(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.
"The greatest gift that one can give to another is to reveal oneself"

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.

TWICE Has Fun Answering Fans’ Questions About Their Habits, Transformations, And More
TWICE satisfied the curiosity of their fans in a new video!
On July 12, the girl group participated in 1theK’s “Ask in A Box” series and answered questions from fans all around the world.
Mina began the video by answering a fan’s question about how she’s been seen going out a lot. The TWICE member said that there are many things on sale and that she likes shopping. She goes out for 30 minutes to an hour, and ends her shopping trip with watermelon juice.
Chaeyoung chose Nayeon as the member who recently made her laugh the most before talking about sharing a room with her on their overseas promotions. She explained, “We have to order room service in Japanese and our Japanese isn’t that good yet. We’re working hard on it. I have a video, but she was laughing and embarrassed while trying to speak Japanese, and it was really funny.”
She also credited her age, sexy dancing, and influence from their concepts for her transformation from a child to an adult.
Dahyun and the other members talked about how Dahyun seemed grown-up when she showed some skin for their album photos. Nayeon explained that Dahyun usually doesn’t wear clothes that show skin, but did so for their comeback.
Tzuyu revealed she wants to live as Nayeon for a day. “I’m really curious about her thoughts,” she said and made the others burst into laughter.
Since Sana has coined some popular phrases such as “Oh hyo oh hyo” and “Kekeke,” a fan asked her to create a new one. She told fans that she can’t just come up with one on the spot and asked them to keep an eye out during promotions for her next popular phrase.
Jihyo was tasked with matching an Avenger with each TWICE member. She said Tzuyu is Hulk, Mina is Dr. Strange, Chaeyoung is Spider Man, Dahyun is Rocket Raccoon, Sana is Wanda, Jeongyeon is Hawkeye, Momo is Black Widow, Nayeon is Iron Man, and that she is Thor.
Nayeon talked about sleeping habits. She wasn’t aware of hers, but the members told her that she’s always eating or tasting something in her sleep. Momo added that many of the members, including herself, sleep with their eyes open.
While Nayeon was responding to a question about how she is the member who acts the most spontaneously, Dahyun brought up Nayeon’s glasses. She asked Nayeon why she always leaves her glasses in the refrigerator and revealed that she takes them out and puts them on the top of the refrigerator. Nayeon was really shocked to hear this and asked multiple times if this was true.
Jeongyeon told the members about a scary nightmare involving a really tall grim reaper and chose Nayeon as the member who would survive on a deserted island because she’s “persistent.”
Nayeon joked, “Tell the truth. I thought you didn’t like me all this time, but you really like me, don’t you?” She added, “She likes me a lot so she keeps wanting to tease me and denies that she likes me,” and praised Jeongyeon on how she’s good at playing hard to get.
