Born today, you were born to go where no one has gone before, and even from an early age you will be one of the most adventurous -- and at times even foolhardy -- members of your circle of friends and companions. When young, you were no doubt a worry to your parents or guardians and their friends, who looked upon you with concern as you charged headlong again and again into situations they feared were too much for you.
You may never be able to decide once and for all if you are meant for a lasting and loving central relationship or, instead, for a life of solitary exploration that leads to fleeting romances and the occasional heartbreak. You have a hunch that something steady and reliable is "healthier" for you -- and so it is -- but whether you can commit to such a relationship may always be in question.
Also born on this date are: Rainn Wilson, actor; Bill Maher, commentator, comedian, TV host; Paul Stanley, rocker; David Lynch, director; Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, astronaut; Patricia Neal, actress; Federico Fellini, filmmaker.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may feel as though you are somehow behind the times, but in fact, you know much more about the way things are -- or should be -- than others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your methods will not be questioned today, but your motives may be scrutinized by those who have never really understood what you're about.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It'll be up to you today to get yourself out of a sticky situation -- but that's only fair, since you were the one who got you into it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Distractions are all around you today, but you can stay the course and accomplish all that you want to simply by remembering what really matters.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your competence is understood by all those around you -- and indeed, almost taken for granted. You, however, may harbor certain doubts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is the time for you to prove that you are dealing only in the truth and nothing but the truth. Even your rivals will recognize what's what.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to fool a friend in order to win the advantage over an enemy today -- but all will be forgiven in the end. A gift is given.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to take more time than usual today to do something that someone else can do in no time flat. But you do it better, surely!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Approach your responsibilities one at a time if you can today, and you'll most probably take care of them with time to spare.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Avoidance is not going to work for you today, as it will only result in your deep immersion in the very problems you want to avoid.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make a good point just in time today, and afterward, everything is likely to go your way -- at least for a while. Enjoy this moment!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you know best can be shared with others today in order to improve the group's chances for success. You mustn't keep secrets just now.
