Born today, you are an expert listener, but every now and then you want to be heard yourself -- and in those cases you can speak and express yourself with such confidence and clarity that every idea is communicated successfully and permanently! Perhaps it is because you are such a good listener that you know how to shape your thoughts in such an accomplished way; some of it is learned, but a great deal of it is instinct -- and you will learn, throughout your lifetime, to trust those keen instincts more and more.
You like things to be a little crazy when it comes to love and romance; you do not follow the rule book, nor do you want something traditional. Anyone who gets romantically involved with you must want the same kind of fiery, unpredictable relationship, too!
Also born on this date are: Clara Barton, humanitarian; Barbara Mandrell, singer; Sissy Spacek, actress; Annie Lennox, singer.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have something of quality to bring to the table, but you may have to wait until there is room for you to be included.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to be in the right place at the right time -- on more than one occasion, in fact. You have something to reveal.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to get extraordinary results simply by doing something entirely ordinary. Timing is the key.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A fork in the road is not to be feared, but to be anticipated. You're ready to make the kind of choice that this moment requires of you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have a few words of wisdom to offer someone who is in need of some assistance. Take care you don't step in and do it all yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your sense of humor is just what is needed to defuse an incendiary situation. Beware, however -- the wrong joke at the wrong time can backfire.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Take the time to do something nice for yourself today. Once you focus on another's needs, they may prove all-consuming for a while.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be building a house of cards that is perilously close to collapse; your ideas must incorporate more practical concerns.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be asked to do something that doesn't come naturally -- but if you prepare thoroughly, you should acquit yourself quite well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to have to adjust your schedule in order to tend to another's more immediate needs. It's time to take decisive action.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A lighter approach is advised; you mustn't come on so strong that even those who are on your side are actually avoiding you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have a certain issue that cannot be resolved out in the open -- just yet. Today, you'll want to take an almost secretive approach.
