Born today, you are not one to turn away from a challenge simply because the going gets tough; on the contrary, you will stick with a thing no matter how hard it gets, provided you feel in your soul that it is good for you and can promise personal progress -- if not tangible gains. Indeed, learning about yourself and the world around you is far more important to you than any other kind of reward, and though you will never turn down payment when it is offered -- and who would? -- you will never apply yourself to a dead-end project simply because it pays well. You feel that when you have your priorities all set, your ducks in a row and your emotions in check, you can have the world for the asking! To be true to yourself is everything, and though it may not always be easy to do so, you will strive to do so, come what may.
You have a rather unusual perspective on the world at large, and you find yourself laughing and crying in equal measure at mankind's seeming folly and insanity. And at the same time, you can make much of that very quality, for it is the craziness of the world that inspires you, fuels you and shapes the methods you apply to almost all things personal and professional.
Also born on this date are: George Burns, comedian; Paul Stanley, guitarist and singer; Buzz Aldrin, astronaut; Bill Maher, comedian and TV host; Lorenzo Lamas, actor; DeForest Kelley, actor; Aristotle Onassis, tycoon; David Lynch, director; Arte Johnson, actor and comedian; Skeet Ulrich, actor; Federico Fellini, director; Patricia Neal, actress.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can learn a thing or two today from someone who has been in your shoes before. He or she has some encouragement for you -- and a warning.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must present yourself and your ideas in a formal setting, and it is essential that you play to the highest common denominator.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been selling yourself short lately, but now's the time to recover your confidence and demand a high price for what you have to offer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your past and your future are likely to converge in one clear view of the present -- and this new perspective leads to new understanding.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be staring directly into the face of a major challenge, and yet you can still solve someone else's problem with relative ease.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Have you listened to what others have to say about a plan you made without any help or guidance? Adjustments may have to be made!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Anticipation can keep you out of all kinds of trouble today, but you'll want to be sure that you're bringing past experience to bear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- That which appears accidental may not be, and you'll want to take a closer look at all possible causes. Are you really at fault?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't want to be deprived of valuable information today. It's important that you be in the right place at the right time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Helping others helps yourself, as you will discover on at least two occasions today -- both of which take you very much by surprise.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Pay keen attention to all that goes on around you today; it may not all affect you directly, but it will teach you much about what is coming.
