Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous will, inner fortitude and the ability to see the world in a certain way that allows you to imagine the way things could be even as you deal with the way they are. You are driven to succeed, perhaps because when you were young you encountered obstacles that pointed out certain personal weaknesses that have required a lifetime of commitment to overcome. You love taking on challenges that seem to be long shots. If the odds are against you, you are much more likely to apply yourself fully -- as you will often say, why fight a battle that can win itself?
Also born on this date are: Bo Derek, actress; Veronica Hamel, actress; Joe Biden, U.S. vice president; Dick Smothers, comedian; Richard Dawson, actor and game show host; Estelle Parsons, actress; Robert F. Kennedy, U.S. attorney general and senator; Alistair Cooke, journalist and television host; Edwin Hubble, astronomer.
You may, for a while, be in the shadow of another to whom you look up and who provides you with inspiration, knowledge and experience. Eventually, however, you will have to step into the sun and claim your own place in the world of influence and achievement. You can certainly do so if you base your work on personal belief and ethics.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want things to go your way, but you want to see someone else do well at the same time. Can you have both?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Keep an open mind, and you'll come to an understanding of another's motives more quickly than if you held on to any preconceptions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to seek something that has been hidden for some time. You may be closer than you think to uncovering a valuable indicator.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone who is no longer in your life may suddenly resurface, causing you to question a recent decision and to consider a life change.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you see today may not mesh with the way you have been thinking about things. What is the difference between "is" and "might be"?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Reality may give you cause for reflection, while the product of your own imagination seems far more immediate and real.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What was worked out for you once in the past may not be so easily settled this time. You're going to have to do a great deal on your own.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may sense that someone is trying to take advantage of you, but in reality you are simply putting yourself in a risky position.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are receiving clear instructions, yet they may be quite difficult to decipher. Follow another's lead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Forces combine to influence you against your will, but you have an ace up your sleeve and can avoid being pushed around.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to find yourself involved in something that was not of your making, but only you may know how to resolve it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Observe what is going on today, but do so from a safe distance. You don't want to put yourself or someone you love in danger.
