Born today, you have a way with words. You aren't the kind to pass up an opportunity to communicate with others about virtually anything -- even topics that are considered controversial or forbidden. You are a deeply caring individual, and when you take up a cause, you are sure to do all you can to make progress and prevail. You will use your verbal talents in every way possible. It is said that you can persuade almost anyone to do almost anything. This is true; there are times, in fact, when you may actually be able to persuade yourself to do things you do not wish to do!
You may have inherited a great many interests and talents from your forebears, but you are likely to make more out of them than anyone in your family ever has before. This is likely to be the result of both opportunity and the sheer force of your will. Once you decide to do something, it is all but done!
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer-songwriter; Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Kathryn Morris, actress; Frank Darabont, director.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is the time for you to explore your options without limiting yourself because of financial concerns. Why not dream a little?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are ready to take on more than you had anticipated, but you shouldn't have to do anything that you are not trained to do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Distractions are everywhere, but you know how to keep yourself focused on the primary tasks you have undertaken. Do so!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll enjoy seeing what is available to you -- or, rather, what would be if you were in the market.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to show someone in charge what you are capable of doing. You'll have the chance to do just that -- and more.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Taking care of yourself demands more than what you have been doing lately. You'll want to tend to certain emotional needs today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've been laboring under the mistaken impression that you are incapable of competing at a higher level. You can take it all up a notch.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not understand why someone else is making certain demands of you, but you are able to satisfy almost all of them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It may be time for you to explore avenues open to you farther afield than you have been before. A certain daring is required, of course.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A good friend becomes more than that by day's end, as you work together to establish yourselves as capable in a new partnership.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't have more to do than scheduled, but you may have less time to do it in than expected. You can make it all work out, however.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It shouldn't take you long to fulfill a certain commitment, leaving you with ample time to tend to some personal pleasures.
