Born today, you thrive on experimentation of every sort, and because of this you're not one to be pinned down either by authority or by circumstances; rather, you insist on remaining free to do what you want when you want, and with whom you want! To say that you are independent and autonomous is an understatement; from your earliest days, you have demonstrated a kind of individuality that others couldn't compete with -- personally or professionally. Your greatest successes are likely to come to you only after you have experienced a great many failures along the way -- but that is nothing to fear, for you know how to learn from failure and to orchestrate one reversal of fortune after another until, at last, you do nothing but win.
You are not as stable as others may believe. You acknowledge all manner of forces that you believe hold sway over you in some way -- whether or not there is any empirical proof to support your ideas. You are fascinated by the occult and other unexplained phenomena, and you are certain that "luck" is much more than being lucky.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Swift, singer and musician; Jamie Foxx, actor; Dick Van Dyke, actor; Richard D. Zanuck, film producer; Steve Buscemi, actor; Ted Nugent, singer and guitarist; Christopher Plummer, actor; John Davidson, actor; Wendie Malick, actress; Mary Todd Lincoln, U.S. first lady; Carlos Montoya, flamenco guitarist.
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.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You know what you are supposed to do today, but is that enough? You're going to want to do more than the minimum required, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your ability to see through most deceptions will surely come in handy today, as you work to help a friend through a very difficult time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can let others know that someone close to you is in need of some assistance of a kind only you and others like you can provide.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Others are likely to gravitate toward you today for reasons that are, for now, unclear. Soon you'll understand the real forces at work.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let your mood spoil the fun for someone who has been looking forward to this day for quite some time. If necessary, stay out of the way!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- When you get a glimpse of what has happened not far from your home, you'll realize that you dodged a bullet. Count your blessings!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are willing to do much for a friend or loved one, but he or she must be specific when telling you what is really needed. You mustn't guess!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Both word and deed have consequences, and you're sure to recognize just what you have said and done to affect a certain situation today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can expect to get help from unknown sources today. When the time comes, you'll have the chance to express your gratitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you are waiting for is nearer than you might think -- but patience is still a virtue now and in the days to come. Don't get "antsy"!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone may accuse you of breaking the rules today, but in fact you're doing nothing of the sort -- and you can prove it in one fell swoop.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The time has come to pitch in to help a friend in need. Putting your money where your mouth is will surely demonstrate more than mere loyalty.
