Born today, you are not always the most stable individual born under your sign, but what you lack in conventionality or consistency you more than make up for in creative fire, passion and the desire to make your mark in ways that others have merely dreamed about in the past. You have been endowed with tremendous talent and the will to do what is necessary to make your way in almost any difficult career path. What gives you the advantage over most others, however, is your ability to let your passions soar, thereby transforming an otherwise ordinary endeavor into one that is memorable -- even game-changing. You will do what others will not, and that not only puts you ahead of the game more often than not, but it also brings you tremendous satisfaction when all is said and done.
While you are no stranger to danger, there are times when you may actively seek it out -- exposing yourself to risks that no "normal" individual would take on for any reason. There are those who say you are merely foolhardy and irresponsible; you freely admit that there is something of a daredevil in your makeup.
Also born on this date are: Sinead O'Connor, singer; Teri Hatcher, actress; Kim Basinger, actress; John Rubinstein, actor; Jim Morrison, singer; James Galway, flautist; David Carradine, actor.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have plenty of tools at your disposal, but it's not the readiness that makes the difference today, but your actual on-the-job performance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- No matter how detailed your plan or how many times you go over it ahead of time, you're likely to miss something. Don't let it get you down!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are confident that you can deal with anything that comes your way -- but you don't want to come across as too eager. Remain calm and collected.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know how to get certain things done better than anyone else, and today you're likely to enjoy more than one opportunity to prove it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may want to divide a certain duty into many smaller tasks and schedule your day so that you can deal with each one at a time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself in a situation that requires you to take the advice of someone you hardly know or do not know at all. This can work out well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll enjoy doing what someone else thought could not be done. Throughout the day, you can demonstrate your daring -- and your expertise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Focus on that which is most familiar to you. Don't let another distract you from what you know to be most important. Lead by example.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to switch roles with someone today to handle, together, a change in schedule. More surprises are in store, too.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have a little more time than expected today in which to get certain tasks completed. Use extra care when dealing with a friend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you expect to happen today is likely to happen -- but not necessarily in the way you had envisioned. You can adjust accordingly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your presence and influence are sure to be felt today, both professionally and personally. Someone you know combines the two.
