Born today, you are so self-possessed that it is rare for you to do anything that unintentionally attracts attention to you, whether positive or negative. Indeed, you seem to be so controlled that at times others may believe that you have simply forsaken emotions altogether and chosen to live in the mind, content to think without feeling, and do without any kind of fear or trepidation at all. While this may be the impression that some have, the truth of the matter is quite the opposite: You have to be a master of self-control and self-possession because you are so emotional. Were you not in control at all times, you would be flying into fits of excess again and again!
You seem to know what is going on beneath the surface of things, and that is likely to lead you into a life where you spend much of your time revealing the truth of things to others. You also have the patience and curiosity to peel away the layers of life's onions slowly and methodically, one by one.
Also born on this date are: Alicia Keys, singer; Patrick Willis, football player; Robert Burns, poet; Virginia Woolf, writer; Dean Jones, actor; Tobe Hooper, director; Corazon Aquino, former Philippine president; Edwin Newman, television journalist.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to be forgiven for something you did quite some time ago, but you'd better not take any chances by doing it again!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in for a surprise if you accept an invitation to an unusual sort of reunion. Bring with you all you can, and be ready to share.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be surprised by the speed with which a new set of circumstances begins to influence you. Be nimble in mind and body.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can demonstrate certain knowledge that you know sets you apart from the rest. Later, an opportunity may come your way as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in a competitive mood -- more so than usual -- and you must find an outlet if you're going to stay balanced and in touch.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be riding a wave of success, but be sure that what happens around you doesn't go unnoticed. Pay attention to others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to do more at home than in the workplace, but what you do in each location will affect all peripheral activities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have a real chance at victory, but take care that you don't let overconfidence thwart your efforts. Be realistic.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're trying to conceal something that everyone seems to know already, so why waste the effort? Focus on things that really matter!
