Born today, you are a generally optimistic individual and are determined to have a positive impact on the world in which you live. Whether your contribution is large or small, it is likely that it will be remembered, and you will be credited for making a difference. You can be charming and courteous, and yet you can turn a cold shoulder toward those who do not give you the time of day; you want to be acknowledged! You can be quite a good conversationalist, and in fact when you get going it can be quite difficult for anyone to get you to stop. You can immerse yourself in specific issues, but you prefer to consider the "bigger picture" that affects the most people.
There are those who may think you are not cut out for the big challenges that life may throw at you, but this is an unfair assessment. The truth is that you are not one to be thrown into disarray by bad luck; you will calmly face almost any turn of fortune -- and you do what you can to help others do the same. You're never overly dramatic about things.
Also born on this date are: Holly Marie Combs, actress; Daryl Hannah, actress; Julianne Moore, actress; Ozzy Osbourne, rocker; Andy Williams, singer; Bobby Allison, auto racer.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may lose your bearings for a time today, and you must trust a friend to help you reorient yourself. You can return the favor very soon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A chance encounter proves entertaining to some degree today, but you'll still be left with something undone -- or unsaid, perhaps. Tend to it!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to repeat yourself in order to be understood fully today. Your audience may not be used to having you take command.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can combine the mental and the physical with great success today, as you tackle something that requires more conscious effort than usual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll benefit from more time to yourself today as you let someone else take charge of something that is usually up to you. Explore options.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will want to make yourself available to those who may have questions, but you must stop short of stepping in and doing what they must do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may still be waiting for information that can prove instrumental to you as you attempt something others are not able to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your safety depends on doing things according to the rules today. You can bend them only so far before the authorities will take notice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you see or feel in front of you today is in line with what you've expected, but there are still a few surprises in store.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not have as much time available to you today as you had counted on, so you must increase efficiency as you tend to routine business.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's a good day to let someone else take charge, if only temporarily. You can learn a thing or two about how to run things.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can fill in the blanks today by employing your imagination to the fullest, especially in situations that take you by surprise.
