January 20 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 20
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2011 to January 2012
If You Were Born Today, January 20: You are a responsible and reliable person who values security but doesn’t always offer it! You have an unusual sense of humor, your own distinct style, and a real flair for handling money as well as for money-making ideas. In your life time, one of your biggest lessons is to develop faith in yourself and to trust in your intuition, which is strong and rarely steers you in the wrong direction. While it can take some time for your heart to be captured by another, once it is, you give a lot to the people you trust and love, and sometimes a little too much until you learn to ask that others meet you halfway. Famous people born today: George Burns, Bill Maher, Skeet Ulrich, David Lynch.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: A Full Moon 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 occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. 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.
Uranus is transiting sextile your Sun again this year. You may lose your fear of taking risks on a social level, happily embracing all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary this year. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.
Your capacity for achievement this year is great. You tend to go about reaching your goals quietly and instinctively, without much flash or show, and this seems to work best for you this year.
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.
You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. Your energy levels are generally strong this year, and your sense of timing better than usual. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity is likely. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year.
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.
With Venus sextile Saturn in your Solar Return chart, certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
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.
A stronger sense of purpose is with you this year, and this benefits many life “departments”. At the same time, you are open to change and this helps add more sparkle to your personality. The year is likely to be an exceptionally busy, sometimes demanding, period of your life. You are likely to see the culmination of certain projects in your life this year.
2011 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2012 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
