Born today, you do all you can to be different from other people -- even, at times, to the extent of becoming quite unusual in speech, habits and everyday behavior. But is the real you really so different from those around you? Not so much, actually -- but this is something that you are not likely to accept, because fitting in and being normal are, to you, anathema to an interesting life.
That you do not usually follow the rules doesn't mean you don't know and understand them and, indeed, when you do choose to do things by the book, you can be counted on to excel -- because you bring your own imagination to the fore and apply your unique perspective to whatever it is you are doing. So, in a sense, you can have it both ways: success following the rules and success breaking them, too!
Also born on this date are: Simon Helberg, actor; McKayla Maroney, Olympic gymnast; Tre Cool, drummer; Dame Judi Dench, actress; Kirk Douglas, actor; Donny Osmond, entertainer; Redd Foxx, comedian; Margaret Hamilton, actress.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Tensions rise on the home front today -- but not for the reasons you suppose. Look beneath the surface, and you'll find the cause, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Not everyone is ready to hear what you have to say today, but say it you must. You'll want to choose your words -- and timing -- with care.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll appreciate how much things are interconnected today -- but you'll be resistant to the influence that a certain someone is trying to exert.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will want to change course today the moment you discover that what someone recently warned you about is coming to pass. Be flexible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can learn an important lesson today by going against the grain and waiting for the reaction. Not everyone will tell it like it is, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not feel that you can express yourself openly today, because of the pushback you're already getting -- but your turn will come.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must decide what to do in the morning, and what can wait until afternoon hours. Once you've prioritized, you must follow through.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are determined to approach a tricky situation in a relaxed state of mind; take care that this is not misinterpreted in any way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A search leads you down a few unusual paths today -- but you're ready and willing to go wherever you are led on this particular hunt.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- That which happens in a random fashion is more likely to pique your interest today than anything that occurs in a controlled environment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The problem you are trying to solve is quite personal, and no one is likely to be in a position to help you out -- at least not just yet.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good time to reach out to someone who can educate you about a situation of which you're only now becoming aware. Listen and learn!
