For Sunday, Jan. 9, 2005. Those with birthdays today: Creativity marks your year. Keep a notebook or tape recorder with you to save your ideas. Others seek you out, as you are verbal, thoughtful, imaginative and find solutions easily. Curb a tendency to be too me-oriented, as your dynamic personality emerges this year. Give others a chance. If you are single, make no commitments during this year of choice. Explore. From November forward, you will make new friends. Many will meet their sweetie late fall 2005. If you are attached, make an effort not to steal the stage. Remember to honor your significant other's feelings and opinions.
