January 5 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2011 to January 2012
If You Were Born Today, January 5: Extremely versatile, you are multi-talented, clever, and imaginative. You are highly compassionate and sensitive, sometimes to the point of despondency, and it can take time in your life to find effective ways to manage this trait. Emotional impulsiveness is something you are likely to struggle with in your life time. When focused, you have strong leadership skills and a strong will as well. You are independent and unique, very perceptive, and highly original. Famous people born today: Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Marilyn Manson, Walter Mondale.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.
You may lose your fear of taking risks at this time, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, but not necessarily ready to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
With Venus square to Neptune, some caution with your personal finances and regarding your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances. Because Venus is also in favorable aspect to Uranus and Jupiter, the outcome is likely quite good. However, do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when things fail to measure up to your dreams and ideals.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun until August 2011 is a rather sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself this year. 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 during this period, 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. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! As long as you work hard, but take time for relaxation and meditation as well, there is nothing to worry about. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, it will be helpful to take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Consider that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. 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.
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.
New beginnings are likely in the year ahead – you are making important decisions, and perhaps changing directions in key areas of life. Hard work and increased responsibilities are likely this year, but you will also have many opportunities to enjoy yourself. Increased social activity is indicated. There can be some attraction to wasteful activities that should be watched for.
2011 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2012 will be 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.
