Born today, you are likely to lead a life that others find quite fascinating. Indeed, it very well may be! You aren't likely to follow a routine path. The one you take may lead you through a great many ups and downs, ins and outs, successes and failures, but you have what it takes to prevail, even when the going gets very tough, indeed. You aren't likely to come into your own until relatively late, but that simply means that your golden years can be just that: golden! Your greatest achievements and triumphs are likely to be scored when you are well into your maturity, at a time when you can most enjoy and appreciate them.
You may go through one or two periods in your life when you are wracked by uncertainty and confusion, but once these pass, you will enter a long phase marked by confidence and accomplishment. When you realize that most things are simpler than you have been making them, your life will be your own to live and enjoy.
Also born on this date are: Sir Anthony Hopkins, actor; Donna Summer, singer; John Denver, singer; Val Kilmer, actor; Sir Ben Kingsley, actor; Bebe Neuwirth, actress; Henri Matisse, painter; Simon Wiesenthal, Holocaust survivor; Tim Matheson, actor; George C. Marshall, U.S. Army chief of staff, statesman.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be on the same page as one who is considered an expert, but your own unique experiences give you an invaluable perspective.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your reaction to an unexpected event has you wondering what's next. The answer comes at an unusual time -- and in an unusual fashion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The difference between "amateur" and "professional" becomes crystal clear to you. What seems to be one is actually the other.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It may be time to consider doing something you've actively avoided. An unusual course of action pays off in more than one significant way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll take very seriously your responsibility for another's well-being, but you can't be there every hour of every day. Know your limits.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have the power to make something special happen for someone in your inner circle. You may want to spend some time alone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've been making plans, and today's the day to put them into motion. Some say you're only dreaming, but your dreams can amount to much.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Set limits for yourself today, and stick to them. Don't be tempted to do anything that you know you'll regret tomorrow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have some extra time on your hands, but you should be able to fill it with activities that add meaning to the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be responsible for more than usual. Make time for some fun; a few friends have something special in store.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The obvious is worth a close look. What you discover beneath the surface is likely to have lasting meaning for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't want to pass the buck today; take responsibility where you find it, and be sure that others understand what you're about.
