Born today, you are one of your sign's most outgoing, expressive, life-affirming individuals. You strive, each and every day, to keep the negative out of life's equation. You have a knack for seeing the bright side of almost every situation -- and for turning others on to that bright side, as well. You were never meant to be on your own or to live in a vacuum; you prefer the company of people -- the more the merrier, in fact! In both your private life and public affairs, you are at your best when you are interacting with those around you. Indeed, you only risk falling into any serious kind of rut or depression when solitude is forced upon you by circumstance.
You are highly thoughtful, even analytical, and you can approach a problem from almost any side, so thorough is your ability to comprehend what you are facing. This doesn't mean, however, that you can solve every problem! But when it comes to living with a problem, you may prove to be one of the best.
Also born on this date are: Ellen Degeneres, comedian, actress and TV host; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Eddie Van Halen, musician and songwriter; Paul Newman, actor; Anita Baker, singer; Douglas MacArthur, military leader; Scott Glenn, actor; Gene Siskel, film critic; Christopher Hampton, playwright and screenwriter; Jules Feiffer, cartoonist and playwright.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Think twice before putting things in writing or posting information online. Are you sure you want it to last forever?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A secret you've kept for some time may nearly be revealed through a series of accidental encounters and developments.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to be sure that those around you follow the rules -- which, of course, will make it easier for you to do the same.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Trust your instincts, and do what you know is best. When deciding between thought and action, think about how much time is available.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may feel as though someone is watching you -- and not at all for the right reasons. Have you done anything questionable lately?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to get things done, but you don't know if collaboration is the best choice available to you. Others are far more certain.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are prepared for what lies ahead, but you must still accept the fact that there is only so much you can do. Some things will surprise you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What happens at a safe distance may not give you enough information or inspiration. You'll have to get up close and personal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have only a limited amount of time to dedicate to a certain project -- and the clock has been ticking for quite a while!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you read may not provide you with the comfort you seek. You will benefit much more from a firsthand experience.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are after significant improvement, but you may not know where to begin. A recent promise didn't quite pan out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to be a bit more daring than you are used to, but a friend or loved one has your back. It's time to take a bold step.
