Born today, you are one of the most thoughtful individuals born under your sign, but you sometimes run the risk of living too much in your head and hiding away from the outside world. Mixing and mingling may take effort, but it is essential to your complete happiness and contentment. You are not meant to be alone, though it is all too easy for you to remain alone if you don't make a solid effort to get out and about among the people of the world. Once you do take those important steps toward socialization, you will find that you can get along with almost anyone -- even though you can be somewhat competitive. You can make a game out of nearly anything, and in this way you can make even the hardest work quite fun for everyone.
Rather analytical, you can wrap your mind around almost any problem, from the philosophical to the mathematical, from the ethical to the practical. Indeed, others are likely to look to you for the kind of guidance they can get nowhere else. Your perspective is broad, and your method of expressing yourself is clear and concise.
Also born on this date are: Emily Dickinson, poet; Bobby Flay, celebrity chef; Michael Clarke Duncan, actor; Susan Dey, actress; Dan Blocker, actor; Kenneth Branagh, actor and director; Dorothy Lamour, actress; Fionnula Flanagan, actress; Chet Huntley, newscaster; Patrick Flueger, actor; Raven-Symone, actress; Nia Peeples, actress and singer; Una Merkel, actress.

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to be the recipient of some good news. A friend is willing to back you up in a way that is new and exciting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not willing to put down your tools and take up someone else's -- unless you know that your efforts will develop into something bigger.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not understand all the messages that are coming your way. See if you can focus only on the ones sent directly to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A high percentage of your intended audience has already made up its mind, but you have much to say that could exert a very subtle influence.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What do others have that you so desperately want? The fact is that you are lacking nothing that you truly need at this time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The more you do early in the day, the more you'll be able to add to your memorable list of accomplishments. Keep up the pace.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be willing to sort through available data and interpret the trends that you observe. Others are making decisions similar to yours.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are able to do much more than you have promised, but you don't want to sell yourself short. What you have to offer is worth a lot!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be able to post a record of sorts, but take care! A close rival is watching and may be learning how to become more competitive.
