Born today, you are a smart, clever and flexible individual, able to adapt to changing circumstances and make your way even when the environment is anything but favorable. Despite your ability to go with the flow, you are not one to abandon your principles simply because it will make the road ahead easier to navigate; on that score -- and perhaps that one alone -- you are actually quite inflexible, but this wins you a great deal of admiration and support.
You are likely to fall in love at a tender age -- but will that love be requited, and if so, will it last a lifetime? The stars do not offer clear answers here, but you can surely work the odds if you so choose and enjoy a long and fruitful relationship with your soul partner -- provided he or she knows that they're "the one" -- and that, of course, is entirely up to you!
Also born on this date are: Mary J. Blige, actress; Alexander Hamilton, U.S. statesman; Naomi Judd, singer; Amanda Peet, actress; Rod Taylor, actor; William James, author and educator; Alyson Reed, actress; Joel Zwick, filmmaker.
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.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The conventional isn't likely to interest you today. If you jump into a new and unusual situation willingly, take necessary precautions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others will recognize in you a strength that you do not yet know you possess -- but by the end of the day, you're likely to have a clue.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A peaceful approach to a potentially volatile situation can keep you and yours from getting tangled up in something you can't get out of.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This is a good day to clean up, straighten up, economize, streamline and otherwise tend to your immediate environment. A project soon begins.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which compels others to do things that are not in their best interests are of no interest to you to begin with -- and that's an advantage!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have more in store for those on your team than anyone might suspect, but you must resist the temptation to drop hints prematurely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The unwise has already been proven, but the wise decision may still elude you. It's time to take someone's advice -- whether or not you like it!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be putting someone at risk unknowingly today. Stop what you are doing and assess the situation honestly; a change can be made.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Warnings come from all quarters today -- but there's only one that really speaks to you, and it's likely to bring about a change in behavior.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be able to do most things your way today -- but not everything. Make sure you cooperate with others with a smile on your face.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be juggling conflicting sentiments throughout much of the day -- but yours are more difficult to deal with than another's.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be endangering yourself or someone else by continuing along your course of action. A quick, small change can save the day.
