Luck maker

Allow others to give to you

Luck is always knocking on your door, but it won’t come to you unless you open the door and are willing to let luck in.

People born on January 23 are dissenters. They dislike and often refuse to take orders or even advice from other people and prefer to live according to their own rules, devoting themselves to their own ideals. Although this approach has its risks, more often than not their courageous and buoyant character sees them making, rather than obeying, the rules.

Rarely motivated by financial reward alone, January 23 people are idealistic and desire to live a richly rewarding life. This quality, along with their original thinking and natural sense of style, makes them stand out from the crowd in a positive way. They truly are inspirational figures.

Despite their can-do attitude and charisma, people born on this day never feel quite worthy of the admiration they attract. Although this adds further to their charm, it can sometimes hold them back. However, once they are able to believe in themselves, there is nothing to stop them achieving their own dreams.

With their splendid disregard for convention and highly intellectual and original approach to life, January 23 people find that they can get along with almost everyone they meet, although people with more materialistic motivations present a challenge; people who throw their money about, or who are trying to impress others and climb socially, particularly repulse them. This is because integrity and moral strength are the ideals by which they live their lives.

Understanding the limitations of the human body, those born on this day prefer to live an intellectual life. This can make those close to them occasionally feel excluded and it is important for them to understand that they need a fully integrated personality able to offer others a sensitive depth of understanding. Typically around the age of twenty-eight they become more emotionally receptive and sensitive toward the needs of others.

If those born on this day can make sure that their fascination with the abstract does not take precedence over their personal relationships, they have the potential to become rebels not just with a cause but with ideals that will have an influence on the world around them.

On the dark side

Isolated, rebellious, troubled

At your best

Principled, independent, courageous

Love Marriage of minds

Those born on January 23 definitely need a partner who can challenge them intellectually, as they love to talk about almost anything. They need the freedom to be themselves but also the stability of a secure and loyal partner. They need to be careful that their independent and self-reliant attitude doesn’t make partners think they don’t need anyone but themselves. These people need a close relationship far more than they would ever admit to.

Health Headstrong

Those born on this day are distrustful of doctors and only seek medical advice as a last resort. They like to feel that they are the expert on their health and they will have strong beliefs about the food they eat and the kind of exercise routines they undertake. Because of this, they can either be extremely fanatical about their health or completely disinterested; it is important for them to learn to seek the advice of experts when it is appropriate, because although most of the time they are the best judge of what works for them, sometimes they aren’t. Reading, meditating or surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to be more open-minded and to accept change with trust and optimism.

Career Born academics

These people are naturally drawn to intellectual pursuits, thriving in student or academic environments. Their analytical mind also marks them out as potential scientists, although any career which can keep their mind constantly stimulated will appeal. Their more practical side may be drawn to business or market research, their idealistic side may attract them toward charity work, their rebellious side may draw them toward working on their own as an entrepreneur; but whatever career they choose, their originality will find ways to express itself in a unique and creative way.

Destiny To bring fresh new insights into the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to keep their feet firmly on the ground without losing their rebellious streak and individuality in the process. Their destiny is to bring fresh and new insights into the world and to encourage others to see things they normally take for granted in a wholly new light.
