Born today, you are one of those highly original individuals who serves as a font of new ideas and concepts that can be beneficial to all those around you -- but especially those who are most intimately associated with you and your work. You think big thoughts, but you know how to express them in ways that are comprehensible by any average person -- and that is sure to work in your favor, especially when what you are trying to achieve is difficult and goals you are trying to reach prove elusive.
You are attractive, charismatic, energetic and blessed with a healthy sense of right and wrong as well as the ability to laugh at yourself whenever necessary -- and it is necessary more often than most people think!
Also born on this date are: Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and media mogul; Adam Lambert, singer; Tom Selleck, actor; Heather Graham, actress; Sara Gilbert, actress and producer; William McKinley, U.S. president.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There's no point in reacting to what someone does or says today, as he or she is trying to get a rise out of you -- and you know it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- That which is most easily recognizable may, in the end, prove least valuable. You want to set your sights on that which is harder to see.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A race against the clock pits you against someone who claims to know you better than you know yourself -- but in this case that's not possible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be able to meet a certain deadline today only if you avoid the kinds of distractions that prove most irresistible to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may well be able to undo that which is done today -- but you'll certainly want to get the input of someone who is only peripherally involved.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A close look at that which you've been seeking for quite some time may prove disappointing -- until you look at it from another angle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The advantage you worked so hard to secure may be slipping away today. You'll have to act fast if you're to regain the position you had before.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A problem is solved just as another is revealed today -- and it's likely to be like this, in one way or another, for several consecutive days.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be able to trust today's technology to help you get something finished and delivered on time. Do it the old-fashioned way!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A friend stands back and gives you free rein to do what you think needs to be done. Is he or she really trying to prove you can't do it?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be too eager to share something about yourself with someone you've only recently met. Fortunately, you're in no real danger.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your memory may play tricks with you today, but in your effort to get things in order, you'll likely discover a missing piece of the puzzle.
