Born today, you are no stranger to adversity, yet adversity is not something that ever holds you back. Indeed, it actually motivates you! Like a great many Aquarius natives, you are aggressively forward-moving and forward-thinking, always eager to chart a course that you can follow faithfully, and that others will want to follow as well. You are a born leader, and once you settle into a position that affords you the authority to make the big decisions, others are sure to support you eagerly, confident that your solutions to problems will be not only creative and new, but also very likely permanent.
You are not always able to contain your affections and focus them on only one person. As a result, you are likely to fall in love many times in your life -- and, conversely, others are likely to fall in love with you again and again. This may be a tricky moral path to tread -- one that requires careful thought at all times.
Also born on this date are: Phil Collins, singer-songwriter and musician; Christian Bale, actor; Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dick Martin, actor, director, and comedian; Dorothy Malone, actress; Gene Hackman, actor; Wilmer Valderrama, actor; Dick Cheney, U.S. vice president; Vanessa Redgrave, actress; Brett Butler, comedian and actress; Boris Spassky, chess grandmaster; Charles Dutton, actor.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll enjoy hearing what others have to say about you now much more than being reminded of what they said about you in the past.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll come to an important realization regarding your place among others of high professional status. You have much to be proud of.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- While you're waiting for someone else to come through for you, you can come through for someone else before being asked.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Some bad news may rock you and your community, but you'll know how to rise above it and continue reaching ever higher. Others will follow.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to see what someone else has up his sleeve today, but you'll have to wait until the situation is a little less volatile.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- There are mysterious elements to an otherwise routine day. What you uncover on your own will mean more to you than anyone else.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A look at certain past episodes will clue you in to what others have been talking about lately. It's time to take center stage.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone you know may be engaged in behavior that is questionable if not downright dangerous. What you do about it makes a difference.
