Hello January mamas! We have some good news for you - babies born in January are more likely to become rich and famous.
Research has found that January babies have some unique and lucky qualities that mean they may be in for a very prosperous life.
Generally, it's said that January and February are the right months to be born if you want to be famous since those months correlate with creativity and imaginative problem-solving.
Babies born in January more likely to become rich and famous
According to a study from Australia, there were 33% more January babies in the Australian Football League than athletes born in other months.
Published in Science Daily, co-author Adrian Barnett from Queensland University explained his theory on why this is the case;
"If you were born in January, you have almost 12 months' growth ahead of your classmates born late in the year."
But becoming a sports star isn't the only way January babies attract fame.
Another study published in the Journal of Social Sciences found a disproportionate number of celebrities claim the Aquarius astrological sign - meaning they were born between January 20 and February 18.
Babies born in January also have one of the luckiest birthstones.
Garnet gemstones are associated with peace, prosperity and good health.
Some say garnet even has the power to give the wearer eternal happiness, health and wealth!
It's not only birth months that can predict things for your baby.
What your birth season says about you
Birth seasons can also tell us a lot, according to many different studies.
March, April and May babies score high on the hyperthymia scale. Hyperthymia is general optimism or the ability to see every glass half empty as half full. But that comes at a price: spring babies are also more susceptible to the precise opposite of hyperthymia: clinical depression. Ground zero for the condition — according to a massive study of 58,000 subjects in the UK in 2012 — is among people born in May. November babies have the lowest depression rates.
Summer babies have some of the same hyperthymic characteristics as spring babies, but that can be offset by cyclothymia — rapid cycling between high and low moods. Still, that’s probably not a warning sign of bipolar disorder; bipolar diagnoses are lowest among babies born in August.
Maybe it's because the long nights and seasonal illness of winter have not yet descended, but people born in fall not only enjoy low levels of depression, but are similarly less likely to develop bipolar disorder. One caveat; autumn-born babies have a tendency to irritability.
Among the challenges facing people with winter birthdates are higher levels of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, SAD and depression. There are a few compensations; winter babies are less irritable than those born in fall.
