Born today, you have many talents, but one in particular is likely to shine more brightly than any other -- and at an early age, too. The problem, however, is that you are likely to have a lifelong "love-hate" relationship with this once particular ability, for though it is something that you do better, perhaps, than anyone else, it is not something that you always enjoy doing! This is sure to be a problem you must address again and again throughout your lifetime if you are to enjoy the success that this talent can bring you.
You never do anything in a derivative or copycat fashion; you are original in thought and action, and you are sure to attract attention that is both admiring and critical. What is most important to you, of course, is that you are true to yourself -- even if it means making difficult sacrifices now and then.
Also born on this date are: Anita Baker, singer; Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, actress, talk-show host; Angela Davis, activist; Gene Siskel, film critic; Eddie Van Halen, musician; Paul Newman, actor; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Douglas MacArthur, U.S. military leader.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A trip down memory lane is likely to reignite a certain passion today. You'll be compelled to pursue an old goal all over again.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to show another what you're really made of -- and you can do it in a friendly way, without being aggressive or defensive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You know what someone else is talking about, but you don't necessarily want to engage in conversation on this potentially uncomfortable topic.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find yourself in a position of some authority today, with the expected result that some will listen to you and others will criticize!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may want to get in touch with a certain friend or loved one today to get his or her opinion of what you're currently planning.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day for you to remain true to the kind of routine you have carefully built for yourself. Straying from the plan can be dangerous.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to get in touch with someone who is not easy to track down -- but you have a surprisingly effective method up your sleeve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must be patient and let things transpire they way they will; any attempt to force something into place will only backfire on you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will have to focus not only on the central issue today, but on those peripheral issues that pop up as the day progresses.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you do on your own today will give you a sense of accomplishment and pride the likes of which cannot be duplicated any other way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Do you have what it takes to build on someone else's idea and yet remain true to his or her intentions? It's a matter of integrity, of course.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're facing a difficult job today, but you can trust in your own experience and skill. Once or twice you may have to improvise.
