Born today, you are likely to be troubled by the way the world works, and despite all of your efforts, you may actually be able to do very little to change it within the span of one lifetime. Fortunately, you tend to believe that you’ll have more than one go-around in which to make your influence over others and on the world at large felt to a degree that actually makes a difference, and because of that, you can bear the failures that you’re likely to experience during your current journey on planet Earth.
You have a few tremendous talents, and you’ll likely know what you want to do with them at a remarkably early age. There are those who will surely help you -- if you let them -- but no one is going to have your back if you refuse to acknowledge the importance of such protection and assistance. Always give credit where credit is due!
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.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are after the truth and nothing but the truth at this time, and the first thing you can do today is tell the truth about an odd encounter.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A chance meeting sends you in a different direction today from that which you had first chosen. Keep your eyes and ears open at all times.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be charged today with protecting those who cannot protect themselves. It’s a job you can do well so long as you remain objective.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Safety is likely to become a primary issue as the day progresses. You cannot afford to risk the many gains you’ve recently made.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Dangers can be anticipated and avoided today, provided you are able to look things squarely in the eye and maintain a realistic outlook.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You’re in no mood to engage in meaningless banter about issues that really have nothing to do with you. Focus on what’s really going on!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You’re likely to receive two sets of instructions today -- one logical and one not. You’ll have to study both before knowing what to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A favor done for someone who has been distant from you for a while serves to close that distance -- at least emotionally. Tend to it soon.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Approaching everything in the most genuine manner possible is the key to your success today. Avoid promoting any deception.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An honest appraisal of a difficult situation lets you know just what you can and should do to help. Guard against becoming overcommitted.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be facing an unexpected challenge from one who feels a job can be done better a different way. Be prepared to plead your case.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your good humor can be quite disarming today. Say what you must about certain issues, but keep it light and positive at all times.
