Research has found that having your birthday in January has in fact some unique and lucky qualities which may possibly lead to a prosperous life!
First and foremost, people are often broke from Christmas so rounding up a crew for your birthday party can often be a struggle come January.
Then there’s the weather. Unless you’re fortunate enough to live in a part of the world where the sun shines more often than it doesn’t, it’s likely January won’t afford you the conditions for a party where guests can gather outside.
That said, there are plenty of benefits to being born in the first month of the year. Big ones, if researchers are to be believed …
‘If you were born in January, you have almost 12 months’ growth ahead of your classmates born late in the year,’ says Adrian Barnett from Queensland University to Science Daily.
Ok so we agree your birthday in January or February isn’t always the ideal time when it comes to weather as it tends to be a bit cold and miserable.
Statistics show that January babies are real go-getters when it comes to their careers out of the spotlight too.
The study in particular looked at 100 celebrities with “different lifestyles”. Included in this were politicians, entrepreneurs, singers, actors, athletes, researchers and writers.
The results showed that a huge number of rich, successful and famous individuals celebrate their birthdays in the months of January and February.
Over-presented in professions
Supposedly the difference in primary school subjects are related to career choices- for example, January babies, over-represented when it comes to high-status professions.
Researchers also discovered those born between January 20 and February 18 had increased chances of becoming famous. From 1992 to 2009, studies of 500 companies found that children in January are more inclined to become a CEO.
Many of the world’s most famous individuals are born under the Aquarius star sign. These include Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jennifer Aniston, Bob Marley, Michael Jordan, Abraham Lincoln, Ashton Kutcher along with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
So, if you are feeling blue about celebrating your birthday in January? Fear not as, you’ve got plenty to smile about!
