Born today, you can be rather mercurial at times, even contrary and irascible, but overall you are a positive individual who is so eager to succeed in life that you will do anything to reach your goals -- even if it is unexpected, unconventional or possibly socially unacceptable. You have a deeply romantic spirit, and you will always pursue an adventure when the opportunity arises. You have what could be called a rather old-fashioned view of yourself and your place in the world; you fancy yourself a hero of sorts, in the ancient mold, and you enjoy coming to the rescue of those in need.
You don't always make the best use of your considerable talents, choosing instead to do what pleases you in the moment -- even when there are better choices to be made. In fact, you live for the moment and encourage others to do the same, with you or without you.
Also born on this date are: Jenny McCarthy, TV personality; Lyle Lovett, singer and musician; Robert Foxworth, actor; Stephen Crane, author.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been working hard to reach a certain personal goal, but today it may actually seem much farther away than it did even yesterday.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must work harder to be completely understood, whether it be in writing or through spoken interaction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're relying a bit too much on technological assistance to see you through. What happens if someone pulls the plug?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is no time to seek any kind of revenge. Instead, be willing to forgive and to talk about how to avoid similar situations in the future.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself in something of a bind, but a friend or loved one may appear at the last minute to save the day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to keep your feelings bottled up. Express yourself honestly, but carefully. Be sure you have an appropriate audience.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be asked to do something no one else wants to do, and with good reason. You can do it if you suppress your fears.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will have to be prepared for more physical exertion than you had perhaps planned on, but it should be worth it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Don't make any assumptions about what someone else knows or doesn't know. Be direct, honest and thorough in your dealings.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be required to tell someone in charge how things are going. Don't try to gloss over anything negative.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must stick to your schedule despite the fact that others are demanding a little more from you than they had at first.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Carelessness can bring you perilously close to a ledge you do not want to fall off of, but this dangerous precipice can be avoided, surely.
