Born today, you have deep feelings that require constant monitoring if they're not to get the better of you; this can happen at the most unusual and unexpected of times. If you learn to control your emotions, however, you can corral their tremendous force and put it to good use in any number of creative endeavors. You will learn that your emotions are the stuff upon which you can build much in your life: domestic contentment, professional achievement and more. It will be a tricky thing, of course, to know just when and where to apply what you feel, but experimentation should serve you well when you are young. Remember -- if at first you don't succeed, you can and should try again!
You enjoy keeping busy, but even you will go through periods when you want to think of nothing at all or do nothing at all -- at least for a day or two, or even only a few hours. You do not have a limitless supply of personal energy; you must always take care that you do not drive yourself to the point of exhaustion.
Also born on this date are: Eddie Vedder, musician and singer; Corey Haim, actor; Jim Harbaugh, football player and coach; Susan Lucci, actress; Joseph Smith, religious leader; Anthony Phillips, musician; Roy Brown, World War I pilot; Cody Ross, baseball player; Robert Bly, poet and author; Jose Greco, dancer and choreographer.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not able to get things done entirely on your own, but there's certainly no harm in asking trusted friends for help.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're able to give another precisely what he or she needs. In return, you'll receive something you never knew you wanted.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may receive an important piece of information at the last minute, and this will give you a lead on something you really need.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in more of a hurry than you had hoped to be, but if you stock up, you can make a long trip in less time than expected, with fewer stops.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You should be able to say with pride, "Mission accomplished!" by day's end. What comes as a result is everything you expected -- and more.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Prompt delivery is expected, but you must have a backup plan ready to go just in case. Give someone a boost when he or she asks for one.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be able to report to a superior about much that has been going on behind the scenes. He or she will be able to use that info.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Keep your wits about you as you forge ahead into unfamiliar territory. What goes on around you impacts you personally throughout the day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be tempted to go undercover in order to get what you want -- or where you want -- but it's best to be open and honest all day.
