Born today, you are often torn between two very different urges, each of which would lead you in very opposite directions. Your life is likely to prove one long juggling act -- an attempt to keep things in balance and avoid any temptation that could cause turmoil. You must give both sides of your character enough of an outlet that each exerts a proper influence and allows you to make conscious decisions, rather than knee-jerk reactions. If one side is favored over the other, then that which was ignored may ultimately grow into an internal obstacle that makes it impossible for you to be the best that you can be in any situation.
You may be so well-mannered at times that you fail to take full advantage of an opportunity when it comes your way. There is, as far as you are concerned, such a thing as being too fair-minded! You must remember that to put yourself first is not in and of itself a slight against anyone else, and it's something to which no one will object.
Also born on this date are: Julia Ormond, actress; Michael Stipe, singer; Dyan Cannon, actress; Don Shula, football coach; Cornelius Vanderbilt, industrialist; Sterling Holloway, actor; Tom Thumb, circus performer; Louis Braille, inventor of reading system for the blind.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be working at a faster pace than others, and today that should afford you the chance to take a much-needed breather.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- An old friend resurfaces, and you'll have cause to air a grievance that has lain dormant for some time. No lasting problems result.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be navigating more dangerous territory today, but what you went through recently should have given you the skills you most need.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't be too aggressive today. Make your intentions known in a way that softens the blow to one who may be threatened by you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you hear through the grapevine today may be food for thought, but once you realize it's only a baseless rumor you can let it all go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may want to increase your workload today, but you're interested only in doing those things that stimulate your mind and feed your soul.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know who is in charge, and you feel that must change. What can you do to depose one who has been in his or her position for so long?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A change in scenery can do you a world of good today, especially as you are finding it difficult to ride your own creative currents.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can do in one day what it takes others two or three to accomplish. This doesn't mean that you can keep up this pace indefinitely!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The possibilities may not be endless, but you will certainly have more choices than usual today. Can you recognize them all?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- That which holds the greatest value to others may mean very little to you today, and vice versa. It's all a matter of personal need.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be running out of ideas today -- or so you think. If you follow the right lead, you can enter a realm of unlimited possibilities.
