Luck maker

Be prepared to take risks

If you have weighed up the pros and cons, taking a calculated risk is not reckless but essential to increase your chances of luck.

There is something quite feline about people born on September 18; like a cat, they can be devoted and available one moment, independent and elusive the next. Although they can be sociable and are often extremely attractive individuals, few will get to know them very well; even getting to close to them is no guarantee that they will commit in any way.

So strong is their need for absolute freedom that these people will often change their minds or hearts at the last moment, leaving those around them feeling confused. Although this unpredictability adds to the attractive air of mystery they create around themselves, part of the reason they tend to vanish or isolate themselves from time to time is that they tend to have a low stress threshold, feeling that the best way for them to deal with conflict is to withdraw and reflect in private. Problems, however, arise when the need to withdraw and regroup becomes a need to hide or escape; they need to learn that conflict, although unpleasant, is essential for their psychological growth.

Until the age of thirty-four they will be presented with many opportunities to develop their friendly and sociable side, and they should take advantage of these, because left to their own devices they run the risk of being over-serious in their approach to life. After the age of thirty-five there is a turning point that brings an emphasis on their deep emotional need for change, intensity and personal power. During these years their powers of concentration are likely to be exceptional, and when they find a cause that is worthy of them their absolute devotion to it will attract incredible success and fulfillment their way.

Throughout their lives, however, as long as they make sure that they don’t become so devoted or absorbed in their work or thoughts that they lose a sense of direction or their own identity, these highly advanced and unusual individuals will find their own unique way to contribute new knowledge and insight to the world.

On the dark side

Unpredictable, aloof, negative

At your best

Disciplined, profound, devoted

Love Your heart on the line

People born on September 18 are highly sensitive and, when they are hurt, their natural reaction is to seek solace in books, ideas or their work. This stifles their emotional growth and they need to put their creative energy into reaching out and connecting with others instead. Sure, they may get hurt, but until they can take that risk and put their hearts on the line they will feel lonely and misunderstood.

Health Perspective is everything

People born on this day are prone to negativity and this can affect both their physical and emotional health. They may, for example, be prone to fatigue, headaches or sudden mood changes. They need to understand that although people and situations do not change, what can change is their outlook. Digestive disorders and minor ailments could also be a problem and, instead of soldiering on regardless, it is important for them to seek medical advice. As far as diet is concerned, they need to learn to recognize when they are hungry for food and when they are hungry for attention, affection or stimulation. Regular moderate to mild exercise such as brisk walking is recommended, as are relaxing therapies such as aromatherapy, yoga and acupuncture. Wearing the color yellow will encourage them to believe more in themselves, and wearing red will help them to feel more assertive.

Career Born film-makers

People born on this day have a natural affinity for writing, music and art, and they may be spectacular film-makers. They may also be attracted to scientific careers or to careers that benefit humanity as a whole. Other work choices may include research, statistics, accountancy, business, management, administration, law, law enforcement, psychology, publishing, and medicine.

Destiny To contribute knowledge that benefits humanity

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to deal with conflict in a positive way. Once they have learned to face rather than run away from challenges, their destiny is to contribute knowledge that benefits or inspires humanity.
