and they are brilliant at finding short cuts or better ways of doing things. They can delight in exposing, criticizing or tearing down the Achilles’ heel or fatal flaw in a project to make their point. Their knowledge is so great that they should ensure they put it to good use and do not divert their focus to unworthy causes. Unfortunately, the less highly developed and luckily very rare individuals born on this day can make formidable conmen or women.

After the age of eighteen there is an increased need for partnership and relating for these people; their sense of harmony and beauty is likely to be enhanced during this period. It is important during these years that their focus on planning for the future does not close their eyes to the possibility of happiness in the present. After the age of forty-nine there is a significant turning point which will highlight a growing emphasis on emotional and spiritual regeneration, as well as joint finances or corporate business activity.

Throughout their lives, the key to their success and happiness will not necessarily lie in material gain or career advancement, but in developing their spirituality, a goal that may confuse or frighten them. Once they understand, however, that spiritual growth—rather like material progress—is something that needs their concentration, dedication and passion, they will be able to realize their perceptive and inspirational hopes for the future in the most powerful way possible—in the present.

On the dark side

Disrespectful, demanding, fussy

At your best

Responsible, thorough, constructive

Love Serious business

People born on September 4 are often charming, with the ability to captivate others. They take their relationships seriously—a little too seriously at times—and are very committed. Their ideal partner will be someone intelligent and creative like themselves, who can help them loosen up and who is willing to appreciate, without taking for it granted, their willingness to commit.

Health Fussy eaters

There is a tendency for people born on this day to drive themselves into the ground with responsibilities and work. Unless they learn to take time out and pace themselves they could be heading for burnout. It is also important that they don’t become so critical of what they see around them that they earn a reputation for grumpiness or cynicism. As far as diet is concerned, they may be extremely picky eaters with a small appetite, and they would benefit from experimenting more with their diet by eating more foods that are nutritious and wholesome such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and legumes, as well as oily fish to boost their brain function. Good quality sleep and plenty of mild to moderate exercise are also highly recommended to rejuvenate their bodies and minds. A warm bath with lavender essential oil is the ideal way for them to unwind, and wearing the color orange will induce feelings of warmth, security and enjoyment.

Career Born property managers

Being multi-talented, these people can achieve excellence in many careers but they are particularly well suited to the freedom offered by artistic and academic pursuits. Good at combining business with pleasure, they can be excellent diplomats but may also be drawn to careers such as teaching, counseling, sales, commerce, property management, manufacturing, engineering, and the medical profession.

Destiny To realize their progressive and constructive aims

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to value the past. Once they have found a way to balance work and relaxation, their destiny is to realize their constructive and progressive aims to benefit both themselves and others.
