January FOURTH (10s) the Day of the FORMULATORS:
The Jack of Clubs Club
Those born on January 4 have a natural talent for solving all sorts of problems. Most often this gift is of a technical nature. Those born on this day specialize in examining the situation and summing up what is wrong with it in a terse, concise style. By being able to formulate what others find it difficult to conceptualize they put themselves in great demand.
Strengths: Conceptual, Structured, Pragmatic
Weaknesses: Dogmatic, Closed, Intolerant
ADVICE: Not everything in life can be designated or formulated. Respect others, even if they are on the wrong track. Be open to new ways of doing things. Improve your own methods, and don't be afraid to improvise when necessary. In a word - loosen up.
BORN ON THIS DAY: Sir Isaac Newton, Jacob Grimm (Grimm's Fairy Tales), Louis Braille, Jean Dixon (psychic), Jane Wyman, Floyd Patterson, Don Shula; The Secret Language of Birthdays Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
MEDITATION: The world of the unknown must always be respected.

TEN of Spades: For these people, home and business are closely associated - and one may seriously interfere with the other. Often times the Ten of Spades is found conducting business at home, hampered by constant interruptions and lack of application! The position of the 10 of Spades is a combination of good mind and good judgment and these qualities may be especially operative in the realm of finance. During their early adulthood, there can be emotional disturbances in the home caused by financial limitations. They expect to work and don't want to be dependent on anyone, but uncertainty about what sort of work will bring them the speediest returns, often lands them in jobs that are beneath their capabilities. The Ten of Spades can appear aloof or secretive, but they are actually very sensitive people with quick, ever-changing 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. More 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 I'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.
