Born today, you are one of the most patient, stalwart, loyal, dedicated and hard-working individuals born under your sign. You have also been blessed with a remarkable ability to "see" the future. That is, you can devise an image of the future as you would like it to be, and then work toward it in such a way that you make it come to be. Will there be struggles in your life? Certainly! But you believe that through struggle comes achievement and enlightenment, and that nothing good will ever come of avoiding hardship altogether. Would you prefer an easy life? Yes! But you recognize that such a life is earned, and that you must work hard to realize your dreams, and make true that vision of the future that you call yours and to which you feel you are destined.
You are more than willing to learn all you can from those who chart their courses in ways that you admire. Though you can and will learn a great deal from others, you are no copycat -- and you are perfectly willing to admit when someone else knows more than you! You are likely to become a role model for many others as you mature.
Also born on this date are: Denzel Washington, actor; Dame Maggie Smith, actress; John Legend, singer; Seth Meyers, actor and comic; 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.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- How you deliver the news to a loved one today will be one of the most important decisions you make. Consider all possible reactions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A family member is concerned about your current situation, but doesn't want to intrude. He or she can be included today, however.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll find a certain gravitational pull to be virtually irresistible today -- and it will surely bring you closer to a certain someone.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are coming up with all sorts of reasons why something recently happened the way it did, but you're overlooking the most likely -- and obvious.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are not in the mood to deal with the same old problems -- but escape is not possible right now. You must deal with them head-on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you consider novel is actually old news to someone else. He or she is able to influence your point of view in a positive manner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- This is no time for you to insist on having your way, as that is only likely to increase tensions between you and a certain someone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Progress is measured in small increments today, but it's still progress. Focus more on what has been done than on what remains undone.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- An apology may be in order, but you can rest assured that no one is going to fault you for something that was virtually unavoidable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As the seconds tick by today, you'll grow more concerned about something you're going to have to face at day's end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You needn't hide your excitement about a coming event -- especially one that is so important to you personally. Timely action is required.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Though someone may have made something of a mess of a situation of which he was in charge, you'll have the chance today to set it all right.
