Born today, you must always be careful not to overload yourself with responsibility, for the more you have to do, the less likely you are to do any of it well -- or, at least, as well as you should. The only thing that will serve you in this regard is to learn the word "no," and to learn how to use it judiciously to avoid those things that might simply be extraneous endeavors that afford no real joy or profit.
You are a hard worker and a conscientious one; you will do what you say, no matter how difficult it might be. You are at your best, of course, when you are doing something that allows you to develop your unique skills to their fullest!
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress; Ryan Carnes, actor; Noel Clarke, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Good manners count for a great deal today; don't be tempted to discard yours simply because someone doesn't say "please" and "thank you."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may feel as though circumstances are conspiring against you but, in fact, they are lined up in your favor in a way you don't yet recognize.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your way of seeing things will be shared by those closest to you -- but someone at a distance still isn't willing to make necessary adjustments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be tempted to do that which you have avoided for quite some time. Today you realize that much has changed and the odds have improved.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you cannot see the road before you clearly, you are better off taking another path. Obstacles you encounter today may prove quite hazardous.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you see is what you get -- at least for the first part of the day, until a rival sees what is going on and begins to work against you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can offer someone precisely what he or she wants, but you must recognize that there will be a price to pay. Can you afford this gesture?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21 -- Certain issues can be overlooked today, but one in particular will demand your attention until you have solved the problem at its core.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're after someone's approval today, and you may have it -- but not by asking for it directly. You must devise an indirect solicitation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Most people know what you're up to -- but they are not the ones to whom you are playing today. Your intended audience is in the dark.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself at the center of a conflict between the truth and a falsehood that threatens to damage your reputation irreparably.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't have to use big words today or go on and on in order to get your point across. One simple, timely utterance will do the trick.
