January 1 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2008 to January 2009
With the Sun trine Saturn in your Solar Return chart, work you have done begins to pay off this year. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year when you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Mars opposes Jupiter and Pluto at the time of your birthday, adding quite a bit of intense energy to your year. Although you are bound to show great enthusiasm for your endeavors this year, over-estimating what you are capable of doing is a potential problem. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. Your energy levels run high this year, but you should watch for hasty or impetuous behavior. Remember that “haste makes waste”. Mars opposition Pluto in your Solar Return suggests that you have powerful, transformative energy at your disposal this year, and much will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
With Mars trine the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
With Jupiter conjunct Pluto in your Solar Return chart, an increased need for shared interests with others, as well as for adventurous or risky undertakings, is with you this year as you strive for more personal significance. Benefits may come through those in authority or the government. The year ahead is one of personal growth and expansion–an ambitious time when a desire for success is especially strong. Your ability to sway or persuade others is enhanced. One of the most positive uses of this influence is a drive to better yourself. You might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden. Social or material goals may come into strong focus, and reform could figure this year. Your faith may be reborn or developed strongly now. You might decide to invest your time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. You should take advantage of the increased drive this influence brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. In general, big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce are well-starred for you this year. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely in the year ahead.
You are driven and motivated this year. You are willful, ambitious, and determined to not only meet your goals, but to exceed them. Channeling excess energy into physical activity can help relieve stress. Avoiding manipulative tactics and power games is important. Recognition for your accomplishments is forthcoming, and adopting a thoughtful and disciplined approach to life works wonders for you. Hard work truly pays off this year!
2008 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2009 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.
