From The Everything Birthday Personology Book

April 24th

You’re on a continual quest for peace and self-improvement.  There is no room in your life for any type of discord, especially spiritual.  you believe that there’s a pattern to things, an order, and once you understand that, harmony develops naturally.  This outlook, combined with the individualistic, perfectionist birth number of 1, motivates you to try to constantly refine your personal abilities and release old, outmoded behaviors.

You’re very talented and have financial aptitude.  Careers that focus on money (banking, financial advisor, etc.) suit you well.  The only problem is that you suffer from underlying indecisiveness that comes from lingering teenage angst.  By the age of about thirty-five this should dwindle, and you’ll feel comfortable enough in your skin to move forward boldly.

Lovers need to be reminded to be gentle.  You love very easily and deeply, often collapsing into a relationship and getting lost there.  Nonetheless, with a well-balanced partner you are very inventive and diligent about relationship maintenance.

Gift idea: a calculator or nice checkbook cover.

Living in Harmony with the Earth

You’ve been hoping for a major career break for the past several years. Finally, it seems, New Year’s Day of 2009 just might bring the long-sought appearance of the good fortune you’ve been awaiting. At midnight on January 1, the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto will all be in Capricorn, an Earth Sign like Taurus. Saturn will be in Virgo, another Earth Sign – all connecting beautifully with your sign. This may bring career success and the resulting monetary gain, but it might also imply that this will be the year when the grassroots environmental movement actually attracts a lot of followers and begins to make serious progress, and you could be in the thick of it all.

Taurus’s Sun Profile

Taurus, the second Sign of the Zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike the Arian’s love of the game, Taureans love the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this Sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taureans adore comfort and like being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises, whether it’s the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurean-born. Continue reading

From The Book of Destiny

The life purpose of those on the Way of Amplification is to choose a path and live it large – to live out loud.  To do this, they must learn to think for the long term and see the big picture, rather than wasting their energy flitting from one project, interest, or person to another.  Individuals on the Way of Amplification are asked to create a life that is greater than who they think themselves to be or even the sum of their parts.  These individuals come into the world as Seekers and thus naturally exhibit a desire to learn about larger or more universal concepts and issues.  On this karmic path, they will eventually learn to live according to such higher, broader, more expansive views.

From "You Are Your Birthday" by Ellin Dodge

…cause I like crap like this…

Amazon.com: You Are Your Birthday
ISBN: 0595141439
ISBN-13: 9780595141432

 

 

Concentrate on one thing at a time and cool your impatience.  Your life is intended to be lived in the fast lane – one revolution of the wheels at a time.  Youth offers a chance to rub elbows with independent, inventive, ambitious people, and you learn to aim for creative, artistic and practical goals.  You are dramatic and tend to enlarge your problems.  Your mother is a strong influence and you base your self-esteem on her opinions or subtle reactions.  You’re ego is sound, and only a trace of the “poor me” attitude of childhood surfaces midlife to trigger depression.

Taking orders from anyone but your spouse sets your dander up.  You are a leader who strives  for constant improvements in financial and domestic situations.  Home is your haven, and you feel protective about your family, community, and co-workers.  You are the ruler of your roost and expect to be treated with adoration and concern.  The paternal-maternal instinct is prominent in all your dealings, and you are a just guardian.

A hardworking, driving person influenced your early years and is a mentor in mid-life.  You are too concerned about the opinions of outsiders and are better off when you trust yourself.  A female places responsibility on your shoulders and curbs your freedom mid-life.  Your strong sense of obligation makes it difficult to keep up the pace you set earlier.  However, you are intended to give loving service and accept the changes that are inevitable.

In late years you want to expand your horizons.  You are given the chance to counsel others and leave a lasting mark.

Horoscope (cause I’m still too chicken to write a real entry)

Saturday, June 30, 2007
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
This Full Moon stresses your plans for the future. Although you may already know what you want to do, insecurities kick in and cause you to doubt yourself — even if you are aware of the obstacles in your way. This isn’t necessarily about real blockages; it’s more about what you need to do to overcome your self-doubt. There is no need for immediate change. But keep an open mind, even while you stick to your current plan.
