Born today, you are not always who you seem to be, especially when it comes to the casual observer who barely interacts with you but who claims to know you well. The truth is that you have so many distinct and clear-cut facets to your personality that one might mistake you for a Gemini native -- indeed, even after you correct the error, one is likely to go on thinking it is so! You like nothing so much as to test yourself in an arena that is not all that familiar to you, doing that which doesn't necessarily come naturally. You will have at it with gusto, never fearing failure, until you finally acquit yourself well and prove to be one who can handle almost anything. While you can be quite stylish and even "grand" in your demeanor, you can also behave in an ordinary and down-to-earth fashion. Despite appearances, you very much enjoy the simple things in life.
You are likely to travel much in your lifetime, exploring places and cultures that are hidden from much of the rest of the world. You enjoy learning all you can from those who live very differently from yourself, and you're the kind to apply the lessons to your daily life. You are, indeed, something of a chameleon.
Also born on this date are: Karan Brar, actor; Oliver Hardy, actor and comedian; Cary Grant, actor; Danny Kaye, actor and comedian; Kevin Costner, actor, producer and director; Becca Tobin, actress; A.A. Milne, author; Daniel Webster, statesman; John Boorman, filmmaker.
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.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Not every endeavor is likely to be as important as the last -- or the next. What's most important is that you continue making progress.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have at least one good reason for doing something that goes against the rules, but you recognize that now may not be the time -- just yet.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There is only so much you can do with the tools you have at your disposal today. Perhaps you can focus more on preparation than execution.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The unexpected has you turning in a new direction today -- much to your surprise. A friend or partner throws you a life line.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find that too much caution can result in an increase in personal danger today. Moderation is the key, of course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will want to keep your needs and desires in careful balance today, even as you assess just how they are different -- and why.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can show someone else how to get a certain thing done, but at some point, you're going to have to let him or her go it alone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Take care that what you do in the presence of others today is not in any way inappropriate -- or subject to any misinterpretation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can expect certain things to change quite suddenly today -- but if you're prepared, you shouldn't be rendered incapable because of it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more willing you are to give someone else a break, the more likely you will be to afford the same consideration in the near future.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A game of tit-for-tat results in something you did not in any way anticipate. You and your sparring partner must reconsider intentions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone you know well tries your patience today as you attempt to do something that requires your complete attention.
