Born today, you are often able to walk that fine line between what you know to be good and what you know to be bad, and your life is a continual exercise in leaning as far as you can one way or the other without falling over. The reason for this is that you recognize that life is not black and white, so you commit to nothing 100 percent and are always ready to turn around and go the other way. Others may find this troubling, but that concerns you very little; you can remain strong even when others are against you.
A life in politics would make sense for you -- at least in the minds of others who see you as vacillating and inconsistent. It's likely not the career for you, however; you want to have things entirely your way in any given moment, whether that is up, down, right or left. You work best on your own; collaboration does not come naturally to you.
Also born on this date are: Ellen DeGeneres, comedian and TV host; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Eddie Van Halen, musician and songwriter; Paul Newman, actor; Anita Baker, singer; Douglas MacArthur, U.S. military leader; Gene Siskel, film critic; Christopher Hampton, playwright and screenwriter; Jules Feiffer, cartoonist.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Change is in the wind, and you must be ready for it whether you are directly affected or not. Someone offers you an unusual choice today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not going to give away all your secrets today, but in one case at least you're perfectly willing to reveal your "trick."
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- As the time passes today, you'll become more aware of what you have yet to do. There's no reason why you cannot pick up the pace.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may discover that something is not working quite right for you, while it serves someone else perfectly. You must determine why.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must leave no stone unturned today as you search for the cause of something that you will be dealing with for quite some time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Exploration of new and unfamiliar territory leads to a few important discoveries about yourself and about someone very close to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are expecting things to turn out a certain way, of course, but you must be ready to deal with things that turn out quite differently as well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may think you are running out of ideas, but you're simply going through a quiet phase in anticipation of increased creativity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your behavior may not win the approval of those in charge today, but neither is it so objectionable that you'll be ordered to stop.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be faced with a lack of continuity today; be ready to deal with things in a seemingly random manner. Nightfall brings some answers.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A difficult situation requires more than a cursory examination; look at it closely, and from as many different angles as possible.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be in the mood for what you know is coming today -- but if you adjust your attitude a little, you'll be able to face it head-on.
