Born today, you have been endowed with a clear head, a keen eye and the ability to make the most out of a situation or circumstances that are still in the evolutionary phase or have only just become apparent to you or someone else. You are a strategist; you know how to position yourself to get the best possible results from something -- even if it's not an area in which you were intentionally involved. Indeed, many times you are most successful when you have to wing it; relying on your experience and instincts to see you through is likely to become quite a successful strategy for you in and of itself. You are flexible, mobile, clever and always able to maneuver yourself to better your chances of success. You rarely if ever find yourself behind the eight-ball!
Your personal life may have to take a backseat to your professional development, especially when you are young and determined to chart a course that gets results and allows you to make a name for yourself. Only somewhat later in life will it occur to you to strive for domestic bliss as well as professional success!
Also born on this date are: Tara Reid, actress; Parker Posey, actress; Leif Garrett, actor and singer; Mary Hart, TV personality; Bonnie Raitt, singer and musician; Morley Safer, newsman; Margaret Mitchell, novelist.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An authority figure is no longer in the picture, and you'll finally realize that something quite important is entirely up to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The way you look at what is coming next inspires those behind you to follow in your footsteps -- even though you've done nothing to emulate yet!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- How you express yourself will prove quite important all day long; you want to be neither too formal, nor too cavalier.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are further away from someone who really matters to you than you had ever anticipated. You can solve the problem in two easy steps.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The resolution to a tricky domestic problem lies not with a third party, but with you and a loved one together. It's time to cooperate!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself trekking a tortuous path in order to get something into your possession that doesn't really matter much.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The professional arena proves less encouraging than usual today, but what you get from the domestic situation more than makes up for it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your moods may keep you from making the right decisions today, especially if you let them swing from one extreme to the next.
