Although people born on September 27 often fail to recognize it, they have the ability to make a lasting and positive impression on all those they meet. This is because they are extremely versatile and sensitive to the feelings of others, and like nothing better than to bring harmony to any situation. Paradoxically, however, underneath their sociable and relatively normal persona they may often be riddled with doubts, insecurities, contradictions, and hidden fears. Learning to develop faith in their abilities, which are considerable, is crucial to their success and happiness in life.

These people are far deeper and complex than anyone, themselves included, realizes. This may be due to the fact that they set very high standards for themselves—failure simply isn’t an option for them—but also because professional success tends to take priority in their lives over fulfillment. As a result they may find themselves mixing with groups of people or working in careers that are wholly unsuitable for them, although few would notice their discomfort. Until they get in touch with their feelings and find a path in life that is fulfilling, nagging feelings of depression and despondency will haunt them.

Before the age of twenty-six people born on this day are likely to be preoccupied with fine-tuning their people skills and carving themselves opportunities for career success. After the age of twenty-seven there is a shift in emphasis when issues concerning emotional change and transformation come to the fore; these are the years when they need to be alert to the way that their choice of career shapes their character.

As long as people born on this day believe that professional or material success is the only option, happiness and fulfillment will be elusive. However, once they understand that their hidden feelings and insecurities are not their enemies but their teachers trying to lead them to a fuller awareness of their potential, there is nothing these determined, driven, multi-talented, and vigorous individuals cannot achieve, if they set their inquisitive and highly creative minds to it.

On the dark side

Conflicted, insecure, frustrated

At your best

Charismatic, ambitious, successful

Love Injection of self-confidence

Although they are charismatic and attractive, when it comes to affairs of the heart people born on September 27 may lack confidence and self-belief. Until they gain self-confidence, their chances of success in relationships will be limited. They are attracted to powerful and determined individuals who know what they want and where they are going, and although they can learn much from them, they need to be careful not to become dependent.

Health Pump iron

It has been proved many times that exercise does not just boost immunity and manage weight, it also boosts confidence; more recent research has shown that lifting weights or muscle-toning exercises also has a positive effect on mood. Therefore, if they aren’t already exercising their muscles, regular toning exercise or weight training—two or three sessions a week maximum—is highly recommended for people born on this day, as long as they don’t take it to extremes. They also need to complement this toning work with plenty of aerobic exercise such as walking or running which can be performed every day. As far as their health goes, they need to take care of their liver, kidneys and reproductive organs, and a healthy, balanced diet rich in nutrients will help them do that. Learning the techniques taught by cognitive therapy and hypnotherapy will help them challenge negative thinking. Yellow is the color of optimism and self-confidence, and meditating on it will encourage them to have more faith in themselves.

Career Born freelancers

These people may be drawn toward politics or social and legal campaigning, or alternatively freelance artistic, technical or design projects. Other possible career choices include management, self-employment, entertainment, education, science, writing, music, and the caring professions.

Destiny To point the way toward progress

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to believe in themselves and their talents. Once they have accepted that to be human is to be complex, their destiny is to point the way toward progress through the most unlikely of approaches.
