Born today, you have what it takes to attract a great deal of attention throughout your lifetime, but it is never enough for you just to be in the spotlight. Rather, you want to use the opportunity to accomplish great things -- for you would rather be remembered for what you do than simply for who you are. You have a keen interest in the world around you, and you are a natural student of human nature; you're not likely to let something happen around you without studying it and learning as much as you can about the very real human implications surrounding the event.
You have a kind of spellbinding attraction to members of the opposite sex -- and, indeed, you may actually break more hearts than most when you finally settle down with that one special someone. And yes, despite the "wild" ways indulged in during your youth, you are destined to settle down.
Also born on this date are: Nicolas Cage, actor; Katie Couric, news anchor; David Caruso, actor; Kenny Loggins, singer and songwriter; Butterfly McQueen, actress; William Peter Blatty, author; Jean-Pierre Rampal, flutist; Charles Addams, cartoonist; Millard Fillmore, U.S. president.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The curtain is up earlier than usual today, and you'll be "on" most of the time, playing a pivotal role that affects others deeply.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be in the mood to do things more quickly than usual today, but you must take care that you do not make any careless mistakes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll receive instructions today that allow you to head off in a new direction when the time comes, equipped with knowledge and confidence.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not the kind to enjoy forced social interaction, but today you had better be ready to put on a brave face!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can only hope that others are on the same page with you, because you'll have little proof of that until it may be too late.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have a way with words, and the ability to entertain while imparting important information. Others can surely benefit today!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may want to try something new and different today, but first you would be wise to get back to the basics of what you know.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good day to bend the rules just a bit; you can maximize your own gains today, but you mustn't risk your solid reputation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be feeling as energetic and motivated as usual, but you can still get plenty done if you pace yourself and get lots of rest.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today, knowing when to put an end to something is just as important -- if not more so -- than knowing when to get started.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is not the time to carry things too far; know when enough is enough, and listen to those who give you proper cues.
