Born today, you are perhaps one of the most unique individuals born under your sign, and once you are known you are certainly not likely to be confused with anyone else, even where similarities do exist. Even as a youngster, your individuality proved to be your single greatest strength -- and so it will remain throughout your lifetime. You have been endowed with at least one remarkable talent that will shape the course of your professional life when young, and your personal life when you are older. Indeed, so important to you will be your line of work that it will be very difficult for you to separate what you do from who you are and how you live. You don't always follow established rules or guidelines.
You can work well in groups or alone, but you most favor any effort that brings you together with one other individual who shares your aspirations, interests and abilities. As part of a duo, you believe that you can really change the world! You are quite studious, and can learn a great deal from books.
Also born on this date are: Nicolas Cage, actor; Jeremy Renner, actor; David Caruso, actor; Eden Hazard, soccer player; Kenny Loggins, singer and songwriter; Butterfly McQueen, actress; Millard Fillmore, U.S. president; Alfonso Soriano, baseball player; Erin Gray, actress; Charles Addams, cartoonist; Rand Paul, U.S. senator; William Peter Blatty, author; Jean-Pierre Rampal, flautist.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not likely to be compelled by that which another proposes today -- but you may use what you see or hear to further your cause.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now's the time for you to do whatever it takes to get a pet project off the ground. If you don't do it today, it may never get done.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a friend are working toward two separate goals that, while similar, couldn't possibly lead to more different results.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care that you don't rub someone else the wrong way simply by expressing yourself openly and honestly. Temper your criticism.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you most want is surely on its way, but you're going to have to make certain concessions before you can take possession of it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have much to offer, but it's not likely to be recognized right away. You must devise a way to "sell" your ideas to the highest bidder.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Home affairs take on a strange sort of import today as you start dealing with an issue that has remained unspoken of for quite some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Oct. 22) -- There is more at stake than you might think, and you must never undervalue the power of an "accident" to affect all aspects of your life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't take things too seriously today. A sense of humor keeps you from sinking into a bog of moodiness and taking your anger out on others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to reject someone else's recommendation today even though you know it could very well work for you if only things were different.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Are you going to be able to keep yourself out of trouble today when others are swept up in the maelstrom? You must keep a safe distance!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't have to dilute your harsh opinion of certain things today -- others know you to be a tough critic. This can spawn discussion.
