How does your story end?

If something is troubling you, imagine you are writing a film script of your life. Everyone loves a happy ending, so write yours, then make it happen in your life.

People born on September 11 think independently and clearly, and they will often shock or surprise others with their unconventional views. As well as being fiercely opinionated, they are also incredibly compassionate and their urge to help others may be so strong that it may take a radical form: either by passionately defending traditional views or by defiantly rebelling against them.

Whatever position they choose to defend, they will defend it passionately or take risks to prove their conviction. They can sometimes come across as extremely serious or critical, but behind this outward show of boldness and courage there is also a part of them that longs for stability or an authority figure to guide them. There may often be a silent battle or conflict going on within themselves that manifests itself in sudden mood swings of intense highs followed by intense lows.

Between the ages of eleven and forty-one there is an emphasis on relationships, and opportunities will be presented to explore their creativity. It is important that they take advantage of these because successful relationships will give them the sense of perspective they occasionally lack, and developing literary, artistic or creative interests will help them connect with their intuition, the key to their psychological growth. After the age of forty-two there is a turning point when they may undergo some kind of personal transformation, making them more self-reliant and in control.

If they can listen to their intuition rather than their conviction, become more tolerant and, most important of all, find a cause that is worthy of them, they will find that they no longer want to surprise or shock others with radical words and deeds. They want to realize their full potential and, by so doing, encourage others to do the same. In this way these determined and imaginative individuals will be making their own extraordinary mark on the world and fulfilling their destiny as the progressive revolutionaries or traditionalists of their age.

On the dark side

Judgmental, controlling, inflexible

At your best

Idealistic, imaginative, passionate

Love Intelligent and perceptive

People born on September 11 have a tendency to live vicariously through their partners, but it is important for them to make sure that their own great deeds get the recognition they deserve. Intelligent and perceptive, they make loyal and passionate partners but can at times be inconsistent and careless when it comes to the feelings of others.

Health Put good habits into place

People born on this day need to make sure they understand the connection between healthy eating and exercise habits, and good health and feelings of well-being. This will help them pay more attention to their diet and lifestyle, which can get neglected for the demands of work or of others. They are particularly prone to food allergies and digestive upsets, and would benefit greatly by keeping a food diary to track down the culprits. Because their approach to life is often cerebral they can also become very sedentary and would benefit greatly from regular exercise, preferably in the fresh air so that they get all the mood-boosting benefits of fresh air and sunlight. It will be hard for them to stay on track with a healthy eating and exercise program, but they constantly need to remind themselves why it is important. They would also benefit from meditating and listening to their dreams, encouraging them to connect with their inner guidance or intuition. Wearing the color green stimulates feelings of balance and will help them inspire harmony in themselves and others.

Career Born campaigners

These people will often gravitate toward politics, social reform or law, but they may also choose to exert their influence through artistic means, as artists or writers. Other career choices that might appeal include administration, finance, statistics, economics, science, teaching, and therapy.

Destiny To formulate practical strategies for improvement

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more tolerant. Once they are able to take everything just a little less seriously, their destiny is to formulate clear-sighted and practical strategies for progressive change or improvement.
