Born today, you are so careful in the way you express yourself that others may make the dangerous mistake of thinking that you are disinterested in whatever may be going on at the time, but nothing could be further from the truth. Everything matters to you -- from the biggest issues to the smallest details. You are so observant, and so able to anticipate what comes next, that you are rarely surprised, and you have taught yourself to expect the unexpected. You see gut reactions as a kind of weakness in others, and you try to avoid such things; you want things to be planned and your own actions to be thought out with great care.
Ironically, it may be one or two "accidents" that happen in your life that prove most significant and shape your existence dramatically. Perhaps one day you will acknowledge that you can't know everything or influence everyone -- but then again, perhaps not. You very much like to be in control.
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; Cody Ross, baseball player; Robert Bly, poet and author; Jose Greco, flamenco dancer.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your powers of observation will serve you well today. You must be able to tell the difference between the truth and a falsehood.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to put in a little extra effort today in order to complete a routine task. Is there someone standing in your way?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Consider what comes your way today as a kind of "warning"; if you respond appropriately to it, all will be well -- but if not, trouble ensues.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You find yourself at the vanguard of something that is new and exciting today. You can't expect to be perfect, but you can get things done!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can keep a rival from overtaking you today. Others show you more support than you were expecting, perhaps. Give something to a friend.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll understand why someone close to you is pursuing a certain line of endeavor, for it is something you want to pursue yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be concerned with your position or reputation today. Trust that things will work out; others will continue to hold you in high esteem.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others may wonder if you are going to reach your goals today, but you have no doubts, do you? Energy is high, and your focus is keen.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself wondering what happened recently to a certain friendship. Things may have not yet reached the point of no return.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A matter of style is worth considering carefully today. What others have to say will surely influence your thinking -- in a good way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can inspire others with what you know -- and how you put what you know to good use. Many may choose to follow in your footsteps.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Something you want to have happen is likely to occur very soon -- even soon enough, perhaps, to affect this day in an irreversible way.
