Born today, you are a dreamer above all else, but you know how the world works and what makes it turn, and though you may choose to turn your back on much of that, you will no doubt have to navigate difficulties and harsh realities wherever you go and whatever you do. It is essential, therefore, that while you dream, you keep your eyes open and your wits about you, ready at all times to maneuver this way or that.
You are likely a loner, but you can work and play well with others when necessity requires it -- but being a true introvert, you tire of interaction very quickly and need a period of rejuvenation after every period of sociability. You like people, for the most part, but you can’t spend too much time in their company lest you lose touch with yourself.
Also born on this date are: Emily Dickinson, poet; Bobby Flay, celebrity chef; Michael Clarke Duncan, actor; Susan Dey, actress; Dan Blocker, actor; Raven-Symone, actress; Kenneth Branagh, actor and director; Dorothy Lamour, actress.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may attract criticism from those who don’t think you’re right for a given job -- but by day’s end, your suitability should be confirmed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can do much behind the scenes that enables others to take their place in the spotlight and get the results they’re after. Keep it up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have put your own needs and desires on a back burner for long enough. Today it’s time for you to prioritize yourself over others.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The plan you’ve concocted is likely to take others by surprise when it’s put into motion today -- and that’s what you were counting on!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your current interests may clash with those of a supposed ally. You must do what you can to avoid a serious conflict today -- or tomorrow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you did some time ago is likely to inform a few of today’s decisions. You must not think that it’s a good time to move backward, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you do in the privacy of your own home may well affect one or two people you’ve not thought of for quite a while. When will this be clear?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be called upon today to do far more than you had contracted to do, but you’re in the mood to help out, so why not say “yes”?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The satisfactory resolution to a tense situation is only just out of reach as the day begins. What can you do to close that gap?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s essential today that you express yourself clearly and directly whenever emotions are concerned. Don’t beat around the bush!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A lot of planning may have gone into today’s endeavors, and while you may not know it right away, it will surely have paid off, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You should be able to perform well today, whether or not you are under unusual pressure. You can lead the way with what comes naturally.
