Born today, you have a great deal of personal power, but you may not know how to recognize it, harness it or shape it until well into adulthood. When you are young, you experience much that teaches you many valuable lessons, but despite having a goal in mind, you're not likely to reach it at that point in your life -- at least not in the manner you may have anticipated. You will require a good deal of curing, ripening and maturing before you are able to fulfill your true potential. When you do, you can burst onto the scene in a way that makes it impossible for others to ignore you. Your rewards will be both tangible and spiritual.
You have a good head for business, and you know how to turn a little money into more money -- and, perhaps, a great deal of money before you are done! You have a knack for investing wisely -- in resources, projects and people. You know a good thing when you see one.
Also born on this date are: Oprah Winfrey, actress and media figure; Adam Lambert, singer; Tom Selleck, actor; Heather Graham, actress; Paul Ryan, politician; William McKinley, U.S. president; W.C. Fields, actor and comedian; Anton Chekhov, author; John Forsythe, actor; Victor Mature, actor; Katharine Ross, actress; Thomas Paine, political theorist and author; Greg Louganis, Olympic diver; Sara Gilbert, actress.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be sure to remain in balance, mentally and physically, no matter what comes your way. Strength is drawn from secret sources.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can put pressure on someone else to make a decision that will free you from a current rut. Together you can make a lot happen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are no stranger to adversity, but you know how to dodge a coming challenge so that you remain squarely on course.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may think that it's time to ignore one or two of the rules, but thinking may be your problem right now. Try to be more instinctive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There's no point in grumbling about something that you have known for some time that you would have to do today. Smile -- and get it over with!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can break things open, pick up the pace and get very close to an important personal goal before nightfall. Someone is impressed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can do much more than others are expecting you to do -- and little of it may actually have been planned. You're playing it by ear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't drop the ball! Others are counting on you to go the distance, no matter what obstacles may stand in your way. You can do it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may benefit from a second strong effort if your first doesn't win you the results you're after. It's not over until you say so!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone may request more of you than you were originally willing to provide -- but circumstances may change and allow you to oblige.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A calm, quiet, persistent approach will serve you well. There's no reason to make a fuss when things are going your way.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to have an idea blocked very soon after you share it, but it's not the end of the road. Adjustments can be made.
