Born today, you are not one to pay much attention to the signs, warnings and indicators that direct the affairs of most ordinary individuals. You follow your own bliss, doing the things that content you, even when it means encountering resistance, challenges and criticism from others. You are quite talented, and in order to develop your many talents, you are quite sure that you must do things your way -- and so you do.
You have a great deal of personal style and charisma, and you may be widely imitated -- but never all that successfully. Perhaps part of the problem for those who want to be like you is that you are able to change yourself quite dramatically at the drop of a hat, embracing a whole new style. And why? Simply because you want to!
Also born on this date are: Taylor Swift, singer; Jamie Foxx, actor; Dick Van Dyke, actor; Richard Zanuck, film producer; Steve Buscemi, actor; Wendie Malick, actress; Mary Todd Lincoln, U.S. first lady; Carlos Montoya, guitarist.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are usually a proponent of the adage "honesty is the best policy" -- but today you see a certain danger in telling it like it is.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- This is a good time to conceal certain thoughts and feelings from those around you, lest they turn people against you in some way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A question answered is more valuable today than any other commodity -- so you are better off asking it as soon as it comes into your mind! Don't wait!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Respond to those who come to you without attempting to "tailor" your response to the prevailing circumstances. Honesty is honesty -- period.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Pay attention to all that happens accidentally, and let things fall where they may -- at first. Later in the day you can begin to push back.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Pay attention to the effect you have on others when you say what has to be said. Not today, perhaps, but tomorrow you can choose a new tack.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Preparations must be complete today before you put into motion the plans you've been making. A premature start leads to a premature end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though you are not being used to the best possible advantage at this time -- and so it is. Are you willing to wait your turn?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be taken seriously today, surely -- but will you be believed? The one does not guarantee the other -- as you will soon learn.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A cool and easy manner is advised today; you mustn't let yourself respond to someone's hot temper with one that is hotter still.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you are thinking may be at odds with how others view a given circumstance. Today you must do all you can to reconcile yourself and them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A clear view of what lies ahead can be yours today, provided you dispense with any sort of prejudicial thought. Take things as they come!
