Born today, you have tremendous vision, drive and ambition, and it's likely that you will rise above your station and achieve much that is quite surprising to those who "knew you when." You are not bound by the rules that tend to hold other people back; rather, you will pursue your dreams with a bold and free approach that owes little to anyone else. For this reason, you can consider your successes to be personal triumphs of the highest order. Though you value autonomy almost to the point of fanaticism, you can certainly work and play with others when circumstances tell you it is the wise and productive thing to do -- especially when you know that you will be walking away from the endeavor with your head held high and your bank account full!
You imbue everything you do with a kind of gravity and emotional maturity that is actually quite rare. Because of this, people are more likely to listen to you when you speak -- even when you are speaking on trivial matters. You have a way of attracting attention and using it to your distinct advantage.
Also born on this date are: Phil Collins, singer-songwriter and musician; Christian Bale, actor; Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dick Martin, actor and comedian; Dorothy Malone, actress; Gene Hackman, actor; Wilmer Valderrama, actor; Dick Cheney, U.S. vice president; Vanessa Redgrave, actress; Brett Butler, comedian and actress; Boris Spassky, chess grandmaster; Charles Dutton, actor; Lloyd Alexander, author.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may be quite difficult to get an unbiased assessment of something you've long relied on, but it's completely necessary.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A certain someone may be on your mind throughout much of the day. This can be an inspiration or a distraction, depending on your attitude.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your energy level may fluctuate quite dramatically throughout the day. What you eat will have less to do with it than what you do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Collaboration with a Scorpio native may prove difficult, but an Aquarian should be able to step in and get things moving in little time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to distract yourself from your primary line of endeavor. Maintain a clean and organized workspace!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Focus on that which is part of your overall plan, and don't let someone else's suggestions steer you away from your line of attack.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can learn a great deal about how to wrest the advantage from a rival -- from that rival himself! He is sending you many clear signals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be exposing yourself to harm without knowing it. The more you read up on certain issues, the more you can protect yourself.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you want to continue along your current course, you're going to have to arm yourself against certain threats that are new on the scene.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to follow someone else into the danger zone, but think twice. You are not as invulnerable as you think you are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Others may be gravitating toward you and raising your excitement level, but what's really going on? Investigate closely -- on your own.
