Born today, you are often better at coming up with a new and exciting concept than you are at following through on bringing that concept to life. You must always be sure to surround yourself, at home and at the workplace, with those who are inspired by your ideas and who can take up the slack and do what is necessary to bring them to fruition. Obviously, teamwork will be important to you throughout your lifetime, and you have what it takes to be an inspirational leader. However, when you are not in charge, you can become rather frustrated and, at times, difficult to live with! Those who don't know you well may find this surprising.
You are never changed by success -- and you're likely to enjoy a great deal of it in your lifetime. You maintain a steady, practical outlook, despite your vivid imagination, and you understand that being genuine is far more important than any tangible rewards that your work can offer.
Also born on this date are: Dyan Cannon, actress; Deana Carter, singer; Julia Ormond, actress; Michael Stipe, singer; Louis Braille, inventor of the Braille alphabet.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Those around you are waiting for you to "do your thing" -- and indeed, you'll have a chance to prove why you have the reputation you do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time to confuse the serious issues with those that can be laughed off. Today you'll be required to step up in a new way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Those things that don't seem to go together are likely to have more in common today than you think. Investigate further if you're in the dark.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you've been asked to do today may require more preparation than you are used to -- but you can't afford to do this only halfway.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The time has come for you to be honest about a certain strategy that you truly believe in, but that doesn't yield the desired results.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your feelings, and the practical issues you have to face today, may not mix. Keep things aboveboard and don't take them personally.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to pursue those things that speak to you on a personal level today. Avoid anything that requires you to wing it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can't afford to make things up today; you must stick to what you know, and be sure to engage those with whom you have things in common.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to get in touch with someone who can bring you up to speed as fast as possible so that you can start a new job on a high note.
