January 8th Birthday Horoscope 2019-2020
If Today is Your Birthday: January 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2019 to January 2020
If You Were Born Today, January 8:
You have a strong sense of purpose and responsibility. You easily feel guilty, and you’re often found weighing pros and cons, as you are able to see both sides to any situation. While you are sensitive and naturally retiring, you are also very aware of your reputation and image, and you’ll rise to most challenges. Others might not know that you have a competitive streak, and you can be quite stubborn. Famous people born today: Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Stephen Hawking, Soupy Sales, Sarah Polley.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon Solar Eclipse, 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. You’re turning over a new leaf this year.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You experience a stabilizing Saturn transit to your Sun in the period ahead. With this transit, you are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and honoring tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you,” people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, will benefit you for years to come. One of the keys to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
The need to “get serious” about areas of your life where you’ve been slacking is likely now as Saturn passes over your Sun this year. New responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are likely to take them more seriously. Gone are the rose-colored glasses! With your ability to accurately assess your life, you can make real headway. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals.
You also have a Neptune transit to your Sun that is quite different and helps round out your year. Neptune’s acceptance and devotion can help bring new meaning to your work, traditions, and customs. It’s easier to enjoy a sense of purpose in your life this year. You’re following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort succeeds.
This is a powerful year for motivation levels regarding your work or projects and personal interests. There can be opportunities to pursue absorbing topics and pursuits. More joy and meaning may be found in your work or obligations and responsibilities.
At the same time, relationships get a boost. You’re likely to feel pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life.
With Venus trine the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.
However, it’s important to watch for hasty words and actions with Mercury in hard aspect to Mars. There’s good energy for debate or energetic mental work with you, but there can be some arguments or tension that comes from impatience this year.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
You’re starting a new chapter of your life in the year ahead. This is a powerful period for connecting with others and sharing common goals and pleasures. You are both inspired and responsible at this time in your life. The year ahead is a time for building your confidence and sharpening your focus on priorities and improvements. You’re getting your life back on track in some significant way at this time. You’re likely to guide others in some manner.
2019 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
2020 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It's "nose to the grindstone" time. It's a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
