Born today, you are likely to play important roles in the affairs of others even as you tend to your own personal and professional growth day in and day out. You crave involvement of all kinds, and you are never more content than when you are both exercising your considerable talents and doing things that benefit others. You are able to balance self-concern with a genuinely philanthropic outlook; you can do for yourself quite successfully what you do for others, and vice versa. You hold your friends and family quite close.
Because you like to be where things are happening, you must always be as independent and mobile as possible so you can get anywhere at a moment's notice. You're not going to miss out because you're not able to get somewhere! You do not always seek material rewards.
Also born on this date are: C. Thomas Howell, actor; Larry Bird, basketball player; Tom Waits, singer, actor; Johnny Bench, baseball player; Ellen Burstyn, actress; Ted Knight, actor; Eli Wallach, actor; Louis Prima, musician and singer.
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.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is no time for you to be strict or uncompromising. Everyone is going through something of his or her own, and you must respect that.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A misunderstanding must not be allowed to drive a wedge between parties. You can help everyone come to an agreement that works for all.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Is there a way to beef up a project without increasing the demands on your support staff? If so, you'll surely want to go in that direction.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Let no one suggest that you are doing anything to make things more difficult today. Indeed, you're doing quite the opposite -- and quite well!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are interested in moving past the basics as quickly as possible, and today you'll have the opportunity to do just that -- if you are ready.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can say a great deal today by not saying anything -- and most people will get the message. A compromise is required during evening hours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have every reason to pursue things in your own way today without having to bend to another's will. Something big appears on the horizon.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to take a quieter approach than usual with someone who is not living up to expectations. You needn't call out him or her.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your imagination is likely to take you further today than any other tool at your immediate disposal. Pay attention to your dreams!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The writing on the wall seems clear, but you may not be willing to concede to one who has claimed victory. This isn't over yet, surely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your memory serves you quite well today, as you are put in a position that requires you to relive certain episodes from your past.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may encounter those who are critical of you for not keeping up with the way things are done these days. You know more than they do!
