Born today, you are a strong-willed and eager individual, always at the forefront of anything that is going on, ready to bear whatever burden is necessary to make things work out favorably -- both for you and for anyone working with you. You have a keen mind and an able body; you are never truly out of your depth, and you are more than willing to try something new when the opportunity arises. You recognize that not everyone is suitable for every activity or endeavor, but that doesn't mean one can't try everything.
And your work is, very likely, your life -- at least a big portion of it. You aren't the kind to have a "job," or even a "career" in the strict definition of the term. Rather, you make your work your way of life -- and you will have chosen your line of work with that approach in mind.
Also born on this date are: Samuel L. Jackson, actor; Kiefer Sutherland, actor; Jane Fonda, actress and activist; Frank Zappa, musician, songwriter, composer; Florence Griffith Joyner, Olympic track star; Chris Evert, tennis player.
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.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is no time to sugarcoat things. Speak from the heart, but tell it like it is -- and don't let anyone tell you you're being negative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your prospects are looking up just as the odds of success are on the rise. Give yourself a break; you can't do everything all at once.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll get a great deal of information today from someone who works behind the scenes. Soon you'll be able to put it to good use; plan ahead.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't simply let things develop as they will today; you must take charge and exert a controlling influence. Others are counting on you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be captured once more by an interest you thought you had given up quite some time ago. Something is going on to make it relevant again.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Focus on tasks you know you can complete in one go. The rest can wait until you've made a plan and arranged for some assistance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone is trying to reach you about something you're likely trying to avoid. There's no point in stretching this out further; answer the call!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be waiting for a friend to give you the final word before putting a new project into motion. A false start can be dangerous.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 19) -- Once they start bombarding you today, interruptions will have to be dealt with, as they won't disappear on their own, surely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can combine employment and enjoyment today if you think about what lies ahead in a new way. Your creativity reaches a high point.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to figure out just how much your ideas are worth before you spread them around for free. You mustn't sell yourself short today!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your perception of a negative may be entirely misleading. You'll have to sound out others to find out how you're leading yourself astray.
