Born today, you are never likely to be mistaken for anyone else, nor are you one to disappear into the crowd, lost in a shroud of sameness and conventionality. You were born to do things your way, even when it requires you to break with tradition, challenge other people's sense of propriety, and potentially endanger yourself and those around you. You are always defiant of those who would tell you what to do, from the most routine tasks to the most unusual of endeavors. You are highly intelligent, but also deeply intuitive; you combine thought and feeling in ways that are uniquely yours, and you're not the kind to follow a path that you have not created for yourself -- or, at least, studied carefully to determine that it is suited to you and your needs.
"Good" and "bad" are always relative concerns to you; you believe wholeheartedly in the notion of "situation ethics," which tells you that the same action can be either good or bad depending on prevailing circumstances. You are studious, inquisitive, and opinionated, and you have been endowed with a keen and rather mischievous sense of humor.
Also born on this date are: Elvis Presley, King of Rock 'n' Roll; Stephen Hawking, physicist; David Bowie, singer and actor; Graham Chapman, comedian and actor; Bob Eubanks, game-show host; Yvette Mimieux, actress; Larry Storch, actor; Ron Moody, actor; Jose Ferrer, actor; Wilkie Collins, author; Bill Graham, music promoter.
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.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to bow out of a project that you feel isn't going in the right direction, but will you be able to keep your feelings to yourself?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It'll prove more important than usual today for you to address the difficult issues directly. Beating around the bush is no good for anyone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have gotten used to having things your way recently, but today that trend is likely to change. Adjust your attitude accordingly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There's no reason to become combative simply because you disagree with someone about something of little import. Keep things in perspective.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Are you aware of the finality of things that are happening at this time? You may be required to bid farewell to something quite dear to you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may wish that you had signed on with friends to a project you hear is much more enjoyable than you had imagined. Is it too late?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The questions you ask today yield only some of the information you need. You'll have to search if you want to uncover the rest.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It may be a good time for you to do a certain thing entirely yourself that is traditionally a group effort. This has happened before.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Quality control becomes an issue today as you open the door to more and more participants. Too many cooks spoil the broth!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be able to get as much rest as you feel you need today, but that won't stop you from getting things done according to schedule.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You've begun doing things in a way that attracts a new kind of attention -- but is that what you really want? You can still turn back.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be caught between two conflicting desires today. With a little work, you can reconcile your feelings and have it both ways.
