Born today, you are not one of those who will sit by and let things happen without doing all you can to influence those events in some way -- and though others may not appreciate your involvement or find what you do somehow objectionable, there is no getting around the fact that you are memorable and will likely become quite an important person in your lifetime. When it comes to your profession, you are proud, ambitious and tenacious; you will not give an inch in the face of adversity, and you will surely progress in some way -- even if it is not a way that is expected or even approved by the powers that be. You are driven by a unique view of the world, in which you are the center and all else responds to you and your behavior. Is this mere egotism? Perhaps -- but it is an attitude that allows you to get things done!
Though you often do things merely to get a reaction out of others, you are drawn to those who give you no real thought at all. What is it about those who seem not to be affected by you and your antics? The truth is that you are more old-fashioned than you might admit, and you are drawn to those whose interests are similarly antiquated.
Also born on this date are: Howard Stern, shock jock and self-proclaimed "King of All Media"; Kirstie Alley, actress; Joe Frazier, boxer; Chris Bell, singer and guitarist; Jack London, author; Tex Ritter, singing cowboy; Oliver Platt, actor; Joe E. Lewis, singer and comedian; Mary Harron, filmmaker; Walter Mosley, author.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not ready to give up, though someone in authority may be expecting you to do just that. You have one or two surprises up your sleeve.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know just what you need from a loved one today, and there is certainly no harm in asking for it, point-blank. You'll enjoy the response!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be in the driver's seat throughout much of the day, but at some point you'll think it wise to let someone else take the wheel for a bit.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to strike a deal with someone who has been out to get you for some time. He or she may prove a tough negotiator.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Help comes to you today in the guise of something you might otherwise fear -- but you will know that today is the day to say "yes" instead of "no."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Take care today that you don't rub someone the wrong way simply because you didn't know when to quit. Some jokes are only so funny!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Are you ready to take things to the next level? You are almost positive that a loved one is waiting for you to lead the way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want anyone to think that you're not up to the task at hand, so don't give them any time to come to that conclusion. Act fast!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are on a search for something that can really make a difference to you in your private life -- but what does it look like, exactly?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What do you think you're going to do when what you value most is no longer yours? The risk of losing it may be unusually high right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Trust your instincts, and don't let anyone tell you that your experience is irrelevant. What you've done before can be repeated today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can make the difference to a friend or loved one between a memorable day and one that is best forgotten. It's very simple!
