Born today, you are destined to be one of the most influential individuals born under your sign, and yet at the same time you are able to fly under the radar better than most and do a great deal -- for yourself and others -- without attracting very much attention, if any at all. This can give you a certain key advantage in all manner of endeavors, for there are certainly times in which going unnoticed will allow you to achieve much while risking very little.
You're likely to accomplish much in your lifetime that has not been accomplished before, but novelty itself is not the point. Rather, you work toward achieving that which has an impact, which makes a difference, which can change things for the better -- and if it's something entirely new, so be it.
Also born on this date are: Julia Ormond, actress; Michael Stipe, singer; Dyan Cannon, actress; Don Shula, football coach; Jane Wyman, actress; Sterling Holloway, actor; Charles "General Tom Thumb" Stratton, circus performer.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're going to have to cut through a good deal of ambiguity today before you arrive at what you think a certain message really means.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Any overreaction on your part can make things difficult for those who are trying to go it alone. Be supportive or get out of the way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are discovering much about yourself at this time that you can put to good use -- but today, you may be stumped by someone's revelation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in for more than you bargained for, perhaps, so be ready to put in a little extra effort -- especially as midday gives way to afternoon.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be very close to making a mistake that is a permanent blot on your very good record. Stop and think about what is at stake right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are looking for an answer to a puzzle today that is, in fact, right in front of you -- but it is in a form that you do not expect.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The more you try to cover your tracks today, the more others will be onto you at every corner. What you do must be done out in the open.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be invited to join a project that is already underway. Don't think you've missed out on something; think about what lies ahead!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're sure to have to adjust your plans as you put them in motion today, but you mustn't lose sight of what you're really trying to do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are capable of dealing with more than what those around you bring to you, but the search for solutions leads you down an unexpected path.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The plans you make today will look good on paper, but before you put them in motion, you're going to have to make significant changes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be in a position to approve of someone's ideas today, but his or her intentions are not something you can trifle with in any sense.
