Born today, you are a highly creative individual, but it's not likely you will channel your creativity into the "normal" activities and occupations that people like you so often choose. Indeed, from an early age you're likely to eschew the common choice and intentionally move in unusual directions, doing things that are unconventional and even controversial. It may be said by some that your parents are -- or were -- far too tolerant of your unusual choices and practices, but in fact it is their acceptance of your apparent eccentricities that is to thank, ultimately, for your ultimate success.
You like to go where no one has gone before, and your adventurous spirit is sure to lead you into one exciting endeavor after another -- and you mustn't expect others to follow in your footsteps, for often what you have done is simply too unusual, or too frightening, for others to attempt.
Also born on this date are: Rainn Wilson, actor; Bill Maher, commentator, comedian, TV host; Paul Stanley, rocker; David Lynch, director; Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, astronaut; Patricia Neal, actress; Federico Fellini, filmmaker.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Show another how certain things are done today; you'll benefit from a timely "review." Give someone you know a second chance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be granted the benefit of the doubt today, and you can return the favor very soon. Something may be developing behind the scenes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll enjoy the chance to show off certain skills today. Don't make the mistake of thinking that you are infallible -- for no one is, surely!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can combine business and pleasure in a most creative way today. A loved one adds some spice to an endeavor that is otherwise routine.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- How you share your ideas is perhaps even more important today than the ideas themselves. You want to make the best possible impression.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which was certain only yesterday is likely to be something of a crapshoot today. That's going to happen these days if you procrastinate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Why not tend to assigned duties as soon as they are assigned? Waiting for just the right moment will surely get you into hot water today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be struggling to satisfy two very different needs at this time -- but today that struggle is eased by a friend who knows you well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Give-and-take provides you with an opportunity to advance your agenda in a way you had not anticipated. Things go both ways all day long.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Beginnings and endings may be difficult today, but the "in-betweens" should provide you with a welcome respite from extra effort.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Forgiveness may be easier to get than permission -- but is that really how you want to play this round? There are tricky dynamics at work today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have less to do today when all is said and done -- but that doesn't mean things will be easier. Complications must be addressed.
