Born today, you do not subscribe to the kinds of traditional roles that others do. You know that to follow your own instincts and ignore the dictates of society is to allow yourself to blossom fully and to be as content as possible. You are never one to listen to those who insist on telling you what you "should" do; rather, you do only that which seems likely to give you strength and status. Indeed, you may be far too concerned with how you look in the eyes of others -- which is an interesting paradox, surely! You don't care what others say about you, but you want them always to see you for who you are.
Your personal relationships may be marred by an inability to put anyone else in the leading role in your life. It's not so much that this is a negative thing, but rather something that others aren't likely to understand or be willing to accommodate. You will always come first, and those who interact with you must recognize and accept this.
Also born on this date are: Alicia Keys, singer; Patrick Willis, football player; Robert Burns, poet; Virginia Woolf, writer; Dean Jones, actor; Tobe Hooper, director; Corazon Aquino, Philippine president; Edwin Newman, TV newsman.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A little extra study goes a long way today. You want to know more than the basics -- and the more you know, the more you can accomplish.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Domestic affairs take on a new quality today; this may be subtle, but it will surely be significant. Others try to catch up.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can silence your critics today with one simple maneuver. You must understand, however, that this is likely to work only once!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be considering a change in tactics, but today is not the day to shake things up. Do what you know how to do best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your enthusiasm is generally high, but certain events today may cause it to wane somewhat. You'll recover later on, surely.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's never too late to make a change that increases efficiency and productivity. Do you know what that is, however? Can it be made today?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It may be more difficult than expected to get going today, but once you do you can count on momentum to keep you going. Plans are solid.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The pace is likely to increase throughout much of the day; you cannot afford to be sidelined. Overlook nothing as you study the landscape.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be the only person to enjoy an unobstructed view of what lies ahead today. Share what you see with those around you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Something that has been quite slow to emerge is likely to mature very quickly today and affect you fully before nightfall. Make preparations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are keen on any idea that benefits many, rather than only a few. Today, such ideas may come to you very quickly indeed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may choose to begin with the most difficult of tasks today; there are benefits to such a plan -- but it is surely a double-edged sword.
