Born today, you see the world very much in terms of black and white -- and you respond dramatically to any and all such opposites in your life. You are all too ready to see things in an overly simple manner, but it is a manner that serves you well as you try to navigate a complex world. You often see things that others do not, and you are able to respond very quickly to changing circumstances -- no doubt because you are never confused by appearances. Once you make up your mind about a thing, you are determined to follow through -- even when you are faced with evidence contrary to your beliefs.
You are not as tolerant of other people as you might be -- and this is sure to result in a good deal of conflict throughout your lifetime. You likely have one or two close friends who challenge you with different ways of thinking.
Also born on this date are: Chad Lowe, actor; Charo, actress; Margaret O'Brien, actress; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., civil rights activist; Lloyd Bridges, actor; Gene Krupa, musician; Drew Brees, football player.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may want to look back at a past episode to determine whether you have progressed or taken a step backward. The truth cannot be denied.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are eager to enjoy something new and different, but you must accept the fact that it is not likely to be permanent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can warn others of certain dangers that only you can see on the horizon. Someone must make a firm decision; should it be you?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a friend can have a good deal of fun today, but you must make sure that it's not at the expense of a third party's feelings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can give others much that they need at this time, and you'll get something quite valuable in the exchange. Your reputation soars.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can maximize your gains today, but not everyone will appreciate either your methods or your motives. One critic in particular is quite vocal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must consider all possible outcomes today as you chart a course based on probability. Experience and instinct both serve you well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone makes you an offer today that you may be unable to refuse, but you must realize that much will change if you do accept it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can combine the old and the new in ways that impress others -- and someone in charge is likely to open a new door to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An accidental encounter proves more important to you today than you might have thought. What follows takes you down an unfamiliar road.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be putting too much emphasis on something that is really not important to anyone else but you. It's time to focus on something else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You need more than you think you do, and the special attention of a good friend or loved one provides it -- just in time. Show your gratitude.
