January 1 Birthday Horoscope 2017-2018
If Today is Your Birthday: January 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2017 to January 2018
If You Were Born Today, January 1:
You are a respectable and strong-willed person who can easily intimidate others simply because others are in awe. You are a highly independent person, although without others around you, you cannot keep control! It’s not that you need to control everything, but you do like having the upper hand, and you generally are reasonable as a leader as well. Your willpower is enormous if you choose to use it, and certainly takes you far. Fear of success and fear of failure are possible downfalls for you–while they are different fears, they lead a person down the same path of accomplishing less than what they are capable of. Famous people born today: J. Edgar Hoover, J. D. Salinger, Sandra Oh, Elin Nordegren, Betsy Ross.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The lunar phase at the time of your birthday this year is the Crescent Moon phase.

You seek out balance and peace, and the platonic elements of a relationship may be emphasized now with great success. There can be a focus on sharing or blending beliefs, morals, and values; or there can be a strong focus on growing and improving through one another. This can also be a very creative, artistic time.

This is a good year for design and balance in your creative life. You can feel energized and inspired creatively at this time, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and your desires.
You have a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced. Power dynamics are improved. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.
Perceptions are more reliable than usual this year, and it’s an active period for self-development. You are more resourceful and might benefit from some great bargains, buys, and finds. You may be recycling ideas from your past and bringing new energy to your projects that increases their success. For some, long-lost friends or lovers can return or an existing relationship can transform and reach a new level.
The year ahead is one for new beginnings and a sense that you have a new lease on life. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly. The period ahead is one of greater consideration for others, self-understanding, enterprise, and winning projects. You meet with people who inspire you to be your best. You have much energy to pour into your pursuits, although you can be a little moody when it comes to motivation for your projects – you need to feel inspired for the energy to flow well.

Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure.

Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
