Born today, you are a diligent, dedicated, ambitious, hardworking individual with so many aspirations that, when young, you may have trouble knowing just where to start. It is likely, however, that fate will step in at just the right moment and point you in a direction that can provide you with both opportunity and achievement. You are a highly creative individual; while you do embrace many traditional ideals, the truth is that you will always do things in a way that is uniquely your own, which usually brings a healthy dose of novelty to your day. You can combine the old and the new in many successful ways.
You are quick to make friends, and once someone has teamed up with you, he or she is likely to go the distance with you, come what may. Very few ever find themselves turning away from you -- personally or professionally. You are likely to have few enemies to speak of -- if any at all.
Also born on this date are: Dolly Parton, singer; Jean Stapleton, actress; Janis Joplin, singer; Shelley Fabares, actress; Paula Deen, chef; Edgar Allan Poe, author; Robert E. Lee, general; Katey Sagal, actress; Robert Palmer, singer-songwriter; Paul Cezanne, painter; Michael Crawford, actor and singer; Junior Seau, football player.

MONDAY, JANUARY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There's no reason to stop until you reach your destination. Once you get there, you will have to jump through a few hoops.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you are looking for may be quite near, but you'll have to get past one or two major obstacles before claiming it as your own.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Only by drilling your memory will you learn the facts and figures that are essential to a current endeavor. Take all the time you need.
