If You Were Born Today, January 4: (which I was)
You are highly ambitious and responsible, working hard at what you do and rarely letting small setbacks steer you from your course. Goal-oriented, your biggest weakness is a tendency to take on far too much! You are responsible, a fabulous partner, direct and honest, and quite likable as well. You are a practical person who has much sound advice to give for those smart enough to ask you for it. Famous people born today: Sir Isaac Newton, Louis Braille, Jane Wyman, Dyan Cannon, Michael Stipe.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. 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! Now is a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. Hastiness and impatience should be watched for this year, however. You will need to slow down in order to be better understood. This can be a good year in which to eliminate wasteful activities. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully, but do get a feel for your audience and adjust accordingly. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. It would be wise to think before you act and to consider different viewpoints. As well, avoid a scattergun approach to communicating and to your work and projects. You have little patience for those who insist on sticking to traditional methods. Remember that your mind is working very quickly, and others might not always be able to catch up! You possess a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. You may need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional this year, trying to bring a balance between responsibility and pleasure, and between spiritual and material. Decision making may be a little strained as you might often feel you have to choose between two alternatives, each of which is just as attractive!
A freer attitude towards affection and how you express it can attract positive circumstances into your life this year. Although you are generally cooperative and popular, you should watch for hastiness and impatience that can interfere with healthy relating patterns. Your mind is busy and if you can focus on one or two pet projects, you can go far.
