Born today, you can and will do things the way they are supposed to be done, but all the while you are planning your break with tradition and convention. Eventually, when given the opportunity, you will allow your own personality and abilities to burst forth unencumbered by rules, regulations or expectations. When that time comes, you can expect to achieve most if not all of your goals -- provided, of course, that you remain true to yourself as the money and other rewards start coming in. You run the risk of falling prey to a kind of "success syndrome" that pulls you away from yourself and actually turns you into someone you're not -- someone you certainly would not like! You have a flair for the dramatic, and your reactions to most developments are almost always heightened.
You possess a driving curiosity that will ensure you learn a great deal about the world in which you live -- and the people around you. Even if it is a subject that doesn't directly concern you or affect you, you are likely to study and appreciate it. In fact, there is very little in the world that doesn't fascinate you.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer and songwriter; Nicolas Sarkozy, French politician and president; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Jackson Pollock, painter; Frank Darabont, director.

MONDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Today you may want to get a head start on something so that, in the days or weeks to come, you can make room for yet another personal project.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Messages you receive today may not seem to be telling you the same thing, even though they are sent by the same person for the same reason.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is the time for you to consider someone else's offer of a change of employment. If you make a change now, difficulties should be minimized.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are looking forward to something that is fast approaching, and it's likely to be here before the day is out. Are you truly ready for it?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You like asking questions, but you're not all that adept at answering them right now. It's a good thing a knowledgeable friend is by your side!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is likely to make an assertion today that challenges your beliefs in a fundamental way. It's time to consider alternate views.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to avoid any kind of knee-jerk reactions today -- and by all means steer clear of a tit-for-tat response. Rationality must reign!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are having trouble getting all your ducks in a row, but it may be because you have been insinuating yourself in someone else's business.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You cannot expect remuneration today for a job well done, as you claimed to be doing it out of the goodness of your heart!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What happens in and around your home today is far more likely to have lasting consequences than anything that happens at the workplace.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may discover that you have been getting away with something that no one else has been able to do before you. Have the rules been changed?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have many options available to you today, but that doesn't mean your choice will be easy. Consider all your past and current needs.
