Born today, you have much in common with your fellow Capricorn natives, but two traits are most valuable to you. First, you have been endowed with the ability to work hard and see things through to their conclusion; you are not the kind to give up on something halfway, nor are you one to set goals for yourself without understanding what it will take to reach them. But because it is most likely you will enter a field that requires you to work closely with others, your second notable trait will be most valuable, and that is your ability to make people laugh. Indeed, when the going gets tough, everyone can rely on you to add levity to almost any situation.
You may at times take on more than you can possibly do on your own, but because you seem to be immune from the kinds of harms brought on by working too hard you feel you can do more than others -- often, eventually, to your detriment. You must always remember that quantity and quality are not the same -- and the more you do, the less you may be able to do well.
Also born on this date are: Sir Isaac Newton, physicist; Jimmy Buffett, singer and songwriter; Humphrey Bogart, actor; Annie Lennox, singer; Clara Barton, nurse and founder of the Red Cross; Rod Serling, screenwriter and producer; Sissy Spacek, actress; Barbara Mandrell, singer and actress; Cab Calloway, bandleader.
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.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be reminded again that "knowledge is power." The information at play today will be used in all kinds of ways.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have set priorities that are not negotiable at this time. Others must be willing to give way to you as you move through your day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your desires clash with another's today. What you do to ease someone's pain will benefit yourself and those closest to you as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can put a certain issue behind you, at least for the time being. Don't be surprised, however, if it is revived in the near future.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A difficult time is eased by the appearance of an old friend and colleague on the scene. You'll want to do what he or she tells you to do!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have a clearer view of what lies directly ahead of you today, but the plans you are making must still take into account unknown variables.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are tempted to reveal something ahead of time -- but warning signs urge you not to do so. Your reasoning may be faulty; play it safe.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone plants a seed in your head today and has you dreaming of something that may be out of reach for quite some time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've been following the rules, but you still aren't getting where you believe you ought to go. It may be time for a dramatic change.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have time to think through a situation with more care than usual today. What is revealed to you takes you by surprise, certainly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Things are being turned upside down at this time by forces you do not completely understand. It may be time to talk to an expert.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must try to progress today according to a concrete plan if you want certain things to happen at certain times. Avoid improvisation.
