Born today, you are one of the great stalwarts of your sign, trustworthy, hardworking and always eager to do the right thing -- and capable of doing just that even when the situation promises nothing but hardship. There are those who would call you larger than life, and indeed, you go about your business with a kind of zeal that is quite rare, and when you arrive on the scene, everyone knows it.
You have what it takes to bring about real change -- but whether that is for the better or worse will be entirely up to you, and it's a decision that will have to be made at some time. It is likely your name will be long remembered, but whether you will be famous or infamous is not to be known early in your life; it's something you will determine in your maturity, for reasons that are entirely your own.
Also born on this date are: Ernest Borgnine, actor; John Belushi, actor and comedian; Neil Diamond, singer; Mary Lou Retton, Olympic gymnast; Matthew Lillard, actor; Sharon Tate, actress; Aaron Neville, singer; Edith Wharton, novelist.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Proceed with caution today, and don't let anyone tell you that things are not as you observe them to be. Your perceptions are correct.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can put in your two cents today without any risk of pushback. Those who really listen to you will certainly value what you say.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's time for you to take charge, perhaps -- but you mustn't do so without first making an honest appraisal of the situation that beckons.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to keep your opinions to yourself for a time today, as someone attempts something in a manner with which you don't agree.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's time to tell a loved one just what you think of certain aspects of your relationship -- and this includes both the positive and the negative.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who seeks your guidance is deserving of your full attention today. He or she will teach you something about your own capabilities.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone who has taken care of you in the past now needs your care, but this means you'll have to drop what you are doing and really commit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're seeking a certain something from someone in your inner circle, but you don't know how to ask for it directly. This causes a delay.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are in a better position today to know what has to be done than anyone else. Still, not everyone will follow your instructions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- That which is unpleasant can be dealt with early in the day, and that which you most enjoy can wait until you have time to indulge in it fully.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to conceal your true feelings for a time today while others work out a problem that was none of your doing. Your turn will come.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can engage with others with a great deal more energy than usual today, or at least you're likely to! A creative project nears completion.
