Born today, you enjoy all that is unusual, and the more you are challenged, the happier you will be. You have a knack for sidestepping the really difficult things, but as a result you often find yourself immersed in efforts that are not at all the norm. This, of course, is right up your alley. Others often look upon you with considerable curiosity, and even as they recognize that you are nothing like them, they are likely to wish that they were more like you. You are a highly charismatic individual who inspires others and wins a great deal of universal admiration.
You have very colorful moods, and you are not always in control of which of your "humors" will be dominant at any given time. You will learn, as the years pass, to anticipate changes in mood so that you are not thrown for a loop every time you suddenly find yourself feeling differently from the way you felt merely hours before.

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.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Distractions abound today, but you can still get everything done without having to lock yourself away. Your attention is quite keen.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to step in and show others "how it's done" today. Take care, however, that you don't overdo it and hurt yourself somehow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be concerned with more than optics today; indeed, safety and security are key issues that you cannot afford to overlook at this time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When the time comes to step up and do what only you can, you'll know it. You will require no cues from anyone else.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can get more done working with a rival than against him or her -- but that's nothing new. What is new is the fun you two can have together.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day to reach out to another and credit him or her for the positive influence he or she has had on your life. Be honest!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something difficult is easy today, and something easy is far more difficult than it has ever been. Not everything will be topsy-turvy like this.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your disappointment over a recent poor performance is offset today by the delight you take in someone else's success. This shows good sense!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Take a closer look at things today and adjust your viewing angle to consider the greatest possible detail. You mustn't miss anything!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Style isn't everything, but it's a large component of what you have to provide today. You can do what you are called upon to do, surely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Giving another what he or she asks for may be doing an injustice; it's a good day to encourage everyone to work harder for what they want.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can trust in the laws of physics to see you through today. Inertia doesn't have to keep you standing still; it can keep you moving!
