Born today, you are quite intentionally one of the most entertaining individuals born under your sign -- the kind to keep others guessing, keep them jumping and keep them smiling, no matter what else might be going on at the time. This doesn't mean, however, that you are always the happiest or most carefree of individuals; on the contrary, like all clowns you have a dark side, and you can often sink into a rut of depression over the slightest thing -- but most often it is not the thing itself, but something deep within you that causes your mood to shift from one extreme to the other. What is perhaps most interesting about your makeup is that while you often have to work at being jovial and optimistic, it is far more natural for you to be serious and even somber. There are times in which you simply cannot watch the news!
While you work hard to ensure that your private affairs remain private, you must get used to the fact that other people like to know what is going on with you, and that you may well be the center of attention even when you are not "on." It may seem, at times, as though you are trying to keep secrets -- and so you are.
Also born on this date are: Steve Perry, singer; Guy Fieri, TV personality and chef; Diane Lane, actress; Linda Blair, actress; John Hurt, actor; Steven Adler, drummer; Bill Bixby, actor; Gabriel Macht, actor; Sir Francis Bacon, author and philosopher; Sir Walter Raleigh, explorer and soldier; Piper Laurie, actress; Ann Sothern, actress; D.W. Griffith, director; August Strindberg, playwright.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to endure a slower start than usual, but you're not likely to remain at the back of the pack for long. The pace quickens.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others are eager to see what you may do to follow a recent rousing success. You don't have to decide right away, but you have some ideas.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may want to adjust your entire schedule to favor morning work; you can get more done at this time when you are fresh and looking forward.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can win a great deal of praise today by doing only what comes naturally to you. Step out of your comfort zone and unpleasantness awaits.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Giving another what you think he or she is due may feel good at first, but it's not likely to win you any friends. Be more charitable today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Everything you do today will be judged in relation to something you did a while ago that has not yet been forgotten. This may be frustrating.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What begins as a game becomes very serious before the day is out, and a decision you make affects you and yours for a long time to come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to work on your overall attitude today, as there are those who simply don't want to work with you until some changes are made.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have a great many responsibilities today, and you cannot afford to let any of them slip through the cracks. You must be vigilant!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be expecting something of a slow day, but you're likely to be surprised as certain developments have you moving very quickly indeed!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to spice things up a bit, but you also know that that may not be appropriate. Can you find a middle ground?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Others may have to do more for you today than you do for them -- but that's only fair, considering what's going on with you right now.
