Born today, you enjoy a good joke, and you can often be found laughing at things that others do not think are funny -- including yourself. This is not to say that you don't take things seriously; actually, you tend to take things more seriously than most, which is perhaps why you allow yourself the outlet of humor and laughter in the most serious or even morbid of situations. Were it not for laughter and the restorative power it has for you, you might find that the world is simply too much to bear -- as many others born under your sign also find. But you have a way of shrugging things off, of crediting even the worst in life to mankind's innate madness -- and that, ultimately, is something you find very funny, indeed.
You have a certain charm that you rely on, both personally and professionally, and you find that people are more than willing to open doors for you -- even doors to their own hearts. You may well fall in love many, many times in your life, but true, lasting love will come along no more than once.
Also born on this date are: Ross Lynch, actor; Jude Law, actor; Mary Tyler Moore, actress and producer; Ted Danson, actor; Danny McBride, actor and comedian; Andrew Johnson, U.S. president; Mekhi Phifer, actor; Patricia Clarkson, actress; Billy Mitchell, U.S. military leader; Gelsey Kirkland, ballerina; Tsarina Elizabeth of Russia.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Despite your best efforts, you may find yourself on the wrong side. You can make appropriate changes without alienating anyone.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will have good reason to complete the current mission on your own, despite an ally's attempts to join you in your efforts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone may make a very unusual request of you. Can you do what is asked? It's a question that must be answered.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your understanding of another's actions may not keep you from going through a personal trauma as you deal with your own related demons.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The dark and the light may blend in an unusual way. Your response will inspire others to take some firm action -- with or without you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't baby those in your care. You must allow them to explore their own autonomy -- even as you keep careful watch at all times.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your own perceptions may lead you astray for a while, until you realize that reality is quite different from what you once believed it to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can score an important "first," but don't try to expand your efforts too soon and bite off more than you can chew.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to learn something that changes your mind dramatically about something you always thought you understood fully.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You want to protect those in your care from the kinds of things that can threaten them from within. You know just where to start.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It may seem to be a perfect day as you get going, but later on someone may put a temporary damper on things. You can recover!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may realize that you have something in common with someone you have considered very different from yourself. Reach out your hand.
