Born today, you are so focused on what you want and how to get it that you can sometimes neglect those peripheral issues that can actually be quite important to you -- and this is something that will prove a lifelong challenge to you, in both personal affairs and business pursuits. Once you learn to go after what you want and still maintain your peripheral sense of what is going on around you, you will surely be able to maximize your own rewards in all things. You cannot avoid all related setbacks, but you can surely minimize the likelihood of recurrent problems.
You do not like to stay in one place for any great length of time, and as a result you may prove quite peripatetic throughout your lifetime, traveling here and there and experiencing the different kinds of things that others places, peoples and cultures have to offer.
Also born on this date are: David Schwimmer, actor; k.d. lang, singer; Pat Buchanan, conservative commentator; Ray Walston, actor; Burt Lancaster, actor; Warren G. Harding, U.S. president; James K. Polk, U.S. president.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be guided in the right direction by someone whose experience is less than yours, but whose instincts are much keener.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll reveal a secret about yourself that wins positive reactions from someone who is not always easy to impress.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A look back at your creative history will reveal something that takes you by surprise even now. Your critics may be silenced for a while.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Information is likely to be shared that results in benefits you cannot yet anticipate. It's time for you to seek the key.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When you tell others how you do it, they are likely to be somewhat incredulous -- though you can prove that your methods are indeed valid.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can entertain those around you simply by doing and saying what comes naturally. You have an attractive though puzzling nature.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A contest with another comes down to a matter of taste -- and what you think is excellent may well serve to cool another's reactions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's a good day to examine your priorities. Someone may be trying to insinuate himself into a private situation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can't undo what has already been done, though you may be concerned with how to spin reports that things are not as they should be.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can rely on someone who claims to be an expert -- but not, at first, for the reasons you anticipate. A surprise is in store.
