"Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them -- if you want to. Just as some day, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry."
- J.D. Salinger, author (born January 1, 1919)

What is the significance of being born on the first day of the year? Do you feel the pressure of being special -- the gift of the New Year? Do you always need to be first? Were you born with a whole host of past life New Year's resolutions programmed into your genes? Are you obsessed with goals and resolutions? Do you have an attachment to the beginning of cycles? Do you come into this life feeling hungover? Or are you just another over-achieving Capricorn?


Share a free sample Sexual Soul Mates Reading. This hot and steamy reading for two will help you uncover your deepest desires and enhance your connection as a couple.
Chances are, all of the above apply to some degree. You may even have been the first person born for a particular year, which would make your birth all the more special. Your solar return (return of the Sun to its position at your birth) falls at the beginning of the New Year, which could either double your efforts to reset your life on January 1, or make you feel jipped while everyone else gets at least two chances for fresh-start do-overs -- one on their birthday, and one on January 1.

Numerology-wise, the numbers 1 and 11 will surely play a huge role in your life, giving you all the attributes of personalities attached to the number 1. You're blessed with that innate leadership and self-starter quality that makes you a born entrepreneur. You desire to be admired for your courage and your innovative ideas. You thrive when it comes to launching new projects and being the first to come up with the next exciting idea.

Others may accuse you of believing you have the answers to everything, but that's just your wisdom shining through. The danger of being born on January 1 could be a feeling that you have to present yourself as forever new, infallible and perhaps perfect. Trust that you are just as entitled to be in process as the rest -- even if others forever look to you to lead the way.
