January 1 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2010 to January 2011
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, Elin Nordegren, Betsy Ross.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events this year can bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended; or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
The Sun in creative aspect to Mars and Uranus in your Solar Return chart adds a spontaneous, creative, and original spin to your personality this year. You are more willing to take chances, and flexibility is one of the keys to success in the period ahead. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
Mercury conjunct the Moon’s North Node and sextile Uranus suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers or scientific projects. Unexpected gains may be realized through these things. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year.
Your love life is likely to go through some level of transformation this year. Your attitude towards love is more impassioned, but you need to examine your needs to control the direction of it, as attempts to do so just won’t work this year. Some of you might be dealing with matters of power and control in your personal relationships. Changing roles, restructuring, and hard work can be associated with your love relationships this year, but it can also apply to your personal finances. There may be the need to “get real” in your personal relationships this year. Changes may be in store, and decisions might need to be made whether to leave a friendship behind or renew its unspoken vows on some level–to reinvent it, in other words. There may also be a need to buckle down with finances, perhaps a large purchase or financial obligation that requires changes in your spending habits (towards the conservative!).
Energy and mood fluctuations are expected to figure strongly in the year ahead. Conserve energy whenever you can.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun occurs for you starting in October 2010, and is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself during this period. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time this year, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities this year, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent at some point this year. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you need be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
Saturn is square to Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This suggests a need for you to come to terms with your own powers of authority and your effectiveness. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation are possible themes this year. You may desire change, but feel blocked by others or by circumstances. Alternatively, you may be attempting to resist change that is inevitable. Persistence will pay off in the end, and the need to adjust your expectations becomes obvious.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life.
A busy year is ahead of you, but it’s also one that can be very rewarding. People around you may be needier or more demanding of your time–overall you will find yourself in demand. Mental projects and studies fare especially well this year. Major restructuring of your life will help you to clear your head and to get your priorities straight, particularly with regards to your finances and love life.
