Born today, you are not always the most responsible or practical individual born under your sign, and this is most evident when it comes to money matters. You tend to treat your bank account as a sort of bottomless fund from which you can extract ready cash at the spur of the moment, regardless of the amount -- or, for that matter, on how much you may actually have on deposit! Fortunately, you like to surround yourself with people who know things you do not know, and you are likely to have one or two trusted friends -- or family members -- who can steer you in the right direction, or keep you from veering too far off course where your money is concerned.
You have a vivid imagination and a keen eye, and you are almost always able to recreate images you've seen with remarkable accuracy in almost any medium -- but what you most enjoy is making things come alive in movement. Not for you any kind of static, "frozen" creations!
Also born on this date are: Diane Von Furstenberg, fashion designer; Donna Summer, singer; Val Kilmer, actor; John Denver, singer and actor; Ben Kingsley, actor; Anthony Hopkins, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to plan ahead and equip yourself properly today, or you risk getting caught in the rain -- literally and figuratively.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be in charge of others today, but you'll find that it is far easier to let them do what they want than to tell them what to do!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are concerned with what is happening to a friend or loved one who is far from home. News comes to you slowly -- but it is almost all good.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What happens to you today mustn't be misinterpreted, or you risk starting the entire year off on the wrong foot.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Appearances, as always, can be deceiving at this time. Today, you'll know how to look beneath the surface and assess true value.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not know all of the rules that you must follow right now, but one or two are all you need to ensure you avoid any real danger.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are more interested in what you can learn from another today than what you already know -- and the lessons are likely to be many!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't let a friend or loved one pull you off course today; you must be sure to get done what you have said you will get done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The simplest plans can prove quite difficult to follow today, so you would be wise to follow your own instincts and improvise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to want to stay focused on pragmatic concerns and leave the dreaming to someone else right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be preoccupied with issues that are, at present, only important to you. By day's end you'll realize how much other issues matter as well!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be trying to get too much done today, when others are willing to let it all wait until tomorrow -- or the day after.
