Born today, you have a strong personality. You're never afraid to take a position and stick to it, no matter how unpopular it may be -- or how unpopular it may make you! Right is right, as far as you are concerned, and must not be compromised. You will hold firm once you have adopted the "right" stance on any given issue, and you know how to explain your position in such a way that you can persuade others to switch over to your way of thinking. This is not, in your mind, any kind of turncoat behavior, but just the inevitable result of listening and learning. Indeed, you are willing and able to do the same, though you will rarely conclude that your point of view is seriously in error.
Your success is likely to come in waves; at times you will be riding high, enjoying both accomplishment and popularity, and at times you will fade, having little to boast of in the way of results or acclaim. All in all, however, you'll learn to ride these waves well -- and looking back, you'll remember the high points most of all.
Also born on this date are: Shirley Chisholm, politician; Virginia Mayo, actress; June Pointer, singer; Sir Winston Churchill, British prime minister; Mark Twain, author; Dick Clark, television host; Robert Guillaume, actor; Ridley Scott, filmmaker; Gael Garcia Bernal, actor.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you want most is likely to be yours before you know it, but you must make sure that you notice it soon after it arrives!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Progress may be slow, but it will be steady. You'll be able to enjoy the scenery as you plow through a busy day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good time to explore developing tastes -- and to share with a friend or loved one the kinds of things you're eager to try in the future.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your memory will jog you into a reverie that leads to one discovery after another -- though none of them may be particularly new.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to be truthful with a friend, but not overwhelming. How you say what you have to say is just as important as the message itself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Not everyone is willing to give you a second chance, so you must search carefully for those who will do you that favor now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Don't overstate the obvious; let it be self-evident if you can. At times, saying nothing is the best course of action.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your message to a friend or family member may not initially come out exactly as you had planned, but you can make yourself clear.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have a confession to make before the day is out, but the reaction you get may surprise you. You shouldn't be doing much of a penance!
