Born today, you combine physical prowess with a great deal of intellect and common sense. The combination is not only going to bring you a great deal of excitement and accomplishment in your lifetime, but also a great deal of attention, admiration and praise. There is something irresistible about you -- that is, others are drawn to you and compelled to interact with you in meaningful and productive ways. Not for you the usual small talk and chitchat so common in social situations. You like to engage in conversation that is substantive and even profound, and others are more than willing to engage with you!
Also born on this date are: Milla Jovovich, model and actress; Chase Utley, baseball player; Laurie Holden, actress; Pope Francis, leader of the Roman Catholic Church; Eugene Levy, actor; Chris Matthews, journalist; Bill Pullman, actor; Bernard Hill, actor; Giovanni Ribisi, actor; Arthur Fiedler, orchestra conductor.
You have a great deal of staying power, and you can stick with a thing long after others may have called it quits. For you, the journey is far more important and enjoyable than reaching your destination, and you can make it the same for any companion who chooses to go the distance with you.
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.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are looking for answers when the questions are more important at this time. Don't be too quick to size things up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A promise is broken, but another is kept. They say that it all comes out in the wash, but today some things may not feel right.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you claim to know will be put to the test before the day is out. Success depends on your ability to step forward and put it on the line.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will have to adjust your approach when you realize that certain things you were counting on may not pan out as you expected.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to want to approach the day's responsibilities in a most organized fashion. You can't wing it today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are going to have to get used to doing things in a more modern, up-to-date way. Your usual approach is probably obsolete by now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're not one to let go of things easily, especially if they are habits that bring you a certain level of comfort. You must try, however.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What looks like a necessity early on may actually be just one option. You can make changes as you explore your situation fully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll want to get a head start on a few tasks that are sure to take you a while to complete. Seek advice on a personal issue.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It will do you little good (if any) to adopt a "copycat" approach to a developing situation. You must do things your own way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Stopgap measures may not be enough today; you'll want to dedicate a little more thought and action to the problem you are facing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you think is pure chance is actually a situation that you can control if you go at it from the proper starting point.
