Born today, you are always on the lookout for that next "big thing." Hope for the future and an eagerness to embrace it are a central part of your overall makeup. You must always acknowledge the danger of looking forever forward, in that there may be times in which you ignore the present, and that can be especially problematic when what you are doing right now is actually both enjoyable and profitable.
Luck is sure to play a major role as you shape your life and navigate the opportunities that are available to you at any given time -- and you must be willing to take advantage of whatever a moment gives you in order to make the most of it. You cannot want to do things only one way -- for that way may, at any given time, be unrealistic or even impossible.
Also born on this date are: Orlando Bloom, actor; Patrick Dempsey, actor; Trace Adkins, country singer; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress; Charles Nelson Reilly, actor; Robert Stack, actor; Penelope Ann Miller, actress; Sophie Tucker, vaudeville star.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being economical and efficient with both your time and your resources will enable you to achieve something memorable and lasting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your perception of a certain situation may differ from that of one who was directly involved. It's time to listen instead of talk.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may think you've been duped by one who's out to get you. This is a misperception that feels real enough, and as such, it requires attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to work harder than usual to fit a certain activity into the time available to you today. Keep distractions at bay.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to keep expenditures as low as possible today while seeking a personal advantage among co-workers. It's a tricky task!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not understand what is required of you today until you are in the thick of things. Be sure to take all available precautions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know what's affecting you most directly at this time, but you may not be able to reduce its effect. Instead, try making it work for you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Things may not look the same today as they did yesterday -- for the very good reason that they are very different in small, subtle ways.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Make no mistake -- you are the one who others will look to for explanations when things go awry. You must, therefore, keep them on track.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Plans must be made in a logical, linear fashion today. You've put enough creative energy into things lately; focus on the nuts and bolts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make something pay off today that fell flat only yesterday -- and all it takes is a willingness to admit your own recent errors.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Working closely with someone to gain a greater command of an overriding issue is the wise course. You can't afford any mistakes.
