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 21

You are not always in a great hurry to get things done before anyone else does, and you are not driven by any great desire to break records or achieve the impossible. Rather, you tend to go about your business in a quiet, confident, businesslike manner that is almost guaranteed to find success, even when things get tough. You have a great many skills, and you know how to combine them to make the most of the potential in any situation. Despite any adversity, you are able somehow to maintain momentum and move forward, even when others are slowing, stopping or turning around! You know how to weather controversy, as well.

Once you have won the affection of those around you, you can count on it through thick and thin — forever. Indeed, you inspire that kind of loyalty among friends and supporters; they're not likely to go anywhere, even when you risk letting them down — which rarely happens, if ever!

Famous people born on this date: Hakeem Olajuwon, basketball player; Robby Benson, actor; Geena Davis, actress; Jill Eikenberry, actress; Mac Davis, singer and actor; Placido Domingo, operatic tenor; Jack Nicklaus, golfer; Wolfman Jack, disk jockey; Telly Savalas, actor; Paul Scofield, actor; Thomas 'Stonewall'  Jackson, military leader.

You're going to want to see the whole picture in front of you today — so you must be willing to move about for the best perspective.

You can be a role model to one who seems to have no sense of direction. He is likely to see in you the kind of person he wants to be.

You may be trying to make distinctions today where there are none; indeed, those with whom you are dealing have much in common with you.

You are not seeing things from the best possible perspective today, and for that reason they are not likely to appear as they really are.

You may have to face one or two of your fears today before you can free yourself of that oppressive feeling you've suffered from of late.

If you're waiting for things to come to you of their own accord today, you're going to have a long wait. Go after them!

You can help someone else prove that he or she has what it takes. In the end, the issue is one of self-confidence, not ability.

You'll be able to prove to a friend or loved one that he or she is far more capable than recent results may indicate.

The supporting role you assume today may prove more important, and more influential, than any leading role you played in the past.

You can avoid trouble today simply by following instructions to the letter — even though you are feeling somewhat rebellious.

You'll have the chance to demonstrate something unusual, even magical — and those around you will not know quite how to take it.

You're feeling pressure to behave in ways that do not come naturally. Today, a parent or father figure knows just what you should do.
