Born today, you have what it takes to attract a great deal of attention to yourself at any given moment, and though this may result in personal advancement and gain, what really counts for you is doing things for others -- and you can surely use your natural charisma, talents and communication skills to promote ideas that benefit those around you in addition to yourself. You are not always at home in the trenches doing the day-to-day work; rather, you are better suited to a position near the top that allows you to think and to come up with plans that are implemented by others. You are a natural leader.
You have the ability to remain true to yourself even when the world seems to be conspiring against you and your ideals -- which is something you're certainly going to have to get used to if you wish to survive and succeed. You may, at times, feel as though you are in it alone.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to give an ally a bit more time to do what is required -- and what you know he or she can do very well indeed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- "It's a keeper!" That's what you'll be saying about something you merely stumbled across -- and you're not in the mood to share, either!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Address issues directly and they're not likely to develop into anything you cannot handle with ease. Strike while the iron is hot!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll find that good humor and a willingness to laugh at yourself will surely serve you well throughout an otherwise trying day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The wisdom you display will be appreciated by those who have not experienced what you have -- and by those who have, as well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- They say you cannot please all the people all the time, but today you may come quite close. Your charm carries the day, surely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now is no time to deceive those who are deserving of nothing but the truth. Any attempt to distort the facts will surely backfire on you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to investigate reports of misbehavior; surely you are not guilty of all that has been said about you!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not want to face what someone else has in store today, but you will soon realize that real progress depends upon it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have something surprising up your sleeve, but today may not be the day to reveal it. You've waited this long, you can wait longer.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are not likely to respond to the kinds of cliche statements and answers that many will offer; you may want to be on your own.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You expected one thing but are likely to get something quite different today; even when all is said and done, you may be a bit disappointed.
