Born today, you are a natural ringleader, the type who enjoys inspiring others and leading them toward new and better things. You are strong-willed and always able to face the challenges that come your way; indeed, you prefer having something to do, for when you are left to your own devices, you can sometimes sink into a kind of depression. You have faith in the consistency of human nature; you do not consider yourself to be optimistic or pessimistic, but rather realistic. You are rarely if ever surprised by what happens in any given day; it all seems to make sense to you.
You do have your secrets, and when gripped by your darker moods, you can be rather self-indulgent and throw caution to the winds. This makes you vulnerable to dangers from which you would otherwise protect yourself.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Trainor, actor; Emma Bunton, singer; Geena Davis, actress; Mac Davis, actor and singer; Hakeem Olajuwon, basketball player; Jack Nicklaus, golfer; Stonewall Jackson, Confederate general; Benny Hill, comedian; Billy Ocean, singer; Placido Domingo, operatic tenor; Wolfman Jack, radio DJ; Robby Benson, actor; Telly Savalas, actor; Christian Dior, fashion designer; Charles V, king of France; Ethan Allen, patriot.
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 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can settle into a more relaxing mode of behavior today, even though others are up in arms about a surprise development.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must tend to business in a way that satisfies your need for accomplishment and your desire for novelty. You can have both today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be facing a deadline of sorts, and you mustn't let anyone distract you as time slips by. Get to work and get it done ahead of schedule!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone you know only casually is doing things that pique your interest; you may want to get to know him or her better right now!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good time to exchange information freely, and you can do so without any suspicion that someone is trying to take advantage.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your opinions may not be shared by others, but you needn't consider changing your mind unless you are presented with certain evidence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you think you know and what you know are two very different things, but today you'll find a way to come to terms with both.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you do today is likely to have a lasting effect on those around you, so you must consider their well-being from the outset.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Something that you enjoyed only yesterday may leave you unimpressed today, but that's because you are currently in flux yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be largely responsible for someone else's success today -- or, at the very least, you are the one to make it all possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can enjoy something new and something old, and by taking advantage of prevailing circumstances, you can combine them creatively.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be completely satisfied with how you address a challenge today, but you must be willing to acknowledge a certain level of success.
