Born today, you are one of the most mysterious individuals born under your sign, for you seem to live two lives -- one that is shared with the world, and one that is shared with quite literally nobody. You are as private as can be when you so choose; you will never reveal what you do not want to reveal, even when others are clamoring to know more about you. Indeed, that may be the trick you are best at: You know that others want to be close to you, share with you and know you, so you have no doubt learned to keep certain aspects of yourself and your life safe and protected, for you alone to enjoy. You even keep certain things from the people closest to you, so that even your loved ones may not know everything about you.
You have powerful talents, and you are able to hold your own, no matter what kind of challenge you face or who your rivals are. You may not hit your stride right away, of course, but when you do -- everyone had better step aside, for your stride is long, confident and unyielding!
Also born on this date are: Denzel Washington, actor; Dame Maggie Smith, actress; John Legend, singer; Seth Meyers, television host and comedian; Woodrow Wilson, U.S. president; Sienna Miller, actress; Nichelle Nichols, actress; Martin Milner, actor; Earl Hines, jazz musician.
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.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can do more than expected, but don't let yourself get carried away. There will be a time to stop and smell the roses.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to reschedule something quite important. Focus on the things that others are throwing your way, and tend to them immediately.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- How you see things that are fast approaching will affect how you deal with them -- and how others react to your attempt to take charge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There are one or two things that you don't want others to know about you -- but you may only be overreacting to a perceived danger.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone who has been objecting to your methods and motives lately may well come around after realizing what you're really up to.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to tend to a sudden vulnerability before you can take any further steps forward. You can't afford to take that kind of risk.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A disagreement that arises from a disputed issue at work cannot be allowed to fester. You must resolve this problem as soon as possible!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others are waiting for you to step forward and claim what is yours, so why don't you feel the need to do it? Today is the day.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not feel that someone else is ready to handle the responsibility that he or she has accepted, but by no means must you intrude!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must start thinking like a rival very quickly if you expect to make headway. A solid victory may be a long time in coming.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can improve on what someone has done before and impress those who were expecting your efforts to fall flat.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A question of policy may come between you and a friend who usually agrees with you on all such matters. Take a lighthearted approach.
