Born today, you go about your business in a very businesslike fashion, and you're not the kind to let complications or unexpected developments hold you back in any way. You are strong-willed, capable and always eager to embrace a new opportunity -- though you will not risk everything for unspecified rewards. You want to know what's coming, or at least what is possible, before you commit yourself to something, especially where considerable personal risk is concerned. You are no coward, surely, but neither are you foolhardy; you want to be as safe and secure as possible -- whenever possible. Your word is your bond, and if you say you'll do something, others can consider it done.
You are a fine physical specimen, which is fortunate since you are likely to encounter many physical challenges in your lifetime. These will both tax you and allow you to develop your body and mind to their fullest. You aren't one to say no to something merely because it might be difficult.
Also born on this date are: Ernest Borgnine, actor; John Belushi, actor and comedian; Neil Diamond, singer; Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gymnast; Matthew Lillard, actor; Sharon Tate, actress; Aaron Neville, singer; Warren Zevon, singer-songwriter; Maria Tallchief, ballerina; Brian Cushing, football player; Nastassja Kinski, model and actress; Oral Roberts, televangelist; Edith Wharton, novelist.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take care that you don't let an old habit keep you from exploring something new today. You want to be moving forward, not back.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can make your move, but you must do so one step at a time. If you get ahead of yourself, you'll threaten future success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The goals you have set for yourself may not be right for many others, so attempts to assemble a team will prove difficult.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will have a choice between the rational approach and one that relies much more on instinct. Each is valid -- up to a point.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may discover early on that working to satisfy someone else's needs will put you in a better position to satisfy your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Subtle changes in your immediate environment may not have been noticeable yesterday, but today they may be front and center.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can't do what you have planned if you remain where you are, unwilling to take a new approach. You're stuck, and you must get un-stuck!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A friend offers you a choice that doesn't seem like much of a choice when you look at it from all angles. It's time to negotiate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The sooner you get others involved in your own affairs, the sooner you will hit upon the proper course of action. Teamwork is key.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to take time to assess your situation. Making snap judgments could threaten you in an unexpected way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're willing to explore a broad range of creative outlets. The farther afield you go, the more options you have.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're after something that others have been after for some time. You have faith in the process, but you can bring to it something new.
