January 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: January 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2009 to January 2010
The Sun in harmonious aspect to both Saturn and Uranus around the time of your birthday indicates that you are likely to want to bring reform or restructure to your life and perhaps your career and life goals. While you are willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year, you are also considering and honoring traditional methods and responsibilities. You are flexible, yet organized and realistic. This attitude benefits you in most life “departments”. Even so, Mercury is in hard aspect to these same planets, and there can be times this year when you experience “paralysis by analysis”–indecision due to weighing two sides to any given situation.
Venus sextile Mars in your Solar Return signifies pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships this year. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Marriage could occur in such a year. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you may very well come out a winner.
Mars in harmonious aspect to Uranus suggests 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 the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It indicates an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Relationships tend to be pleasantly stimulating and fun this year. You are eager to take on a challenge and happily engage in friendly competition. You are bound to make new and stimulating friendships through learning and mental pursuits in the year ahead. Perhaps your biggest challenges this year are indecision and variable energy levels.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
