The ambitious, charming, and secretly sensitive individuals born in January are classic overachievers by nature. These folks have the ability to juggle multiple tasks (all within different fields), complete each task (prior to the deadline), and come out as number one across the board (because the quality of their work is always impeccable). Their methodical way of living life is what keeps them solid and calm. Any deviation from their agenda can cause stress and agitation. However, they are great at reworking their plans quickly so that they can resume a task, stilling the internal waters once again and continuing on course. These individuals are naturally curious, and critical, of the shortcomings and plights of others. It's not that they are mean, they just have the ability to see the answer to any problem and can't understand why it hasn't been tackled yet! As they get older and become more evolved, they begin to take steps towards being outwardly compassionate and strive to be more understanding of others. Their hidden sensitivity and romantic nature is complemented by a marvelously goofy sense of humor that will be seen only by those closest to them.
