Born today, you seem to enjoy keeping people off balance, and you do this in any number of ways -- but your most effective method is to reinvent yourself on occasion so that no one really knows which version of "you" they are dealing with at any given moment. This can be quite dangerous, however -- not only for those in your life, but for you as well -- because it can lead you to lose track of your true self and pull you away from your moral and ethical center.
Your confidence is contagious; you never engage in a team effort of any kind without building up those around you to the point that they are able to make their dreams come true. Among friends you inspire admiration and loyalty.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Cicely Tyson, actress; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, French singer; Robert Urich, actor; Sir Ralph Richardson, actor.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may be quite easy to put a temporary solution into motion today, but this will do you no good in the long run. Anticipation is a must.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to change your strategy today when you realize that a rival is coming at you with a formidable new weapon. Take cover for a time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have had to take time off to deal with a family issue, but it's time to swing back into action. Others won't wait any longer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must respect people's boundaries today -- including your own. You don't want to do anything that pulls you out of your comfort zone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may realize quite suddenly that you've made a mistake that all have been aware of except you. Fix it now and it needn't become a problem.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have the advantage today, though you may not know it. Keep doing what works for you, and keep experimentation to a minimum for now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have much to offer today, but there is someone on the scene who is attracting more attention. The more anxious you get, the worse it is.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Keeping the lines of communication open today is likely to depend entirely on you, but you may not be able to rely wholly on technology.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Are you ready to get your head in the game? There's no substitute for steady concentration at this time, and others are playing well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have a chance to look back at one or two key moments to determine the best course to take today. Don't let anyone stand in your way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your view of a certain conflict is different from those of people who are directly involved, and this allows you to see a solution where there was none.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must ask for what you want or need in a manner that is unmistakable. You cannot afford to be misunderstood -- or, worse, refused outright.
