Born today, you have a habit of stumbling into situations that turn out remarkably well for you, even though you may not always know what you are doing! Luck is a major factor in your success, but that isn't meant to discount the considerable level of skill that you bring to almost every endeavor. Timing, too, is likely to prove essential to you as you move through the world, for you are not the kind to do much planning; you simply go where your instincts tell you to go. You are young at heart, and even in your later years you are likely to be mistaken for one much younger than you really are. Your secret, of course, is enthusiasm.
You're likely to have your heart broken not once, not twice, but three or more times. Why? Because you love to fall in love, and you take it far too seriously at the outset without really thinking things through. This is a pattern of behavior that you simply cannot shake.
Also born on this date are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer; Lewis Carroll, author; Donna Reed, actress; Mimi Rogers, actress; Mikhail Baryshnikov, ballet dancer and actor; Francis Drake, explorer; Troy Donahue, actor; Alan Cumming, actor; Rosamund Pike, actress; Bridget Fonda, actress; John Roberts, chief justice of the Supreme Court; Jerome Kern, composer and songwriter; James Cromwell, actor.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A certain friend or partner is likely to communicate with you in an indirect manner today; you must be ready to decipher coded messages.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Once you get started today, you'll find it difficult to stop; your enthusiasm for the competition that is building will increase greatly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have more at stake today than you may have recognized. A friend holds the key to a mystery that must be solved before this day is out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care that you are not so independent today that you are unable to work with others when required to do so. You must get along.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Several ideas may have to be examined and dismissed today before you hit on one that can serve you and others well during this tricky time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Others are likely to join you in your efforts today. Take care that you don't try to take on too much, however; expectations must be realistic.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to find yourself in first place on at least one occasion today; are you able to turn that into a sustainable lead?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- That which is of most value to you isn't likely to translate to another, but this needn't result in any lasting rift, certainly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've made plans that can pay off handsomely, but not today, perhaps. There is something missing that is the key to the whole business.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to push back against someone who is demanding too much of you right now. Things must be kept fair and equal at all times.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Keep everything aboveboard today; any attempt to do something secretive is likely to backfire on you. Show and tell reveals much.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you try to do to a rival today is likely to be done to you in return -- and that is not something you are ready to deal with just yet.
