Horoscope for the day
January 20, 2013 | 12:00 AM

Horoscope is a kind of "psychological map" which shows certain patterns of every individual's personality. To read this map, you have to know its components. Horoscope is made up of planets, signs, houses, and the aspects between them. Each planet is placed in a particular sign of the zodiac, in Aries, Libra or Scorpio, for example. The signs give a certain colour or teint to the inner force. They show the way in which this part of the personality is expressed.

Born today, January 20

You insist on being genuine at all times, and you will do everything you can to avoid interacting with those who are in any way false, phony, deceptive or otherwise untrue. For you, honesty is not just the best policy, but rather something akin to a religion. You rely on it completely, without compromise, in as many of your dealings as you possibly can. At one dangerous moment in your life, you may be taken in by one who simulates truth with frightening ease — but this, and its accompanying dangers, will not last long.
You don't expect people to fall in love with you, so when it happens you are almost always taken completely by surprise — and most often, it happens with someone you have known a long time and whom you consider to be a good friend, and nothing more.

Famous people born today: Patricia Neal, actress; Joy Adamson, author; George Burns, comedian and actor; Federico Fellini, filmmaker; Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, astronaut; David Lynch, director; Bill Maher, TV host and satirist.

The questions you ask today may be confusing to some, but you know that you're on the right track when you read another's body language.

Someone else may wonder how you are able to second-guess people so well, but you know that there's really no trick involved at all.

Be as objective as possible today, but don't negate that human part of yourself that lets you respond in a natural fashion.

You may be surprised to learn something new about yourself today that goes against a great many things that you learned in the past.

Memories are likely to come flooding back today as you encounter someone who was a big part of your life in times gone by.

Things seem to be humming along, but you may be alerted to a hidden danger by someone who encountered it before. Take this warning seriously!

 The sooner you get things done today, the sooner you'll know whether you have made the right decisions or not. Time will be on your side.

You're not about to let one of your 'pet' issues remain unaddressed throughout the day. It's time to take it to someone who can do something!

Keep things going as well as you can today and you'll look back and realise that the dangers you were facing were actually quite benign.

It may not feel like it today, but you do, indeed, know what you are doing — and why. Stay the course, and don't let another bring you down.

You mustn't pull up short today; your ability to go the distance has never been in question, and now you can prove your ability and worth.

You will gain the advantage today by looking beneath the surface at the kinds of things others are trying to avoid.
