Born today, you often wonder why other people seem to find you so fascinating, and you often wish that you were truly as interesting as people think you are. Of course, this is merely a matter of personal perception. It is virtually impossible for you to be as taken with yourself as others are with you -- and it would be quite a problem if you were, for you would no doubt come off as intolerably self-centered and vain! No, you look upon yourself honestly, seeing both the strengths and weaknesses, the beauty and the blemishes -- and you consider yourself quite ordinary, in fact.
You observe human nature with keen interest, and like so many other Capricorn natives, it is in your interactions with others that you find true contentment. There is something about other people that you find endlessly fascinating.
Also born on this date are: Amanda Peet, actress; Mary J. Blige, singer; Naomi Judd, singer; Rod Taylor, actor; Grant Tinker, network president; Alexander Hamilton, patriot and statesman.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What have you got that someone else hasn't? This is the question that will be asked by many today, since you are shining so brightly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take care that you don't judge something so quickly today that you are unable to see its true value. A second or third look is in order.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are eager to solve a problem that has been tormenting you for quite some time. The key lies in your unique perspective.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A true friend will stand by you today even though you are going through something quite personal that you cannot adequately explain.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The probability that you will be able to do something entirely new today is low -- but you can put your unique stamp on something more traditional.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find that someone you have mistrusted in the past is ready to step up and give you precisely what you need at this time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not be presenting things in the best possible light, which would explain why you're not getting the support you anticipated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you most want may be beyond your reach today -- or simply beyond your means. You can surely make do with your second or third choice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The path ahead of you today may not be as straight and narrow as you had hoped, so you'll have to be prepared for some tough navigation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may see things very differently today, which is sure to separate you from the crowd for a time. You can weather such solitude.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not recognize any approaching dangers today until they are almost upon you -- but you can act fast and avoid lasting harm.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have trouble keeping up with someone who is eager to have you match him or her step-for-step. You want to go at your own pace.
