Born today, you are a highly energetic, creative, motivated, educated and sensual individual -- and that combination will almost certainly guarantee that you mine all you can out of life, beginning at an early age and stopping only as you draw your final breath. You are mischievous, funloving and a wizard with words and wordplay. You are able to make a joke out of even the most mundane and routine utterances -- and this is something that will win you a great many admirers, as well as a few critics. The critics, of course, are those who simply cannot have as much fun as you, and who are jealous of your endless life force.
You do have your serious side, and when it reveals itself, you are capable of profound expressions and revelations. At such times, you seem to be plugged into the very source of wisdom in the universe, capable of a rare kind of instinctive knowledge sought by many but attained by few.
Also born on this date are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer; Lewis Carroll, author; Donna Reed, actress; Mimi Rogers, actress; Mikhail Baryshnikov, ballet dancer and actor; Sir Francis Drake, sea captain and explorer; Troy Donahue, actor; Alan Cumming, actor; Rosamund Pike, actress; Bridget Fonda, actress; John Roberts, chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court; Jerome Kern, songwriter; James Cromwell, actor.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't know how to say what you know you must, so take your time and wade carefully through the issues that are most important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You cannot control everything, but you still seem to be complaining about something that is beyond your reach. Why bother?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- That which comes under your influence will certainly benefit from a phase that you are currently going through -- on all fronts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- As soon as you start thinking that you might, indeed, know it all, circumstances will conspire to set you straight!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're curious about what drives others, yet you understand that there is only so much you can ever really know. Trust your instincts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The behavior of others, and what happens to them as a result, will compel you to walk softly -- and keep your opinions largely to yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Trust in the basics. The more complicated you make things, the longer it will take you to get in sync with those around you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're in the mood for something truly satisfying, but one look around you will tell you that you may have to wait a while longer.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are eager to see how things pan out, but you mustn't rush anything. Let everything develop according to its own schedule.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be tempted to give a repeat performance of some kind, but what others are looking for is something new and original.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- One question is likely to yield many different answers, and you'll have to wade through them carefully to get at the truth.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're expecting things to match up perfectly, but the fact is that there may be an imbalance that keeps this from happening.
