Born today, you don't always know the difference between a calculated risk and something that is just downright dangerous. At times, you may be tempted to put yourself and those around you in danger needlessly, in order to exploit a situation that may bring you fleeting profit or enjoyment. You would be wise to take greater care, especially where others are concerned! Though you will, when young, feel invulnerable, later in life you will be reminded again and again of the price you may pay for your foolhardy ways. Perhaps you will learn that safety and circumspection are, at times, your best bet.
You don't always come up with the most doable ideas, but they are always exciting and worth exploring. Others are quick to rally around you when you come up with any kind of plan. They know that there will always be plenty of ways for everyone to contribute to the overall success of your plan.
Also born on this date are: Mary J. Blige, singer; Alexander Hamilton, statesman; Naomi Judd, singer-songwriter; Amanda Peet, actress; Rod Taylor, actor; William James, author and educator; Joel Zwick, TV and film director; Grant Tinker, TV network chairman; David Wolper, film and TV producer.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll receive a proposition that raises eyebrows, but things really are not as provocative as they may seem.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to delay making a firm decision. Once it is made, it can lead to progress that is quick and profitable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have much to do, but some of it may have to wait if the unexpected comes upon you -- and that is likely during afternoon hours.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The clock mustn't be allowed to dictate your decision-making process, though it may otherwise require a fast working pace.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself competing with someone who thinks he or she knows you better than you know yourself. Is this a real risk?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Quick changes are likely -- though some personal things can stay constant if you are vigilant. Don't let someone else call all the shots.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Demands made of you are entirely reasonable, but you may think that someone is trying to take advantage. It's a matter of perspective.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You have the chance to show a competitor what you're made of. Seek the outlet for your talents that is least limited.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are in the mood for a quick fix, but you know as well as anyone that in reality you must get things done the slow way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can set things up in a way that almost guarantees success for everyone under your care today. Some things have greater significance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A little chaos may not be such a bad thing, particularly if it forces you to impose a little order on the things you can control.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Teamwork is the issue today. Can you get everyone working together toward a common goal? And is that goal right for everyone?
