Born today, you are never afraid of learning about things the hard way, and you value experience and hands-on training far more than any book learning. Though you may well be highly educated, the fact is that you benefit far more from the kind of education you can get out in the real world; you can -- and likely do -- do very well in school, but that's because you are one of those who, when you choose to do something, will never give it anything less than your very best.
If you like doing a thing, you will certainly commit to it fully; if you don't, you may do it well -- but it's never something that becomes a real part of you.
Also born on this date are: Ryan Howard, baseball player; Kerri Strug, Olympic gymnast; Jodie Foster, actress; Meg Ryan, actress; Calvin Klein, designer; Ted Turner, TV mogul; Larry King, talk show host; James Garfield, U.S. president.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been looking at a certain issue from the wrong angle of late. Today, a simple adjustment can yield much more valuable information.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be in a position to give someone precisely what he or she desires today -- but is that really the right thing to do? Consider carefully.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A question of right and wrong refuses to yield the answer you seek today. A Pisces native works in the shadows and exerts a certain influence.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know how to make it very easy for someone to do his or her job, but that may not be fair to others. Step back; let come what comes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The more you fret, the more a certain issue is likely to impact you today and in the days to come. Remain calm, and address it in a logical fashion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may begin to worry about a friend or loved one who simply doesn't understand what is expected. You may have to take the reins today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel it tomorrow, but today you can take on an extra burden so as to lighten the load for someone. This will reap certain rewards.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can avoid quite a calamity today simply by saying what is on your mind -- and you will find yourself carrying a lighter load as a result.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's time for you to step in and stop someone from doing something that could well be hazardous. You'll be thanked in an unexpected way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone knows just how to light a fire under you today to get you to do a certain thing with greater celerity than usual; you'll be grateful.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to avoid moving from place to place today without really registering where you've been or where you're going. Pay attention!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your interest in someone's progress isn't entirely selfless, as you're likely to be rewarded in turn based on his or her accomplishments.
