January 8th Birthday Love Astrology

January 8 is laden with talent and good looks and capable of earning phenomenal sums of money. Also capable of inspiring mass love-ins, being famous and very probably owning their own private jet. So why, oh why, is this Saturninny moaning and generally squelching about like a half-set jelly?

The answer is that the very successful birthday boys and girls who arrive here on January 8 suffer from the Paradise Syndrome. Sufferers have class, money, success and all the time they're wondering if anybody really likes them for themselves, how long they can go on being successful, and if they've got a temperature. Whatever their talent, people born on this day should get realistic about why people like them. The truth is, people do like them for their fame and popularity. They probably also like January 8 because they're good at netball and have a nice laugh, so it's really unrealistic to keep asking if people would like you just as much if it was an ugly laugh.

The streak of hypochondria and anxiety is a powerful influence here. Over consciousness of possible illnesses may be so burdensome that professional help should be sought. Fortunately these extremes are uncommon. In fact the tendency to pessimism may be painful but it's sometimes a useful antidote to the swollen head. January 8 may fear that he or she will be ‘found out', but the fact is they're extremely good at what they do. It's not a flash in the pan, but based on talent.

Although they are rather inward looking, these individuals are capable of enormous generosity and intelligence. Deeply empathetic they may work for mankind's greater good. And faced with a real rather than imagined challenge, they can become inspiringly brave.

All of these individuals need solitude. While it is necessary to know they can go back to family, lovers and friends, too much socialising can genuinely disturb their spiritual balance and make them unhappy.

In Love

Goats born on this day are lusty creatures with a deep-seated need to love and be loved. Even so, you are extremely cautious with regard to your intimate relationships. Used to being in control, you dislike the feeling of vulnerability. Moreover, any potential partner must meet your extremely high expectations. You only let down your guard when you feel secure enough to trust your lover completely. If you are hurt or disappointed, you may express your disdain with an icy stare or swift jibe. However, when you find the one who is right for you, you make a passionate, loving, caring mate.

In Bed

You work at love with the same diligence you apply to other areas of your life. Emotionally, you’re somewhat rigid, but on a physical level you are ardent and responsive. Not a tease, you consider coquettish game playing and sappy romantic overtures a waste of time. Highly sexed and quickly aroused, your usual approach to lovemaking, although respectful and refined, is no-nonsense direct. Whatever you lack in the romance depart-ment, you make up for in skill and sexual prowess.


Sometimes natural remedies can alter a hypochondriacal Paradise Syndrome mindset. Of the 38 Bach Flower remedies, heather (Calluna vulgaris) was made for January 8. Heather relates to optimism and the soul qualities of empathy and readiness to help. It will balance the personality of someone who relates to the world as a ‘needy child’ and indulges in excessive worrying. Heather will also help to firmly underline a sense of ones own talent and the proper enjoyment of recognition for achievements fairly won. Those who take it report that they become better listeners, more sympathetic to others and feel they are radiating strength and confidence.


Even with your businesslike, Saturnian attitude toward your sexuality, you can be vamped or seduced under the right circumstances. As long as the initial approach is low key and takes place behind closed doors, it usually doesn’t take very long for you to throw all caution to the wind and give full rein to your earthy sexuality.


Lucky January days include 3, 5, 11, 19, 22 and 25. These are the days which are good for business transactions - except speculation. Extra luck comes to achievements on the sports field. These dates are particularly fortunate for young people.

Reality Check

Your tough outer shell notwithstanding, you’re likely to experience inner feelings of loneliness and alienation. You demand constant reassurances from your loved one. What you’re really seeking is proof of love. As a result, you’re not always the easiest person to live with. However, once you’ve satisfied your need for emotional security and acceptance, you make an exceedingly loyal and devoted lover.
