There's a certain spark to New Year's children, a magnetism that makes you very popular. Being born on the first of the year naturally drives you toward success. Note that Taurus has some influence here (see the decanates mentioned in Chapter 2). There's no compromising on goals, no slacking on personal development, no principles that the Goat neglects. You may find you have trouble in relationships because the demands of loyalty and responsibility pull you in several directions at once.
Numerologically the birth number 1/1 (January 1) is a 2. That means when your intentions are misread, you're devastated and seek urgently to re-establish peace and understanding. It's important that you keep a good head about you during this process. Your tendency to forge ahead could only make matters worse! Learn when to approach, and when to wait until the timing's better.
In relationships, you aren't necessarily one to settle down. You like variety and constant challenges. If relationships become too comfortable, you will seek more adventurous ground. However, if you find someone who keeps things interesting, and who also enjoys the peaceful energies that a two craves, it could be a match made in heaven.
