Born today, you have been endowed with a great deal of raw talent, but it's not likely to amount to anything if you are not willing to work hard to develop it to the fullest. You can be one of the very best of your chosen profession if you work at it, but it is just as likely that you will remain a frustrated failure if you expect things to be handed to you on a silver platter. Still, you have been given the tools you need to enjoy remarkable success. Your interactions with others are never one-sided; you will always consider another's needs alongside your own and work to improve his or her state just as you work to improve yours.
Also born on this date are: Vanessa Hudgens, actress; Patty Duke, actress; Spike Jones, bandleader; Charlie Rich, singer and songwriter; Shirley Jackson, author; Lee Remick, actress; Tycho Brahe, astronomer; Bill Buckner, baseball player; Jimmy Doolittle, aviator and war hero.
On two or more occasions in your lifetime, you are likely to spawn ideas that can take the world by storm. These are ideas that must be developed, for they are the kinds of things that can really make a difference for many people.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An alternative is more attractive to you today than the primary course of action you've decided on. There's time to make a change.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are misinterpreting someone else's actions at this time. There's no reason for you to think that you are a target of any kind.
