Born today, you have been endowed with several unusual gifts, the most dominant of which is an ability to see things from a unique perspective. Because of this, you are never likely to say anything that is expected in any given situation -- or do what is expected, for that matter. You are not a cynic, but you are able to see the dark side of situations in a way that is perhaps more matter of fact than the outlook of anyone else born under your sign. You seem to know what makes other people tick, and you use this to your advantage without seeming to take advantage of anyone.
You are not always easy to approach, and you are often much more difficult to get to know than others who share your viewpoints and abilities. You are private, yes, and you are also somewhat solitary. This is not to say that you do not or cannot get along with others; you do, you can and you always will.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not likely to agree with those around you when it comes to assessing opportunity and danger. You're more daring than many.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You aren't likely to be anxious or nervous, despite what is on the line for you and those who have joined forces with you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will want to leave things the way they are so that you can work with what you know best. You'll have a little wiggle room.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You aren't willing to give in to pressure from afar. Focus on doing things your way and using all resources at your disposal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What goes on around you is worth noticing, but take care that you aren't distracted by something that is clearly not for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't always understand what those around you are up to, but today you're certain to know just what is going on, and why.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Control is the issue, and you're not likely to relinquish it for any reason. You're eager to see how this situation develops.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good day for taking chances, but not with something that cannot be reclaimed if it is lost. Avoid anything that is negative and permanent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can afford to take things a little more slowly than usual. The deadline you are facing can be met even if you play it safe.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're in need of a little more protection than usual. Others are aware of your plans, and they can certainly give you what you need.
