Born today, you are a rather poetic individual -- but you may not know it, or at least you may not be fully aware of the passions that fuel that side of your nature, or the potential that it has to bring you almost everything you really want in life. What you do know is that you can be unusually sensitive at times. You feel things quite deeply; you register even the seemingly insignificant things in the most significant of ways, and you are able to find tremendous meaning in that which is overlooked by others. You laugh easily, and you can laugh at almost anything. You cry at the drop of a hat, and there is no telling what you may cry about next. You seem to feel the pulse of the world around you, and you respond accordingly.
You may be the kind to overreact to your own nature by trying to be what you are not. As a result, you may sometimes seem to be hard, impenetrable, implacable and overly businesslike. But this is only a mask; you simply don't always want people to see beneath the surface and know what you are really thinking or feeling.
Also born on this date are: Diane Keaton, actress; Suzy Amis, actress; Pamela Sue Martin, actress; Jeane Dixon, psychic; Marilyn Manson, singer-songwriter; Juan Carlos I, king of Spain; Walter Mondale, politician; Zebulon Pike, explorer.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If it appears to you that things are out of whack, you'll want to investigate further. Certain rhythms may prove misleading.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager to hear if your work has won the praise of those who are usually quite critical of you. Recent changes have proven effective.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you are doing to avoid getting more deeply involved in a personal tangle is paying off, but do you really want to keep your distance?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be expecting things to develop quickly, yet the pace is likely to increase hour by hour until you cannot help but notice.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to work hard to meet a certain deadline, but only because recent commitments elsewhere have altered your timeline.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not happy with the way things are going, but you know that the way they were in the past didn't suit you either. Consider options.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though you have been trapped by circumstances, but there was something you could have done, and you know it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to reinforce what you are doing so that everyone is clear about your motives and methods.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Simpler is better. You don't want to make things so complicated that it becomes impossible to communicate effectively.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have some trouble sorting through your own emotions. Perhaps you're overreacting to something that was inevitable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A casual approach proves best, especially late in the day when reports are coming in about the results and impact of your efforts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can prove that you are after the same thing as a rival. As a result, you may be able to bury the hatchet before the day is out.
