Born today, you aren't one for passing up an opportunity when you spot it, and you insist on being prepared for any and all eventualities. Your attitude toward life is simple: "If it can happen, it will happen" -- and for this reason you are always readying yourself for the things that can happen, not the things that should happen. You are likely to have a great many advantages over your rivals -- the strongest of which are likely to be your positive attitude and your tolerance of others. You truly think that variety is the spice of life!
You may be torn between professional opportunity and personal responsibility at times -- but where others would surely have to make a choice, you can often arrange things so that you are rarely if ever forced to compromise. You can serve yourself and others simultaneously.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Perkins, actress; Linda Evans, actress; Brenda Vaccaro, actress; Alan Shepard Jr., first American in space; Johnny Mercer, composer and songwriter.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others are depending on you to do precisely what you have said you will do -- no more and no less. You can make another's dreams come true.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your advice to another is likely to be "mind your own business" -- and, indeed, it's a good idea to take your own advice as well!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will want to communicate honestly and directly. Don't try to confuse another with double-talk, as it will only backfire on you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- News you receive early in the day will color your activities until nightfall and beyond. It may be time to circle the wagons.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The way you do certain things is likely to attract criticism, but you can weather anything that comes your way if you are true to yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself more deeply involved in a situation not of your making. Keep your eyes open and you'll spot a rare opportunity.
