Born today, you are likely to enjoy an early start to a long and lucrative career -- though this may not be entirely intentional, and the path you take not entirely of your choosing. Indeed, the role of fate in both your personal life and your professional affairs will be quite remarkable, and you may spend a great deal of time thanking your lucky stars for this unexpected opportunity or that chance encounter that will make the difference between obscurity and unimaginable success. Fortunately, you believe in preparation, and you will therefore be ready for whatever comes your way -- though you will often be better equipped to handle surprises in your career than in any of your personal relationships.
You are a highly expressive individual, and you're never one to suppress your feelings or opinions out of fear that it might be inappropriate to let them out. Indeed, you read like an open book, and those around you very likely know just where you stand on all of the most important issues.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer-songwriter; Nicolas Sarkozy, former French president; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Kathryn Morris, actress; Frank Darabont, director.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be surprised to learn just how many fans have been following your endeavors of late. Your track record can prove inspirational.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be a bit too casual, or even cavalier, about something that another takes very seriously. Don't hurt his or her feelings.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may fear that your presence at a certain event is not desired or welcome; in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An interruption has you thinking that maybe, just maybe, you've been spending a little too much time working away on your own.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Until the tables are turned, you're not likely to understand why someone else is taking a certain situation quite so seriously.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's time for you to give yourself more credit for all you've done lately -- especially in anticipation of all you're going to do!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Never minding so much what others do to you as what you do to them, you may be in an even more forgiving mood than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll be expecting one thing when you awake, but something entirely different by the time you retire at day's end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Are you ready for what the day promises? You may want to explore carefully at first, until your curiosity and confidence both rise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What seems certain to you is not likely to be certain to one close to you -- and a meeting of minds will surely be necessary as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to be nearer to a distant friend or loved one than you had expected. Perhaps there's occasion for a reunion?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to work hard to squeeze in a little something for yourself, as you will be serving others from morning until night.
