Born today, you seem at times to be two very different people -- one who can be quite jovial and carefree, and one who is hardworking and even quite stern and unbending in a professional capacity. You can laugh at almost anything -- including yourself. Still, when you fly into a rage, others had better get out of your way, for you can lash out at anyone who stands between you and satisfaction. You don't spend a great deal of time evaluating yourself, and you operate in a manner that is far more instinctive than most Sagittarians, who often spend too much time planning things. You put great trust in chance encounters and "accidents."
You may, at some point in your life, become suddenly quite secretive -- about your relationships or your work. What causes this may never be known, but something is likely to happen to you that you feel you must conceal from others. This is a judgment that may, of course, be entirely false.
Also born on this date are: C. Thomas Howell, actor; Larry Bird, basketball player; Tom Waits, singer and actor; Johnny Bench, baseball player; Ellen Burstyn, actress; Ted Knight, actor; Eli Wallach, actor; Louis Prima, musician and singer.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is a good time to help another with a project that had nothing to do with you when it was conceived. A valuable partnership may be forged.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your memory of a past episode may differ from another's in a few subtle but significant ways. An examination reveals which is correct.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will find yourself dealing with two competing realities today. One has you doing things your way, and the other requires obedience.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can channel your considerable energy into a project that only you may be able to complete. Your expertise will be on display.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on those things that most attract your attention. You may have to yield the floor to someone with more experience than yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Harmony is certainly a worthwhile goal, and it can be achieved if you are willing to make certain concessions. Don't stand in your own way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something only you know how to do will prove even more valuable to you than usual today as you face a situation no one else seems to appreciate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have some trouble today mustering the patience to wait until the time is just right to do what could otherwise be done whenever.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must keep an open mind today as you head into something in which guesswork will figure prominently. You must be flexible!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't want to move so fast today that you don't see the world passing by; there are many lessons to learn from what you observe.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- While offering suggestions and guidance to others, don't forget to listen to what you have to say. It applies to you, too!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You run the risk of making a habit out of behavior that is only occasional. You must make conscious choices to ensure the desired outcome.
