Born today, you are likely to score a great many "firsts" in your lifetime, and in the process, you are almost certain to change the rules and reshape the way things are done in order to benefit not only yourself, but all those who come after you and follow in your footsteps. You follow the rules, but that doesn't mean you agree with all of them, and you know how to work the system in order to change them from within.
You have a great deal of emotional strength, but more striking is your intellect, which enables you to wrap your head around virtually any issue or concept -- and this, in turn, allows you to know your enemies in a way that enables you to work your magic on them and persuade them that your way of seeing things is really the best way -- period.
Also born on this date are: Shirley Chisholm, politician; Virginia Mayo, actress; June Pointer, singer; Sir Winston Churchill, British prime minister; Mark Twain, author; Dick Clark, TV and music host; Robert Guillaume, actor; Ridley Scott, filmmaker.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are ready to make a promise to someone that you know you can keep -- but they may not be ready to hear it or take it the right way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself at the center of a maelstrom today -- but all that activity is nothing compared to what you can do with just one word.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a teammate may have to come up with something deceptive today in order to further your joint agenda. The "boss" may be suspicious.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have reached your limit as far as comment and criticism are concerned. You have a choice: stay the course or plot a life change.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Emotions churning beneath the surface tell you in no uncertain terms that you are not yet over something that happened to you some time ago.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- How you tell others what to do makes all the difference today. You must do your best to avoid an outburst of any kind -- if possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be told of someone's displeasure about something you've recently done, but it's best if you speak directly to the person involved.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The challenge you face today takes a different form from that which you expected -- though expectations were made to be dashed at this time.
