Born today, you have an unusual ability to be both subjective and objective about the same things, and the bigger the issue, the more you will be able to swing between "feeling" and "thinking." When your subjective side is in dominance, you immerse yourself deeply in all manner of events and issues almost without any regard for your own safety or well-being-- and yet, when the objective side overtakes it, you are aware of the dangers that lie before you and are able to make decisions that keep you from exposing yourself too much or rendering yourself too vulnerable to all types of threats.
You have a great deal of creative energy, and a few unusual talents that are likely to reveal themselves at just the right moment in your life -- which will allow you to make the kinds of decisions that almost ensure success.
Also born on this date are: Diane Keaton, actress; Suzy Amis, actress and environmental advocate; Pamela Sue Martin, actress; Jean Dixon, psychic; Marilyn Manson, rocker; Juan Carlos, king of Spain; Walter Mondale, politician; Zebulon Pike, explorer.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What's good for the goose is good for the gander -- or so you've always heard. Today's events prove the adage true in more ways than one.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The change you are trying to effect must start with you -- and today you can get the ball rolling by doing all the right things, and then some.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to stand up to someone in authority today in order to persuade those around you that the issues you've raised are valid.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You needn't be rebellious today in order to point out something that's not right or just; all you have to do is stick to what you know best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The rules may be changing, and today you may not know what to do in order to fit in as you usually do. Perhaps others must get used to you first.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Keep things simple today, and avoid the temptation to throw more resources at a project that can be completed in an economical fashion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be taking things a bit too personally at this time. Go to a friend and ask for his or her honest opinion -- and adjust accordingly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your attitude may not be helping where a tricky situation is concerned -- and in fact, you are very likely making things worse. Cut it out!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which is most worth your time and attention may not give you what you expect from it today. Stick with it and that will change.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be compelled to challenge even those you know are correct. This is about something you've not yet aired -- but you must very soon!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll have at least one opportunity today to demonstrate just how much you know about a certain subject; don't let it pass you by!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're interested in leveling the playing field at this time, but to do so, you're going to have to get others to make key adjustments.
