Born today, you are able to put up with a great deal without having it affect you in an overt or dramatic way, and this is sure to serve you well throughout your lifetime -- for you are the kind to pursue goals that are difficult to reach and that require you to follow a tortuous path fraught with threats, dangers and obstacles. You can face almost anything with an unshakable poker face. Few know what is really going on beneath your calm, implacable exterior -- even when you are a bubbling cauldron of emotion. You always strive to be your best in any given situation.
You have many talents, but you actually have a rather narrow range of true interests, and you are likely to let several of your talents go undeveloped and unexplored. This is a pity, for you may find, were you to examine them closely, that they could lead you to success and contentment that you had not before imagined.
Also born on this date are: Don Johnson, actor; Tim Conway, actor and comedian; J. Paul Getty, oil tycoon; Gustave Eiffel, engineer, designer of the Eiffel Tower.

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're in no mood to make a private event into something social -- though it may be difficult to turn people away.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is the time for you to ask those difficult questions that may lead to answers no one really wants to hear.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be laughing very soon about a situation that only yesterday was considered tense and unwelcome. Your sense of humor is a saving grace.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to see in your behavior today the ties that bind you to certain family members.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to protect yourself from the kinds of hazards that plague others who are not as responsible at this time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An uncomfortable situation may not be avoidable -- but you can certainly manipulate it in such a way that you come out on top in the end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now is no time to put up with something that goes against the grain. Speak up, and perhaps your objection will result in a change.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be asked to justify your every move today, but you can bet that someone will ask you to explain some of what you're doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Any lack of communication today is likely to result in a lapse in understanding that, in turn, leads to a system failure.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're willing to comply with the rules, but you're eager to do things your own way as well -- and this, indeed, will be a balancing act.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may encounter a good deal of resistance until your critics realize you're working for something that is in their best interest.
