Born today, you are one of the most intense individuals born under your sign, yet the current that runs most strongly within your soul is one that flows inward, not outward, with the result that many may not be fully aware of just how much is percolating beneath the surface. You take things very seriously, which is not to say that you are unable to laugh at them! On the contrary, you are able to feel strongly about a thing, and laugh and cry in turns until you are tapped out and must turn your attention to something else. You have deep desires, and you are fueled by a certain kind of ambition that you can claim is yours alone.
You are multitalented, surely, but you are not the kind to flaunt your abilities. Rather, you will often go about your business in a way that is overlooked by the world around you -- until, of course, you unveil the fruits of your labors and win the praise, admiration and rewards that are yours by rights.
Also born on this date are: Steve Perry, singer; Guy Fieri, television host and restaurateur; Diane Lane, actress; Linda Blair, actress; John Hurt, actor; Steven Adler, drummer; Bill Bixby, actor; Gabriel Macht, actor; Sir Francis Bacon, author and philosopher; Sir Walter Raleigh, explorer and soldier; Piper Laurie, actress; Ann Sothern, actress; D.W. Griffith, director; August Strindberg, playwright.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be under the mistaken notion that you are being pulled away from that which is most important to you. Think again.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You had best reach an accord with a rival, even if it is temporary. Working together in this way leads to something positive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a competitor may be following different sets of rules. See if you can't come to some sort of agreement about protocol.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you do for someone else is likely to take more out of you than you have anticipated. You'll need more time to recover.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be startled by someone's actions, which do not fit in with your own notion of propriety.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your point of view may bring you into conflict with someone who maintains an entirely different perspective -- and for good reason.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You aren't likely to react favorably to any kind of ambiguities. You want things to be either one thing or another, period.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A smile can open doors for you. Seek out those who react favorably to your words and actions. Focus on maintaining momentum.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Something that has been developing for quite some time is likely to come to fruition today -- perhaps in a surprising way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've gotten involved in a competitive endeavor, and things are likely to heat up as you and a rival pursue the same personal goal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you want may not be available to you just yet, so you'll have to employ not only patience, but also some imaginative substitution!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are likely to be welcomed back into the fold -- provided, of course, it is something that you truly want.
