Born today, you are one of the most straightforward and hardworking individuals born under your sign. Though there may be those who try to undermine you in some way and weaken you for reasons that are beyond your understanding, the fact is that you can stand up for yourself against any kind of threat and prevail -- even in the face of a life-threatening challenge. You may not be a fast learner; "genius" is not a word often associated with you. You do believe, however, that hard work is rewarding, and that tenacity will lead directly to the success you so fervently desire -- eventually. You are never interested in taking the easy road, or doing something that promises quick success -- for you know that such promises are always empty.
You are able to envision things that others cannot, and as a result you are able to do things that others have not -- likely securing your place in history. Indeed, you are almost certain to be remembered -- but for what? You will want to build your legacy very carefully, step by step, in order to avoid ignominy.
Also born on this date are: Vanessa Hudgens, actress; Nostradamus, physician and prophet; Patty Duke, actress; Spike Jones, bandleader; Charlie Rich, singer and songwriter; Shirley Jackson, author; Lee Remick, actress; Tycho Brahe, pioneering astronomer; Bill Buckner, baseball player; James H. Doolittle, aviator and World War II hero.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you have to offer is likely to be far more valuable to certain individuals than to others -- and you know exactly who they are.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You require further information before you're able to take a plan, fill in the blanks and put it into motion. It may come from anywhere!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to go searching for something for which you have developed a taste only recently. It's likely to be within reach.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Despite warnings against stating the obvious, you're going to have to do just that today in order to get certain people back in line.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can control only certain aspects of the day, and the rest you must accept without rocking the boat. Do what you can with what you have.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time for complaining, as it won't provide a solution that is sorely needed. Put your mind to work on the current puzzle.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Are you ready to share your honest opinion with someone who really needs to hear it? Once you do, nothing is likely to be the same again.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The key to your success lies in the approach you take to an initial challenge. How you carry on from there will be revealed very naturally.
