Born today, you are nothing if not a team player, and you will go out of your way to find other people to work with rather than do something on your own. You are at your best when combining your skills and talents with those who are like-minded and eager to put their heads together with yours. You are at your best, in fact, only when working in tandem with a team of individuals with whom you share an overall way of working. You enjoy bouncing ideas off others and letting a plan evolve through open interchange of thoughts and methods. Perhaps there is an insecurity lurking beneath your skin, for you sometimes doubt that your individual efforts measure up.
You know how to put your best foot forward, especially in situations that might end with you enjoying a new opportunity. When the future is on the line, you know how to play your best game! You much prefer playing when the stakes are high, rather than just going through the motions when nothing is on the line.
Also born on this date are: Rod Stewart, singer; Pat Benatar, singer; Jim Croce, singer and songwriter; Ray Bolger, actor; George Foreman, boxer; Jerry Wexler, music producer; Paul Henreid, actor; Willie McCovey, baseball player; Sal Mineo, actor; Stephen E. Ambrose, author and historian; Max Roach, drummer.
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.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can combine work and play in a way that serves you very well in both scenarios. A friend gives you more of what you want than expected.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can give a little extra to someone in need today, even while you are grappling with a problem that doesn't show signs of letting up.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can make swift progress early in the day -- and this is a good thing, because your energy may wane suddenly later on, requiring you to rest.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Everyone is telling you that you can get a great deal done on your own today, but you want to be working in tandem with others right now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be grappling with the way things "seem" throughout much of the day. Later on, you'll have a much firmer grasp of what is real, surely.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What lies ahead looks manageable, but you must be ready to face a challenge head-on. You have a surprise of your own in store.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can move from here to there with surprising speed today, but that's only because you know where you've been and where you want to go.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You and a friend can conspire to do something that others do not have the courage to do -- but the plans may be tricky to make.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You receive instructions today that are perhaps unclear. Take the time to sort through those aspects that are most unusual.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know a great deal, but a lot of it won't serve you very well today as you face a situation that is completely new. Guesswork counts!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be in an unusually jovial mood, and others will respond well to your clowning and fun. There's work to be done, however.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A complicated situation requires your attention today. Others may not understand at first why you must give them less time than expected.
