Born today, you know how to make a positive impression on others, and you will take full advantage of this ability throughout your life. You are likely to enjoy remarkable success while still quite young -- but it is not something you can count on later in life, unless you are willing to work hard to do even more. Indeed, the moment that you think you have reached your goals and that the success you have enjoyed is enough, you will have effectively shut the door on your own potential and made it impossible to progress further. You must remember that there is always something more for you to do!
You know how to follow the rules, but you are most successful when you bend them just slightly to suit yourself and your particular circumstances. This is not something that is likely to cause you trouble; rather, it may well bring you admiration from those who don't have the daring or the wherewithal to do what you have done to succeed.
Also born on this date are: Rowan Atkinson, actor and comic; Eddie Redmayne, actor; Joan of Arc, saint; Nigella Lawson, author and chef; Danny Thomas, actor and humanitarian; Loretta Young, actress; Bonnie Franklin, actress; Carl Sandburg, poet; Howie Long, football player; Vic Tayback, actor; Tom Mix, cowboy movie actor; John Singleton, filmmaker; Anthony Minghella, filmmaker.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You say you know better than others what is really going on, but today you're likely to experience a kind of comeuppance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone is trying to put you in your place, but you will have the upper hand almost all day long. Be careful not to do anything rash.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You certainly don't want to get in anyone's way today -- least of all your own. Proceed according to plan and be sure to get the lay of the land.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be at the center of a misunderstanding that can only be resolved when you are willing to admit to an error and let others have their say.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have doubts about what lies ahead, but there is no other course for you to follow at this time. You can make the best of this situation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to fend for yourself when you were counting on having help when things got really tough. The day brings opportunity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The difference between what you know to be true and what you only think is true lies at the center of a key issue that you must resolve today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A clash of wills cannot be avoided today. You want to be the one to call the shots when all is said and done, and timing is the key.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can avoid doing or saying anything awkward by following your instincts and staying out of a situation that is completely foreign.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must keep your reactions in check today; don't let yourself behave in a way that makes things worse. A friend offers counsel.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may think that you can accomplish only so much today, but that is merely an illusion. The sky's the limit at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Focus on that which seems out of place today. The more you ponder the situation, the more you'll realize just how important it really is.
