Born today, you are an open and honest individual with a penchant for doing and saying things that others might not do or say, for fear of rubbing others the wrong way. You have a knack for expressing yourself in such a manner, however, that offense is rarely a possibility -- even when you are delving into subjects that are considered uncomfortable or taboo. You have a unique perspective that allows you to understand other points of view, even those that conflict dramatically with your own, and you know how to work with opposing voices to reach consensus when it is necessary or helpful to do so.
You have a secret desire hiding beneath the surface that is likely to be a major motivator in your life. This is not something that you often address in a conscious manner, but you know it's there, and you know that it is both an asset and a liability.
Also born on this date are: Ross Lynch, actor and singer; Jude Law, actor; Mary Tyler Moore, actress; Ted Danson, actor; Danny McBride, actor and comedian; Andrew Johnson, U.S. president; Mekhi Phifer, actor; Patricia Clarkson, actress; Billy Mitchell, military leader; Gelsey Kirkland, ballerina; Elizabeth, Empress of Russia.
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.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can be instrumental in closing the gap between two conflicting factions. There is much to work for, and you can make quick progress.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may encounter a high level of resistance, at least until those opposed come to a more thorough understanding of your motives.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will want to stand your ground, even as the other side mounts an attack that borders on the personal. You are in the right.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The time for laying blame has passed. Now you'll want to do what you can to fix the problem -- permanently.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can demonstrate "how to" for those who need to know, but take care that you don't reveal too much to your rivals or competitors.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Reputation may become an issue before the day is out, but yours is solid. You needn't expect any serious threats to materialize.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You cannot avoid all criticism, but you can surely maintain a perspective that allows you to bear it with style.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone may be paying more attention to you than usual, and you'll be curious to find out why. The answer is not at all what you expect!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Serious issues demand some serious attention, but you may not be in the mood for such labor. You must respect those who are.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have made some assumptions recently that will be proven false as the day progresses, but you're willing to adapt!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't let communication break down in any way. Too much is riding on your ability to get your message across.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must follow the rules, but you can do so in a way that asserts your own individuality. You needn't blend in.
