Born today, you are one of the most unusual individuals born under your sign, and your accomplishments in life are sure to be unique and memorable. You don't always follow the rules, which is one thing that sets you apart; even as a youth, you could be found doing things in ways that seemed to flout authority but could not be called outright "wrong." That is one of the things you do well -- walk the fine line between what is acceptable and what is not -- and it is one of the things that is sure to attract attention again and again. Indeed, attention itself is something that you will learn to use to your advantage -- and why not, since you are bound to attract plenty of it throughout your lifetime!
You do not always like to come clean and admit what you have done. This is sure to cause a good deal of conflict in your life. Indeed, there will be times when your sheer stubbornness will make situations far worse than they actually are -- at least until everything blows over as if by magic.
Also born on this date are: Betsy Ross, seamstress; Verne Troyer, actor; Xavier Cugat, bandleader; J.D. Salinger, author; Cat Cora, celebrity chef; J. Edgar Hoover, FBI director; Frank Langella, 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.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to meet in person rather than attempt negotiations over the phone or other electronic communications device.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- How you label things will make all the difference, especially if you're getting ready to present your ideas to those in charge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be looking at the road ahead through unusually tinted glasses. As a result, you may not be seeing things as they really are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is the time to take the gloves off; you mean business, and you're not going to settle for anything but total victory.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to jump to conclusions. Take the time to research things fully so that you can be familiar with the facts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel as though you're straying from your chosen path, but this is the result of a different kind of separation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your progress may be slowed, but no one else but you is at fault -- though "fault" itself may be too strong a word.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself commenting on another's work in terms that you do not usually use in such situations. Much more is unusual, too!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are striving for something that others have found elusive, but with each passing hour, you'll find yourself closer and closer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not feel quite right about telling others what you know before you have checked with those more personally involved.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The earlier the better, as far as you are concerned -- and this holds true in work, play, recreation and romance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to strike while the iron is hot. Any delay is likely to set you back -- perhaps months -- and you cannot afford that!
