Born today, you have a habit of remaining unseen until the time is just right for you to burst into view and do what needs to be done in your own inimitable style. You are likely to cultivate an image of the "hero," and again and again you will seem to orchestrate situations that allow you to ride in and save the day in one way or another.
You don't always treat yourself with the same care and consideration with which you treat others, which is something of a mystery. Why is it that you sometimes are the last person you think about when it comes to health and well-being? Remember, you cannot do wonderful things for others unless you are in tip-top condition -- and that takes work!
Also born on this date are: Diane Keaton, actress; Suzy Amis, actress and environmental advocate; Pamela Sue Martin, actress; Jean Dixon, psychic; Marilyn Manson, rocker; Juan Carlos, king of Spain; Walter Mondale, politician; Zebulon Pike, explorer.
MONDAY, JANUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Collaboration with someone who is full of ideas can go very well today -- until you realize you're being counted on for a bit too much.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to explain yourself after sharing what you think you know with others. The facts are the facts, no matter how you interpret them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Lean on others today for support if you must, but don't do anything that isn't true to your inner self. You're nearing a pivotal crossroads.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The news you get from family members may have you wondering if you should drop what you are doing and get back home. Is that realistic?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do only so much today, despite what you have promised. Certain situations may arise that allow you to adjust your commitment just a bit.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are as enthusiastic as anyone about what you think is coming your way, but an unexpected twist has you rethinking your true purpose.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have a chance to show off in a new and different way, perhaps, and the prospect has you thinking that a turnaround will soon be possible.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though you have let someone down, but in truth you've done all you can do. It's yourself who needs some counsel, perhaps.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to split your time today between something going on at home and something just as important happening far away.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Scheduling questions will almost surely arise today, but you can take advantage of someone else's "time off" if you require assistance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- That which is obvious isn't worth your attention today. It's the more mysterious and opaque that you will want to explore fully if you can.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager for more support, and you may certainly have it -- but you're going to have to work on your overall attitude a bit first.
