Born today, you not only feel things very deeply yourself, but you are also able to slip under the skin of another and feel what he or she is feeling as well. This kind of empathy is very rare, indeed, but it is so much a part of your makeup that you are quite unable to turn it off when you would like to. To say you take things personally is an understatement in the extreme! You are a student of human nature, and you will always study closely the actions of others to determine not only what they hope to gain from what they are doing, but also the emotional roots of the behavior. You don't like knowing things on the surface only; you want to know the inner workings of everything -- especially the people around you.
You are often inspired by the successes of others, and while you know you can't very well walk in the shoes of everyone you meet, you do enjoy trying new things through the perspective of others whenever you have the chance. There are times, however, when it would be better to try something original than to do only what others have done.
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, politician; Alistair Cooke, author and television host; Edwin Hubble, astronomer; Ming-Na Wen, actress; Joel McHale, actor and comedian.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be aware of the damage being done by someone whose thoughtlessness is inexplicable -- until that damage affects you directly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is the time for you to do some extra research so that you know what you need to know in time to put that knowledge to good use!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be at loggerheads with someone who sees things very differently from you. Genuine emotions yield a genuine answer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are searching for something that you feel must be in plain sight, but someone close to you disagrees with that notion.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What appears to be an accident may prove, before the day is out, to be the result of someone's intentional behavior.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Once you are on the case, those who are trying to hide the truth will have little chance of prevailing in their deception.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you don't know can indeed hurt you, but you may learn what you need to know by rereading recent correspondence.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're in a position of authority, whether you know it or not. There are some who will come to you for more than you usually provide.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your explanation of certain events may not be entirely in sync with the official version, but the difference is not your doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have several good reasons for thinking that things will turn out differently from what all signs seem to point to right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're going to have a lot to sort through as you try to make a decision that mustn't go against the wishes of a special someone.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're on the verge of something very big, but you may be nervous about taking those last few steps in the right direction. Why?
