“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” - Charles Addams
January 7 people often show a decided interest in highly unusual subjects. Perhaps this is because they are rather unusual characters themselves. More than most people, those born on this day have an idiosyncratic approach to many aspects of daily life. Whether through a sense of irony, a piercing insight into human character or just a capacity to observe life around them without fixed preconceptions. January 7 people see much that escapes others.

SEVEN of Spades (Swords) in Tarot
SEVEN of Spades: The 7 of Spades are powerful people and quick thinkers. Illness may come through worry over business - or a frustrated desire to live beyond their means. Their heritage of power is sometimes misdirected to a longing for magnificence until they learn to awaken to understand their greater wisdom. Seven of Spades will work quietly, often secretly, and are usually willing to remain behind the scenes. For that reason they are valuable in secret service and their instinctive discernment of truth or falsehood. They have many friends but few loves. Generosity is a strong point and willingness to serve. In business they are honest and reliable and in love they are generally faithful. http://www.metasymbology.com/
CAPRICORN II The Week of DETERMINATION January 3-9: Those born in the Week of Determination often have the drive and ambition necessary to reach the top of their profession. Whether or not they succeed, no one can fault them for not trying. Capricorn II's are strivers, like the mountain goat who seeks the highest crags. Once embarked on a course of action, they are extremely difficult to dissuade from their plans. No matter how great or modest their gifts, Capricorn II's make the most of their abilities and stretch their talents to the outer edge of the envelope. Capricorn II's are usually pictured as hard-headed, down-to-earth thinkers, but those born in the Week of Determination are often interested in the theoretical, even metaphysical, religious or spiritual subjects and practices. Nor are their ideas in these areas at all conservative; they may in fact be rather radical. No idea is too strange or far out for Capricorn II's to at least consider and they have the undeniable tendency to let their minds range over the broadest questions of cosmology and human existence. This philosophical bent, however, is usually based on fact and observation, for Capricorn II's have little time for idle or ill-founded speculation.
Strengths: RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL, THEORETICAL
Weaknesses: NAIVE, ARMORED, WORKAHOLIC
Advice: Recognize your limitations - they do exist. Allow yourself to give in occasionally, even to fail and acknowledge it. Showing your more vulnerable side should not be threatening. Try to keep your ideals grounded and be sure your "reality" is not in fact an illusion.
NOTABLE Capricorn II's: Elvis Presley, Richard Nixon, Alvin Ailey, Isaac Newton, Louis Braille, Steven Hawking, Diane Keaton, Mel Gibson, Dyan Cannon, Chuck Noll, Victoria Principal, George Reeves, Raisa Gorbachev, Maury Powvitch, Earl Scruggs, Don Shula, Ray Milland; Source: The Secret Language of Relationships Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
The 7 January hangs their Spirituality Star in the Left-Brained, 75% Sensing Real World confidently powered by their Right-Brained 25% Intuitive hole cards. Rand Paul has demonstrated these qualities for all to see in the 2016 Presidential Race. Rand, Couric and Cage display the karmic plight for the 7 of Spades - Recognition of Power . They fail to own their Power because to their way of thinking, it seems unseemly, not nice. The Leo Durocher quote, "Nice guys finish last" fits. One more note: Rand is a southpaw and like Obama all lefties are right-brained.
