Born today, you aren't the kind to be limited to one course of action in any given situation. You will always insist upon having options, whether they are organic products of current circumstances or manufactured to serve your purposes. In the latter case, you must always take care that you do not bend the rules too far or exercise your imagination so much that the options you create for yourself are implausible in the eyes of others or unworkable for you. You must always be sure you are dealing in facts and realities, for these can prove your most valuable tools as you strive to open doors for yourself and leave yourself options.
While you can be reserved and quiet, there is another aspect to your personality that allows you to spring to life with tremendous energy and self-expression. When this version of you is dominant, you must be heard! You have many talents, but you are likely to develop only one or two to a professional degree.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Cicely Tyson, actress; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, singer; Robert Urich, actor; Sir Ralph Richardson, actor; Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader.
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.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are confident that you can know what is going on even from a distance. It's a combination of knowledge and instinct that works for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Some things you can only do once, and today you'll want to be aware of them when they arise so that you can enjoy them to the fullest.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may seem to know better than others about almost everything today -- but you are, once again, only fooling yourself. Humility is a virtue.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know what a loved one really likes, and today you can provide it in abundance without feeling as though you are giving too much.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If it's help you need, it's help you have to ask for, but you must do it in a way that inspires those around you to step up.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have a little trouble getting your bearings, but if you let things happen organically, you can be caught up in no time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can use the element of surprise to your advantage, but take care that you're not actually making yourself vulnerable as well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Whatever happens is going to have the kind of effect that you may be thinking about for some time. The indirect wins your attention.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may feel as though you don't know quite where you are -- in the grand scheme of things, anyway. Take time to assess carefully.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have a chance at the gold medal, but take care you don't sacrifice something you can never regain in the process.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know how to derive more meaning from seemingly routine situations than most anyone else. Today there is meaning all around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have good reason to doubt someone else's word, but it is not worth a serious argument -- or, worse, a permanent rift in the relationship.
