September 12 Birthday Personality: The Motivator

The Motivator

Your greatest challenge is…

avoiding information overload

The way forward is…

to understand that occasionally you need to take time out to be alone. Private time recharges your batteries and gives a sense of the bigger picture.

You’re drawn to people born on…

November 22 to December 21

If you can make sure you take practical details into consideration as well as passion, this relationship has great potential.

Luck maker

Don’t take on too much

If you are drowning in commitments you are likely to feel drained and confused, and this will block your luck-making potential. Only take on what you know you can achieve.

People born on September 12 have bags of charisma, energy and strong ideals. They are also blessed with a strong desire to share their knowledge with the less fortunate and to encourage others to be the best that they can be. Excellent motivators, these are the people others tend to look up to and admire.

Driven by a desire to motivate, serve and educate others, they can fight hard and long for a cause they believe in. They rarely lack courage and are unfailingly responsive to the needs of friends, family and those less fortunate than themselves. Others tend to look to them for encouragement and support, and if their leadership skills are not advanced they will align themselves with someone powerful. At some point in their lives, however, they need to determine whether their desire to encourage and boost others is rooted in a deep-seated need to control rather than inspire. If it is the former, they run the risk of becoming a dictator or being ruled by one; but if it is the latter, their potential to positively shape the thoughts and behavior of others is extraordinary.

Until the age of forty they may find that their energies are directed toward chasing popularity; as a result they may overload themselves with work and commitments. During these years they will learn a lot about their motivations through close relationships with others. After the age of forty, however, there is a powerful turning point that will highlight the importance for them of evaluating what their unique contribution to the world will be. These are the years when they are likely to be more discerning.

Whatever age they are, however, they should realize that listening to their inner voice and picking and choosing to whom and what they want to devote their considerable talents and energies is the secret of their success. Time to reflect gives them the ability to make a real and positive difference, not just to the lives of others, but to the world around them.

On the dark side

Unreliable, controlling, over-eager

At your best

Encouraging, optimistic, fearless

Love Easily bored

There is a tendency for people born on September 12 to be a little detached emotionally, but with the right partner they can learn to open up and share their private world. They are friendly and intelligent, and their witty personality ensures they are never short of admirers. They can, however, easily get bored if others don’t offer them enough mental stimulation.

Health Study

People born on this day have a lively and sharp mind, and it is very important for their psychological well-being that they take courses of study where they can develop new skills or meet other people who are equally intelligent. As far as diet and lifestyle are concerned, they need to make sure they avoid or cut down on alcohol and smoking, as they may have an increased risk of heart disease. Digestive upsets are also an issue, so spicy, fatty and creamy foods should be treated with caution. Exercise is unlikely to be on the menu for them, so they need to make an extra special effort to incorporate at least 30 minutes of activity into their day. Gardening is a great form of exercise for them, as are walking, swimming and cycling. Lavender essential oil is an uplifting mood-boosting smell for them, and wearing the color yellow will help them feel more calm and in control during times of stress.

Career Born trainers

All careers involving education, teaching or training are well suited to these people, but they may also be drawn to careers in research, science and psychology. Their talent with words may lead them to the media and writing, as well as law and publishing. They also make excellent bankers and accountants, and their humanitarian side may draw them toward social work and politics. If they choose to develop their creativity, they may become designers, singers or musicians.

Destiny To motivate and inspire others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to say “no” when they are feeling crowded or overloaded. Once they have learned to balance private time with responsibilities to others, their destiny is simple: to motivate and inspire others by their words or by their example.

Power Thought

“I simply enjoy helping others and being me”
