Born today, you are a highly spirited, often quite outspoken individual who does not hesitate to rock the boat when it's necessary -- either to further your own agenda or to ensure success for someone else. Like so many other Sagittarians, you are concerned, first and foremost, with your own well-being and progress -- but that doesn't keep you from caring for others, tending to others and working for others when there is room in your life to do so.
You do your best to keep yourself in tip-top shape, for you know that to be healthy is to be capable -- and you prove this time and again. You can be rather self-indulgent at times, enjoying too much of the things that should be only occasional or even rare pleasures. Others worry about you at such times, surely -- but such periods of gluttony do not usually last long.
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.
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.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Free exploration of all the possibilities before you isn't likely to be possible today until someone in charge gives you express permission.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The results you get today may not satisfy you entirely -- but though you sense that something is not right, you won't know what for some time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're willing to try some experimental methods in order to accomplish what you have promised -- but things may go somewhat awry late in the day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An error that you think can be overlooked by others may actually set you back further than anticipated. You must address this problem.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You fear that any complaints you make will fall upon those who don't want to hear them -- but that is likely to happen only if you take them to the wrong parties.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Despite your rather cavalier attitude toward certain activities, there is a right way and a wrong way, and they're not interchangeable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are eager to do what can be done today -- but you want to know that it is, indeed, possible. You want to avoid anything quixotic!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You won't be able to pin the blame for any misdeeds on anyone else today. You're in charge of yourself, and what you do is your responsibility.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You cannot trust that things will work out without some sort of guidance on your part, but you needn't take an overly aggressive stance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are eager to show someone what can be done -- and what can't. You must be clear, concise and on your game at all times.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It may be necessary for you to keep a written record of the day's events, as you may be called upon to recount them at some point.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Like it or not, there is such a thing as "too much of a good thing" -- and today you'll be introduced to the concept in no uncertain terms.
