Born today, you are not the kind to accept criticism with tremendous grace. In fact, you may at times come completely unglued when someone offers up his or her honest opinion of your work or performance -- and for this reason it is best that you adopt a strict policy of discounting anyone's opinion. You insist on remaining free of the kinds of ties that result in nothing but personal debt of one kind or another, so deep is your desire for complete independence and autonomy. The risk, of course, is that you may be alone for much of your life.
You never try to conceal your feelings from others -- nor could you if you tried, they are so volatile and prevalent. You feel strongly about most things, and there are times when it may seem you do not even prioritize. You can be joyous or desperate at the drop of a hat.
Also born on this date are: Oksana Baiul, Olympic figure skater; Lisa Bonet, actress; Dwight Gooden, baseball player; Shigeru Miyamoto, video game designer; Daws Butler, cartoon voice actor; Burgess Meredith, actor.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may realize that something is not as it should be today, but it will very likely be difficult to persuade another that you are right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are likely to be disappointed when someone else tries to do what you have done so successfully in the past. Be patient!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Not everyone understands what you are up to at this time, so you must be patient with those who are not able to do as you expect.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time for you to show someone else just what you are capable of doing when the chips are down. Now is no time for any wasted effort!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be ready for hard times ahead, but one situation in particular is likely to challenge you more than you have reason to expect.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll be able to maneuver your way into a position that affords you a better view of where you are going -- and where you have been.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to be the first one to suggest a compromise if you want a current conflict to be resolved successfully.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be relying on others more than usual today, but one person in particular can be trusted to do precisely what you need.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself racing against the clock today -- but only because you want to prove to yourself that you can be on time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to be more forceful than usual if you want those around you to do what you want in the time allowed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're tempted to say or do something that you fear will be taken the wrong way by someone -- and that's an instinct you should heed!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Demands made on your time are not likely to be unclear or unrealistic -- but you may simply not be in the mood to do what you are told.
