Born today, you are a rather unusual individual, prone to unusual thoughts and behavior, and willing to try very unusual things -- both personally and professionally. Truly, the mere fact that you will throw away the rulebook, follow your instincts and attempt what no one else will gives you a distinct advantage in life -- certainly over those who would be your rivals, but also over circumstances themselves. You are flexible and creative, and you will not balk at taking action that others consider ill-advised -- so long as you are sure that the situation you are in warrants that action. You are no daredevil, nor will you do things simply on a whim; you are always working toward a clear and quantifiable result.
You are not necessarily out for personal gain, but you aren't likely to turn down any that comes your way. Indeed, you are likely to be both rich and poor at various times in your life, and while you certainly enjoy being rich, you will never despair when you are poor.
Also born on this date are: Adam Brody, actor; Don Johnson, actor; Tim Conway, actor and comedian; Dave Clark, drummer; Gustave Eiffel, engineer; Helen Slater, actress; Jeff Chandler, actor; J. Paul Getty, oil tycoon and philanthropist.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can complete something that someone else was forced to leave unfinished, but you must be sure to take only appropriate credit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to challenge someone else's decision when you realize that not everything was as it seemed to be -- at least to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If a plan looks good to you, you should be able to make it pan out to your benefit, given the opportunity.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time for you to consider an alternative strategy, as the one you have been trying to implement just isn't shaping up as expected.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may wonder why someone else is doing so much "wrong," when the "right" choice is so clear. This may be an error in judgment on your part.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone close to you is expecting more, but the primary goal you have in mind doesn't accommodate his or her desires.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be willing to listen to reason; maintaining a stubborn, inflexible stance will not serve you well -- or anyone else, either.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can get the whole picture in a clear and straightforward manner. You will then be able to make an effective decision.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others are likely to gravitate toward you simply because of the natural force of your personality. There's nothing magic about it!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone who knows you well is likely to see your hand in all manner of things, even though you may not be directly involved.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The opinions of others will matter to you only insofar as they help you shape an overall plan. You mustn't take them personally.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may get your chance to step out of the realm of routine and do something singular that will be remembered for quite some time.
