Born today, you are a hard working, forward-thinking, visionary individual for whom the here and now is something that can be improved upon in dramatic fashion, day after day. You're determined to make an impact as one who contributes to this improvement in no uncertain terms, taking advantage of your own unique talents and doing things in a way that is uniquely your own. You are no copycat, but you prefer instead to leave your own footprints along a trail that has never been explored before. Although you know there is a greater chance of failure doing things this way, it is the only way you know how to do them!
You can be an instrument of good, or an instrument of bad -- a promoter of light or of dark. The decision, of course, is entirely up to you, but know this: You are never likely to find yourself in a position that makes it impossible to change your mind, reverse course and do things a different way.
Also born on this date are: Elvis Presley, singer-songwriter and musician; Stephen Hawking, physicist; David Bowie, singer and actor; Kim Jong-Un, politician; Bob Eubanks, game show host; Yvette Mimieux, actress; Larry Storch, actor; Ron Moody, actor; Jose Ferrer, actor; James Longstreet, Confederate general; Bill Graham, music promoter.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't feel as though you have to smooth the way for someone whose approach is more aggressive than your own. Focus on your own needs.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're going to have to make room for others throughout your day, literally and figuratively. Much depends on a gracious state of mind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things are likely to get quite busy during the first part of the day, and the momentum will have to be maintained for quite some time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be feeling threatened somehow by the development of a situation that was not of your making. Avoid becoming too defensive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Communication is the key. Much depends on your ability to answer questions simply and directly. Don't let yourself be distracted.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not doing anything at this time that you were not in some way meant to do -- or are you? Only you can judge, but do so honestly!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A certain sacrifice may be required of you, but you'll be ready to make it willingly when the time comes.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Routine provides you with a certain comfort. When the unusual presents itself, you may find your stress level rising considerably.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You should be able to get things done according to schedule, but tending to an unexpected personal need may delay you just a bit.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to break a rule or two in order to have things as you want them. Don't tell anyone, or everyone will want to do the same!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will impress those around you with your independent spirit, but at certain points, you'll want to do what you are told!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to see some improvement in your own personal situation and in the situations governing those around you. Make it happen!
