Born today, you are nothing if not independent in thought and action -- and you will not allow yourself to be hemmed in by anyone's rules, regulations, expectations or instructions. It is this last, in fact, that may get you in a good deal of hot water in your lifetime, for if you're not able to follow instructions then how are you ever going to work for those who are in positions of authority? Fortunately, you have been endowed with such tremendous charm that you are able, more often than not, to win forgiveness for doing that for which you did not first get permission.
Though you seem to know whenever you "cross the line" in some way, when it comes to your affairs there is no such thing as a line to observe. You can, as far as you are concerned, do or say anything in your pursuit of personal joy and contentment -- especially where love is concerned. In fact, you cannot imagine why someone might not fall for you!
Also born on this date are: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer; Lewis Carroll, author; Donna Reed, actress; Mimi Rogers, actress; Mikhail Baryshnikov, ballet dancer and actor; Patton Oswalt, 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.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are ready to give something a try that wouldn't have been possible as recently as yesterday. Let others know what you're doing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are confident that you'll come out ahead today, even if you have to pay more than usual for something that is usually available for less.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're treading a difficult path at this time, but you're not about to stop and think about it too much -- or you'll surely reverse course!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Questions come your way rapidly today, and you must do what you can to answer them as honestly as possible, no matter how personal they may be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Conceal from others what you're planning and you'll be setting yourself up for a difficult time in the days to come. Transparency is key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Accept a challenge from a rival today and you may be getting yourself involved in something that is much more complex than it may seem.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- No matter how many times someone tells you what you're facing is actually quite simple, you recognize difficulties not apparent to others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must move quickly to get a new plan up and running today, for this may be your only truly viable opportunity for quite some time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have more choices available to you today than you may be aware of, and decisions you make early in the day can make subsequent ones easier.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must be clear about your desires and expectations, especially when working closely with others. Leave no one in the dark today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be pulled in more than one direction today by someone who doesn't understand the inherent difficulty in what's currently going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The "impossible" isn't quite impossible today -- but know that you'll be getting into something quite complicated if you proceed as planned.
