Born today, you are forthright, down to earth, plain-speaking and always on the lookout for an intended deception to uncover. You insist on receiving honest treatment from others, just as you insist on being honest yourself. You are keenly interested in the world around you, and in both your personal life and your career, you make a point of learning all you can about every subject you can -- the more unusual, the better! You will snoop around here and there, uncovering all kinds of interesting information that others don't have -- not because you want to know more than anyone else, but because the strange and the outrageous are most compelling to you.
Once you develop a vision and a strategy for your life, you're not likely to stray in any significant way, no matter what happens. Indeed, those who follow your progress can almost always anticipate your next steps, consistency being one of your greatest strengths. You have keen instincts and are never afraid to ask the tough questions.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Mo Rocca, comedian and journalist; Sarah McLachlan, singer-songwriter; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Kathryn Morris, actress; Frank Darabont, director.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Any attempt to change your overall approach to a certain key situation is likely to be a waste of time. Trust your usual methods.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The demands being made on your time and attention are distracting you from an issue you want to study more closely. An opportunity approaches.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must be sure to express yourself in a genuine manner throughout the day. Don't try to adopt any style that doesn't come naturally.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to fulfill every promise immediately, but that doesn't mean you've broken them altogether. There's always tomorrow.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll have only one chance to take control of a certain situation, and those around you are certainly eager to lend their support.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've put your trust in someone who may not be there to assist you as expected. This means you've got to go it alone for a while.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to provide necessary help to someone far away, but you can only do so by trusting in technology and your ability to be clear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone may be offering you a so-called bargain that is, in reality, nothing of the kind. Steer clear, and know you're saving money!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are able to provide a friend or loved one with precisely the kind of support he or she most needs. Results are immediate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more you insist that someone else does precisely what you say, the more he or she is likely to resist. Strive for a compromise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're waiting for the right situation to evolve before setting something in motion that you've long anticipated.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It'll be more difficult to get things done on time and under budget than you had expected, but certain pieces do fall into place.
