Born today, you are not one to take the world by storm all at once; rather, you will require time and training, and will have to employ a great deal of patience too, as you make your way step by step toward the goals that you have set for yourself. The truth is that there may be times in which you distract yourself with behavior that is not conducive to success, and that in fact may be quite harmful to you and those around you. Still, you can be counted on to set aside such dangerous habits in favor of a life that is upstanding, honorable, admirable and above all satisfying. What is success to you? Like anyone else, you want to be comfortable and contented, but what sets you apart is your interest in accomplishments that are quite rare. You are drawn to projects that are unusual in the extreme.
You have a natural charm that attracts all manner of individuals into your orbit. You enjoy the social scene, and when young you may well overdo it at times -- but as you age and mellow you will find a way to enjoy yourself from a safer distance than before. While you like to have fun, you seem to prefer watching other people have fun even more.
Also born on this date are: Matthew McConaughey, actor; Ralph Macchio, actor; Kathy Griffin, comedian; Laura Bush, U.S. first lady; Loretta Swit, actress; Martin Balsam, actor; Art Carney, actor and comic; Walter Cronkite, newsman; Will Rogers, cowboy humorist.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been looking into the same issue for quite some time, but to little effect. Today, why not try coming at it from a different angle?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- That which concerns you only peripherally is likely to become more important as the day wears on. The way you interact with others is key.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be trying to hide something that is already common knowledge. Why not fess up, and move on to something more important?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're keeping things going for personal reasons, but perhaps it's time to recognize the need for at least a temporary change.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which you've avoided in the past may prove to be quite good for you today, so long as you can see your way clear to trying it at least once.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The lessons you learned yesterday can certainly be applied today, and you are eager to see where all this self-improvement will lead!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone is going to want to know just whose side you're on today, but perhaps you don't know just yet. It's something you should decide, surely!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A promise made quite some time ago is finally kept today -- and you'll be released from any further obligation. Where do you go from here?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can catch up with a friend who has spent a good deal of time far from your usual haunts. He or she has a few stories to tell!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your ability to combine many efforts into a single comprehensive endeavor will come in very handy today -- for you and those working with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is no time to play guessing games; you must be willing to look directly at the facts, and able to come up with a concrete conclusion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A quickening of the pace needn't leave you in the dust; you are perfectly able to keep up -- especially as other things are going your way.
