Born today, you are often the life of the party, the kind of individual who others want to emulate. You are a true original, however, and it is not likely that anyone will ever really be able to imitate you well; the "real you" is someone no one but yourself and perhaps one or two closest friends really understand. You are a force of nature, and others sum you up regularly as "larger than life" -- and indeed, you do embrace all that life has to offer. Whether at work or at play, you will jump into any new endeavor with zeal.
You enjoy the good things in life, and you must learn to manage your money with skill, or you are likely to spend far more than you make -- and that is, of course, a recipe for disaster. You are happiest when you are unrestricted by anything like a budget; you like to do what you want when you want, and with whom you want -- period!
Also born on this date are: Steve Perry, singer; Guy Fieri, TV personality and chef; Diane Lane, actress; Linda Blair, actress; John Hurt, actor; Steven Adler, drummer; Bill Bixby, actor; Francis Bacon, author and politician; Walter Raleigh, explorer; Piper Laurie, actress; Ann Sothern, actress; D.W. Griffith, director; August Strindberg, playwright.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You many find yourself in a place that affords you more than mere opportunity, but also the wherewithal to do what you came here to do!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Travel may be in the picture, but not if you're unwilling to prepare properly. Your planning must take any possible accidents into account.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll find yourself taking a stroll down memory lane today, surely, but it'll be a lot more fun if you take an old friend along as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's a good time for you to explore something you've avoided in the past. You discover that your tastes have changed -- and are still changing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something that has kept you away for quite some time brings you back home again today -- much to your surprise. A reunion is all but certain.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll find yourself in a place that satisfies your curiosity in many ways. What you learn can help you as you plan a new endeavor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not be able to do all that you had planned today, but if you prioritize, you'll find that the most important things can get done.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You mustn't leave too much to chance today, or you may find that you aren't able to keep up with a rival. Make a plan and stick to it!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll have much to observe today and much to reflect on -- especially if you let yourself go where someone else wants you to go.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can get more work done today than expected, especially if you allow yourself to be influenced by another. He or she ups the ante.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may get to enjoy the view from an entirely new perspective today, and you'll be inspired and energized as a result. What's the plan?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you want and what you need are, as expected, two very different things today. In a surprise development, you can have both.
