Born today, you are never content so long as there is a mystery that you might be able to solve. You are by nature a curious individual, driven to uncover the truth when it is concealed, and compelled to discover and reveal what lies at the heart of that which has not previously been explained. You are a born trailblazer, never happy to follow in another's footsteps unless it leads you, sooner rather than later, to your unique path to personal discovery and overall success. There are those who call you "one of a kind," and while this may be an overstatement, the fact remains that though there may be others similar to you, you will always be recognized for being none other than yourself. You crave distinction for doing that which no one else can do -- or doing something in a way that no one else can.
You are able to see the good and the bad, put them together in your mind, and still come up with a positive outlook on the world. You are certainly no Pollyanna, but your realism isn't the kind that crosses over into cynicism. You derive a great deal of hope and inspiration from the sunrise every morning.
Also born on this date are: Savannah Guthrie, reporter and morning TV co-anchor; Louis Pasteur, scientist; John Amos, actor; Sydney Greenstreet, actor; Eva LaRue, actress; Johannes Kepler, scientist and astronomer; Marlene Dietrich, actress; Gerard Depardieu, actor; Cokie Roberts, journalist and author; Oscar Levant, pianist, composer and comedian.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to get started much earlier than usual today -- and work much later into the evening. Some routine tasks may have to wait.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You cannot ignore forever what you've put on a back burner; today is a good day to address certain issues that have been lying dormant.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An important issue is likely to be revived by someone who isn't satisfied that everything was dealt with properly the first time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- How you interpret certain developments today will make all the difference -- and will send an important message to those working against you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have what it takes to guide others to the threshold of success today -- but remember, you cannot make them walk through the door.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- How you start the day will affect everything you do until you put everything aside temporarily at day's end. Good humor can work wonders.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel guilty about certain decisions you have recently made -- but did you really have a choice? You must face a vocal critic.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have much less time than expected to complete a certain comprehensive task. Fortunately, preparation for another serves you well now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll have the chance to show others just what you're made of today, and what you can accomplish -- but can you meet everyone's demands?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone may suggest working together so that you can lighten the load for both of you. His or her plans do not align with yours, however.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- There's little point in starting the day fretting over the thing you cannot control. Instead, focus on what you can influence.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to want to present yourself in a manner that puts others at ease today. Don't rock the boat or go against the grain.
