January 1 Birthday Horoscope 2016-2017
If Today is Your Birthday: January 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2016 to January 2017
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:
Neptune transits in harmony with your Sun this year. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive, even mysterious, persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone, away from the hectic pace of life, for reflection and meditation.
Career and life path matters may seem to magically fall into place, taking you in a direction that fits.
Your birthday occurs around a Third Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of greater understanding and a strong desire to take care of business. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. A certain level of unpredictability may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for.
Overall, however, you can experience more popularity or a stronger interest in others and making connections. This is a year of general fortune through your relationships and meetings.
There may be a little more tension or possibly more frequent arguments in the period ahead with a Mercury-Mars square in your Solar Return chart. You can be particularly impatient with vagueness. However, if this energy is applied well, you may simply enjoy a more active mind that strives for clarity. This can be a good year to eliminate wasteful activities. Be careful to avoid sharp or cutting speech and aggressive driving. Engage yourself in debates or studies that stimulate and motivate you.
This can be a pleasantly ambitious period. Spiritual and imaginative activities tend to be in focus. You can be building and beginning friendships and love connections. There is good energy for mental interests and focus, although you should watch for overreaching and tension from thinking or worrying too much. Find ways to relax and unwind in order to minimize stress, and avoid communicating too quickly when you’re agitated.
2016 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2017 will be 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.
