Born today, you are always on the lookout for that new opportunity, that new prospect, that new road that is yet untaken. Indeed, you are likely to forge ahead where others dare not tread, and the outcome will usually be positive. If it isn't initially just what you had hoped it would be, then you will do what you can to reverse those fortunes, snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, and turn bad luck into good. Others are always amazed at your ability to maneuver creatively through life in order to maximize both opportunities and rewards, and you may actually come to enjoy showing off a bit to those who may not believe you can succeed every time!
Like so many other Aquarius natives, you rely on humor to see you through the darker times. Indeed, your ability to laugh at yourself, at others and at almost anything at all will make it possible for you to prevail when others might fall short or perhaps be punished for their inability to see things in the right light.
Also born on this date are: Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and media mogul; Adam Lambert, singer; Tom Selleck, actor; Heather Graham, actress; Paul Ryan, politician; William McKinley, U.S. president; W.C. Fields, actor and comedian; Anton Chekhov, author; John Forsythe, actor; Victor Mature, actor; Katharine Ross, actress; Thomas Paine, political theorist; Greg Louganis, Olympic diver.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're in a good position to ask for what you need, but you must be as specific as possible. Don't make anyone guess!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager to get into something new with a friend or co-worker, but you must consider all possible risks, as well as benefits.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do you really want to jump right in? Perhaps you are not as ready as you think you are. A simple test provides the answer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Others are gravitating toward you on a more regular basis, but for reasons that you do not yet completely comprehend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The time has come for you to reach for the brass ring: The opportunity will be clear and undeniable. More than you know will benefit.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be feeling quite up to snuff, and the reason may rest with one who sometimes knows you better than you know yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- If you find yourself saying, "There's only one way to find out," then you'd better start following that one path immediately, to see where it leads.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can surely prepare for a major undertaking, but you may have to do so in stages. Don't try to do or learn too much at one time.
