Born today, you must do your best, at all times, to maintain control of your emotions -- for when they get the best of you, the results can be quite frightening, and even have long-term consequences that are quite difficult to reverse. The trick, of course, is to maintain a rational attitude. The more something seems to require the engagement of feeling more than thought, the more you must use your head to counterbalance the effects of your natural, and almost unavoidable, emotional response.
Your perceptions, when at their most keen, are virtually unmatched; you can see things as they are and deal with them directly -- so long as you are being thoughtful about what lies ahead. You must always try to stay in control!
Also born on this date are: Shere Hite, author and researcher; Ann Rutherford, actress; Marie Antoinette, French queen; k.d. lang, singer; Stefanie Powers, actress; Burt Lancaster, actor; Daniel Boone, frontiersman; Ray Walston, actor.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A little home improvement can go a long way toward satisfying your need for having things "just so." Do what you want to do -- and enjoy it!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be spooked today by something going on in your house -- or your work environment -- that you cannot explain. Don't overreact, however!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The way you do a certain thing is not in sync with the expectations of those who are nominally "in charge." You may be required to adjust.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can show someone how things are supposed to be done today -- but in the process you may discover that you don't know all you think you do!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A memory of a time when everything was in sync and running smoothly will inspire you to achieve something quite unexpected today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Yes, that secret desire is likely to surface once again today. As always, you must keep it under wraps -- unless you've already been found out!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- In order to give yourself the best chance of success you must be willing to make an early start and work long after others have knocked off.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do several things today that you've had to avoid in the past. Your ability to see things for what they really are smooths the way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The first thing you do in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day -- like it or not. You can influence things in a positive fashion.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be puzzled about someone's whereabouts -- until you remember that he or she shared the day's plans with you. Send your blessing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble making someone follow the rules today, but you were better off taking a subtle approach. Don't raise your voice!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can count on getting the rest you need very soon -- but first you must do all you can to finish some very important projects today.
