Born today, you are able to maintain the most positive outlook -- no matter what happens to you or to those you love. Your ability to hold out in the face of incredible odds to achieve success is likely to be unmatched by anyone else born under your sign. No stranger to hardship, you maintain a facade that makes others wonder if there's anything you can't deal with. Indeed, you will surely teach yourself to move forward in the face of adversity. It may surprise others to realize that you are full of good ideas, and that you know how to influence others to see that those ideas are implemented -- but not in an overt manner. Rather, you do some of your best work behind the scenes, not in the spotlight!
You truly believe that distance makes the heart grow fonder -- but only because it does for you. You are not the kind to let your feelings diminish simply because the object of your affection is not with you at any given time. On the contrary, you know how to make the best of life's imposed separations, and you continually reach out to maintain lasting connections.
Also born on this date are: Abigail Adams, U.S. first lady; Demi Moore, actress; Barbara Boxer, U.S. senator; Leonardo DiCaprio, actor; Jonathan Winters, comedian; Kurt Vonnegut, author; George S. Patton, U.S. military leader.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are feeling the need for a little more contact than usual today; can you fit someone in, even though you have a lot to get done?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can meet a major challenge today. Focus on that which makes you think twice. Give a friend more attention during evening hours.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You won't impress a new friend by doing something in the same old routine way. You must be more creative and show off your true skills.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You face an obstacle today that requires you to think very carefully before taking any action to remove it. There are hidden dangers.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others are likely to be more receptive than you expect today, so why not try out one of those strange ideas you've been toying with lately?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Though you must do all you can to keep someone else safe, looking over his or her shoulder all the time is not likely to help.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can win a little more respect, and give a timely boost to your reputation, by doing one little thing that no one else is willing to try.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can bet that no one else is going to see things quite the way you do today, and this is sure to give you a very important advantage.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can turn up the heat and put pressure on those who haven't been pulling their weight. Now is not the time to compromise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you are overly aggressive, you risk much that you've been working for, but being too lax will do the same. Moderation is the key.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- If you must repeat yourself today, find new ways of saying the same thing. Try every possible approach if you have to!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's better to be suggestive than direct today, implicit rather than explicit. No one wants to hear too much right now.
