Born today, you are a deeply sensitive individual, and you respond to the entire world at large in an emotional, almost electrically charged fashion that shapes virtually everything you do in life. When dealing with both your professional affairs and your personal life, you apply all that you are to almost every situation, large or small. Nothing happens around you that you do not feel strongly about in some way; you find it impossible be neutral about anything!
You like to put things together and be both the planner of new projects and the one to bring them home when the time comes. You never like entrusting an idea to anyone else -- and you will surely have to work twice as hard at times to make sure the products of your vivid imagination come to fruition.
Also born on this date are: Elijah Wood, actor; Alan Alda, actor; Sarah McLachlan, singer and songwriter; Arthur Rubinstein, pianist; Kathryn Morris, actress; Frank Darabont, director; Nick Carter, singer.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can recognize quality when it presents itself to you, and today that ability will serve you well -- and the many who choose to ally with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must take care that your tone isn't too harsh or your manner too dismissive today. You have much to say, and you want to be heard!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's time for you to put a certain concept to bed and recognize that the way to do something right now is the most straightforward way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A problem arises that you can solve quickly -- provided you trust your own imagination and secure someone's permission right away.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are eager to hear what someone has to say in response to what you offer up today. You're expecting some pushback, but it may not come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have trouble explaining to a loved one just what is required today and how to get it done. You'll get resistance at first.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The difference between what is genuine and what is put on is going to be revealed to you in no uncertain terms by someone in your inner circle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not be sure that a certain thing is going to happen today, but every instinct tells you that it is so. That's good enough!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're going about a task in your own unique way -- and that's likely to impress someone who usually likes to stay within the lines.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be expecting a great deal from someone you know only so well -- but you're likely to be disappointed in a way that's hard to define.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can combine style and substance in a way that is uniquely your own -- though it may take some time for you to get the lay of the land.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You do not know precisely what will come at you today, but you are ready for almost anything. A peripheral event affects you in a strange way.
