If Today is Your Birthday: January 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2016 to January 2017
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:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Jupiter transits trine your Sun until June 2016, and you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn (although you may have felt this already in October 2015). This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a strong time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
Pluto finishes its transit conjunct your Sun in September, and until then, you continue to re-define your basic personality and life path. Your personal goals come up for evaluation, and you may find that you are becoming a “new” person in many ways. There may be some event that leads you to uncover a stronger “you”. Frustrations on the job or in your personal life are likely to enforce some kind of positive change. This is an extremely creative and dynamic period in your life when you should expect to make some significant changes in your life. Some struggles are more than likely as you forge a new identity and life path. Something has to change, and change it will! Your best bet is to avoid resisting change, simply because resistance tends to attract chaos. The result will be a re-worked and re-defined “you”.
Uranus has finished its challenging transit to your Sun, however, and this suggests less instability overall, although you are likely to make some calculated changes.
Venus conjuncts Saturn and squares Neptune around the time of your birthday this year. Uncertainty in Venus-ruled areas of life (romance, social life, and finances) can be a theme at times this year, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be yet.
Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or close relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can be helpful, but you may need to find a better balance between responsibility and extracurricular activities. Aim to come to a stronger sense of reality and purpose, particularly with your finances, romantic, or social relationships. A romance may be solidified or an attachment to an older or more mature partner could be part of the picture. 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.
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.
You are generally optimistic, helpful, and eager to share your ideas and wisdom this year. Good energy is with you for debate, travel, and higher education. 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, however. 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.
There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships this year. You are taking love seriously. There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters, but do watch for putting too much energy into dysfunctional situations.
Deep changes in your personality and attitude or outlook on life continue for several months this year. There is good energy this year 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. You are generally optimistic and devoted. Take better care of money and resources so that you don’t overlook important details.
2016 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2017 will be 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.
