What the ANC’s birthday horoscope says

2015-01-08 11:35

Today the ANC turns 103. City Press looks to the stars (or rather, to some astrology websites) to find out what’s in store for the governing party today and in the 12 months ahead.


January 8 babies’ year ahead: “There is a lot of charm in your presentation this year. Learning, communications, studies, and friendships are favoured this year. Projects and personal interests can be consuming but satisfying. You are more able to focus, concentrate, and prioritise. However, there can also be a rebellious quality to you from May forward. Make important, bold changes, but keep your feet on the ground and avoid rebellious reactions...”

And what to expect on your birthday: “You have a strong sense of purpose and responsibility. You easily feel guilty, and are often found weighing pros and cons, as you are able to see both sides to any situation. While you are sensitive and naturally retiring, you are also very aware of your reputation and image, and will rise to most challenges. Others might not know that you have a competitive streak, and you can be quite stubborn.”

Jonathan Cainer, on his website cainer.com, has this to offer:

“We have been talking this week, about history. Can we trust all that we are told about the way things used to be? Back in the dark days before the Internet, almost everyone relied on word of mouth. In the rare instance where something had been inscribed on a scroll, it was treated as sacrosanct. Yet it is not just the history of the world that may now warrant some revision. You may need to challenge, today, a chain of explanations about events in your own past that you have previously accepted without question. Your 2015 video predictions about your love-life and your financial prospects are ready. There are great things in store for you.”

Gotohoroscope.com supplies this insight into a January 8 baby’s personality:

“People born on the 8th of January are rarely lazy, they tend to be always on the go working towards their latest goal. The astrological planet Saturn rules both your star sign of Capricorn and the exact day you were born. This double Saturn influence gives you your extra strong determination and competiveness. If you have this birthday you are a dependable person who always aims to finish things that you start.

“You are quite good at bouncing back from setbacks and are determined to make your mark in the world and be recognised for something. Your high ambition is coupled with great organisational skills but you are inclined to let work dominate your life. Individuals with a January the eighth birthday usually need to love and be loved to feel complete. Your cautious attitude to romantic involvements may mean that it could take you a while to commit to long term relationships.”

The ANC shares its birthday with the following famous folks:

*Singers Elvis Presley, R Kelly and David Bowie

*North Korean leader Kim Jong-un

*Scientist Stephen Hawking
