Born today, you are no stranger to adversity, but not because circumstances in life conspire against you to make things difficult on a regular basis. No, it's not that at all! Rather, you are drawn to situations that are difficult and challenging, that require you to dig deep into your physical and emotional reserves in order to find what it takes to deliver the goods. You are often in a race against the clock or under the gun in some other way. You thrive on such situations, and you will surely shine when others are likely to withdraw from such a contest, fearful of being overtaxed and ultimately defeated. To you, losing is not an option, and you enjoy proving it as often as possible.
You have tremendous staying power, and you can stick with an endeavor far longer than most others. It is not just physical and emotional strength that enable you to do this; you also have a rare intellectual capacity and the ability to stick to your principles when they are being directly challenged. Some might call this being stubborn!
Also born on this date are: Ryan Howard, baseball player; Kerri Strug, Olympic gymnast; Jodie Foster, actress; Meg Ryan, actress; Calvin Klein, designer; Ted Turner, TV mogul; Dick Cavett, talk show host; Larry King, talk show host; Indira Gandhi, Indian prime minister; Tommy Dorsey, bandleader; James Garfield, U.S. president.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may fear that things will spiral out of control if they are left untended, but your own involvement may actually cause complications.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in no mood for conflict. The best way to avoid it is to defend others against any kind of unfair treatment or behavior.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're getting closer to someone than you had planned. Be yourself, and you're sure to avoid any immediate danger. He or she understands you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to uncover a mystery of sorts, and only you can solve it -- though it may require that you do something a bit out of character.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be true to yourself, no matter how difficult it may be. Everyone else will forgive you, but you may not if you betray yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're after something that has long been sought after by others -- but you're much closer than they are. Reach out and get it!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may fear the inevitable, but the inevitable will surely be advantageous to you -- immediately and in the days to come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- An old issue resurfaces, forcing you to confront someone who has not evolved with the times. The question is, have you?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to become involved in a situation that someone else is trying to control, resulting in a temporary conflict of interest.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keeping things simple will not be as easy as you might suppose. Your best bet is to let matters evolve as organically as possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The attention you get may distract you from what you are trying to accomplish. A little privacy is hugely important.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been holding that grudge for a long time, when other parties have been willing to let go of such resentments. It's your turn.
