Born today, you are one of the most motivated and forward-thinking individuals born under your sign. You never let prevailing circumstances get you down, even when those circumstances are negative in the extreme. You handle setbacks with such a healthy perspective that it is as if you never face them at all, but that is hardly the truth! You seem, at times, to seek out difficulty, not because you enjoy it, but because it's the surest way to evolve into a healthy, productive individual. As far as you are concerned, a difficult life is a life well-lived.
When it comes to relationships, you are not always as easygoing as you might be, and you often make things far more complicated than they have to be -- usually by being completely unaware of the situation in which you find yourself. You are rarely the "aggressive" partner in the evolution of a romantic partnership.
Also born on this date are: Junior Seau, football player; Thomas Kinkade, painter; Katey Sagal, actress; Robert Palmer, rocker; Cindy Sherman, photographer; Dolly Parton, singer; Janis Joplin, rocker; Michael Crawford, singer and actor; Tippi Hedren, actress; Jean Stapleton, actress; Paul Cezanne, artist; Edgar Allan Poe, author and poet; Robert E. Lee, general.
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.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to say goodbye to the old way of doing a certain something; today, you must be willing to progress and keep up with rivals.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your own personal evolution has been rapid of late, especially where personal relationships are concerned. Others respond favorably.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you say is not likely to be ignored by those who take offense; you can expect to be locked in a serious conflict by day's end.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A certain situation does not go as planned, but you can make adjustments and change your methods to maximize gains and minimize losses.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are eager to share certain memories with someone who knew you "back when" -- but he or she is likely to remember things quite differently.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You recently put yourself in a dangerous position, and today you may have to pay an unexpected price even though the danger has passed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have received help from someone who is now holding out his or her hand for payment. You can make an arrangement that benefits you both.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Cooperation may be in short supply today, so you must be ready to do certain key things on your own. Success is not out of reach, surely!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are waiting for something important to happen, when in fact that important something is likely to be done by you and you alone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can do for someone something you'd enjoy to have done for you in return -- and perhaps you can come to exactly that arrangement today!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Mind your manners today! You don't want to find yourself in a tough spot simply because you said something you shouldn't have said.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's far easier today than it was yesterday to put your best foot forward. You're likely to receive a great deal of unexpected support, too.
