Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous talent, yet you may not fully realize it until you understand that there is more to life than the kind of success that talent can bring you. So what does this mean in a practical sense? You must learn to balance professional accomplishment -- the direct result of talent combined with hard work -- and personal contentment, which cannot always be derived from professional endeavors. It is this balance that will enable you to value all things in your life as highly as possible and maintain a healthy self-image and worldview.
You will have several very hard decisions to make in your lifetime, and your choice will determine the trajectory of your life from that point forward. What is essential, of course, is that you avoid any sort of self-doubt or second-guessing -- and steer clear of the dark side!
Also born on this date are: Dolly Parton, singer and actress; Jean Stapleton, actress; Janis Joplin, singer; Shelley Fabares, actress; Paula Deen, celebrity chef; Edgar Allan Poe, author; Robert E. Lee, Confederate military leader; Katey Sagal, actress; Robert Palmer, singer; Paul Cezanne, painter; Michael Crawford, actor and singer; Junior Seau, football player; Logan Lerman, actor.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The choice between work and play will be with you all day long, and it will be difficult to make. Perhaps you can combine the two!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will receive news that affects how you approach a new project at work. Some of the ideas you've had in the past will surely apply.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your uncertainty merely stems from the fact that what you are about to attempt has never been tried. You can do it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- While giving others what they most want and need, you can also provide yourself with something you've not enjoyed for quite some time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to enforce all the rules, not just those you choose. This will result in the kind of fairness you seek for all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can see through deception better than would-be deceivers are able to judge your righteousness. You will win!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A search for something that hasn't been missing very long leads you down a road that's full of surprises. A valuable lesson is learned.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Don't waste time trying to fix blame before you have put in the effort required to solve the problem at hand.
