Every person 18 and older is a parent, regardless of whether they've bore children or not, because adults are in charge of parenting themselves. What sort of parent have you been to yourself lately? It's something to ponder as the Taurus moon auspiciously angles two authority figures of the zodiac. Good parenting ushers in successful humans.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 15). Goodwill radiates from you, and good fortune flows to you. Though you're not trying to become famous, you'll be "discovered" in some way, maybe in the form of a contract or an inspired relationship. Other highlights: scoring big tickets for an unforgettable event and a heartfelt moment straight out of your fondest dreams. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 33, 28 and 1.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Clones are now scientifically possible, but it's your experiences, not your DNA, that's made you amazing. The cool way you handle today's challenge couldn't possibly be accomplished by anyone else, not even your clone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Something in your environment is changing in a way you can neither ignore nor stop. The ego wants to fight this. That's natural. But acceptance is going to happen sooner or later. Sooner would keep you from wasting your effort.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The simple logic suggests that if you can solve a problem, there's no need to worry; if you can't, same. But worry still serves a purpose. Wasn't it the first indicator that you had a problem? Thank your worries. They're only trying to help.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're very generous when you want to be. And when you don't want to be, there's a good reason, though perhaps it's an unconscious one. If you dare to investigate it, you'll learn something new about yourself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Remember when you went to a function and got cornered into listening to an unsolicited advice monologue that there was seemingly no end to or exit from? You learned from that so today you'll know what to avoid.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you share with someone you love, it doesn't feel like giving. It's natural and effortless. The energy comes back to you and you seem to have more than you started with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As you're not a cynical person, sometimes you don't think to stop and ask, "What is this person getting out of the situation?" But that's something to inquire about today. And, actually, it's not a cynical question, just a realistic one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Are you excelling because you're working hard or are you working hard because you're excelling? The point is that it's really coming together, so enjoy this exhilarating part of the ride.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have ideals, and you really might embody them at some point, but you don't have to in order to be worthy of love and acceptance. Use them like the ship captain uses the stars -- as guides to orient the map.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Having someone you can rely on is a pretty big deal right now. Just knowing that there's someone who's invested in your success and well-being will reduce your overall stress and anxiety.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). One game strategy is to pick an arena that doesn't have too much in the way of competition to increase your odds of winning. It's a good way to gain experience and competence until you're ready to go to the next level.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Rejoice in the discovery of your own mistakes. It's what scientists and scholars do; it's what lifelong learners and those committed to excellence do. It's the secret to growing quickly.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Baptist minister and human rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. was born on this day in 1929. The man who famously changed the world by declaring, "I have a dream..." was a charismatic Capricorn born under a dreamy Pisces moon. Venus also in the wise and spiritual sign of Pisces is the indicator for masterful wielding of the healing power of love.
