Born today, you are, like so many Capricorn natives, of two minds about many things, including what you feel you should do with your life. You are driven to excel and to make a name for yourself, and yet, at the same time, you often dread being in the public eye or having others know anything about you. Indeed, you cherish your privacy and want nothing so much as to enjoy quiet time at home with family and friends -- unless it is enjoying the accolades that public success can bring you! So there are two versions of "you" that will always be struggling for dominance, and you will be caught in the middle.
You are willing to do almost anything once. You do not count failure as a negative thing, provided you have done your best to avoid it; you recognize that there are times in which success is simply not possible -- and that's not a reflection on you. You learn from your mistakes and strive at all times to better yourself.
Also born on this date are: Eli Manning, football player; Mel Gibson, actor and director; J.R.R. Tolkien, author; Victoria Principal, actress; Bobby Hull, hockey player; George Martin, music producer; Stephen Stills, singer and songwriter; Victor Borge, pianist; Robert Loggia, actor; Dabney Coleman, actor; Sergio Leone, film director; Ray Milland, actor.
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, JANUARY 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take the most direct route to your destination. Don't try to fool anyone into thinking you're doing something you're not.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The behavior of those around you tips you off to something strange that's in the works. You may have to call a halt to some shenanigans.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- After all you've said and done, someone may still think you're in support of his or her questionable efforts. Don't beat around the bush!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone else's whimsical behavior may stand in the way of something you've been planning for some time. It's all interconnected, of course.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have an important lesson to learn, and only one person can teach it to you today. It won't be as unpleasant as you may fear, that's for sure!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The farther you travel today, the more you will learn about yourself. That may not comfort you, however, as you yearn to come home.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone else's questions lead you in the right direction, and by day's end you're likely to uncover something you need right now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can put in a great performance today, though no one may be around to witness it. You will be content knowing how well you've done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you do today may not have to involve others directly, but your methods will be indirectly influenced by them. You are flexible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You aren't likely to get a single answer today, despite the fact that you are asking only one question. It's all a matter of interpretation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not know what someone else is up to, but that shouldn't concern you as you start something of your own.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to start off easily today, without too much strain, knowing full well that later you're going to have to work very hard indeed.
