Born today, you seem to be a powerful individual who can make his or her way through any sort of environment with little or no fuss, immune to the kinds of threats that may give others pause. While this may be true up to a point, the fact is that you will usually opt for the path of least resistance over one that requires you to face unending challenges. You can muster the strength and resolve to face anything that frightens or tests you, but it's certainly not what you prefer! You are actually quite sensitive, and you enjoy time spent with friends and family. You are likely to devote a great deal of time and energy to making your home the perfect place to hide away from the world. In all likelihood, you consider this a form of creative survival!
You harbor feelings that ride a current of emotion deep within, yet you're not apt to share those feelings with others on a regular basis. On the contrary, you are far more protective of your emotional well-being than anyone might suspect. Only your closest friends have a window into your soul.
Also born on this date are: Ernest Borgnine, actor; John Belushi, actor and comedian; Neil Diamond, singer; Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gymnast; Matthew Lillard, actor; Sharon Tate, actress; Aaron Neville, singer; Warren Zevon, singer-songwriter; Maria Tallchief, ballerina; Brian Cushing, football player; Nastassja Kinski, model and actress; Oral Roberts, televangelist; Edith Wharton, novelist.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're riding a temporary high. Someone close to you may warn you of a difficulty that is fast approaching. Are you ready?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take care that you don't allow others to get the better of you simply because of something you say in a moment of carelessness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't unring a bell. Much will depend on your ability to anticipate the cost of what you do -- or what you fail to do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be ready to take on a new responsibility very soon, but you are more likely to want quality time with a friend or loved one.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may meet someone who challenges your sense of what is appropriate and timely. You may find yourself doing something rather unusual.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been spending a little too much time talking about what you're going to do, and not enough time doing it. It's time to get moving!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you call "progress" may seem to be something quite different to a rival who keeps insisting on throwing a wrench into the works.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something that is already known by many in your inner circle may become common knowledge before the day is out. Are you ready for that?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are aware of things that are happening under cover of secrecy, but this may soon prove to be a double-edged sword.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be able to teach a friend how to feel a little more than usual, but not right away. You're going to have to progress in stages.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you are currently working on is by no means a slam-dunk. You may have to risk a great deal and move forward despite the odds.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to have to make an important decision without having all the information you hoped you'd have.
