Born today, you are one of the upstanding and outstanding examples of the Sagittarius native -- dignified, charming and always ready with a wise turn of phrase or a word of comfort for someone in need. Indeed, your care for those around you is perhaps your most marked trait; you will always do what you can to lift others up, rather than tear them down. You treat everyone with a kind of fairness and equality that is rare indeed. You can, at times, overlook the obvious in favor of that which is harder to discern, and this can make things difficult for you!
You can be rather vain and self-important at times, and when it comes to work you almost always assess yourself highly; you're never one to feel that you are ill-equipped to do what lies before you. Occasionally, you will find yourself overshadowed by someone who is all you want to be. Pay attention and learn, for you can always improve yourself!
Also born on this date are: Tyra Banks, model; Marisa Tomei, actress; Wink Martindale, game show host; Jay Z, rapper; Rainer Maria Rilke, poet; Jeff Bridges, actor.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are precisely where you should be right now, whether it feels that way or not. What someone tells you needn't knock you off center.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have something up your sleeve right now that can certainly come in handy if things start to go wrong. Don't tip your hand, however!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your focus may be rather unclear for a time today, until you have rid yourself of distractions that are competing for your attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find yourself somewhere quite unusual before the day is out, but your state of mind is sound, and you can surely cope quite well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It may take you some time to get up to speed today, but once you do, you'll be squarely in the race. A competitor pushes you to be your best.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day for you to consider what might happen if things don't come out the way you had planned. All options are open to you right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your day is likely to be divided into three distinct phases, though not everyone will appreciate how flexible you must be as a result.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not get all you feel you have coming to you, but by day's end you should be better off than you were in the morning. Share the wealth.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone you know well is likely to surprise you with a decision -- but it's one that you know will work out well in the end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will want to keep track of things as they develop today -- without getting in the way and influencing events one way or another.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're feeling ill at ease about something that is usually quite routine. You can make a small change that will have a big effect.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be asking yourself some important questions at this time, but today the answers are likely to open your eyes to a new opportunity.
