January 4 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 4
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2009 to January 2010
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Mars conjunct Pluto around the time of your birthday this year indicates that your ambition is stimulated–you are determined to meet or exceed your goals! You can bring great discipline and meaning to your life this year. This is a powerful influence that helps you focus on your goals, take decisive action, and go after what you want. You won’t take “no” for an answer this year. You might totally revise an important project or area of your life, or you could be bent on getting rid of something in your life in order to move forward. The tendency to be too forceful or wilful this year should probably be avoided. You should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when you enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, focus, and determination.
Mars is also in harmonious aspect to Uranus, suggesting bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. However, Mars in challenging aspect to Neptune cautions you to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. Take an objective look also at how your dreams and visions fit into the lives of others and the world in general. This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative.
Mercury conjunct Jupiter indicates that your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself verbally and in written from comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.
Venus sextile Pluto in your Solar Return chart is a subtle yet significant influence. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year.
This year, your determination and ambition are stimulated. You are highly motivated, and perhaps sometimes driven or obsessed. It’s a strong year for learning a new trade, solving problems, publishing, public relations, negotiations, and presenting your ideas. Improving upon, or developing, deep personal relationships also figures in the period ahead. Avoid making purely emotionally-driven decisions.
2009 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.
2010 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.
