Born today, you are not always as focused as you might be, but you have a way of committing yourself in the moment and reaping the best possible benefits from even the most fleeting opportunities, so that your self-distraction and occasional wayward behavior isn't likely to stand between you and success too often. You are rather adventurous, but more in an emotional or intellectual way than a physical one. Indeed, you will put yourself through the emotional wringer sooner than you will subject yourself to physical rigors or harm. You are destined to do much that is admirable -- and some things that are not.
You may see much of the world in your lifetime, and what you learn from your travels will be put to good use in your work. You like being the center of attention -- but you also know how to make the most of the spotlight. You're not the kind to take without giving.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Taylor, actress; Joanne Woodward, actress; Ralph Nader, activist; John Steinbeck, author; David Sarnoff, radio and television pioneer; Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, poet; Ariel Sharon, former Israeli prime minister.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your prospects are good, but you may be looking too far ahead to see what is right around the corner. At first it seems like a mixed bag.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're sure to think that your ideas are "where it's at" today -- until you come upon one introduced by a rival. Be willing to face facts.
