Born today, you are one of the most daring individuals born under your sign, and while other Capricorn natives may be content with doing the things they are "supposed" to do -- without ever really wavering at all -- you are the kind to choose your own path and do things in a way that pleases you and allows you to be the best you can be, whether or not it is in line with the expectations of others. It's not so much that you break the rules; in fact, you do all you can to follow them to the best of your ability.
There are those who may call you eccentric -- and they would not be far off the mark, for you can be wildly different from those around you. What you have going for you, however, is a sense of humor.
Also born on this date are: Ross Lynch, actor; Jude Law, actor; Mary Tyler Moore, actress and producer; Ted Danson, actor; Danny McBride, actor and comedian; Andrew Johnson, U.S. president; Mekhi Phifer, actor; Patricia Clarkson, actress.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll ask yourself many questions throughout the day, and though the answers may sometimes elude you, the act of asking serves a key purpose.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What goes on inside is far more important to you right now than any outside developments. You must keep track of your progress.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be ready to break through a certain barrier as soon as you are given the go-ahead from someone who is serving as project control.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Are you sure that you've tied up all conceivable loose ends? Until you do, progress will be limited today. Look at things from all angles.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must complete certain "basics" today before you can start on the fun stuff. This makes sense, and it's not something you want to avoid.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Safety is likely to be an issue throughout much of the day -- especially if you find yourself traveling. You know best what you need to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not feel quite up to speed today, but someone can fill you in even as you work. Heed warnings from those who have been there.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Fair dealings are the only dealings you want be involved with today -- and you must make that perfectly clear before things really get going.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're facing a barrier that seems more daunting than it really is. A little creative thinking has you solving the problem.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Experience serves you well today as you are requested to do a job in half the time it would normally take. This is really a slam dunk!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have only so much time in which to make your pitch today, and once it's over, you'll simply have to wait. The boss's decision is final.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Contact from someone who figured prominently in past endeavors makes you wonder if you can't resurrect an old project, but is it even doable?
