Born today, you are likely to have a very important decision to make at some point in your life regarding your own notoriety. Will you welcome the attention of others as you make your way in the world, or will you choose to turn your back on potential audiences and live a life of quiet solitude? The choice is yours, and you must make it, for if you allow circumstances alone to make it for you, you will almost certainly regret it.
You are unusually sensitive, and you are not equipped with the ability to keep feelings at bay. You feel things deeply, and there may be times in which you feel you are being pushed this way and that by emotional currents that you cannot fully control. This can be dangerous, for at such times your essential self-determination may be seriously threatened.
Also born on this date are: Elvis Presley, singer and actor; Stephen Hawking, physicist; David Bowie, singer and actor; Bob Eubanks, game-show host; Yvette Mimieux, actress; Larry Storch, actor; Ron Moody, actor; Jose Ferrer, actor.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your assessment of certain developments today will make all the difference to those who don't know what to make of them. Tell the truth!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to do the very thing you have resisted for so long. In letting go of your fears and hesitation, you will make a breakthrough.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are not yet near your destination, but you may not be able to continue the journey today as planned, as other business calls to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be called home by someone who needs something that only you can provide. This is not a summons you want to ignore, by any means.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to review the numbers carefully today before submitting your proposal to the person whom you hope will give his or her approval.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to think carefully about the rules today and how they apply to you directly and indirectly. Can you follow them faithfully?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are eager to move mountains today, but you may only be able to do what anyone alone can do. The impossible may be done tomorrow perhaps!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though others are watching you closely, waiting for you to make a mistake, but you aren't about to satisfy their hopes!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll fit the final pieces of a puzzle into place today -- just in time to turn your attention to another that is far more complex.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can make things better or worse today, just by doing what comes easily. The real difference will be in doing what is hard.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make a deal with one who is usually immune to your offers and suggestions. What is it this time that makes things work in your favor?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your journey today will take you down one or two familiar roads -- and one, at least, that is entirely new to you. Keep your eyes open!
