Those born on January 23rd have remarkably distinctive characters which set them apart from everyone else. On the surface these characters can manifest as identifiable styles often exemplified by one particular quality such as their voices, their movements, their speech patterns or their facial mannerisms. Thus while many of us may in fact be rich in character, January 23rd people live it, are it – for all to see. Indeed, the habits they display can make a most memorable first impression.
An important theme in the lives of January 23rd people is the basis of character itself: integrity, moral and ethical strength. Those born on this day may not give the matter much thought, or perhaps even have certain assumptions about their lack of character, but through crises and dire circumstances soon discover what they are made of. If they act in an honorable fashion they can live with themselves; if not they will suffer deeply until they can clear their consciences or improve their self-images – such a vindication may perhaps only be effected through subsequent acts that are courageous or self-sacrificing. But fortunately (or unfortunately as the case may be), sticking to or betraying what they believe in youth may have a seminal and permanent effect on their personality formation and self-image when they are more mature.
The word character has yet a third meaning when applied to January 23rd people, as they may in fact be considered “characters”, that is, eccentric or oddball types. It is possible that they will grow comfortable in such a role, for it relieves them of the need to keep up appearances or be someone they are not. Those January 23rd people less enamored of the social graces or conventional behavior may particularly encourage this perception.
Because character and individualism are such important features in the lives of January 23rd people, they may choose to study, act out or just appreciate these qualities in others. Although those born on this day may believe in being natural, they realize more than most just how important role-playing is for regular human beings and they can become experts at assuming various personas in different points in their lives. Yet through all of this playacting, their unmistakable personality always comes through loud and clear. In this sense, they are transparent individuals.
There is no denying a marked technical, mathematical, or scientific interest attendant to this day as well, and this side of the January 23rd person does not have to do with people at all. Many born on this day have at least a cherished hobby, if not a profession, which is objective in its approach and can involve collecting, discovering, inventing or the like. It is not at all necessary that this technical side be related to their public role for their personal and spiritual development to take place; the two sides often remain quite separate. Those few people who do manage to make the connection, however, particularly when ethically grounded, can distinguish themselves in their professions with telling power and influence.
HEALTH: Those born of January 23rd usually show some resistance to normal health procedures, as they have their own personal way of dealing with disease or body difficulties. When suffering illness, January 23rd people must be particularly careful about making self-fulfilling prophecies or assuming that they have explored all of the health options on their own. Their expectations can also influence the health of their family and friends. Usually, those born on this day have strong food likes and dislikes which are deeply ingrained. As far as exercise is concerned they may be incorrigibly negligent or equally well fanatic at various points in their lives, finding it difficult to keep to a moderate regimen. Those born on this day can benefit from staying open to advice regarding their health, exercise and lifestyle, which expanding their dietary horizons.
ADVICE: Put your technical skills to work. Act honorably, but don’t be fanatical in your expectations of yourself and others. Enjoy fitting in once in a while.
MEDITATION: Makeup generally looks best when unnoticed.
