Born today, you will lead an active and varied life, for not only do you try to steer your own course, but you are also destined to be driven this way and that by circumstances and forces that are beyond your control. You will no doubt have learned, at a remarkably early age, that it is best to go without a fight wherever those forces lead you, rather than get in your own way by balking at fate and destiny. No matter how you get your start, you're likely to rise rather quickly through the ranks, ultimately assuming a position of some authority. It is this authority that may well define you and your life -- and you must always wield it with great care and sensitivity.
You feel that conflict is best solved through honest talk. You're not one to take up arms quickly, though you certainly will if you feel so compelled. You can, indeed, put up quite a fight when you must, but you are always hopeful that you will not have to. You know you can solve problems with your brain rather than your brawn.
Also born on this date are: Nikki Sixx, musician; Mo'Nique, actress and comedian; Jermaine Jackson, singer; John Kerry, politician; Rita Moreno, actress; Brenda Lee, singer; Mos Def, actor and rapper; Donna Mills, actress; Max Born, physicist; Teri Garr, actress; Fiorello La Guardia, New York City mayor.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can get things done in a manner that suits both the situation and your own preferences -- but don't expect everyone to follow suit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Pay attention to the unspoken messages that are sent your way. You'll learn more from hints than from outright declarations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone close to you is willing to coach you through a situation that does not come naturally. Accept what is offered!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- One who differs from you in very basic ways is likely to be your best possible partner if you can reach an agreement.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep moving forward, despite the reservations you may have about the situation you are currently facing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone may be holding you responsible for something you had little or nothing to do with. You mustn't sit by and let that happen.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It will soon be your turn to deliver. Others may be counting on you to do more than you have promised.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your day will progress in two or three distinct stages. You must be ready for what comes -- and you know what is most probable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You don't have to like someone to work well with him or her. The fact is that cooperation will make success possible for both of you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Things are likely to pan out rather strangely -- or, at the very least, differently from what you have come to expect.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Difficult decisions can bring about the desired results -- if you have the stomach to make them. You're going to want some rest soon.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know how to improvise, and your native creativity will serve you well even in situations that put you at an initial disadvantage.
