Born today, you put your heart into everything you do, and you will stick with a thing until hell freezes over -- or until you acknowledge to yourself that there is virtually no gain to be had by sticking with it. You have a strong will, and you will not change course simply to please others; you will, however, change quickly and often if you have not yet found what pleases you and gives you true professional or personal contentment. For this reason, it may be difficult for you to have one single career; you may actually have several -- even simultaneously!
Those around you are not always going to like what you say or do -- and that's all right with you! Indeed, there are those who like you very much, and those who do not like you at all. Rare indeed is that person who does not harbor some strong feeling about you one way or the other.
Also born on this date are: Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, actress; Princess Caroline of Monaco; Rutger Hauer, actor; Chita Rivera, actress, dancer, singer; Ernie Kovacs, comedian; Edouard Manet, painter; John Hancock, patriot.
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 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be willing to go the distance today. Any time you do not follow through, you are threatening your own reputation, and another's as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others may laugh at what you have to offer, but you know that your ideas are current and valuable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may want something from a certain someone today that he or she is at first unwilling or unable to give. All that will change soon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be willing to put more on the line than you have in the past; others are willing to support you only if you demonstrate confidence.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't make the mistake of thinking that you are "entitled" today; take what comes, and be grateful that you are your current position.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are feeling somewhat frisky today, and you must be sure that your behavior, while unusual, doesn't become off-putting or unacceptable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will have to work hard today to reach your goals; the brass ring may be out of reach for quite a while, but you mustn't give up hope.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You aren't the ranking expert today, and you must be willing to accept that fact. Indeed, you can learn a lot from an elder.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be eager to have more fun than usual today, but you mustn't promote behavior that is unacceptable to the boss.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've narrowed down a certain issue to its most basic components, and now you should be able to discuss it in some detail.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may want to promote an idea that is considered quite unconventional by some -- but others think that the time is just about right.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- One good turn deserves another today -- and after dark you're likely to be surprised by someone who is returning a special favor.
