Born today, you are not one to put intellectual pursuits above those endeavors that require emotional commitment, for you are "all heart," and do everything in a manner that eschews logic for instinct and those "special feelings" that you get about people and things that you trust far more than anything your mind might tell you.
There are times when you may find yourself facing far more than any one person should have to handle at any one time, and yet you are able to acquit yourself in such situations, for you can apply both talent and commitment to the completion of even the most difficult task, or combination of tasks. You're no stranger to hardship, and you know how to play -- and work -- to win.
Also born on this date are: Albert Pujols, baseball player; Aaliyah, singer; Sade, singer; Debbie Allen, actress, dancer, choreographer; Dizzy Dean, baseball player; Ethel Merman, singer, actress, entertainer; Max Joseph, filmmaker and television host.
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.
MONDAY, JANUARY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your priorities do not match those of a loved one, but working together, you can ensure that both of you are satisfied by day's end.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to travel some distance today to fulfill a "bucket list" desire. This could be premature, but there's certainly no harm in that.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not be able to concentrate on what you have to do today because of something you are told early in the day. Work this out!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may want to cancel something tomorrow because, for reasons you're not willing to share, you cannot give it the attention it requires.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Fact and fiction make themselves known in an unusual way today, and this works out well for you as you must discern one from the other.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone makes a move that pushes you into a defensive posture -- but by day's end, you'll be able to take the offensive initiative once more.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to arrange something through long-distance channels today, but your communication skills will serve you quite well in this.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Information comes your way today that stops you in your tracks, perhaps -- but if so, only briefly. You'll come up with a new plan of attack.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The help you need is on the way, and whether it arrives in time depends on what stage you are in when it comes to the day's assignment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have a plan that is dependent upon the cooperation of many other people. Don't leave this to chance; get in touch early in the day!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to be contacted by someone who assumes the information to be delivered concerns you -- but this is surely not the case.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your interpretation of signs and signals will be all over the place today, and you must take care that you don't let an error endanger you.
