Born today, you are not one to take things all that seriously -- on the surface. You are able to laugh at almost anything in a dry, cynical way that is all your own, yet beneath the surface you can appreciate the gravity and weight of any situation at which you laugh. This may seem like a curious contradiction, especially to those who know you only in passing, but those who know you well understand that this is a survival mechanism of sorts. They know that you actually feel things so deeply that if you did not laugh at the worst of things, you would succumb to them, and never be able to enjoy the best that life has to offer.
You are not easy to attract in a romantic sense; you have quite a hard shell and can be unapproachable at times. Indeed, many could mistake you for a Cancer native! When you do fall in love, however, it will almost certainly be for the long haul; you're not the kind to waste time on passing fancies.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're moving too quickly, perhaps, to appreciate all the details that are presented to you. It's a good day to slow the pace just a bit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be able to agree with the experts, but when it comes to personal taste, you're as much an expert as anyone else!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will be progressing in a manner that allows you to learn by doing. By day's end, you'll feel much more confident and capable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may feel as though you have been trapped, once again, by circumstances that don't favor your own personal choices.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others are trying to tell you what to do, but no one is telling you why. This is something you must find out on your own, apparently.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A routine request takes on greater significance than usual as the day wears on. You'll want to take a little more time before obliging.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can get rid of that which is no good for you, but it may take more time than expected. Now is the time to make a start.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Team efforts are favored, but you should be able to do things in such a way that your own independent efforts are recognized.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Distractions abound today. Focus on that which allows you to maintain your equilibrium. Don't believe everything you hear.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An expert has you wondering if you've prepared for a coming trial as thoroughly as necessary, but your instincts are keen.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Trust those who tell you things without elaboration or varnish. Anyone who spins too complicated a yarn must be doubted to some degree.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Unusual behavior must be given the attention it deserves, especially when it is a loved one who is acting strangely.
