Born today, you are a master of turning a disadvantage into an advantage, of salvaging a situation and transforming it as if by magic into something you can not only work with but also triumph in. You are a born winner, and even when you are faced with a no-win situation, you are able to find something about it that proves beneficial, at least to you personally. When things don't add up, you are able to change the rules in some way to see that they do, eventually, make sense -- and you are able to teach others how to do the same thing, if only by example. You are the kind of person who other people pay attention to, simply because you have been endowed with a magnetic personality that attracts all manner of individuals into your orbit. You do not have to interact with someone directly to have an impact on his or her life.
When it comes to your native creativity, you may open yourself up to all manner of criticism -- but that's no reason why you must change. Indeed, the more others criticize you, the more likely you are to continue along the same path to prove that your life is yours and you will live it your way -- successfully.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What happens before you are really up and at it this morning is likely to prove more important than anything that happens later on today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A surprise has you moving more quickly today than you had planned, but you're perfectly capable of maintaining this faster pace.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to get a little rest today before you are thrown into the arena and forced to defend yourself in a more active way than usual.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have business to attend to, surely, but you can also do something that brings you a great deal of pleasure at the same time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to travel some distance today in order to square away a business deal that has been quite a long time in the making.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may seem as though nothing comes easy to you today -- and indeed, you are working harder than usual. This is a temporary phase.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you hear through the grapevine today has you wondering if you should begin keeping secrets -- but that's never the best idea, is it?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You were promised something that did not come to pass -- so now what do you do? This is not a good time to overreact.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll surely want an explanation for behavior that isn't up to par, but take care that you don't come off as overly aggressive.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone is likely to jump the gun today, forcing you into a situation that demands an immediate commitment to something of which you are unsure.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself envying someone who seems to have not a care in the world -- but you'll soon learn that it's just a disguise.
