| APRIL FOOLS DAY/ APRIL FIRST
The Day of Dignity
THOSE BORN ON APRIL 1 are usually straightforward, self-disciplined, thoughtful and hard working people. Although they maybe masters of their craft, they rarely if ever flaunt their talents. Even as children they manifest a serious, consciencious attitude toward daily life, shouldering many responsibilities that other children would fin a burden. As they grow, they develop into reliable figures who friends and family can depend on year in and year out.
Although the star quality of an April 1 person is underniable, they donot seek the limelight early in life. It is not being the center of attention which is important to them, but being at the center of what is happening. All they really want is to get on with their work, Indeed, their fixation on the work is pronounced and they are likely to be certified workaholics at various times in their lives. Many born on this day impress others as being shy, even withdrawn. In fact, they are not overly sociable people, unless sociability is required by their profession.
The subleties of technique can become a mana for an April 1 person. They are interested in mastering every aspect of what they do; to ask others for help would only be an embarrassment for them. Super capable, they usually learn their craft on their own, outside of school. Attending classes can make them itchy; many born on this day can't wait to leve school in order to begin their self educative process. Able to learn from experience and observe the methods of those they admire, they soon develop a style which is uniquely their own.
Though April 1 people are capable of originality, their work is rarely highly daring or unusual but more likely to be conservative and measured. Often those born on this day have a passion for history, for studyin how things were done before and why they did nor did not succeed. It is not their own success that concern them, rather the success of their projects and endeavors.
The drive is very strong on April 1 people to bring mattes of concern to a satisfactory conclusion. Thus they will finish a project no matter how much energy is required or how great the sacrifice. April 1 people donot depend on others to provide pleasure for them, and do not surround themselves with friends or admirers. Others sometimes feel sorry for April 1 people, thinking them solitary, isolated or lonely, but in fact those born on this day are qquite happy living on their own and functioning autonomously. April 1 may have a problem of demanding too much from themselves -- thus they must avoid taking on too many projects at one time. The only recreation attractive to these disciplined individuals is often itself a hobby, which they pursue wuth such zeal that others may mistake it for work.
