(March 24th) The Day of Beguiling Simplicity
Strengths: Positive, Open, Affectionate
Weaknesses: Imprecise, Depressive, Unrealistic
March 24 people are spontaneous and direct, and generally prefer to keep life as simple as they can. When confronted with problems, whether in their work or personal life, they tend to make broad choices and avoid entanglements if possible. Yet fate seems to serve up complexity again and again for them -- whether in the form of difficult individuals or challenges which they must surmount. Finding the simplest manner with which to deal with such complexity can thus become a most pressing task.
There is an undeniably childlike air about March 24 people -- their natural demeanour and openness is usually apparent at first meeting. Because of their attitude of wonder and expectation, however, they react worse than most to disappointment and rejection, and in extreme cases severe depression can overcome them. Indeed, for many born on this day a tinge of sadness is a lifelong companion.
March 24 people usually display a quiet demeanour. Rarely do they enjoy speech for its own sake. Instead they prefer to express themselves physically, whether in love, hobbies or athletic endeavours. They can make highly satisfying partners, both as mates and co-workers. In addition, those born on this day seldom arouse antagonism in the workplace and are usually highly prized for their ability to unassumingly produce steady results.
Modesty is a fine attribute of many March 24 people. Those born on this day can in fact be retiring, sometimes shy, yet it would be a great mistake for others to assume that they are passive or an easy touch. For example, in the face of opposition or outright attack, they show great fortitude and rarely back down, and in their home life they generally insist that things be done their way, harmoniously if possible. Where March 24 people are more vulnerable is when subtle pressures or negativity are exerted on them over a long period of time -- these may ultimately wear them down and insidiously undermine their hopeful and positive outlook.
Because of their many desirable qualities -- affection, loyalty, spontaneity -- it may be difficult for friends and family to understand why March 24 people so often fall into problematical situations. Part of the reason may be that the optimistic expectations and openness of those born on this day prevent them from taking a more realistic approach. Thus March 24 people must learn to be more methodical and a bit less fanciful in confronting and solving daily problems, perhaps tempering their childlike directness with a healthy dose of watchfulness, caution and care.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 24th of the month are ruled by the number 6 (2+4=6), and by the planet Venus. Those ruled by Venus and by the number 6 value harmony above all things, and find social interaction stimulating and rewarding. They enjoy romance, but the kind of love they crave is generally more affectionate in nature than passionate. However, because Mars rules Aries, March 24 people come under a Venus-Mars connection that grants sexual attractiveness and can product a rather stormy love life.
As if to emphasize this last point, the 6th card of the Major Arcana is The Lovers, symbolising the love that unites all of humanity through integration of masculine and feminine polarities. On the good side this card indicates affections and desires on a high moral, aesthetic and physical plane; on the bad side, unfulfilled desires, sentimentally and indecisiveness.
March 24 people are highly sensitive. Consequently their health is directly related to their mental-emotional state and to that of those around them. Above all, they should strive to achieve harmony in their relationship and living situation. Emotional imbalances may cause sickness, manifesting in a bewildering variety of symptoms -- some acute, some chronic. Yet even quite serious systemic disorders can clear up if the cause of the emotional imbalance is discovered and dealt with. Those born on March 24 do well with a balanced diet and should avoid powerful stimulants like coffee, alcohol and sugar when possible, although chocolate may be valuable for its possible anti-depressant properties. Dinners composed of rice or pasta and cooked vegetables, lightly spiced, may be best for keeping on an even keel. A daily or tri-weekly regimen of moderate physical exercise is highly recommended.
Keep your life balanced and beware of attracting trouble. Handle small matters with care and patience. There are in fact details that merit your concern.

Sana (December 29th, Capricorn, The Priestess)
Element/Quality: Earth/ Cardinal
Ruler/Symbol: Saturn/ The Goat
Mode/Motto: Sensation/ "I Master"
Image/Season: Ruler (Capricorn I)/ Early Winter
Capricorn Stones & Uses:
Diamond (raises self-confidence, enhances ambition)
Falcon's Eye (augments visionary power, sparks intuition)
White Sapphire (combines discipline with friendliness)
Capricorn Colours: All shades of Brown, Orange
Capricorn Body Areas: Teeth, Skeletal system, Knees
Capricorn Keys: C minor, B major
Capricorn Plants: Hemlock, Black poppy, Burdock root
(Capricorn I) Trees: December 23 - January 20 (Birch)

(December 29th) The Day of Preeminence
Strengths: Interesting, Communicative, Commanding
Weaknesses: Self-Unaware, Careless, Undiplomatic
Those born on December 29 are often destined to play a leading role in the life around them. Although they may not desire to be a boss, somehow they are chosen by fate to occupy positions of responsibility. Those born on this day who are suited for leadership roles can function in an executive post year after year in a steady fashion. Those who are not may one day find the apple cart upset and themselves unceremoniously toppled.
Again, it should be emphasized that December 29 people are not in general overly ambitious, but have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. The question which only they can answer is whether they wish to accept the opportunities offered them. In order to make such choices they will have to devote time to understanding themselves better and making a realistic assessment of their true talents and abilities.
Some born on this day may find themselves more comfortable playing a supporting role in life, yet close to a source of power. Such December 29 people have an ability to fit into work and social activities and do the politically correct thing. It is crucial that they cultivate tact and diplomacy, however, for such qualities do not come naturally to many born on this day. Furthermore, December 29 people must beware of attracting the suspicion of others concerning supposed misdeeds which they in fact have never committed. Their vulnerability in this area may derive from their own oversight or even arrogance. Those born on this day must be sure of their motives before acting, and not allow expediency to direct their course.
December 29 people have a low-key sense of humour which is not always noticed or appreciated. They may give the impression of being overly serious, but in fact are at heart ironic. When those born on this day choose to exercise their talent for communication, they can hold audiences spellbound, whether it be family, friends or a wider group of listeners. Perhaps it is their physical presence or the sonority of their voice that keeps attention riveted on them. Many born on this day have a subdued but potent aggressiveness which makes others take notice out of a mixture of fear and fascination.
The greatest challenge for December 29 people is quite simply to live up to their position of preeminence in their family, social circle or field of endeavour. They must, however, avoid locking themselves into a fixed notion of how they may function in such a role, and never exclude the possibility that they may one day wish to relinquish their responsibility (hopefully free of rancor or guilt).
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 29th of the month are rule by the number 2 (2+9=11, 1+1=2), and by the Moon. Those ruled by the number 2 often make good co-workers and partners, rather than leaders, so December 29 people may experience a measure of stress when occupying positions of authority. Though the Moon's influence strengthens their sense of cooperation and team play, it may also act as a brake on individual initiative and action. The secondary number 11 (2+9=11) lends a feeling for physical plane as well as a possible interest in double occurrences and replicate phenomena. A strong connection between the Moon and Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) can indicate profundity, but also bluntness and sometimes self-pity.
The 2nd card of the Major Arcana is The Priestess, shown seated on her throne, calm and impenetrable. She is a spiritual woman who reveals hidden forces and secrets, empowering those of us who heed her with that knowledge. Favourable qualities of this card are silence, intuition, reserve and discretion; negative traits are secretiveness, mistrust and inertia.
Those born on December 29 may be prone to nursing private resentments or internalised failures. Consequently they must beware of turning to alcohol or any other highly addictive drugs for solace. Those born on this day may be prone to debilitating, chronic ailments affecting their internal organs and circulatory or skeletal systems. At the first indication of such difficulties they should seek treatment with a trusted and competent physician, homeopath, chiropractor or physiotherapist. As far as diet is concerned, December 29 people should in general use food to make them feel good and stimulate their will to win. Learning to cook a wide variety of tasty dishes can do wonders for their sense of well-being. Where exercise is concerned, vigorous athletic workouts once or twice a week are strongly recommended.
Have the courage to lead but also to compromise and admit your mistakes. Just walk away and begin over when necessary. Fulfill the opportunities you have been given by living up to your potential.

Twice members transform into princesses
Twice appeared on the cover of Marie Claire fashion magazine’s August issue looking like Disney princesses.
The K-pop group recently released the song “Dance the Night Away.”
In the pictures released, each of the nine singers of Twice put on white laced dresses and pastel chiffon outfits.
Jihyo, Momo and Sana donned dresses with flower patterns. Dahyun and Chaeyoung flashed big smiles for the camera.
In an interview that accompanied the photo spread, Sana said she had participated in writing the lyrics for the song with Momo and Mina.
Jihyo shared how she had gotten a tan while shooting the music video for the track. Tzuyu and Nayeon said dance moves for the new song are especially fun because they include plenty of leg movements.
