Born today, you are never one to concern yourself with only one part of an issue; rather, you always jump in and immerse yourself in what is going on, grappling with every aspect of what is most important to you and those around you. You enjoy making connections between this, that and the other thing and coming up with new conclusions based on your thinking and learning -- and you look upon life as something of a puzzle to be solved rather than a journey to be taken.
You can at times be rather secretive -- which is ironic, since you always long to know as much as you can about other people, especially those in your inner circle.
Also born on this date are: Phil Collins, singer, songwriter and musician; Christian Bale, actor; Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dick Martin, actor, director and comedian; Gene Hackman, actor.
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.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be ready to absorb a little discomfort today as you tend to a troubling situation that was not of your making. Be strong!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not get an immediate response to a certain query today -- but that will give you time to prepare for several possibilities.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to take one step backward early in the day in order to take two steps forward later on -- but this is nothing out of the ordinary.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The specifics of a certain situation trouble you more today than the overall situation itself. You are best to work on it from the inside out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are far more passionate about a certain project than anyone else on your team -- but that doesn't mean you must bear every burden yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A problem solved today is one more you don't have to address tomorrow -- so why wait? Even a partial solution puts you ahead of the game for now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you do for entertainment's sake is likely to be far more important to others -- and this is something you must come to understand!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You have a sense of what's to come, but no specific knowledge to back it up. You'll have to wait, then, for others to jump on the bandwagon.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The time has come for you to stop reacting to what is happening to you and start doing something about it. What's really holding you back?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know full well what's likely to happen to you if you continue along your current course -- but is that really what you want?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're going to have to work quickly today to get past a certain obstacle that threatens to derail you completely. Trust a friend.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Undoing something that a friend or partner worked long and hard on may prove distressing -- but you'll also find that it's necessary.
