Born today, you are a study in learning and evolution. You are always developing and growing as a result of your encounters with individuals and situations that were not previously known to you. Indeed, your single greatest skill is one that allows you to absorb and assimilate information almost immediately. This, in turn, allows you to adapt to situations in a way that seems virtually effortless and instantaneous. Of course, that's only the perception; you know better than anyone that it takes continual effort to stay on top of your own development. You must always pay attention to what is going on in your own life and, quite often, in the lives of those around you as well.
You are strong-willed, tenacious and resilient; you know how to put on a brave front when faced with difficult situations. This not only promotes the idea that you have everything under control, but it actually enables you to muster the strength you need to exert that control over your own life. Appearances can, indeed, turn into reality!
Also born on this date are: Scarlett Johansson, actress; Mariel Hemingway, actress; Jamie Lee Curtis, actress; Billie Jean King, tennis player; Robert Vaughn, actor; Rodney Dangerfield, comedian; Benjamin Britten, composer; Hoagy Carmichael, songwriter; Charles de Gaulle, French military leader and president; Abigail Adams, U.S. first lady.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Not everyone will understand or appreciate your sense of humor. You may want to keep the best jokes to yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It only takes once to do something that can be long remembered -- as long as you are in the right place at the right time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may claim to know better than anyone about what is quickly developing, but the fact is that you're caught in a whirlwind.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- While operating according to certain preconceptions, you can do things in a new way that is a direct response to the day's events.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to provide someone with the necessary components of a piece of work he or she has been dealing with for some time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to feel a pressure that is exerted from many sources, but you can remain autonomous if you truly believe in yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- As the day begins, you are sure of yourself and the decisions you are making. Later, you may have reason to doubt -- temporarily.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Cooperation comes naturally to you -- but not to everyone. You'll want to pick your team with care so you can avoid bad apples.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must pay attention to all the little things. Someone who claims to know you well will make an error in judgment that you can fix.
