The energy of a new beginning on the 1st of January is a powerful guiding light to an individual born on this special day. Imagine the world celebrating the start of something new, setting free from everything old, and feel the inner push towards new things those born on this date share.

January 1st Horoscope

(Pluto) – SUN – (Pluto) – SUN

This date stands for a combination of two powerful individuals with all their shadows following them in secret. It is a time that shows dark things surfacing when a person is faced with someone equal to their strength of will and character. It stands for an image of two rams on a narrow bridge, pushing each other into death, just as much as it shows two kings riding to battle side by side. This is a planetary-numeral combination that asks for outmost and unconditional respect, for oneness to become a shared cause, teaching a person how to find the golden middle in every situation in life.

Love and Emotions

People born on the 1st of January are extremely passionate individuals, guided by their awareness and their own inner light. Although they won't seem like extremely social or open for loving bonds, relationships with true impact will leave an incredibly deep mark in their emotional world and make them vulnerable to the point of agony. Magnetic pull of certain people and the repulsion they feel for others will define their path of the heart. Attracted to those they disrespect and those some might call karmic enemies, they will have a task to bring out the darkest of the unconscious desires into their conscious world and shine a light on darkness within.

While they might not feel lucky when it comes to matters of the heart, they are in fact blessed by confidence and the ability to find someone equally powerful and deep. This is an individual that simply doesn't make unnecessary compromises and will never settle for less than what they know they deserve. Relationships will satisfy them only when they find those as strong and capable as they are.


Although we would anticipate the first of January to be the strong pointer to someone's individuality, it is in fact the date of togetherness and unity between two whole individuals. It bears the attraction of opposites, of deeply built personalities, and gives promise of important encounters this person will have in their lifetime. Every January 1st birth holds the strong power of something that starts as unity of two, and partnerships of all kinds are possible here. True creativity and inspiration will come when one accepts the weaknesses in other people.

What They Excel In

A January 1st individual is always deep and in search for answers that need to be dug out. They will find their place in psychology and archaeology, or simply have a lot of fun working night shifts with several worthy coworkers. No matter their specific social role, those born on this day will always have a task to find what needs to heal and regenerate after a storm, in their own life or the life of other people.

January 1st Birthday Gift

Your gift to a person born on January 1st should be something demystifying, strangely satisfying to their senses while shining a light on deep, dark, inner issues. It is a book on Carl Gustav Jung, as much as a simple modern lamp that is supposed to stand in the darkest corner of their apartment. Choose something intriguing, even if it might not be based on attitudes they entirely agree with.

Positive Traits for January 1st Born

Powerful and resourceful individuals with an incredible potential for a successful life, influential and knowing exactly where they belong. They are assertive, strong-willed, with a deep understanding for natural development of any issue at hand.

Negative Traits for January 1st Born

Inventors and great minds that turn to solitude and separate from the ideal of emotional fulfillment. Manipulative, they may be using questionable methods to reach their goals.

Healing Crystal

Although a January 1st birthday doesn't necessarily mean one needs a boost to their inner fire, it is always good for this person to have a Libyan Desert Glass in their home. It resonates to their third chakra, raises their energy level, and keeps them safe from possible self-destructive tendencies triggered by the feeling of loneliness and being misunderstood.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Capricorns born on January 1st of any year that isn't a leap year:

“A Large Group of Pheasant on a Private Estate”

The Sabian symbol for Capricorns born on January 1st of a leap year:

“An Albatross Feeding from The Hand of a Sailor”

These symbols stand for a connection of nature with a human, both sharing their love of flight and the ability for perspective shifts needed to get ahead. It is clear that natural forces are here to be tamed and used, as well as those hidden wings they were born with.
