Born today, you are quite sensitive and open, and you are susceptible to any request that taps into the emotional component of a situation. If someone merely asks you for help, you may or may not give it; but if someone appeals to you emotionally, then you're sure to give him or her precisely what he or she wants -- and then some. You are able to tackle big, important problems, but you must always guard against emotional exhaustion -- not mere fatigue, for you have been endowed with tremendous stores of energy and a great deal of physical stamina, but rather the kind of exhaustion that comes from feeling too much and taking matters too personally. Indeed, you are one of the most emotional individuals born under your sign, and it would be a good thing for you to win the friendship or love of someone who will pledge to protect you from getting hurt.
You tend to be fastidious when it comes to your environment, manners and personal hygiene. You like things to be "just so" -- often spotless. Your home is almost always ready for guests; you never have to do any last-minute cleaning when you learn someone is going to be stopping by. Dust bunnies are rarer than unicorns in your domain!
Also born on this date are: Rowan Atkinson, actor and comedian; Eddie Redmayne, actor; Joan of Arc, saint; Nigella Lawson, author and chef; Danny Thomas, actor; Loretta Young, actress; Bonnie Franklin, actress; Carl Sandburg, poet and author; Howie Long, football player; Vic Tayback, actor; Victor Fleming, filmmaker; Tom Mix, actor; John Singleton, filmmaker; Anthony Minghella, filmmaker.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others are gravitating toward you not because of what you do or say, but simply because of who you are. Your inner power is on display.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be going through something that no one else will be able to understand fully, no matter how hard you try to explain.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The workplace may prove to be a place of support and solace for you in a way that it hasn't in the past. Things are changing for the better!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can work very quickly, but you run the risk of making one or two errors that cannot be undone. Take the time you need!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your thirst for knowledge is virtually unquenchable. You'll have the chance to explore something entirely on your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- As you pick up a good head of steam, you're likely to attract attention from those who can be quite critical. Don't give it a single thought!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- How you deal with an uncomfortable situation tells others all they need to know about you. Trust your instincts and do what's right.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can get things done much more quickly on your own than you can in tandem with another. An early start gives you an added boost.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Quality control may be an issue, but you know how to get the best out of those working by your side. Your team can come out ahead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to take advantage of an opportunity that comes around only once in a great while. A loved one will give you a valuable tip.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you had supposed was unavoidable is really not -- and vice versa. You'll find yourself in an unusual situation toward midday.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A friend may be going through a difficult time, and today you'll have the opportunity to reach out and make things a little better.
