Born today, you have something of a chip on your shoulder much of the time, a chip comprised of equal parts confidence that borders on cockiness, and bashfulness that often manifests itself as insecurity or self-doubt. As anyone knows, this particular combination can be quite dangerous to the individual who has to bear the burden of it, but you are able to work with it somehow and turn it into an asset rather than a liability. Fortunately, you are tremendously charming, and that is often what the world responds to rather than any specific presentation of personality or character. You know you can rely on a smile to open doors and smooth your way.
When you find your niche, you are almost certain to enjoy long-lived success, for you are disciplined, professional, and always eager to work and play well with others. You are the kind of professional other professionals often want to be!
Also born on this date are: Matthew McConaughey, actor; Ralph Macchio, actor; Kathy Griffin, comedian; Laura Bush, U.S. first lady; Loretta Swit, actress; Martin Balsam, actor; Art Carney, actor and comedian; Walter Cronkite, journalist; Will Rogers, humorist.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There is light at the end of the tunnel, but that doesn't change the possibility that this may be a very long tunnel!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are being a bit too sensitive, perhaps. To avoid an increase in tension, try taking things in a more objective fashion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are in a position to ask more of those around you than you have in the past. They, for their part, are ready to come through.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have doubts about the role you are being asked to play, but once you get the lay of the land, you can acquit yourself well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be inspired by someone who does things his or her own way in spite of any criticism or objections.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Something you do almost by accident is likely to stir up some trouble, but you can ease others through the most difficult moments.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have a good reason to charge ahead in a manner that seems reckless. In the end, you'll offer a perfectly sound explanation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're waiting for support and guidance from someone who may not be able to give it at this time. Be prepared to go it alone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself in an impossible situation that is actually made better when you turn your back on it for a bit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll come to a greater understanding of how another does what he does and, more importantly, why. Other revelations come to you as well.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find it difficult to deal with a friend who has chosen to be highly reactive -- usually in a negative way.
