(May 28th) The Day of The Innovative Trailblazer
Strengths: Unique, Individual, Creative
Weaknesses: Egotistical, Overreaching, Impatient
May 28 people are happiest when starting new projects, implementing their often singular ideas and feeling free in general to bring their thoughts to bear on the world around them. Their work is original and elegant in its simplicity. Because of their straightforward, hard-hitting style and highly individual viewpoints, they usually succeed when they find their meter. Until that time they may flounder, moving from one job or social group to another.
Those born on this day are not just idea-oriented individuals but also doers. Individual freedom of action is their lodestone. Unfortunately, they sometimes get carried away and forget the rules that bind us all in society. Should they overreach themselves, they may suffer a blow which makes it difficult for them to get back on their feet again. If they have determination, they will continue undaunted; if not they may drop by the wayside.
May 28 success stories are of the self-made variety. Rarely will those born on this day reach the heights through advantage or nepotism, but are more likely to come out of nowhere with unusual talents and take the field by storm. Less highly evolved individuals born on May 28 can suffer endless frustration being recognised, finding it particularly difficult to get others to listen to their improbable schemes. They should adjust to whatever system they work in and bide their time until they are called upon to innovate, rather than beating their head against the wall and arousing antagonism.
May 28 people are seldom the best teachers and may have difficulties explaining what steps they followed in concretising their unusual ideas. Ultimately they are action people who are too busy doing to stop and think about their personal, often unique, thought process. Due to excessive ego drives, they can get out of touch with themselves or those around them. Thus, May 28 people need to give more thought to their motivations and those of others.
Those born on this day will sometimes have trouble finishing projects, perhaps because they start so many and find the opening phase of greatest interest. They not only value innovation but in a deep sense need to be constantly rejuvenated by new stimuli. Perhaps they fear that by repeating themselves or staying with one project too long, they will lose their source of inspiration and begin to act in a mechanical fashion; but May 28 people must nonetheless learn to maintain and persevere. In a sense, what they create is what they have to live up to, and thus they present themselves with their greatest challenge.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 28th of the month are ruled by the number 1 (2+8=10, 1+0=1), and by the Sun. Those ruled by the number 1 are typically individual, of a definite viewpoint and eager to rise to the top. As May 28 people are born close to the Cusp of Energy (May 19 - 24) and influenced by Mercury (ruler of Gemini), they can overwhelm others with their facile minds and tremendous energy. The Sun symbolises strong creative energy and fire, which should be kept flowing steadily rather than allowed to sporadically flare out of control.
The 1st card of the Major Arcana is The Magician, who symbolises intellect, communication, information, as well as magic. Over his head is an infinity symbol, which in some Tarot decks takes the form of a hat, in others a halo. Many interpretations may be drawn, one of which is that the Magician recognises the cyclical and unending nature of life and is empowered by this understanding. The positive traits suggested by this first card include diplomatic skill and shrewdness but, negatively, lack of scruples and opportunism.
Those born on May 28 may be accident-prone, since they are so often trying something new or developing new talents. Usually their outlook on life is positive, unless they meet with successive obstacles or go unappreciated, in which case they may very well go into an emotional nosedive. If those born on this day can give structure to their lives and direct their energies, they will remain in good psychological health. The love and affection of a few close friends and family is more than enough for May 28 people; with such support they can be a bit less vulnerable to the inevitable hard knocks of life. A widely varied diet, with interesting and exotic highlights, is recommended for May 28 people, since they bore easily. Those born on this day should not get carried away with overly rigorous or competitive sports unless they are serious athletes; moderate exercise is recommended.
Get your moral priorities straight. Don't be so easily discouraged. Tend to the maintenance of one thing before moving on to another. Find your area of expertise and keep innovating within it. Try not to be so secretive about your inner feelings; loosen up a bit.

Capricorn Colours: All shades of Brown, Orange
Capricorn Body Areas: Teeth, Skeletal system, Knees

(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.
