Born today, you get a great deal of mileage out of acting like you know what's what -- and indeed, you are quite adept at behaving the right way in all manner of situations. It is likely that in your travels you will acquire a great deal of knowledge about a wide variety of subjects. This knowledge will serve you well, but you may run the risk of being superficial in your thinking at certain pivotal times. You are destined to have something of an epiphany at some point in your adult years during which you realize that you are ALMOST the person you want to be. What you do afterward will make all the difference.
You like to think of yourself as spontaneous, but you are actually a planner. You do best those things that you have been building up to for quite some time. You fear falling short of your own high expectations, and you work hard to prove yourself to yourself and those around you.
Also born on this date are: Lars Ulrich, musician; Mao Zedong, leader of Communist China; Ozzie Smith, baseball player; Phil Spector, record producer; John Walsh, TV host; Steve Allen, actor and comedian; Richard Widmark, actor; Carlton Fisk, baseball player; Henry Miller, author; David Sedaris, author and humorist; Alan King, comedian; Gray Davis, politician.
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 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are after something that gives you that old feeling you enjoyed so much, but you may find that such things are in short supply.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll recognize in someone else a certain trait that you try hard to overlook in yourself. Perhaps by working together you can both change!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are in a position of power, whether you know it or not. Perhaps not knowing is better; you can't misuse it in that case!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The unintentional is likely to have a greater impact than anything you do on purpose. It's a good day to adopt a "what if" approach.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do much to promote another's agenda without sacrificing too much of your own. They are not identical, but surprisingly compatible.
