January 16 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 16
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2011 to January 2012
If You Were Born Today, January 16: You are playful yet ambitious. While security is extremely important to you, so is personal freedom and you have a very determined, self-centered streak. You are smart, a little defiant at times, and very convincing and persuasive. There is certainly a bit of an entertainer in you, even those of you who are on the shy side. While you are a real thinker and dreamer, you are also a doer. You are spiritual and always aware that life is about something much more than the mundane. Famous people born today: Ethel Merman, Laura Schlessinger, Dizzy Dean, Sade, Kate Moss, Gabrielle Reece, Aaliyah.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: An instinctive need for change is with you, and you could find that you’re eliminating a lot of waste, both literally and figuratively speaking. Your intellectual curiosity knows few bounds and it tends to lead you in the right direction. Learning and communications can take you into new territory and afford you the opportunity to make the right connections. This is a year of renovations, eliminating bad habits, and ridding yourself of outworn attitudes that have previously held you back from moving forward. Your attitude now is one that more readily embraces changes.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies many of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful. Watch, however, for blowing things out of proportion.
Emotional connections are improved this year, particularly in your love life. You are especially warm and supportive with the people you care about.
This year, you can go far with high energy levels and inner resolve. Do what you can to direct your energies into useful and helpful channels. You can feel empowered by your strength of will. Asserting your needs in partnership tends to be favored this year, and your powers of attraction increase with your confidence in yourself.
Professional as well as personal opportunities are bound to emerge this year. The ability to see the “big picture” helps you to plan more effectively.
You will be making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. This should be an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Independent work is favored and competitive activities, such as sports or business-related endeavors, may also thrive.
Jupiter joined with Uranus is found in your Solar Return chart, and this suggests the need for progressive change in your life. You might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. You are open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with you.
You are breaking free from the past and some traditions in order to embrace new ways of thinking and new ways of going after what you want. You are able to capitalize on opportunities to advance as they arise, and you are likely to make connections with others that help you to do so. Relationships are more supportive this year.
2011 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.
2012 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.
