Born today, you never know when to call it quits. While this can certainly be an advantage in many things, it can also threaten you at times when what you are doing is the cause of great risk to you and yours. There are times when you may feel that those who warn you against proceeding are simply jealous of your natural tenacity and ability to look hardship in the eye, but sometimes those warnings should nevertheless be heeded, for you may be traveling very close to the edge. Were you to slip or stumble, you may bring disaster upon yourself -- or, at the very least, upon your current project.
You have a great lust for life, and your enthusiasm and zeal are contagious; those around you learn very quickly to approach things with your brand of eagerness and delight. You are curious and compelled to learn as much as you can about the world around you and the people in it.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer-songwriter; Nicolas Sarkozy, former French president; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Kathryn Morris, actress; Frank Darabont, director.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have the chance to counter someone else's move with one of your own, and you're likely to back him or her into a corner.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to clarify a certain issue with someone who hasn't been on the case for very long, but he or she will catch up quickly.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A long-distance relationship -- whether personal or professional -- is likely to become more complicated. Don't avoid the truth!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Once you start, you're likely to work until you're finished -- unless you are pulled away because a friend in need requires immediate help.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't neglect those who are not willing to ask for the help they need. If this means you must read their minds, so be it! Anticipate!
