Born today, you are certainly an original, but you're not the kind to go about announcing it to the world. Rather, you would prefer to go about your business in a quiet, unassuming manner and let your work speak for you -- for nothing, as far as you are concerned, is a better demonstration of your capabilities than the many accomplishments you score throughout your lifetime. Like so many Capricorn natives, you have a quirky side, and you don't always fit into the kinds of "boxes" that others think you should.
What you do is likely to be long remembered, if not for its import than for its entertainment value -- for you are nothing if not entertaining! You don't always mean to be, and sometimes others will poke fun at you when you are trying to be very serious, but overall you accept the fact that others derive a great deal of enjoyment from you, whether or not it's intentional.
Also born on this date are: Betsy Ross, seamstress and American flag maker; Verne Troyer, actor; Xavier Cugat, bandleader; J.D. Salinger, author; Cat Cora, celebrity chef; J. Edgar Hoover, FBI director; Frank Langella, actor.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find that the position you are currently in will not allow you to procrastinate -- and indeed, being early can count for much!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A rival expresses admiration for an idea you've been working with for some time now. Today you might consider joining forces.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's no reason to think today that the words of encouragement you've been receiving are meant in any way other than to be encouraging!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must meet a certain deadline today, but as you work toward that important goal, you'll realize one or two others can also be reached.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not believe in ghosts, and yet today you're going to have to deal with something from your past that has come back to haunt you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll receive valuable support today from a friend who has been on the sidelines for a while. Together you can maximize personal rewards.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not believe what someone tells you today -- but your own investigation uncovers evidence that supports his or her claims.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- This is just the beginning of something you'll long remember. As you get started today, you must be willing to relinquish control for a time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have a hard time today choosing between tangible rewards and something that is much more important to your emotional well-being.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Are you aware that you're flirting with danger at this time? Those who know you well are concerned that you're only fooling yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know which way you're going, but you don't necessarily know why -- but that piece of the puzzle can be supplied by a good friend.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Money matters come to the fore -- but not as expected. You may have some running around to do today to get all key issues straightened out.
