Born today, you have a great deal of charisma, and you can often progress simply on the strength of your personality. This doesn't mean that you do not have to work your way through life's labyrinth; on the contrary, you will have much work to do -- but the opportunities that arise for you are those that are secured because of who you are, not what you say or do. At your best, you are inspired and driven, compelled to do your best in any given situation. You are both thoughtful and highly emotional.
You can be rather volatile at times, particularly when you feel you are being "attacked" in some way -- and especially by critics. You have nothing against disagreement, but you cannot abide the kind of hurtful criticism that some engage in simply as a matter of sport. You are no fan of "trolling," and you will lash back in aggressive and memorable fashion.
Also born on this date are: Nikki Sixx, musician; Jermaine Jackson, singer; John Kerry, U.S. senator and secretary of state; Rita Moreno, actress; Brenda Lee, singer; Mos Def, rapper; Donna Mills, actress; Max Born, physicist; Fiorello La Guardia, New York City mayor.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A threat looms, but you can minimize it by doing precisely what comes naturally to you. A friend or partner is there to back you up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're sure to conflict with someone whose attitude and outlook are very different from your own -- but this fight isn't going to last long.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your behavior today may confuse those who know you best, as it doesn't seem to be in line with your current ambitions. You have a secret.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must guard against overindulgence today, as there is certainly such a thing as too much. You know where the line is; observe it!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can turn fantasy into reality today -- but you must take care that a certain someone isn't put in any kind of compromising position.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Overcomplicating things at this juncture will only serve to set you back, and you may not be able to make up the time. Keep it simple today!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to look more closely at what those on the other side are doing today in order to determine your best course of action.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The clock is ticking, and you have much to do before the alarm sounds. Be sure to delegate -- but keep tabs on those working with and for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to engage in something of a power play today if you want to remain in your current position -- one that favors your efforts.
