Born today, you are always fascinated by the things you do not know, and you are driven to learn as much as you can about the world by experiencing it firsthand. You're not always eager to read about things in books; you would much rather jump into a situation headlong and learn what you must by encountering both the good and the bad that such a bold approach presents to you. You know which way you must go in almost any situation, but you are never afraid of taking a step back if you feel it will afford you a certain perspective that can lead to discovery, learning and progress.
You have a healthy respect for the past and all things that have to do with tradition and heredity. You understand that your endeavors never take place in a vacuum, but are only a part of a long chain of happenings that serve to inform your own affairs.
Also born on this date are: Deidre Hall, actress; Jane Pauley, TV journalist; Barbara Bel Geddes, actress; Dale Evans, actress; Dan Rather, anchorman; Michael Landon, actor and producer; Rob Schneider, actor and comedian; John Keats, poet.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're eager to see someone take wing and fly, and you can do much to encourage him or her to take the initiative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're trying too hard to keep things moving at a quick pace when a slower approach may actually serve you best.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone may think you're merely being a "sourpuss," but you are merely reacting to a few things that have been done to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're doing your best to follow all the rules, but some may have to be bent -- or even broken -- despite your best efforts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're losing control of something that you have long taken for granted. A loved one may be the only person to give you the honest truth.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Take care that you don't come on too strong when invited to share your honest opinion in an open forum. Choose your words carefully.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be more flexible than usual, especially when dealing with anyone whose principles differ dramatically from your own.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have the chance to reconnect with a friend who has been out of the picture for a while -- though not as far away as you might have thought.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're waiting for someone to ask what you want to do, rather than telling you what to do -- but you may not hear it from many.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Something is missing, and you know where to find it, but do you have the time and resources you need to devote to such a search?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't let another's bad behavior affect your own. Good humor is one of your most valuable tools at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- That which is familiar will bring you comfort, but you will be tempted to engage in something new and rather risky.
