Born today, you are one of those "dangerous" individuals -- mercurial, unconventional, unpredictable, at times even irresponsible. At least, this will be true when you are young. As you grow older and gain experience and wisdom, you will discover that there is no need to be difficult, and you can still be the creative whirlwind that you naturally are without incurring the wrath of those around you! You have a great deal of personal ability, and a great deal of pride -- and these two will combine in a kind of ambition that is rare even among Capricorn natives: You simply want to be at the top, and that's all there is to it! Of course, this is where maturity comes in -- you may not be able to achieve your goals until you "mellow" with age.
Also born on this date are: Sir Anthony Hopkins, actor; Donna Summer, singer; John Denver, singer; Val Kilmer, actor; Sir Ben Kingsley, actor; Bebe Neuwirth, actress; Henri Matisse, painter; Simon Wiesenthal, Nazi hunter; Tim Matheson, actor; George C. Marshall, U.S. military leader and politician.
You know how to look someone in the eye and affect them -- often temporarily, but possibly for a lifetime. You are able to look at someone across a room and have him or her feel as though there's no one else in it! This is a curious power you have, and one that can be used for good or ill -- the choice is yours. Never think, however, that using it for ill doesn't come at a price.
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, JANUARY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You claim to know what is going on, yet you are behaving as though you have been left out of the loop. Which is it?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time to keep your true feelings from a friend. Your willingness to speak the truth may be all that stands between him and disaster.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone who comes to you for advice is seeking instruction, and you will be doing them a disservice if you try to do it all yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you have taken upon yourself to do requires more bravery than you are accustomed to applying. Banish fear entirely!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're only getting information in bits and pieces, and you won't be able to act until the whole picture is clearer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're trying to approach a certain problem in your usual logical fashion, but it may actually require a more emotional approach.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may benefit from believing that you are mistaken, even if it goes against your every instinct. This phase shouldn't last long.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you have going for you puts you well out in front, though the competition isn't likely to let up just yet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can boast of considerable skill, but what serves you best is just the right amount of humility.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be called upon to address an issue that no one else is willing to face head-on. Your ability to avoid conflict pays off here.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are waiting for the pieces of a puzzle to fall into place before making an irrevocable decision, but you may not have that much time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're seeing things clearly for the most part, but one issue in particular is cloudier than usual. Get a second opinion.
