Rethink your priorities

If you had one year to live, what would your priorities be?

People born on January 12 don’t do things by half measures and once they have settled on a goal they pursue it with intense and single-minded dedication. Whatever their calling in life, whether it be raising a family, teaching a class or running for president, it becomes their single purpose in life. They are forever on the look-out for opportunities, ideas and people that can help them achieve their goals. Because work is so important to them and they run the risk of sacrificing their personal identity to it, it is vital that they choose their careers wisely.

The need to be the center of attention that characterizes people born on this day is more often than not a result of putting their emotional life on hold in pursuit of their goals in life. Sometimes they can be so driven that they lose touch not only with their friends and family but also with themselves. It is extremely important therefore for people born on this day to remember to respect not only their own feelings but also the feelings of others. They need to carve out a personal life separate from work and a spiritual life that gives them regular time out. Typically around the age of thirty-nine, hopefully sooner, they place more emphasis on their emotional life; this is reflected in their dreams and their visions, as well as the way in which they interact with others.

The single-minded approach of people born on this day, combined with their sharp wit and strong level of commitment, can promise great potential for success. And if all that wasn’t enough, they also appear to be blessed with uncanny good fortune. Just as they can swing between high and low moods, their lives can also swing between disaster and sudden good fortune. Out of the blue they may receive a gift, a promotion or the break that they need. Finding balance by placing more emphasis on emotional and spiritual ideals is the key to their survival and their ability to attract all that they need to rise to the very top.

On the dark side

Restricted, extreme, arrogant

At your best

Tolerant, dedicated, insightful

Love Learn to relax

Those born on January 12 are attracted to people who share their singleminded approach to life. They are, however, actually happier with people who are less driven and single-minded and who have a more casual, relaxed approach. Such people can give them the perspective and the fun they need to unwind. Although they may appear confident when it comes to affairs of the heart, they can be reserved and may find it hard to commit or make the first move.

Health Don’t take your health for granted

Those born on this day tend to take their health for granted as they pursue their goals. More often than not they have a strong constitution and remarkable energy but if they neglect their health or burn the midnight oil for too long they are at risk of becoming overweight, unfit or malnourished. It is important for them to have a routine of regular exercise, and to eat regular meals and snacks to keep their energy and their metabolism on the go. Meditation will encourage their self-awareness and to stop themselves from overeating sweet foods to keep their energy levels up, the sweet smell of vanilla will help stop that sweet tooth.

Career Born winners

The sky really is the limit for these people. They are likely to succeed in whatever career they choose because they are so single-minded in their approach. The biggest struggle for them is not likely to be progressing in their career but deciding what career to pursue in the first place. If they decide to become self-employed they can do well as a trader, an agent or a negotiator. Although independent-minded, they can work well in cooperative situations, often excelling in diplomacy, politics, coaching and team sports. They may also wish to explore their considerable artistic and musical talents.

Destiny To dedicate themselves to a cause or purpose

The life path of people born on this day is to dedicate themselves to a purpose or cause. Once they are able to find a sense of balance, their destiny is to live through glory as well as defeat and in the process achieve true greatness.
