Born today, you know how to capture the imaginations of those around you, and inspire them to achieve great things. This doesn't mean, of course, that you will not achieve greatness yourself -- on the contrary, you have what it takes to reach the highest pinnacle of personal success, but it is strangely less important to you, in the long run, than the impact you know you have on others. To do something by yourself may reap rewards, but to do something in tandem with another can be truly rewarding -- in a deeply personal way that cannot be challenged by any monetary gains. You are, at heart, a social being.
You have a way with words, and you are likely to be called upon again and again to say what someone else doesn't know how to express -- and you're likely to do it before ever-larger audiences. Indeed, public speaking may well be an important part of your professional life.
Also born on this date are: Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge; Dave Matthews, singer and musician; Crystal Gayle, singer; Joan Baez, singer and activist; Susannah York, actress; Bob Denver, actor; Richard Nixon, U.S. president; Gracie Fields, singer and actress.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have trouble seeing something that is lying directly in front of you today; fortunately, the danger level is quite low.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must be willing to share your feelings openly with someone whom you are eager to get to know better -- and quickly, too!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be a little too cocky for your own good at this time. A little confidence is healthy -- but you're overdoing it, surely!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may require assistance today when it comes to doing something that falls squarely outside your comfort zone. All you have to do is ask!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others may think you are being unusually eccentric at this time, but you're simply feeling energetic, motivated and "on fire"!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are not far from the one you truly love, and all you have to do is reach out for a confirmation that the feeling is mutual.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have been complaining about things happening to you of late that are actually very much your fault -- or responsibility, anyway.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are waiting for someone else to step up and do what you very much want to avoid doing -- but it may not pan out that way today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Watch your attitude today; you don't want to behave in a way that can turn someone against you, even temporarily.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't have to be too specific at this time, but it's essential today that you get a good look at the big picture.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be sure that you don't lure someone into dangerous territory inadvertently or entirely by mistake. Use all necessary caution.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to have to spend time correcting any errors made by others today before you start dedicating time to your own efforts.
