IF JANUARY 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Humanitarian/media mogul Oprah Winfrey (1954) shares your birthday today. You are reasonable and fun-loving. People like you and they trust you. Personally, you will always defend your beliefs and take the high road because you are an idealist. You’re tolerant of many points of view but you enjoy being provocative yourself. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new.
