Born today, you don't always have to say things in a direct, explicit manner in order to be clearly understood. Indeed, you know how to use the power of suggestion to your advantage in almost all situations. What a simple smile or wink can yield is simply remarkable! You are an attractive, charismatic individual, and you know how to use your native charms to get what you want -- though you must always stop short of outright manipulation if you want to avoid being taken for someone who is merely out to cash in on your good looks and winning personality. There may be those who do not understand just how deep you really are.
You aren't always going to make the best decisions, but you know how to change course whenever you feel the need to do so. This is something you will no doubt learn on your own simply so that you can save yourself when the need arises. You may flirt with danger now and then, but you're not ever likely to succumb -- not fully, anyway.
Also born on this date are: Tia Carrere, actress; Cuba Gooding Jr., actor; Taye Diggs, actor; Kate Bosworth, actor; Isaac Asimov, author; Paz Vega, actress; Jack Hanna, zoologist; Jim Bakker, televangelist; Wendy Phillips, actress; David Cone, baseball player.
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, JANUARY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Preparing for the worst is one thing, but expecting it only eats away at your own hope and spirit. Try to remain optimistic.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may feel as though you're going through something all alone. In fact, you have quite an able team helping you along the way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your natural optimism serves you well throughout the day, especially when a piece of news requires careful personal interpretation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is the time for you to cash in on an opportunity that you may only have been flirting with lately. It's your turn to benefit!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may wonder at someone else's ability to remain positive under stress, but perhaps you should adopt some of that behavior yourself!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Transportation issues may make it harder to get from here to there, but you can accomplish much from home.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Be sure to keep friends and loved ones updated about your movement. Much is likely to happen when you are away from home.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are able to laugh at much that others don't think is funny, but there's no reason for you to adjust your perspective at all.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Decisions are made one at a time, and progress is made step by step. You mustn't expect things to happen quickly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be trying to do things out of order. Although this suits your mood, it may not be very efficient.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to be reminded of a past episode that taught you a lot. Those lessons will come in handy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you want from a loved one may actually be rather difficult to ask for, but you'll find a way. Ultimately, you'll both enjoy yourselves.
