“The Day of Sacrifice”
Strengths: Giving, open, accepting.
Weaknesses: Self-absorbed, demanding, static.
Meditation: Many tragedies are enacted in the name of love.
Advice: Learn to stick up for the real you. Don’t respond so readily to the suggestions or wishes of others. Augment your talents and your willpower. Resist the temptations of ego massage.
Health: Too many people born on February 24 have a tendency to relax into an easy life of sensuality and relative inaction. They must, therefore, beware of sedentary disorders affecting the legs, circulatory system and lymphatics. Because of their self-sacrificing nature, and propensity for creating negative expectations, they may eventually arouse resentment or anger in themselves or others. For some February 24 people, love relationships become to be-all and end-all of existence; therefore, those born on this day have to be particularly aware of dependencies as well as sex-and-love addictions. Sensual food enjoyment and gratifying sexual activities are naturally important for their continued happiness, but they would do well to limit their diet, both in richness and quantity, and perhaps structure their emotional life in a more healthy or productive fashion.
Numbers and planets: Those born on the twenty-fourth day of the month are ruled by the number six, and by the planet of Venus. Those ruled by the number six are magnetic in attracting love and admiration, and since Venus is strongly connected with social interaction, it may be a temptation for February 24 people to give themselves over to the easy pursuit of pleasure and become objects of admiration. The combined influence of Venus and Neptune, can lend February 24 people an ultra-romantic and magnetic charm but also weaken their sense of personal and social reality. Often love becomes the dominant theme in the lives of those ruled by the number six.

"Sacrifice is a pivotal theme in the lives of February 24 people, and can manifest in a variety of ways. Those born on this day often sacrifice their own concerns—to a cause, parental wishes, or the desires of a mate or family. Typically they themselves demand a great degree of sacrifice from others, particularly loved ones. The theme may also recur in more abstract or philosophical forms, where sacrifice becomes a kind of acceptance of life as it is, a sacrifice of ego so to speak. In the best cases this is a true unselfishness and desire to work for the common good.
Those February 24 people who choose to sacrifice themselves to a larger purpose or the wishes of a group do so with anything from blissful joy to an austere, even grim sense of duty. In the former case they sincerely believe in what they do and the happiness or well-being of others is their personal reward. In the latter case, though they may act out of firm moral or ethical convictions, they can harbor deep resentment due to the frustrated demands of their ego. Such frustration, building up over a long period of time, one day bursts out and leads these February 24 people to reject the responsibilities placed on them.
Many February 24 people seek to reduce the presence of their ego, perhaps even getting rid of it altogether, in the pursuit of a more pure lifestyle. The danger here is, of course, that they could be in some way deluding themselves; it may not be possible to get rid of one’s ego when it is not yet fully formed! The more highly evolved of February 24 people are aware of this trap and steer clear by strengthening the positive aspects of their personality and judging themselves by objective standards whenever possible. Yet other February 24 people accept everything that fate sends their way, believing that their misfortune, is somehow a confirmation of a higher state.
February 24 people must find a way to work for the common good or perhaps please their parents and society without compromising their own beliefs and desires. More than for most, those born on this day must be very sure of their wishes and unafraid of communicating them. If they have grown overly accepting of compromise and less-than-ideal circumstances, or a self-image that is not up to their talents or abilities, they run the risk of building a set of negative or self-fulfilling prophecies into their outlook which determine their future as well. If they one day wish to again take control of their life, they may find the going rough, as they will be swimming against an undertow of ingrained habits and expectations.
Steady progress, willpower, resolute conduct, determination, guts—these are qualities which February 24 people must have in place before they begin to make any major sacrifices. Also sharing love from a position of strength rather than weakness proves far more satisfying in the long run.”
