Born today, you are one to defy the odds and snatch victory from the hungry jaws of defeat far more often than not -- and, indeed, others are likely to consider you more than a little lucky! You do have something of a Midas touch, in that much that you come in contact with turns to gold -- figuratively, of course. Those who partner with you know that you can bring to a project just the kind of energy and commitment that can make the difference between success and failure; those who do not will come to know you as a formidable adversary with an uncanny ability to second-guess the competition.
You have a creative way of thinking about the world, and you will surprise no one if you pursue a career in the arts. You prefer those activities that are collaborative over those that require long hours of solitary effort, and any job that takes advantage of your communication skills can prove quite rewarding to you.
Also born on this date are: Kiefer Sutherland, actor; Andy Dick, comedian; Ray Romano, actor and comedian; Chris Evert, tennis player; Samuel L. Jackson, actor.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone you serve may be unclear as to the reasons for his or her latest requests or instructions. Still, you must stay the course.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can come up with an idea or two that has even your rivals thinking that you know better than they do how to achieve success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The clock is ticking, and you cannot afford to find yourself bringing up the rear at this time. You may want to get an early start.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's a good day for reflection -- though there are some issues that may be more stubborn than others and require further investigation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone is waiting for you to finish your assigned tasks before he or she can put the finishing touches on a group effort. Get them done!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to be sure that no one has to wait for you. Tend to your duties according to the schedule that has been laid out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Fun and games can quickly turn sour if you are not careful; everyone must follow the rules -- but some may not know there are any!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Yes, it's up to you to say where things must go at this time; without your careful guidance, a sense of direction may be lost entirely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- There's no need for you to rely on another who, in turn, is relying on someone else. You know how to get things done on your own today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may finally need assistance with a domestic issue that threatens to get out of hand. There's no shame in asking for help!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- That which begins behind the scenes and out of view of the public, can develop very quickly -- but you must exert a controlling influence.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is the time for you to accept responsibility for something done quite a while ago. Today, the stars favor honesty -- and forgiveness.
