Born today, you are quick to spot an opportunity when it arises, and it is very likely that you will be prepared to do what you must at the outset to make the very best of it. You believe that readiness is the key to success, and you are constantly engaged in all manner of preparation -- mental and physical -- always making sure that you are well-equipped with the tools you may need to get the job done, whatever that job may be. You are quite adept at investigating circumstances and devising the best possible plan in response to those circumstances. While you put a great deal of pressure on yourself to be ready for anything, you handle that pressure with grace and style, and you almost always behave in ways that inspire confidence and admiration.
In your private moments, you are not always as confident as you appear to be in public. You do have your demons, and you can sometimes sink into a kind of depression from which it is difficult to emerge -- but emerge you will, when you have something new and exciting for which to plan.
Also born on this date are: Toni Collette, actress; Lyle Lovett, singer and musician; Robert Foxworth, actor; Stephen Crane, author; Sophie B. Hawkins, singer; Anthony Kiedis, singer; Marcia Wallace, actress.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Timing is everything. Don't let anyone bump you off center at any time, or you may have to go back to the drawing board.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to put yourself at risk in order to do a good turn for another and keep him or her out of danger.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can force an issue, or you can let it develop organically. Either way, you must be ready for someone else's unpredictable reaction.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot force anyone to work in a manner that satisfies your every whim -- nor can you satisfy every one of his or hers!
