Born today, you have a great many talents that will enable you to achieve success in life, but you may not show the kind of brilliance at an early age that you are likely to demonstrate later on -- meaning, of course, that your ultimate success will come as something of a surprise even to those who know you best. Confidence in your own abilities, and your ability to make the most of a situation, is something you will always have, and it is sure to pave the way for you when things get tough. Indeed, when others would likely give up and head for home, you're to be found charging ahead in the belief that you can do whatever you decide to do -- and so you can.
You have something of a fiery temper, but you frown on any kind of interpersonal fireworks and you will do what you can to avoid a run-in with another. You save your rage for private moments, when you are free to express yourself fully without risking danger to anyone else -- physical or emotional.
Also born on this date are: Faye Dunaway, actress; Albert Schweitzer, theologian; Shannon Lucid, astronaut; William Bendix, actor; Marjoe Gortner, evangelist and actor; L.L. Cool J, rapper and actor.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is the time for you to make a play for something you really want -- even if someone else has "dibs." You can make your mark by day's end.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're watching things from a distance when what you really want is to take part in a much more involved way. You can have your wish.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone is likely to come to the rescue just when you need rescuing the most -- and you won't even have to ask for help. Timing is everything.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Yes, the way you do things is likely to be the object of a good deal of scrutiny -- not because of criticism, but rather admiration.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be doubting yourself at this time, but someone close to you knows just what you're capable of -- and what that's really worth.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's not likely to take you as long as expected to finish the work begun today. You must brook no untimely interruptions, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The position a loved one puts you in today may be the cause of some heated discussion later on -- but recovery can be swift.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're putting someone else's needs ahead of your own -- is that really what you had in mind? You can make adjustments if necessary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have the opportunity to tell a story that means much more to the listener than it does to you -- but you know that.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're more interested in where you rank in the scheme of things today than in what contribution you really make.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're after something that others think is well beyond your reach, but you have a secret that can help you attain it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take care that you don't let frustration over a minor incident grow into something that cannot be easily controlled. Maintain perspective.
