Born today, you do not always have your feet planted firmly on the ground -- especially when you are exploring options and charting a course through new territory. You can be quite imaginative and you often let flights of fancy dictate your actions, putting your heart before your head and letting it lead you. Others may fault you for being a little too carefree; indeed, you are likely to encounter more than your share of dangers because of your unfettered approach to life, but you would have it no other way. You want to be free to do what you will, to respond naturally to what comes, and to make decisions that are based on what feels best rather than what you are told is the right thing to do. Highly creative, you seek a kind of satisfaction that only free expression can provide.
You trust in appearances, and as a result you may be fooled more than once by that which is not what it seems to be. Still, you believe in the old adage that "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush," so whatever you get will be just fine with you -- as long as you can use it to optimize your experiences and maximize your rewards.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Tyson Beckford, actor and model; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, French singer; Robert Urich, actor; Sir Ralph Richardson, actor; Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- No matter how far-fetched an idea may sound today, it's worth putting it into motion just to see where you end up. Nothing is permanent!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to make a very small error today from which you can learn a very big lesson. You may be tempted to repeat it -- but don't!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to get advice from someone who has been in your shoes before -- but that person may be unusually hard to find today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are responsible for more than you know. Others are waiting for you to come through so they can step forward and claim what's theirs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Synchronicity is the name of the game today, and you must do nothing that prevents those around you from working together in a creative way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to spend some time alone, but that luxury isn't likely to be afforded to you today as others ask for your time and attention.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Go after what you want, but don't tie your success to someone else's failure. You must continue to wish the best for others, even the competition.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Any kind of overreaction today is likely to make matters worse, so you'll want to keep your emotions in check no matter how bad things get.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's time to be the hero or the goat, and today that role has been prescribed for you by someone who knows you better than you do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to do something that you've long suspected would fall to you eventually -- and today is the day. Get it done!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're not in a position that will allow you to step outside your comfort zone with much confidence today -- but there is still much to be done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have a surprise in store for a friend or loved one, but don't jump the gun. Wait until all signs point to the perfect moment.
