Born today, you always maintain a bright and positive outlook, even when things don't go your way. This is because you have been endowed with the ability to see past any temporary hardships or setbacks, and see what lies ahead -- sometimes very far ahead -- that will be good for you in the long run. You are never the kind to go after fleeting instant gratification; you want the kind of rewards and contentment that can last. You know that it takes patience and fortitude to weather the kinds of knocks you will have to take before you get to the promised land. But get there, you will; you have no doubt! Your positive spirit is an inspiration to others.
None of this is meant to suggest that you do not have your share of heartache. Indeed, you will certainly become familiar with the darker side of love and romance, if only to better appreciate the other, more desirable aspects! You know that pain and joy are two sides of the same coin, and you know how to live with one to have more of the other.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Cicely Tyson, actress; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, singer; Robert Urich, actor; Sir Ralph Richardson, actor; Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader.
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.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There are a great many details to tend to, so be sure you're not getting into something that you cannot sort out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just because something is "new and improved" doesn't mean it's for you. Indeed, the more familiar, old-fashioned approach may be just right.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to confirm the times and expectations before you jump into something that might otherwise get the better of you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can easily be taken advantage of if you're not careful. Lay down the law and make your own personal limits very clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to clean up after yourself, surely. Any messes you leave behind will only cause trouble for you later on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can be sure that someone is watching you -- not because he or she is being critical, but because of a personal fascination.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It may be time, at last, for you to engage another in a social way. Remember, all work and no play can make you dull, indeed!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You have a plan, but it must be flexible. Your various goals are within reach, but you must know when to try for each one in turn.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Turn on the charm today, and you can have more than you had expected, but it may come in a manner that surprises even you!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It may be time to make some changes around the home. Be sure you know what you're getting into before beginning a do-it-yourself project.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Another's advice or guidance may not be making things any easier for you. Perhaps you're not making your needs clear?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself in a difficult position toward midday, but when an ally shows up unexpectedly, you should be able to extricate yourself.
