Born today, you are not always to be counted on to do what is appropriate, expected or allowed. Indeed, you have much of the mischief-maker in you. Whether it is by design or simply a product of your personality, you are likely to steer clear of the ordinary and do precisely what you want to do -- no matter how much it may rub others the wrong way, and even if it gets you into trouble personally or professionally. It's not that you want to be seen in a negative light -- on the contrary, you crave approval -- but you certainly go about gaining it in unusual and difficult ways. This is because you care more about being true to yourself than to doing things the easy way.
When it comes to romance, you are no less unconventional in your tastes and behaviors than in any other aspect of your life. For this reason, it will be easy for others to decide, once and for all, whether you are right for them -- not that it matters, of course, because you will pursue only those you want, not waiting to be pursued or chosen by them.
Also born on this date are: Sinead O'Connor, singer; Teri Hatcher, actress; Kim Basinger, actress; John Rubinstein, actor; Jim Morrison, singer; James Galway, flutist; David Carradine, actor.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not respond as expected to someone else's offer of cooperation. The truth is, you are trying to mold a different future for yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's important for you to keep in touch with others throughout the day. Information that is shared freely can be useful to all.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Changes may have to be made to something that you thought was all done. Flexibility is the key to success, in this and other endeavors.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must ask for help in time to receive it; wait too long, and you may not be able to take advantage of what is offered.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're feeling passionate, but undisciplined. See if you can't put things into better order than they've been in recently.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have the chance to tell someone -- or possibly more than one person -- precisely what you think. Don't hold back!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The truth is something that you can manage only if you're willing to look at yourself honestly. Otherwise, it may be too much for you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll need to work with the most up-to-date tools and materials if you want your efforts to be truly competitive.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Why go on and on when a simple sentence can do the trick? An economy of words will surely pave the way for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Events may seem to transpire against you, but you'll come out on top -- surprising your competitors and even your friends.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What crosses your mind early in the day will surely pay off later on when everything falls into place just as you had imagined.
