Born today, you go about your business in a calm, secure, confident manner, and you are most often immune from the kinds of emotional ups and downs that so often threaten other people with similar interests and comparable creativity. That you are creative there is no doubt; from your earliest years you are compelled to express yourself in some artistic fashion. While you may never be a groundbreaker, you must surely follow your own instincts down a path of creative expression and artistic productivity. Indeed, you will find a way to channel your deepest interests and beliefs into your life's work, and in this way, you can become an ideally well-rounded, self-fulfilled individual.
While you may boast a rare and impressive pedigree, the fact is that you must always strive to do things on your own, without leaning too heavily on endowments from those who have gone before. You want to chart your own course and become your own person, don't you?
Also born on this date are: Christina Applegate, actress; Amy Grant, singer; Carry Nation, temperance activist; John F. Kennedy Jr., publisher; Joe DiMaggio, baseball player; Ricardo Montalban, actor; John Larroquette, actor; Karl F. Benz, automaker.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can do something to defy the expectations of your closest competitors. This proves that you have several tricks up your sleeve.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to find yourself behind the eight ball, so be sure to maneuver in a way that gives you the advantage.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Execution is the key to success -- once your plans have been finalized, of course. Do nothing before everything is in place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not likely to get more than one chance at a certain endeavor, but if you play your cards right, you can improve your odds.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't let another's erroneous decision discourage you. Keep your eyes on the prize, and do what you can to maintain momentum.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can parlay one small success into two or three. Ultimately, they may add up to a major personal triumph.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to ask a few questions that are, at the outset, uncomfortable. In the end, discussion puts everyone at ease.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're after something that not everyone has. It may actually be within reach -- or very close.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your preference will be to do certain things in a uniquely unorthodox way -- and it is your way, no matter how anyone looks at it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself moving in an unusual direction before the day is out. It's not by accident, but the reason may come as a surprise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you do must be done with the approval of someone who wields the proper authority. Nothing else will do, surely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not have to go far to reach your destination -- but the journey, however short, may be fraught with peril you cannot anticipate.
