Born today, you are perhaps the most private individual born under your sign -- or under any sign, for that matter. Your personality is largely inward -- that is, the most vibrant part of your life is what goes on beneath the surface, and this is hot, emotional, always changeable and highly volatile. On the surface, however, you almost always seem calm and collected, or even cool and detached. You don't always go out of your way to meet new people or to mix and mingle with those you do not know well; rather, if solitude is not an option, you prefer to be with family and close friends you have known for quite a while. You never fear being by yourself, and you often do your best work on your own.
You see things in unique ways. You are not the kind to subscribe to the thoughts, feelings or beliefs that are most popular, and you would rather undergo all manner of difficulties than adopt a way of thinking that is not wholly true to yourself. To you, honesty and self-knowledge are paramount.
Also born on this date are: Emily Dickinson, poet; Bobby Flay, celebrity chef; Michael Clarke Duncan, actor; Susan Dey, actress; Dan Blocker, actor; Kenneth Branagh, actor and filmmaker; Dorothy Lamour, actress; Fionnula Flanagan, actress; Chet Huntley, journalist; Rod Blagojevich, former Illinois governor.
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.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- How you start the day, and how you finish it, will determine the level of your success. The middle of the day is more routine.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The harder you swing, the farther the ball will travel, but you have to make contact in the first place. Accuracy is everything.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've earned the opportunities that you enjoy, and you'll want to make the best of each and every one. Don't be distracted.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A mistake you make early in the day can be corrected later on, but it may take you more time to get the thought of it out of your head.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are keenly aware of what is going on around you, and of how it affects you inside and out. Confidence is on the rise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your turn is coming. In the meantime, you'll want to be as supportive as possible of those who are doing their best to do their part.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you say, and whom you say it to, will be noticed by those on the periphery. They're likely to be taken by your style and class.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- No technological assistance can help you with the major issues. You must depend on your own instincts and experience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Something may finally make sense to you that has been a mystery -- or at least a puzzle -- for some days or weeks.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A recent development means more today than it did when it originally transpired -- though your involvement has surely made a difference.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have time to get something done before the due date, provided you have done the necessary research into all key issues.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be able to go the distance, but the trick will be keeping it interesting for your audience. Charisma plays its part.
