Born today, you like to be in the thick of things when something new is going on, and to be at the vanguard of an important new movement or protest or celebration is, as far as you are concerned, what life is all about. You can become very frustrated when things progress in the same fashion day after day, month after month; you thrive on novelty -- but it's not the newness that really does it for you, but rather the combination of being new and important.
Your passions are very near the surface, and it can be said that at times you wear your heart on your sleeve. This can be dangerous, for you are often to be found dealing with people who do not agree either with your motives or your methods.
Also born on this date are: Betsy Ross, seamstress and American flag maker; Verne Troyer, actor; Xavier Cugat, bandleader; J.D. Salinger, author; Cat Cora, celebrity chef; J. Edgar Hoover, FBI director; Frank Langella, actor.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be called upon to step in today and provide one or two ideas that put the icing on a very well-built cake. Don't hold back.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you are trying to accomplish today may seem impossible to those who haven't tried it before. You can prove them all wrong.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll come to a more accurate understanding of someone's motives and methods today. You may wish to join forces very soon.
CANCER (June 12-July 22) -- You may have an "announcement" of sorts to make before you feel it is too late to do so. Don't miss out on this last opportunity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Get in touch with a friend today, and you'll very likely hear tales of adventure and success that inspire you to enjoy some of your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be in a transitional phase right now and unable to commit to something in a way a friend or loved one has requested.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can move very swiftly and smoothly from one line of endeavor to another today -- and your closest rivals won't know what happened!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can count on someone having your back today as you step out onto something of a high, narrow ledge. You'll be facing some fears head-on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's important for you to be charitable and generous today, as you'll almost surely be asking for help yourself before long.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't want to make any mistakes today where a friend's health or safety is concerned. You must do exactly what you signed on to do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your reaction to another's surprise announcement will tell others how to react as well. What they do after that is not your responsibility!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be showing signs of insecurity today -- but only to those who know you best. Your outward show of confidence can still work on others.
