Born today, your actions do not always please everyone, but that is very rarely of any concern to you. That you can please some people is quite enough, and you focus your energies on doing so again and again, as often as possible. You understand that your style may not be to everyone's taste, and you never spend too much time or energy trying to change the minds of those who are not drawn to you. Rather, you choose to be true to those who are already in your camp, to do all you can for them and to better yourself in the process. Indeed, being yourself and presenting the real you to the world is perhaps your single greatest endeavor.
You can go slow, you can go fast, you can stand still, you can be on the move -- but no matter what you are doing, you can be sure that you will attract the attention of others. You seem to have that certain something that allows you to turn heads simply by walking into a room.
Also born on this date are: Aaliyah, singer; Joe Flacco, football player; Albert Pujols, baseball player; Kate Moss, fashion model; Sade, singer; Debbie Allen, dancer, choreographer and actress; Ronnie Milsap, singer; John Carpenter, filmmaker; Ethel Merman, singer and actress; A.J.

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.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a slight advantage over an adversary, but it's certainly not enough to warrant easing off right now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be able to relinquish control over one thing but retain control over a related situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be nursing an emotional injury that has taken more of a toll than you originally anticipated -- though recovery is assured.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone may not be where you expect him or her to be, so you will have to adjust your game plan on the fly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've demonstrated in the past how you are able to shine in even the worst of circumstances. You may need to do it again.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are facing a rather long journey, but an idea that is spawned not long before you set out may shorten it considerably.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Keep thinking, and you'll surely come up with a way to avoid something you have long been fearing, close as it may be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good time to let others in on a little secret. What happens as a result may surprise you, but it really shouldn't.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may want to relax and let a teammate take charge, but you should not. Rather, you must redouble your efforts in a certain area.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't have to have an original idea to make headway. Indeed, you're likely to work best with the tried and true.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can learn much about something that has only recently piqued your interest. Your connection to an expert speeds the process.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been making assumptions lately that have put you in a vulnerable position. It's time to revise your way of thinking.
