Born today, you have a knack for combining style and substance in a rare way. You are sure to make a big impact when you enter a room, and you are sure to be remembered long after you make your exit. There is something quite theatrical about your very character. You do things in rather broad, dramatic strokes -- and yet you never seem contrived or phony. To you, life is something to be experienced, wrestled with and celebrated at every turn; you're not the kind to go about your business in a sheepish or -- heaven forbid -- apologetic fashion, and you encourage others to express themselves with the same gusto.
When you do choose to be quiet, subtle or underplayed, it is usually when you are battling depression or self-doubt -- and at such times you are inclined to hide yourself away for a time until your recovery is complete. You don't like to air your dirty laundry in public!
Also born on this date are: Joyce Jillson, astrologer; Alan King, comedian; Steve Allen, comedian; Richard Widmark, actor.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- That fast pace you've been trying to keep up may prove too much even for you right now. Slowing down doesn't have to be negative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to fight for the position you've held for quite some time, because today someone may uncover evidence to the contrary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may realize that you've made an error during the past few days, and right now -- and only right now -- you'll have a chance to correct it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have a way of convincing others to listen to what you have to say, even when what you have to say may be complete nonsense!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The strength of your character is what will hold you up as you face a challenge that might wither a lesser individual.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will have little to worry about as the day progresses, once you get past a brief situation that concerns you for a personal reason.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have good reason to revisit a plan that you had abandoned a while back. Now, the involvement of a stranger has you inspired.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll be afforded a glimpse at something that is usually kept from others. As a result, you'll be able to make a spur-of-the-moment choice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The reaction you are trying to get from others may be elusive, and you'll have to work harder than expected to elicit what you want.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to find yourself in a win-win situation, though you may have to do some careful negotiation early in the day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not care who hears you when you vent your opinions freely, but in the long run, you were better to have weighed your words.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you've been long awaiting is likely to be over now -- or very soon. As a result, you'll be able to get back to work in some way.
