Born today, you know how to inspire others. This is largely because you are, yourself, inspired by so much around you -- indeed, by the world itself and the people in it. You are one of the most joyous, positive and forward-thinking individuals born under your sign. You rarely if ever fall victim to the kind of frustration or disappointment that plagues others, and you almost always seem to have something up your sleeve that keeps you engaged, active and moving ahead. You have what it takes to carry great burdens, also, and for this reason you are a favorite among those who have burdens to bear.
You have the makings of a fine teacher; you seem to know just what to do in any situation to engage those around you and have them working to fulfill their potential. Your own potential is quite high, of course, but you measure your success, often, by the success of others.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer and songwriter; Nicolas Sarkozy, French president; Alan Alda, actor; Jackson Pollock, painter; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 29

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You should be able to maintain a lighthearted, positive attitude throughout the day, no matter what obstacles you encounter.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Getting things done today is simply a matter of priorities. If you don't know what is most important, you'll be in a muddle most of the day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be the victim of a kind of deception that is almost impossible to uncover until it is too late -- but you should be able to recover.
