Born today, you are able to work very hard morning, noon and night -- and on into the following morning if circumstances require it! You have been endowed with tremendous staying power, and you can stick with a thing until it has been accomplished -- or until you have simply outlasted everyone else, and there is no one else left to work with or compete against. You are highly expressive; you know how to put your thoughts into words in such a way that others are always willing to listen to what you have to say. You are very interested in what makes people tick, and while you may not always understand another's motives, you are often driven to learn more about those motives -- and your own.
You will be faced with one or two key choices in life that will make all the difference for you, both professionally and personally. It is essential, however, that you recognize those choices when they come to you. Miss one -- or both -- and they're not likely to come to you again.
Also born on this date are: Betty White, actress; Jim Carrey, actor and comedian; Muhammad Ali, boxer; Michelle Obama, U.S. first lady; Andy Kaufman, comedian; Zooey Deschanel, actress; Steve Harvey, comedian; James Earl Jones, actor; Kid Rock, singer; Maury Povich, talk show host; Eartha Kitt, singer and actress; Al Capone, gangster; Shari Lewis, puppeteer; Vidal Sassoon, hair stylist; Susanna Hoffs, singer; Anne Bronte, novelist and poet; Mack Sennett, director.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your ability to see things the way they are will surely serve you well -- and those around you, also. Many will show their gratitude.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be wondering where the sparks are, but you'll also realize that much has changed in the past year. Something new beckons.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you do today will only be the beginning; look farther down the road, and you'll see where you are going. You'll lead others there, as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not understand exactly what someone else is trying to tell you. Instead of turning away, work harder to maintain contact.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You only have to do things one at a time in order to stay on schedule, and you can surely do that. No one expects miracles.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've given others a great deal to think about lately. It is now your turn to ponder a few big questions that have no easy answers.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're in for something quite spectacular -- if you are willing to sit patiently and wait for just the right moment to come.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Giving someone a hand shouldn't be difficult, but getting from here to there may be more problematic than expected.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The success of much that is going on depends on your own personal power as much as anything else -- and it running high at this time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to receive positive feedback, but you may not be completely satisfied. You were looking for more.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're ready to undertake something a little more serious than what you've engaged in before. You have what it takes.
