Born today, you never let "reality" get you down or restrict you in any way. You are far more willing than most to jump into a new situation without any kind of preconceived notions, as you are very confident that you will learn what you need to know quickly. You are perhaps more of a follower than a leader, but when required you can step to the front of the line and guide others to their chosen destination; it's just not something that comes as naturally to you as it might to another. You are always enthusiastic about a friend's efforts and offer encouragement at every turn.
There is something of the hero in your nature, for you will step up and do remarkable things in the most unusual situations -- often without being called upon to do so. You don't require any sort of reward or recognition for such derring-do, of course, and you always revert quickly to your habitual supporting role.
Also born on this date are: Ernest Borgnine, actor; John Belushi, actor and comedian; Neil Diamond, singer; Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gymnast; Sharon Tate, actress; Aaron Neville, singer; Warren Zevon, singer and songwriter; Maria Tallchief, ballerina; Nastassja Kinski, actress; Edith Wharton, novelist.
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.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your schedule is already quite full, but you'll want to make room for just one more activity today that can win you unexpected gains.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Are you feeling like the "odd man out" today? You can do something to improve your situation considerably, but not everyone may approve.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can get a good deal done today while you wait patiently to learn what you will be expected to do tomorrow. You have a hunch what it is.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a rival may be testing each other in a way that can turn out very well for you, and not so well for him. That's the way it goes!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your contentment is wrapped up with someone else's today, and there's little you can do to change that situation; rather, make it work for you!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been letting someone else hold you back for too long; today, it's time for you to explore options that were not available only yesterday.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can bet that the truth will be revealed today just in time. You must be ready to swing into action when a certain mystery is solved.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do much to assist someone else who is working hard to put things into place as required. The rules seem to suit you right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are content to be in the background for a while today, but you must be ready to take center stage when given the opportunity.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must not only know what tools are available to you, but you must also know how to use them. It's time for you to learn quickly!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Others are likely to drift into your orbit today, though for reasons you are not likely to understand at first. Later, it all makes sense.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know what's fast approaching, and you're able to prepare for it -- but you may not be able to help a friend in the time available.
