Born today, you are rather mischievous, and you delight in doing things that raise eyebrows and even shock those who are charged with your care -- or anyone else in a position of some authority, for that matter. You are a natural game player, and it seems to others that you don't take things nearly as seriously as you should. This is a misperception, however, and results from the fact that you keep your true passions very much to yourself, sharing them only with those closest to you.
It's likely you will maintain a childlike view of life throughout your many years -- and it is not only important but essential to acknowledge the difference between childish and childlike. The former you eschew with all you've got; the latter you embrace just as fervently. There is a delightful innocence about you that you carry with you always.
Also born on this date are: Kid Rock, singer; Michelle Obama, U.S. first lady; Jim Carrey, actor and comedian; Susanna Hoffs, singer; Andy Kaufman, actor and comedian; Muhammad Ali, boxer; Maury Povich, TV talk show host; James Earl Jones, actor.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone's change of heart over the last 24 hours has you reassessing your situation. It's time to throw caution to the wind.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will want to employ a good amount of skepticism today as you listen to what others have to tell you. The truth is in there somewhere.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are waiting for more than one thing to happen today, but you can't expect everything to happen all at once. You must prioritize.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If all your ducks are in a row, then it's time to make that long-planned move, but if not, then you'll want to spend more time where you are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One promise is kept and another is broken today. All in all, you'll come out ahead -- but you're going to work at a high level of efficiency.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to get an invitation today that you've actually been eager to receive -- but you're not in a position to accept now, are you?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can make a great deal of headway today, even if you aren't working with specifics. Fantasy and reality coincide in a most unexpected manner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone gives you something you've wanted for quite a long time -- but is it all it's cracked up to be? You must judge realistically.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're afraid that trouble will descend upon you if you accept someone's unexpected proposal -- but do you have any other choice?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to put your foot down before someone decides to behave in a manner that is in sync with your needs and desires. You must be firm!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble climbing that first mountain today, but from there, you'll get the lay of the land and all else should be easier.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've set your sights on something that is currently out of reach -- but that shouldn't be a permanent situation. Start making a plan.
