Born today, you are down-to-earth and rarely one to let your emotions overtake your solidly rational approach to life. Sometimes called "blunt," you are plainspoken to a fault. You prefer the truth over all else -- even when it may in fact turn on you in some way. You are not always right, but you are always moving toward that which you can trust and rely on, whether at work or in relationships. You will go out of your way to support the underdog in any grievous situation. You see yourself as easily approachable.
You may not always enjoy the best health, and you may be unusually subject to fatigue -- but you don't let physical ills stand in your way. You will continue moving forward even when it seems that circumstances have all conspired against you. You firmly believe that as long as you keep trying, you will succeed eventually.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be waiting on others on at least two important occasions today, one of which can be anticipated. Brace yourself for the other.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time for your confidence to abandon you; you need faith in your abilities to see you through an assignment that is daunting indeed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have much in common with a certain rival, and today you can make that awareness work for you as you seize the advantage -- perhaps permanently.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be very clear in your desires today; a vague notion of what you want isn't enough as you navigate at least one slippery slope.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been heading down the same path for some time, and today you may realize that you have the freedom to make a change if you so desire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You cannot guarantee another complete satisfaction today, but you can certainly offer some enjoyment as you both face key challenges.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to step back and let someone else take the leading spot today. That person has much to offer you -- if only indirectly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You and a competitor may choose to work together toward a common goal today -- and that can set the tone for many days yet to come.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to take certain shots standing up today -- or be prepared to do so, which amounts to the same thing. Center yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An early start yields an early end to the day if all goes right. If not, it at least gives you something of a head-start.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may spend much of your time today waiting for things to line up just so -- and there's only so much you can do to make that happen.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A shoddy job attracts more than criticism today; it also puts you in a vulnerable position from which it is difficult to extricate yourself.
