Born today, you are the kind of person who can get things done, surely -- and often things that no one else is able to do. Much depends, however, upon how you begin: Make a strong start and you can make your dreams come true, but dilly-dally, delay and vacillate and you are sure to disappoint yourself and those around you who are depending on you.
You are quite adept at making plans and seeing them through -- but sometimes you will want to let others take an idea and run with it. You are a born administrator, and though you don't enjoy the busywork that such a role requires, you do enjoy occupying the chair at the head of any table, making the decisions and guiding others to success.
Also born on this date are: Orlando Bloom, actor; Patrick Dempsey, actor; Trace Adkins, country singer; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress; Charles Nelson Reilly, actor; Robert Stack, actor; Penelope Ann Miller, actress; Sophie Tucker, vaudeville star.
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.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your luck is likely to improve somewhat today, though someone else may be the beneficiary. Your gains will be made on another day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The road ahead is long, but you know how to navigate the twists and turns. Someone else can learn from you as you prepare for the journey.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Troubles you'd put behind you some time ago are likely to resurface today, but not in the way you may have feared; you can avoid reliving them.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be able to pick up the pace today without risking any of the good work that lies ahead. You're in the groove and ready for more.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Physical or emotional ills needn't hold you back today. You can move forward even while dealing with personal situations that are not ideal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Things are likely to make more sense when you've had a chance to reflect on them -- and that won't be until after dark, most likely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone comes to you with a special request, perhaps -- and you're in a position to grant it, provided you aren't going to lose any sleep over it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The difference between "seems" and "is" may be a mystery to you today, until someone unearths proof of something that is a sure thing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are moving closer to someone who has been only a peripheral part of your life in the past. Things take on a whole new meaning.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have a little more energy today than you did yesterday perhaps, but you may not know until late in the day what to do with it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can thwart someone who wishes to derail you today -- though long-term effects may not be seen right away. Someone lends you a hand.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It may be time for you to step away from a job that has been taking up far too much of your time. What comes next? A friend has an idea!
