Born today, you can be rather confrontational, but this has more to do with your boundless energy than with any aggressive tendencies. Indeed, your behavior can be characterized more as "in your face" than as anything malicious or belligerent; you're not a fighter, but rather an enthusiastic proponent of ideas that excite you. For that reason, you can be a bit much for those who like a more relaxed, laid-back, easygoing approach. You can become quite defensive when someone you love is in danger, and you will do all you can to see that he or she is protected.
You are likely to choose a rather conventional, even traditional career path, but the way you go about it is likely to be unique. You recognize the importance of knowing what has gone before, and you will use that knowledge to forge your own inimitable style.
Also born on this date are: David Bowie, singer, musician, actor; Stephen Hawking, astro-physicist and author; Yvette Mimieux, actress; Bob Eubanks, disk jockey and game-show host; Elvis Presley, singer; Ron Moody, actor; Larry Storch, actor; Jose Ferrer, actor; James Longstreet, Confederate military leader.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're being tempted by someone who doesn't appreciate the rules that you have pledged to follow. You needn't bend them for anyone!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to receive criticism for trying to do too much on your own at this time, but most critics are envious of your daring.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to shake it up a bit and do those things that others are certain you would never do. Danger to your reputation is minimal.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The issue of survival may be far more real at this time than you had originally supposed -- if not literally, then symbolically.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know what you are doing, and you know how to get others to follow you faithfully. You'll need their help to bring a current project home!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not yet willing to say goodbye to something that you feel you have only just begun exploring -- but too many dangers surround you now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not know just what direction is best for you today, but once you choose one, you'll soon discover if you were correct.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A new acquaintance is interested in learning a great deal more about you than can be gleaned from a first meeting. Are you ready for this?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be quite surprised today when a friend heads off on his own, without seeking your advice or asking for you to tag along.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to encounter someone today who challenges you in a manner that is unexpected -- and perhaps quite unconventional.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be willing to talk about the difficult things with a loved one today, or the problem you seek to solve will persist.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Don't give yourself too much time to get a certain task done, because it may not be yours to grant. The clock ticks at its own pace!
