Like many of those on the Aquarius-Pisces cusp, R&B princess Rihanna tends to experience life like it's an extreme sport -- and 2009 may have been her most extreme year yet.

The good news? Those born this week tend to emerge from hardship with a hard-won optimism -- and with a rumored new boyfriend, baseball star Matt Kemp, by her side, Rihanna seems poised for better times.
