Born today, you seem to think that things are destined to happen for you, that the stars have been set in a certain favorable alignment, and that the clouds will part when you bid them. Some of this may, in fact, be true! However, the fact that you are so sure of yourself and of your place in the world -- and the cosmos -- is a sign of overconfidence and an unwillingness to see things as they are. You would argue against this assertion, of course, but events will transpire in a way that proves you are not always the chosen one; things can, indeed, go against your ultimate desires and well-being. Still, you're not about to doubt yourself! No matter what happens, you will always feel special.
Is this mere egotism? One need only ask a loved one -- for it is your loved ones and closest friends who know you best, and who can reveal the truth about your self-esteem. You do not hide from those closest to you, and they know that confidence is only one part of the real you.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be called upon to fill in for someone you had thought was indispensible. You can do it, but don't expect it to be permanent.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to work on your social skills. Someone is eager to get to know you better, but your behavior has been a bit off-putting.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ability to see through almost any kind of disguise will come in handy, but you may not want to reveal all you know.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have more time than expected to do something that is not quite on the level. Part of your energies will go toward concealment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have a surprise in store for someone who has no idea that he or she is even in your thoughts. A turning point is fast approaching.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Those who pass you by may actually attract a great deal of your attention. You have something to learn from someone you do not know.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll receive instructions from someone who doesn't know any better than you what must be done. It may be time to improvise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're making a great many plans, but one in particular may suddenly seem much more vividly possible than you had supposed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're tempted to say or do something calculated to get a rise out of someone who has been ignoring you of late. Be brave!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You needn't pay close attention to what is going on around you in order to be affected in a way that makes a difference.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Seek a way out of a tricky spot; the search itself is bound to do you good, whether or not it yields the results you desire.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you want isn't likely to be available, but you can surely make the best out of a situation that others find quite troubling.
