Born today, you are an imaginative individual, and there may be those who think you are disconnected from reality as a result. The truth, of course, is that you balance your creativity with a rare kind of pragmatism. You are able to dream big dreams even in the face of realities that would overcome other individuals. Even so, to you, those realities are merely inconvenient obstacles to be surmounted with a little thought, planning and effort. You will do anything to explore what lies ahead of you, even if it is part of a future that you cannot clearly see. Indeed, you are quite adept at taking that proverbial "stab in the dark" and making it pay off handsomely!
You enjoy being noticed, but you do not have to be the center of attention. Indeed, you can be quite happy to be ignored by nearly everyone around you, provided one special someone has you in his or her sights -- and it doesn't matter whether it is someone you know well or have yet to meet.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Trainor, actor; Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton, singer; Geena Davis, actress; Mac Davis, actor and singer; Hakeem Olajuwon, basketball player; Jack Nicklaus, golfer; Stonewall Jackson, military leader; Benny Hill, comedian; Billy Ocean, singer; Placido Domingo, operatic tenor; Wolfman Jack, disk jockey; Robby Benson, actor; Telly Savalas, actor; Brandon Crawford, baseball player; Christian Dior, fashion designer; King Charles V of France; Ethan Allen, military leader.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a great deal to catch up with at this time, and your priorities are clear. Don't let yourself be distracted by fleeting pleasures.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't let yourself get carried away with an activity that provides you nothing more than a temporary rush. Seek lasting pleasures.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is no time to focus on those things about which you have regrets, large or small. Try to focus on the positive, no matter what comes your way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can put yourself in a better position simply by stating what is, to you, quite obvious. Others don't have your unique perspective.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to keep close track of all the money that comes in and goes out. Even that loose change can make a difference at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A journey of discovery is likely to begin, and where it will take you may be anyone's guess. Watch for signs along the way.
