Born today, you know how to say and do things in a way that maximizes the effect of your words and actions. In the process, you guarantee that they will be long remembered. In fact, your greatest single ambition is to be remembered -- but you must do your best to be remembered for the right things! You don't want to find yourself going down in history for doing or saying anything that you will regret. You want to be famous, not infamous, after all! You are able to get along with all manner of individuals, no matter how different they may be -- from you, or from each other.
You can be rather clumsy at times, but the way you put your foot in your mouth is rather charming and endearing. Still, there may be a few cases when you wish you hadn't said anything at all. In fact, this may be a good lesson to learn now and then!
Also born on this date are: Ellen Degeneres, comedian and TV host; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Eddie Van Halen, musician and songwriter; Paul Newman, actor; Anita Baker, singer-songwriter; Douglas MacArthur, military leader; Scott Glenn, actor; Gene Siskel, film critic; Christopher Hampton, playwright and screenwriter; Jules Feiffer, cartoonist and 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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to check your schedule very carefully to make sure you don't miss something that could come back to haunt you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to give someone precisely what he or she has been asking for -- with no "interpretation" on your part.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep your wits about you even as you forge ahead into a highly emotional situation. Personal issues must be addressed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be trying to figure out how to do the impossible, but a rival is very close to doing precisely that. It may be time to concede -- for now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep yourself safe from external forces that are working against you. It may not be the best day for traveling far from home.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll receive a piece of news that you can put to good use almost immediately. Someone has wronged you, but it's not worth retaliating.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can turn the other cheek and ensure that things do not escalate past the point of no return.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are in the mood to explore something new and perhaps even dangerous. Someone who has been there before can guide you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be attracted to people and events that are somehow veiled, disguised, or foggy. Use care when navigating this territory.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be able to hide your feelings in all situations -- nor should you. Be sure to express yourself delicately, however.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must guard against going too fast, as you will be unable to make the best decisions when consumed with the need for speed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find it necessary to double back and retrieve something that you have lost along the way.
