Show your eagerness

Lucky people understand that the more alive and energetic you are, the more people are likely to want to help you. Helping you makes them feel alive and energetic too.

People born on September 17 are strong, tough and determined individuals with a clear sense of right and wrong. They possess a heroic spirit, stamina, courage, and no fear of hard work. In fact they can easily take on tasks that make others cringe and perform them with little effort.

Control is important for people born on this day, and in anything they do their steady discipline and commitment to the smallest detail shine through. They can be imaginative but their preference is to organize their approach and their thinking logically; the facts, justice, fair play, tradition, and maintaining the status quo matter greatly to them. There is a fun side to them but it takes a lot to reveal it spontaneously; the downside of this is that they can come across as serious and heavy, but the upside is that when they do open up, others can be assured of their absolute sincerity.

Until the age of thirty-five there are opportunities for them to develop the more creative side of their personality, forging relationships with others both professionally and socially. They should take advantage of these opportunities to be less self-contained and more expressive, as they offer tremendous potential for happiness. After the age of thirty-six there is a turning point which stimulates them to seek a deeper meaning to their life and emphasizes the power of personal transformation.

Whatever age they are, they often do well financially in life, and enjoying a good standard of living is one of their first priorities. They will probably achieve their material goals, but to reach their full potential they should ensure they don’t neglect their spiritual and emotional life; money alone will not completely satisfy them. Above all they are determined people, so when they do realize the true value of things money can’t buy, their steady and resilient star won’t just light their own path. It will inspire others to take a more disciplined, responsible, compassionate, and honest approach to work and to life.

On the dark side

Controlling, workaholic, heavy

At your best

Persistent, fair, resilient

Love Passionate but reserved

People born on September 17 are passionate but reserved individuals, and it will take a while for them to reveal their thoughts and feelings. They need a loving relationship built on trust and understanding before they feel they can open up. They can also be impatient and judgmental of others at times, and need to show themselves and others more patience and understanding.

Health Sore eyes

People born on this day can have workaholic tendencies and may be prone to stress, headaches, backache, and sore eyes, especially if they spend long hours at a desk or computer. They may also lead quite sedentary lives, making weight gain likely, so it is important for them not only to be more active but to make sure they cut down on the amount of saturated fat, sugary and salty food, animal products, and alcohol they eat and drink. If they suffer from concentration problems they would also benefit enormously from deep-breathing exercises as they tend to breathe quite shallowly, and this can deprive their brains of oxygen. Regular massage suits their sensual nature, and wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to focus on higher things.

Career Born lawyers

These people have a strong sense of fair play and are well suited to careers in law, accountancy and law enforcement. They can also excel in science, research, writing, economics, education, or in the news and media world. Computers and engineering may also appeal, as might the healing professions.

Destiny To bring about concrete progress to inspire and benefit others

The life path of people born on this day is to open up emotionally and spiritually. Once they are able to tap into their latent creativity, their destiny is to bring about concrete progress which inspires and benefits others.
