Learn to handle impatience

When you are impatient, angry or bored, you can’t attract good things into your life.

People born on January 22 have an electrifying energy about them. Their imaginative powers are often so advanced that the world isn’t always ready for them. This can create a sense of frustration, but if they believe in themselves, hold onto their vision and direct their energy constructively, the world will eventually sit up and notice. Their greatest enemy is not respon-sibility or even authority but tedium and bureaucracy.

The restless, explosive energy of people born on this day gives them the ability to be extraordinarily successful in whatever goal they choose but they do need to learn the importance of patience and discipline if they are to find stability and satisfaction in their lives. If people born on this day don’t understand or they can’t see their way ahead they are also likely to lose their temper, with explosive results. They would make their lives considerably easier if they learned to appreciate the opinions of others more, even if they differ from their own. This will fuel their creativity further and encourage others to work cooperatively with them instead of against them. Fortunately, by the age of twenty-nine they typically begin to develop a sense of self-restraint and discipline, and this will mark an important turning point in their life.

Above all, people born on this day have the ability to reach out to the world and to explain or present it with something totally unique. Being an unconventional visionary is their special gift. They don’t just break the rules, they destroy them and make new ones.

Not surprisingly their uncompromising approach to life will earn them a number of critics along the way, but opposition neither surprises nor disturbs them. Honor and being true to themselves are important, and they will always do what they know to be right, regardless of what others think. This is a high-risk approach to life that has its dangers, but they should never be scared to be themselves—others will respect, admire and ultimately benefit from them for it.

On the dark side

Headstrong, hasty, explosive

At your best

Passionate, imaginative, ground-breaking

Love Catch me if you can

People born on January 22 are never short of admirers but they may find relationships challenging as their head is always off in a new direction. They are prone to mood swings and are drawn toward intelligent and progressive thinkers who share their love of adventure and constant change. However, once they find a partner who is able to keep up and cope, they really do enjoy and benefit from the peace and stability a close relationship can bring.

Health Life in the fast line

People born on this day tend to live life in the fast lane so they need to watch their blood pressure and susceptibility to stress-related illnesses. As far as diet is concerned regular meals and snacks are essential to keep their energy levels high, and they should never go on fasts or extreme diets. Vigorous exercise is recommended to help them work off some of that energy, as are mind-body therapies, such as meditation, that can help them get in touch with their inner self. Wearing, meditating and surrounding themselves with light green and blue will encourage them to take action and to enjoy moderation.

Career Born travelers

These people don’t just need variety; it is their life force, so they thrive in careers that offer them fast change and plenty of travel and do not involve routine. They make great travel guides, pilots, astronauts, airline personnel and navigators, as well as accomplished journalists, actors, musicians, artists, poets and even chefs. Whatever career they choose, these multi-talented individuals need action and constant challenge, otherwise they quickly lose interest.

Destiny To amaze those around them

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to control their tendency to flit from one project to another, one relationship to the next, without exploring fully or really getting to know another person. Once they have learned the importance of patience and introspection, they have the potential to amaze those around them, whatever they choose to do.
