Born today, you have one of the most forceful personalities of anyone born under your sign, yet you are, at heart, a gentle and sensitive individual, not one to throw your weight around to get what you want. You are a natural negotiator, one who is able to understand all evidence and indicators and discuss the facts openly and clearly in order to come to some kind of consensus and ensure progress -- and often contentment -- for everyone involved. You don't always enjoy being cast in the role of leader, but you can play it well and in such a way that it may prove a recurring one. Others flock to you, and they are more than willing to do what you tell them to do.
In the ideal world, you would enjoy splitting your time between city and country, for you enjoy the hubbub and social opportunities the city provides as well as the quiet and privacy that the country affords. One thing is certain: You want what you want and will work hard to acquire it.
Also born on this date are: Samuel L. Jackson, actor; Kiefer Sutherland, actor; Jane Fonda, actress; Frank Zappa, musician and songwriter; Andy Dick, comedian; Florence Griffith-Joyner, Olympic runner; Chris Evert, tennis player; Benjamin Disraeli, British prime minister; Walter Hagen, golfer; Julie Delpy, actress.
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.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Honesty is not necessarily the best policy despite what you've been told, but it may be your own choice, given the circumstances.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can take advantage of developments in the financial scene. Others are warning you against overspending, and you hear them well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your travel plans are still up in the air -- or, at least, certain specifics regarding a trip that you have long wanted to take.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can take a more philosophical approach to a routine problem and come up with a solution that takes others by surprise.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have a way of doing things that will both instruct and inspire. Complications arise late in the day, but you can rise above them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You or a loved one are in need of some assistance, but either way you will be the one to make sure that it can be found.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be unable to do certain things the way you have been instructed to do them, but your own instincts uncover alternate methods.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The "where" and the "when" are likely to prove your most important concerns today. The rest is almost certain to work itself out on its own.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone you've been after for quite some time may appear quite by surprise, but you may not be prepared to act as planned.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to experience something that is, at least at first, quite indescribable. You'll find the words later on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Courage is a major issue, but not in a general sense. You must be able to apply it in a way that is focused and specific.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What happens to you by accident can be used to your advantage once you figure out just how to spin the story to others.
