Born today, you are quick to assess almost any situation. Your ability to see around corners and far into the distance to anticipate coming events will certainly serve you well, raising you to dizzying heights in your chosen field. Take care, however, for if you ever begin to think of yourself as infallible or invulnerable, you are likely to fall from those great heights. You must always look at yourself with a clear eye; that ability to see the truth is nowhere more valuable than when you are assessing yourself!
You make a fine team player, but you are also able to do great things entirely on your own. Indeed, you may vacillate dramatically from solitary to group efforts throughout your lifetime; when you are working alone, you want to be part of a team, and vice versa. In this regard, you are never quite content.
Also born on this date are: Lebron James, basketball player; Tiger Woods, golfer; Tyrese Gibson, singer; Davy Jones, singer; Meredith Vieira, TV journalist; Michael Nesmith, singer and musician; Sandy Koufax, baseball player; Jack Lord, actor; Sean Hannity, talk show host; Rudyard Kipling, author and poet; Bo Diddley, musician; Patti Smith, singer; Tracey Ullman, actress and comedian; Russ Tamblyn, actor; Bert Parks, pageant host.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your outlook is good, and your vision of the future is clear and detailed. All you have to do right now is put things into motion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- An option you had turned down only yesterday proves far more attractive today. This signifies a change in perspective, but what's the reason?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ability to put things in the plainest possible terms comes in handy all day long as you persuade others of the value of your position.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be willing to take things in a new direction today. Someone close to you is dubious, but he or she will understand your need to act.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your relationship with a family member, while always complicated, is likely to take an unusual turn today. A hidden influence is at play.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be flooded with information throughout the day, but only some of it is truly pertinent and can be applied to your situation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- As you face a certain inevitability, all options must be on the table today. A friend alerts you to a surprising turn of events.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- News you receive today may not sit well at first, but you will soon recognize an opportunity where at first there seemed to be none.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A long-distance collaboration works out better than expected. Think what you can do, very soon, face-to-face in the same room!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Things aren't likely to be as quick or easy as you had hoped, but you can get by if you trust your instincts. Don't try to be too clever!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have more than one good reason for doing what you must do today -- but someone will surely object despite the strength of your position.
