Born today, you can appear to have a rather flamboyant or even outrageous personality, but the truth is that this isn't the real you. You are, at heart, much quieter and conventional than your public persona, and you thrive on the kind of quiet domesticity that you find with family and loved ones by your side, enjoying the pleasures of hearth and home. But when you choose to, you can really bust loose, displaying all the behavioral plumage of one who enjoys showing off, being the center of attention and even challenging others with behavior that is unconventional or even controversial. What is remarkable is that these two sides of your personality are never at odds; you know how to balance them extremely well!
Also born on this date are: Rod Stewart, singer; Pat Benatar, singer; Jim Croce, singer-songwriter; Ray Bolger, actor and dancer; George Foreman, boxer; Paul Henreid, actor; Willie McCovey, baseball player; Sal Mineo, actor; Evan Handler, actor; Shawn Colvin, singer-songwriter.
You are highly sensitive, and you can be hurt quite easily by those who are not careful with what they say or do. An errant word or action can send you spiraling into a deep, dark, melancholy place from which you may find it difficult to return. You rely heavily on those closest to you to protect you from such injuries.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your efforts are likely to get every possible reaction, from laughter to tears. This will give you a good indication of overall success.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself in an awkward position, but a friend will come to your aid just in time. Together, you can get things back in order.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've reached a good stopping point. It's time to shift gears and start thinking about something you've put off for too long.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone may be resisting you simply for the sake of being different, but most others are squarely on your side. You can move forward, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Some of the regulations you are facing may seem outdated -- or simply ill-conceived. In any event, you must play by the rules.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to trust a friend with a task that you've long assumed you would be completing. Don't let this become an issue between you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You shouldn't have trouble convincing the powers that be that your ideas are the most up-to-date and viable. You may have to demonstrate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be asked to do something rather distasteful, but you'll recognize that there is no other choice -- at least not right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to wait out a storm, either literally or figuratively. Of the two, a literal storm would cause less emotional distress.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are able to do precisely what you are told, but you'll be tempted to bend the rules slightly to see what may happen as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be trying to progress too quickly, without really letting new information sink in. You needn't be in a hurry!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Emerging news has everyone around you making new plans, but you understand that the status quo has in no way been threatened.
