Born today, you go about your business with tremendous gusto and good humor; indeed, there are times when your ability to laugh may actually land you in hot water! You are not one to follow rules blindly; you will do what you must, whether that action is "sanctioned" or not. What would be best, of course, is if you and the powers-that-be were to find a way to co-exist. There is room for both you and those who make the rules; all you have to do is figure out the best way to avoid tension and maximize the potential for tolerant cooperation. You are a keen student of human behavior, and you are able to anticipate the actions of others on many occasions.
Your ability to circumvent tricky patches will serve you well throughout your lifetime and help you avoid those pitfalls to which others fall prey. This, of course, has much to do with the fact that you are always aware of your surroundings.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Cicely Tyson, actress; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, singer; Robert Urich, actor; Ralph Richardson, actor; Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Be sure to look at the clock from time to time today. You mustn't get so immersed in your work that you forget a long-standing commitment.
