Born today, you are a far more emotional individual than most others born under your sign. Rather than trying to fight against this aspect of your nature -- perhaps the most dominant aspect -- you are the kind to embrace it, to work with it, to shape it and exploit it in order to maximize your own potential and increase your chances of success in whatever endeavor you choose to pursue. The most important thing is that you don't allow yourself to be a "loose cannon," and that you channel your strong emotions in such a way that they remain an asset rather than a liability -- which is what they are for many others.
You are a highly competitive individual, and this can go hand-in-hand with your emotional side as you chart a course for your life. Anything that requires you to rise to a challenge and "win" is something you can embrace. Indeed, once embraced, an endeavor quickly becomes a part of your soul.
Also born on this date are: Eddie Vedder, musician and singer; Corey Haim, actor; Jim Harbaugh, football player and coach; Susan Lucci, actress; Joseph Smith, religious leader; Anthony Phillips, musician; Roy Brown, World War I pilot; Cody Ross, baseball player; Robert Bly, poet and author; Jose Greco, flamenco dancer.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are ready to send someone off to an adventure all his or her own today, but you will surely maintain close emotional ties.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The clock is ticking, and you must be sure to tend to things in the right order, and at the right times, throughout this busy day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you have more days like today, the unusual may well become the usual, and the unexpected the expected. Be ready for anything.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's a good day for sneaking up on someone who least expects it. In the end, the surprise will prove more than pleasurable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to take a break from your usual routine to tend to some unusual developments on the home front.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're going to have to keep a secret as you stumble upon information that someone else would surely love to have!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Repetition gives you confidence, but be sure to move on when you feel the time is right. Don't overdo it in any sense.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Self-indulgence may not be punished in the usual way, so feel free to enjoy yourself more than usual -- but don't take it too far.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are harboring certain feelings that are just aching to come out. Today you may have the perfect opportunity to open up.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have more on your plate than you are used to today, but if you prioritize and economize, you can see it all through.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're on your own, but that doesn't mean you can't take a leaf out of another's book to ensure your eventual success.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you are used to doing in these situations isn't likely to work as well as usual. Take time to brainstorm.
