Born today, you are a capable and collaborative individual -- and this reflects a certain brand of confidence that you are often too eager to put on display. And why is that? The fact is that you harbor some tremendous insecurities and doubts that you can only keep at bay by saying and doing the kinds of things that only someone who is not at all insecure or doubtful would say and do.
You're not likely to identify your perfect niche until well into your maturity. When young you will almost certainly experiment a great deal -- at times even to the point of bringing danger to yourself or others. Eventually you will realize, however, that who you are is your greatest single asset -- and you will parlay that into some sort of resounding success.
Also born on this date are: Howard Stern, radio personality; Kirstie Alley, actress; Joe Frazier, boxer; Jack London, author; Tex Ritter, singing cowboy; Oliver Platt, actor; Joe E. Lewis, singer and comedian.

MONDAY, JANUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may think there is little for you to do today but watch the world go by, but you'll have the chance to take part before you know it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are looking forward to something scheduled for late in the day, but before you get there, you must do something you've long been afraid of.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't stand by and let others misinterpret either your words or your actions today. If that happens, you'll have many fires to put out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're facing a major hazard today, but by joining forces with someone, you can avoid a disaster. This happens in the nick of time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to step in and insist that others change their ways -- or else. While this will be an ultimatum, you can put it in positive terms.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can do what anyone else can do -- or so you've been taught. Today the truth of that lesson is likely to be demonstrated in no uncertain terms.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others swing into your orbit as a matter of course today, and while this is a positive development overall, you must work out some kinks.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A journey you take today doesn't end the way you might expect. You must submit an accurate report when asked to do so.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can pull things together and inspire others to perform well above par today. Your own success is all but guaranteed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you do to save another's reputation today is likely to be the stuff of legend eventually -- but some may criticize you at first.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to emulate someone who works at a level you would like to attain. Very soon you will have cause to celebrate a major success.
