Born today, you shun the routine and thrive on that which is surprising and controversial, and you will try to surround yourself with people who feel the same way. You have little in common with those who blindly follow the rules; you would rather have things difficult if it means doing things your own way. Your independence is precious to you, and you will never do anything to put yourself under another's spell; you always want to call the shots and shape your life according to your rules.
You have a wicked sense of humor and know how to cut to the quick with the turn of a phrase. You must take care, however, or you may find that your wit can quickly backfire on you and make you the butt of everyone else's jokes! You have big dreams and will do all you can to make them come true.
Also born on this date are: Rainn Wilson, actor; Bill Maher, comedian; Paul Stanley, rocker; David Lynch, director; Buzz Aldrin, astronaut; Patricia Neal, actress; Federico Fellini, filmmaker; DeForest Kelley, actor; George Burns, actor and comic.
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 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are eager to prove that your position has been the right one all along, but there may not be any empirical proof just yet.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can keep going and get much done today, despite the fact that many of those around you are pulling up short. Energy and inspiration are high.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can win a memorable victory today, though ultimately the rewards may not match the memory of it when all is said and done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you are trying to accomplish may not be possible today, but the harder you work the closer you will get to your desired destination.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to spend too much today, especially since you are facing a situation that may drain you of key resources very soon.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to rub others the wrong way -- not today, at any rate, where the cost for such behavior can be unusually high.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Are you willing to let someone else take control today? He or she can probably lead you and others better than you can for now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can learn a great deal by keeping your mouth closed and your ears open. You may have to wait to make a lasting contribution.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can tell stories that inspire others today, and they don't have to be true. What they must be, however, is immediately pertinent!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can close the book on one project today while getting geared up to start another. You know when it's time for something to end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to accept a situation that is far from favorable, if only to prevail in a contest in which the stakes are unusually high.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your attitude today may not be conducive to the kind of teamwork in which others are expecting to engage. Can you adjust in time?
