Is Jupiter's annual change of direction a reason to celebrate or a justification for feeling sorry for yourself? Actually, it is neither. It is an invitation to a process of consolidation. You have lately been pursuing a varied selection of plans and ideas. You figure that if you keep enough options open, at least one should eventually start to look as if it is due to pay off.

Ian Joseph Somerhalder was born on 8 December 1978 in Covington, Louisiana.

As an actor, Ian is best known for playing Boone Carlyle in TV drama Lost and Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries.

From the tender age of ten Ian began modelling although he settled on acting as a career aged 17.

In 2010, on his 32nd birthday, Ian announced that he was setting up the Ian Somerhalder Foundation with the aim of helping to educate people on the importance of protecting the environment and animals.

"Instead of gifts this year, my birthday wish is that we come together and raise funds to support projects that protect our habitat and nurture our furry friends," he said.

Ian, who dated his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev for 18 months, is now believed to be seeing American TV and film actress Nikki Reed.
