Born today, you are a natural trailblazer, never content with following the same path for too long, and always willing to venture into uncharted territory to see what may lurk there -- and to see what opportunities you may discover for yourself and for others. You are never completely self-serving in your desire for novelty. Indeed, you often take the lead and charge into new realms with the specific intent of uncovering what waits there for all who choose to follow -- though it is clearly understood that you will win the recognition you deserve for being first! While you are not always competitive in the most traditional sense, you are driven to do things that others have not done -- or cannot do.
You enjoy a rich and varied social life, yet you enjoy your privacy as well -- and the balance between the two may be difficult to strike. Still, you are never going to sacrifice one for the other, so a balance it is, no matter how difficult it may be or how long it may take to achieve it.
Also born on this date are: Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, actress and television host; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Eddie Van Halen, musician and songwriter; Paul Newman, actor; Anita Baker, singer; Douglas MacArthur, U.S. military leader; Scott Glenn, actor; Gene Siskel, film critic; Christopher Hampton, playwright and screenwriter; Jules Feiffer, cartoonist and playwright.
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.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Start slowly, in a steady and deliberate manner, and you'll build the foundation of something that can really take off when the time is right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's a good day to accept what another offers, even though it may not fulfill all of your expectations. Compromise is beneficial.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's not necessary for you to be everywhere at once; you can arrange things quite well from the comfort of your own home.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll realize that what you are trying to do may not have the intended effect. Consider making a recommended change.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to do more early in the day as a result of a schedule change that was simply unavoidable. Someone else's business comes first.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Others may believe your preferences are vague, but the fact is that you're after something very specific. You must make this known.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can't expect those around you to read your mind -- even those who know you best. You must be willing to engage in honest talk.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may impress someone with your ability to anticipate his or her emotional responses. Indeed, you are unusually perceptive!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to be making many rules for yourself and others, and you must be sure to stick to them yourself, as an example.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What happens to you early in the day will surely affect you later on -- but in ways that defy expectation or, for now, comprehension.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're waiting to hear from someone in charge whether you have completed a job to his or her satisfaction. News may come that surprises you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Two seemingly random and unrelated events conspire to put you in a new position that affords you an advantageous view.
