Born today, you are destined to be remembered not just for what you do -- though what you do will surely be memorable -- but more for who you are -- and in many ways who you are is unlike anyone else born under your sign. Your style is vibrant and eclectic; you do not subscribe to one way of dressing, of speaking or of behaving. You do what you will regardless of the norms and mores that guide most others.
You are quite astute and keenly aware of what makes other people tick, and you can be highly critical of those who do not, for whatever reason, bear their share of any given responsibility. You have little use for those who do not, or cannot, come through as you do, and you spend little energy thinking about things that do not interest you.
Also born on this date are: Ellen Degeneres, comedian, actress and TV host; Wayne Gretzky, hockey player; Paul Newman, actor; Anita Baker, singer; Gene Siskel, film critic; Jules Feiffer, cartoonist and playwright.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your belief system holds you in good stead today, as others find themselves challenged. It's a good day to reconfigure certain plans.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The more you are willing to do for another today, the more you will receive in return. That arithmetic works, as long as you're willing and able.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good time for you to lie low if you can. A certain responsibility is lifted for a time. Be thankful for a surprise turn of events.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll impress others with your history of success, but someone may be more interested in why a certain project never got off the ground.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to explain yourself today -- and that's not going to be easy when you don't really know yet why you're in this position.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A challenge comes your way today, but it's nothing you haven't dealt with before -- and quite successfully. A rival misjudges you temporarily.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your creative energy is on the rise, and you're eager to get your hands on something that will allow you to shine. A friend has your back.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Take a look at where you've been, and you'll realize that everything you've done has led you to where you are right now. Enjoy the view!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your efforts today may go unnoticed, but you're not in it for recognition. You are confident in the value of your contribution.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are feeling the effects of an event you had little control over. You must be willing to let bygones be bygones. Hold no grudges.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Use your initiative today to get things done that no one thought were possible. This is the start of a highly creative phase.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A reaction from a friend throws you off-kilter for a time today. You never expected that he or she would take a certain stand.
