Born today, you are able to connect with other people on many levels, and a day is considered a disappointment if it doesn't afford you numerous opportunities to do so. You thrive on interaction of all kinds, though you prefer to connect on the deepest possible level. You do appreciate that this cannot happen all the time, and yet you are always open to getting to know someone better than anyone else and to sharing portions of your life in ways that are unique to that relationship -- and vice versa. You are honest and genuine; yours is not a "manufactured" personality, and you live by the adage that "what you see is what you get." Others can trust you to be open, honest and straightforward -- and yet you are also sensitive and circumspect in your dealings with those around you.
You have a number of special talents, for which you can thank not only the stars, but also your parents -- who no doubt made sure that you were able to recognize and develop them as best as possible under their tutelage. It is most important to keep striving; bettering yourself professionally and personally is essential to you.
Also born on this date are: Mariska Hargitay, actress; Ernie Kovacs, TV host, writer and actor; Richard Dean Anderson, actor; John Hancock, patriot and Founding Father; Princess Caroline of Monaco; Rutger Hauer, actor; Randolph Scott, actor; Edouard Manet, painter; Chita Rivera, actress, singer and dancer.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- That which is good for someone else isn't necessarily good for you -- and vice versa. To each his own today -- and tomorrow, too!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you do today is going to have lasting repercussions; you must be sure that you're not surprising anyone with any last-minute plans or ideas.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your financial situation may be the cause of some stress today, but you can solve the most immediate problem by doing what others tell you to do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time to get an expert opinion on a problem you've been stubbornly facing for quite some time. This is above your pay scale!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've come up with some strange explanations for your behavior before, but today's are likely to take the cake. Come down to earth!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be asked to help out in a situation that is utterly foreign to you, but you can learn quickly and provide some valuable support.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Take a look into the future and you'll realize that you've been working toward a certain but heretofore unknown goal for quite some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You needn't fear anything that happens today as a result of your efforts. It's another's doings that may throw a wrench in the works.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You know that something quite unusual is going on, but you cannot name it nor can you do anything to stop it -- just yet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't let yourself be pulled off track today by anyone who believes his or her work is more important than yours. There is room for both!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can give those under your care something very special today, and the powers that be appreciate that you are providing something original.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are working toward a certain result today, but you may be surprised to learn that your influence is not felt by everyone at this time.
