In The Secret Language of Dogs, Kessler explains the importance of learning how to listen to your pet by learning to read the behavioral and energetic traits of your dog.
Based on her years of experience with dogs and their owners in southern California, Kessler explains how energy flows between pets and their owners and what the implications of that energy flow are for both parties. She is best known for her roles as William Katta€™s girlfriend, Pam Davidson, alongside Robert Culp, on the television series The Greatest American Hero, and as James Brolina€™s girlfriend, Christine Francis, in the 80a€™s TV drama Hotel.
Being cool is not always the coolest thing to bea€”recognize the value of being vulnerable and emotionally open.
Since those born on this day are attuned to the rhythms of the world around them, they are able to survive social change, sometimes going with the flow, sometimes removing themselves. Learning to listen and not just plunge ahead with our own best interests at heart will be a difficult task during the Week of Freedom. Bright, perky and alert, but also a tad abrasive, these people are high-speed players who get impatient with other peoplea€™s slower responses.
Family life can have a grounding influence on their mercurial energies; likewise, clever mates and friends will put their quick wits and talents to constructive uses, often by introducing them to interesting activities, jobs and businesses requiring close attention and maintenance. Those involved in relationships with them, whether family, friends or lovers, wona€™t need to do much guessing as to their state of mind. Considering their emotional volatility and changeability, they are surprisingly loyal partners.
Protective, they are capable of putting their prodigious energies to use in rescuing others from trouble. December 4 people can display touches of egomaniacal and sociopathic tendencies, but fortunately such urges rarely come to dominate their personality.
The temptation to secure absolute power in their sphere (whether as humble as their own home or as expansive as a nation) is very great for them and they may in fact need to be checked or moderated for their own sake. The sooner December 4 people rein in the sometimes disruptive, often theatrical side of their nature the better. The shock factor here may run high here and so we must be careful not to insult or alienate anyone with our more unconventional speak or behavior. We may also find that our appreciation of outa€“ofa€“thea€“way experiences and dark humor will manifest. This is the week to explore the little known byways of outa€“ofa€“thea€“way endeavors and to take the road less traveled. These people need to realize that by taking the path of least resistance they will arouse the least opposition. The most successful are those who can cash in on their own wacky way of seeing and doing things. These people are often clevera€”good with their hands, quick with their minds, technically proficient in their principal pursuit. In general, they will save themselves and others a great deal of agony by seeking out people who will appreciate their uniqueness and avoiding the effort to impress or be accepted by those who will not. Once a bond of trust is formed, however, and particularly if that process has been long and difficult, they may become emotionally fixated and clinging. Those born during the Week of the Originator have an intensely physical side that cries out for satisfaction.
Dog trainer, healer, and counselor, Jocelyn Kessler, asserts that while your dog does not speak English, he or she is communicating with you all of the time. Her stories show how we often inflict our own emotional issues onto our pets, and how negative energy can result in both behavior and physical difficulties.
Their friends and family will find that they are charming and agreeable only to a point, however. They have clear ideas on a wide variety of subjects, and these ideas are usually part of a larger, more universal code. Unfortunately, their emotional side may be a bit repressed or, if damaged in childhood, severely blocked.
Learning to be less fearful in general is important for them, no matter how forceful they may seem on the outside.
Because Neptune is the watery planet ruling visions, dreams and psychic phenomena, losing touch with reality poses a danger for May 25 people, particularly as far as the feelings of others are concerned. The card may be interpreted to mean that no matter how narrow or precarious the correct path, one must continue on.
In addition, we will have to tone down some of our outspokenness if we are to be welcomed socially into the groups around us.
Often technically gifted, they can get annoyed when others are less skillful in performing a certain task. They are constantly dreaming up new plans and schemes, perhaps at the expense of pressing matters that need attention (such as paying bills). A relatively rootless among them will often blossom when put to work in a structured position involving a lot of responsibility.
They are both emotionally volatile and not at all shy about verbalizing any discontent they may have.

They do tire of routine quickly, though, and may from time to time find it necessary to change the structures of their most intimate relationships to keep from being bored. Unfortunately, they sometimes wind up subjecting rescuees to their own brand of tyranny, in a benighted effort to make things turn out right.
In fact, they rarely hesitate to turn on their considerable charm when they want to get their way. She played Kate, the romantic interest of the character Mike Seaver, portrayed by Kirk Cameron. Normally their ideals and beliefs remain uncorrupted and they often put themselves in service of some higher human, political or artistic cause. They have a rare ability to size up a person or argument quickly and accurately, without relying on preconceived ideas or prejudices.
This is not to suggest that they should suppress their individualism or pizazz, but that they come to better understand the impact of their actions on their environment.
Vigorous physical exercise is recommended, including competitive team sports and endurance activities (mountain climbing, running, water sports) to work off their excess energy and aggression.
People ruled by the number 4 have their own, often peculiar, way of doing things; Uranus indicates sudden changeability and unpredictable action, traits that can be magnified in December 4 people.
Unusual occupations or co-workers will allow them to work in a way more suited to their idiosyncrasies. True, some of them can get mired in frustration and self-pity, and may find their friends teasing them with jokes about their weirdness or strangeness; but for the most part they are proud of who they are, although perhaps unable to explain how they got that way.
Perhaps out of an inner drive to show people who they really are, they can sometimes let aggression run riot, whether it be territorial, intellectual, sexual or emotional. Depending on the depth of the love felt, the other person can get nervous, and back off in fear. Because they tend to give themselves fully to their experiences, they make ardent lovers and appreciative mates and friends. Building a foundation of self-confidence, perhaps slowly over the years, will guarantee them success in the world and keep them from sabotaging their own plans. Those ruled by the number 7 traditionally like change and travel, and this causes no conflicts for May 25 people, who generally enjoy a frequent change of scene (underlined by Mercurya€™s rulership of Gemini). The good side of this card posits success, talent and efficiency; the bad side suggests a dictatorial attitude and a poor sense of direction. Given this low threshold of irritation, they may get stressed out easily, lashing out with irony or sarcasm. In their lifetimes they may leave behind enough unfinished projects to occupy a dozen human beings. If their work gives them the opportunity to innovate, they may continue quite happily in the same position for years. In extreme cases, in fact, they can be constant complainers, though for the most part they just have a periodic need to get their dissatisfactions off their chest.
Those best able to carry on with them will be able to accept their need for stimulation, variety and a regular change of scene. Their first impulses are often to relieve difficulties through prompt and rational action, yet the manner in which they proceed may somehow create more problems than it solves. For December 4 people, more than others, knowing their limitations can save them many frustrations and indignities. Those December 4 people who grow wiser with age learn to harness their energies in a more constructive and productive way, thereby making important social contributions to the life around them.
Learning how to meditate and still the mind, will and desires for a few minutes each day may also be helpful. Those ruled by the number 4 generally show little concern for making money, particularly in their younger years, and this seems to hold true for December 4 people who are often taken up with ideas instead. The positive associations of this card are strong willpower and steadfast energy; negative indications include stubbornness, tyranny, even brutality.
Many who are success-oriented will push to get ahead and rise to the top at any cost; this may be a result of their tremendous need to be accepted.
Even so, they have escapist tendencies, often feeling impelled to retreat or even flee from the problems and exigencies of everyday life.
Their talents may lead them into overconfidence, however, and by overestimating their faculties and abilities they can slip and fall. Perhaps their greatest need is to turn some of their outwardly directed energy inward, and to develop their spiritual side.
These people should be wary, then, of laying too heavy a weight on lovers or friends, and particularly of trying to convince them that they are the a€?only one who understandsa€?a€”a burden that is almost certain to be counterproductive to the relationship. Often extremely attractive, either in their person or their personality, they can be true heartbreakers.
Not only do those born on May 25 hold themselves to this standard, but may expect everyone else to follow it as well. Those born on this day must find a way to live by their code of ethics without paralyzing themselves in introspection or self criticism; their ideals should find expression in pragmatic ways.

Those few people who can approach them emotionally not only bring much-needed warmth but can also make suggestions regarding their sleeping and eating habits, and function as a mirror of objectivity. Their aggression is often a reaction to what they see as incompetence or stupidity, but it does not make them easy to live or work with. Those close to them usually let them run on, picking out the core of the difficulty and letting the rest go in one ear and out the other.
They may recognize the objective needs of a family member, for example, and may seek to satisfy them, yet may fail by not taking their feelings into account.
In time, however, their flirtatious and provocative allure may wear thin if not backed up by a reliably sympathetic stance. Usually blessed with a talent for organization, they have the capacity to listen to their colleagues or employees but tolerate no serious threat to their authority, which must remain unchallenged.
Consequently, December 4 people must make an effort to keep their public and private lives distinct and separate.
December 4 people may do best with a diet built around more stable foods (grains, root vegetables, hearty soups, breads), and reduced emphasis on sugar, spices and alcohol.
Strangely enough, it is often only when these unpredictable people forget about success that they suddenly achieve ita€”as if by accident. The danger that they will involve themselves in questionable activities or drug states is high, and an ever-present threat to their physical and mental health.
They will also benefit by seeking to understand others better, particularly by listening, and to expand their circle of friends and acquaintances. When young, they may experience more than average disappointment in romantic relationships; a common scenario involves idolizing someone who does not return their enthusiasm. Yet their equally strong tendency to act irresponsibly or destructively may finally lead even the most patient of lovers to break up with them. Those born on this day can be extremely unforgiving to those who cross the lines of decency.
Whatever they doa€”be it art, sport, sex, or worka€”is beautifully crafted or executed, but unfortunately can also lack feeling. Otherwise, May 25 people run the danger of becoming unrealistic about what they believe, and a bit out of touch with their true needs.
Further, they may make promises in good faith yet break them later due to new and pressing demands.
They may give conditionally, using rewards as a means of control, and withdrawing rewards as a means of punishment.
As their mates and lovers will attest, these folks can become unhinged with lightning speed; they are at their best when they keep their nerves under control.
For example, highly destructive consequences can result from favoring their own friends in business matters. Due to the influence of the planet Uranus, those ruled by the number 4 can be quick and explosive in their change of mood, qualities enhanced (along with material luck and aggressiveness) in December 4 people by Jupitera€™s rulership of their sign, Sagittarius. In fact becoming more realistic about themselves and the world around them is generally a struggle for these people, who often take on too many activities at once, and occasionally the wrong ones. Engagement in humanitarian pursuits or community projects will help them to normalize their relations with their fellow human beings. A number of rejection notices from several different addresses may be necessary to make them more realistic about their feelings and choices. Honor and personal responsibility are immensely important to them, and their expectations are correspondingly high. Indeed, some born on this day take pride in themselves as cool personalities who are not given to displays of emotion.
Such expression, whether in a form of creativity or simply conversation, reduces the propensity here for psychological frustration. Accordingly, they should avoid all drugs and stimulants, particularly alcohol, that will alter their consciousness or cause them to be less present. Together, they founded The Firefly Foundation, which runs Camp Firefly, a summer camp that gives terminally ill children and their families a free weeka€™s vacation. A good working relationship as a member of a team, or perhaps the reliability of a practical business partner, may serve to ground and direct their energies, keeping them from becoming scattered.
When they do meet someone who will love and understand them, their first response may be to push this person away, perhaps in disbelief.
They have a habit of repeating themselves, so they cannot fairly accuse others of not listening to what they say.
