Born today, you are always on the lookout for a new way to prove yourself, for you have been blessed -- and cursed -- with a driving need to do, to accomplish, to stake your claim and to announce yourself to the world not once, not twice, but continually. And this you can surely do, for you have also been endowed with tremendous abilities -- the kind that attract attention and inspire admiration and even awe from others.
You are highly intelligent and able to wrap your head around the most complex ideas and concepts. What is odd, however, is that you sometimes get tripped up by that which is very simple -- spelling a word, finding your way to the market, remembering the next thing on your to-do list or what have you. When this happens, it's usually because you are also thinking of some very big things simultaneously.
Also born on this date are: Sinead O'Connor, singer; Teri Hatcher, actress; Kim Basinger, actress; John Rubinstein, actor; Jim Morrison, singer; James Galway, flutist; David Carradine, actor.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to see things in a very different way from how a rival sees them -- and yet you are both after the same things overall.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's important that you devise for yourself a roadmap of sorts so that once you are on your way you will be able to follow a clear path.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Certainty may be in short supply today, but that doesn't mean you can't progress according to plan. Even guesswork can pay off today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The more cautious you are, the more likely you will be to be error-free today -- but there are occasions on which a little daring can pay off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've laid the groundwork very well, and now it's time to get a project moving. One thing still stands in your way, and you must address it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The more detailed you are in your preparations today, the more successful you will be at addressing complications if and when they arise.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone may accuse you of being unrealistic, but the truth is that you are considering far more very real likelihoods than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's essential that you promote an idea with confidence today -- before others lose interest. You must strike while the iron is hot.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're tempted to drop one thing in favor of another today, but that may only be a reaction to your own frustration. Take no rash action!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can approach almost any problem with confidence today, as you know where you'll want to be by day's end. Others ask many questions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to make sure that you've not overlooked any details as you prepare a presentation of sorts. You're likely to get high marks!
