Born today, you are not one to turn your back on any wrong or injustice, and when you come into your own, you will almost certainly find a way to fight against such things -- not only in your life, but in the lives of others as well. You are never more content than when you have embraced a cause and are working for the betterment of those around you.
You know you are not perfect, and you actually try to study your imperfections at regular intervals -- not so much to eliminate them as to learn to use them to your advantage. You believe that all traits can be positive with a little work -- and so you try to prove it by letting your own vulnerabilities pay off for you in unusual ways again and again.
Also born on this date are: Chad Lowe, actor; Charo, singer, actress, entertainer; Margaret O'Brien, actress; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., civil rights activist; Lloyd Bridges, actor; Gene Krupa, musician.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Perhaps you catch a glimpse of what things can be like if you simply improve your attitude only slightly. Yeah, this is up to you!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A promise comes to you out of the blue today, and you'll want to consider it closely before putting your eggs into that particular basket.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The unexpected is not for you today; you want to know what's coming so you can plan your responses. You're in no mood to improvise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be expected to do business today in a way that doesn't come naturally to you -- but you can fake it long enough to make real progress.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You won't be going very far today, and yet it may seem as though the emotional journey you take is long indeed. You can't avoid self-examination.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Another's needs may take precedence over your own today, but only long enough for you to do what you have promised. Your turn is coming.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you offer your team is something more than stability. Everyone around you is likely to respond quite well to your "new" style of communicating.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be accused of making a mountain out of a molehill today -- and indeed, the issues you are addressing are very important to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If you find yourself waiting longer than expected for anything today, don't just sit there! You know how to use the time to your advantage.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone is making you wait, and you've just about had enough of it. You know how to stop this inconsiderate cycle with just a word or two.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Consider how long it will take to get from here to there when making a plan with a friend. You don't always have a good grasp of distances!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll enjoy a certain rare success today, but that doesn't mean you want to consider doing whatever it is you did. It's no fun!
