For Thursday, Dec. 26, 2002. Those with birthdays today: Jump into action this year. You will find little reason not to do what you want. Maintaining a high level of focus could make all the difference. You might feel conflicted with work demands and/or your professional image. You find a way of making these differences work. If you are single, your relationship could take a startling twist or turn, as someone quite dynamic floats right through your door. If you are attached, your relationship will benefit if you share more of your work with this person. Libra reads you loud and clear.
