Born today, you know how to take full advantage of an opportunity when it comes your way, but you may be frustrated by the fact that though you seem to know what must be done in any given situation, others do not -- and you cannot always do things on your own! You must be willing to teach others what they need to know in order to work in tandem with you. You can make the most of a situation that might, to some, seem to be anything but advantageous -- but that's when you shine most brightly. You are able to remain in high spirits when those around you are succumbing to negativity.
You are not able to do everything, nor are you comfortable in every situation -- but because you know this you are able to avoid those endeavors for which you are unsuitable. You recognize that you have certain weaknesses, but you certainly don't like to talk about them! You know how to combine skill and luck in creative ways.
Also born on this date are: Lars Ulrich, drummer; Mao Tse-tung, leader of Communist China; Ozzie Smith, baseball player; Phil Spector, record producer; John Walsh, TV host; Steve Allen, comedian; Richard Widmark, actor; Carlton Fisk, baseball player; Henry Miller, author; David Sedaris, author and humorist; Alan King, comedian.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be trying to go too far too fast. Today, you'll have the opportunity to slow down and assess your situation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A bad habit makes you look bad, but today it is making someone else look bad too. It's time to break it once and for all.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can dispense with a certain artificial courtesy and address a key issue in a more honest fashion. Not everyone responds well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An uncomfortable situation arises today that only you know how to address in a productive manner. Others will surely do as you ask.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on the things that are least apparent today. It will take a little practice, but it will enable you to anticipate events more accurately.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have more room to maneuver today than usual -- but that doesn't mean that you can do anything with impunity. You must follow some rules!
