Born today, you are quite fond of exploration of all kinds, and you can often be found sticking your nose into all manner of things that attract only you. You are fascinated by the ways of the world -- both physically and spiritually. You want to know what makes the world turn, but you also crave knowledge about the inner workings of your fellow man -- and that requires a willingness to learn a great deal about yourself.
You may not have a scientific bent -- and that is likely to surprise those who know you best. Still, you will put your curiosity about the world to good use in any one of a variety of possible ways -- for like the scientist, the artist thrives on asking and answering questions about life and all it has to offer. Your best friends are those who understand that you are always asking questions.
Also born on this date are: Jimmy Buffett, singer and songwriter; Humphrey Bogart, actor; Annie Lennox, singer; Clara Barton, nurse and founder of the Red Cross; Rod Serling, screenwriter and director; Sissy Spacek, actress.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Are you seriously thinking of breaking the rules today? Think twice, for you're likely to uncover some serious dangers if you do!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Availability may be the primary issue today. Are you wasting your time going after something that is simply not available right now?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel somehow distanced from those who are at the center of things today. Is this a product of your perspective or your approach?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone close to you will be saying, "Show me!" at some point, but you mustn't reveal more than you are ready to, lest you endanger yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may encounter one or two new things today that are difficult for you to process. Take your time, and don't make any rash judgments.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you need is available to you today -- but take care that you don't use that against anyone who may not be quite so lucky.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Form and function can combine quite well today -- but you must be willing to let things develop organically and not force any issues.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you know today can be added to what you learn tomorrow -- and can prove quite valuable to you retroactively. You must be flexible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must take precautions today if you're going to avoid the kind of traps that others around you are falling into regularly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You want a little more than someone is making readily available. Try thinking through a more effective approach; be ready to negotiate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The instruction you get today may not be enough to ready you for what you are facing -- but experience serves you well.
