Those born on January 21 are life’s trendsetters. It doesn’t matter what they are doing or what they are saying, people tend to want to follow them and listen to their opinions. They also have tremendous charm and the ability to get along with just about anyone; when all this is combined with their soaring ambition, they have all they need to get to the top.

Freedom of expression is particularly important for people born on this day. They will never find happiness if they are forced to follow the rules or expectations of others, needing to be allowed to follow their own instincts. If they make mistakes it will still be beneficial as they have the ability to learn from their mistakes.

Leadership is something that those born on this day would seem ideally suited to and they often find it thrust upon them, but in the long term they are not natural leaders. This is because they simply aren’t ruthless enough to impose discipline and routine. They are the people with the ideas and the energy to start something new, but it is up to others to see it through to the end.

Alongside their undoubted star quality, people born on this day have a tendency to speak quickly, sometimes spilling out their ideas in a confused way. They also have a tremendous need to be liked, and this can lead to debilitating nervousness and indecision. It is important for them to acknowledge the importance of thinking before they speak and to be less swayed by others’ criticism. Fortunately, a turning point occurs around their thirtieth birthday, sometimes sooner, when their sense of self matures and they begin to rely more on their own instincts.

Their unusual charm and personality enable them to forge ahead in life and to go places very few people are able to go. They don’t like to be tied down but if they can learn that a little staying power sometimes goes a long way, these boldly original people really can break boundaries and set new limits for others to aspire to.

People born on this day like to experiment with diets and exercise regimes, and could even create a lifestyle plan of their own to pass on to others. Because of their open-minded and knowledgeable approach to health they tend to understand the connection between diet, lifestyle and good health, and so are likely to take care of themselves. Having said that, they need to careful that they don’t take things to extremes; activities that are both healthy and social, like golf or rambling, are extremely positive for them. If stress threatens their sense of well-being, burning a chamomile-, lavender- or sandalwood-scented candle can help produce a calming effect.

Career Born artists

The combination of innovation and sensitivity that marks these people gives them great potential to succeed in the arts, in particular novel writing. Their charming personality also gives them the ability to generate ideas; they will excel in any career which values this skill, such as academia, technology, sales or business. On the other hand their natural empathy with the underdog may also lead them into the arenas of charity work, politics, law and social reform.

Destiny To inspire and improve the lives of others

The life path of people born on this day is to understand that they need to trust and act upon their instincts. Once they have learned that lesson, their destiny is to inspire and improve the lives of others.
