Born today, you don't have to be loud, brash, dramatic or aggressive in order to get your points across. Indeed, the more soft-spoken you are, the more persuasive you will be -- for when you raise your voice, you can be quite off-putting, and where's the value in that? You are likely to learn very early that an easy manner, a quiet tone, a willingness to listen and a healthy dose of patience are all you need to succeed -- and fortunately, you have all of these traits and abilities.
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress; Noel Clarke, actor.
You have a keen mind and the ability to understand and manipulate all manner of facts and figures. This will surely help you during the lean times, when you must spend very wisely and work very efficiently -- and when you are doing well, too, for you never want to go wild and throw away your hard-earned profits.
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 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have cause to reunite with one of your favorite collaborators today. Take care, however, that something sneaky isn't going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You want to be dealing only with the essentials today, so you must have others clear away anything that distracts you from your purpose.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You feel as though you're in charge of something that cannot be pulled off -- but help is on the way. Your confidence will increase soon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A little bit goes a long way today. Of what, you ask? Almost anything -- if it springs from your imagination. Stick to business.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may wish to be sharing something else with a friend, but it is what it is. You can make the best of this situation by being honest.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The one person with whom you hope to be dealing today may be unavailable to you, so you'll have to make enough time to train someone else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Those who know how to do what you ask will surely be favored today -- but some of those who don't may deserve a second or third chance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be mistaken for someone else today -- at least on one occasion when it makes things tricky for you. Try reversing course quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Quiet work gets the job done today. There's no reason to attract attention to your efforts, as that's only likely to slow you down.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What goes on behind the scenes matters more than you think, so you must be sure to walk through the wings and clear out anything unnecessary.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's not the performance itself that you object to, but someone's complete lack of intention. You're not in the mood for aimless activity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may receive only a fraction of the praise you expect to receive today -- but if you really think about it, this makes perfect sense.
