Born today, you are always the one in the room to question authority, point out prevalent injustices and ask why a thing must be so. You are likely to win more than your share of admiration as a result -- but you are just as likely to earn criticism, too, from those who are not strong enough, secure enough or genuine enough to recognize that what you are doing is likely paving the way to a better world. You will balk at no challenge; you will do what is necessary to grow, to evolve, to progress -- and you will lead others kicking and screaming into the future as well! You recognize that your time on this planet is not indefinite, and you will do all you can to make the best possible use of every moment. You don't always follow the rules; you would rather, in fact, make the rules. In fact, that is precisely how you live! To do things your way is to live free and be happy.
You have prodigious talents, and your creativity knows no bounds. You simply must learn to harness your abilities at an early age if you are to make the most of them later in life; miss out on any opportunities and you're likely to suffer for it later. You like to attract attention by behaving in a manner that is unconventional and even controversial; getting in trouble is often fun for you.
Also born on this date are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer; Lewis Carroll, author; Donna Reed, actress; Mimi Rogers, actress; Mikhail Baryshnikov, ballet dancer and actor; Sir Francis Drake, sea captain and explorer; Troy Donahue, actor; Alan Cumming, actor; Rosamund Pike, actress; Bridget Fonda, actress; John Roberts, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court; Jerome Kern, composer and songwriter; James Cromwell, actor.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have been playing an unusual role for quite some time, but today is the first day in which you realize just how important it is.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you are expected to do today is not something you ever thought you'd do -- much less enjoy. This may be a turning point in your career.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may be time to ask the tough questions, though not everyone will take kindly to what appears to be an intrusion. That is not your intent.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A complication arises today as you realize that what you are doing is going to conflict with what someone else has planned. You can figure it out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be suspicious of someone else's intentions today. Instead of just proceeding in the dark, find out what you need to know!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're ready to take a certain leap, but a friend has expressed reservations and is poised to hold you back. Timing is everything.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have been busy questioning another about what he or she has been doing -- and why -- but you should really be questioning yourself!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be met with blank looks today if you present your ideas without any kind of thought for what is appropriate. Do it right!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A journey you have planned may not be able to start exactly according to schedule -- but you shouldn't lose much time as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are formulating a plan that can put you in the spotlight if it goes well -- but you're not going to be able to do it all alone.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can inspire others today with your energy and commitment. You can surely bring out the best in those who follow you earnestly.
