Born today, you seem to have everything going for you more often than not, yet you are continually battling against an insecure streak that runs deeply through the core of your being. Indeed, it informs almost everything you do in some respect, and it may even be the reason you are compelled to excel! Truly, you have extraordinary talents, but who's to say that talent itself is enough? The fear that nothing you do is good enough keeps you moving ever forward, striving to accomplish more and do better with each successive outing.
What may seem odd is that despite this pervasive aspect of your personality, you are able to behave in an open, honest, unabashed manner in most situations. You aren't the kind to stand on ceremony, and you will often behave inappropriately, simply because you are behaving naturally.
Also born on this date are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer; Lewis Carroll, author; Donna Reed, actress; Mimi Rogers, actress; Mikhail Baryshnikov, dancer and actor; Sir Francis Drake, sea captain and explorer; Troy Donahue, actor; Alan Cumming, actor; Rosamund Pike, actress; Bridget Fonda, actress; John Roberts, Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court; Jerome Kern, composer; James Cromwell, actor.
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.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be able to follow instructions to the letter. Take care that what happens doesn't catch you totally by surprise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may become frustrated by the lack of pertinent information available to you as you carry on your own private investigation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone may ask you for assistance, but that is only a clever dodge. There is something else going on, and you can find out what.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Promises are made, but only you seem to be confident about keeping them. You will learn what motivates others in this situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone in charge may be waiting for you to come through as promised, but he or she is unaware of an obstacle standing in your way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to interrupt your work to come to the aid of someone much younger and less experienced than you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your own personal comfort is likely to be far less important to you than that of someone you have pledged to help.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Pragmatism takes over and guides your decision-making process even though emotional issues are front and center.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone who has pledged loyalty to you in the past is likely to reaffirm that promise in a way that is entirely unexpected today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone may try to hold you accountable for something you have had nothing to do with, but don't get defensive or aggressive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Time is on your side; you can bet that others will learn the truth and shift their critical focus to someone else far more deserving.
