Born today, you always insist on making decisions yourself that affect your life, future, and circle of friends and relations. You cannot abide being told what to do -- especially by those who do not know you well! You insist on maintaining your autonomy and independence, and you would rather make an erroneous decision on your own than find success by taking another's advice. You must accept the fact that being responsible for all your own decisions is, indeed, a very heavy responsibility!
When it comes to matters of the heart, you are all over the map -- one who leads and follows, one who is aggressive and passive, one who craves romantic attachment while enjoying the relative safety of solitude. It is a special someone who can be a long-term match for you -- one who is, perhaps, very much like yourself. You require nothing from love so much as understanding.
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.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid knee-jerk reactions today, and let yourself ponder the problems before you. You mustn't let someone's style influence your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A personal sacrifice is designed to pay off for you at a later date, but already you see that the likelihood of that happening is slim.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you accomplish today proves that not all the rules are in place for the right reasons. You can make some significant changes today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may feel as though you are being watched by someone who is trying to get the better of you -- but perhaps he or she simply admires you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be struck by the significance of a certain small development today -- but you may be the only one to see that just now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You receive input from someone that seems to you to be "too little, too late" -- but perhaps you can still use it to your advantage.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be taking on more responsibility than usual very soon, so today you may want to isolate yourself in order to replenish your resources.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to stick to routine today, especially when you are surprised by an unexpected visitor. He or she will just have to wait!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're not in the mood for unnecessary social interaction today. You want to focus on your own personal needs -- so, by all means, do so!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 21) -- You're excited by the possibilities before you, but you're not yet ready to cut certain ties in order to move in that particular direction.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It will not do you any particular good today to go around quoting the rules and regulations. Why not be a little more lax and forgiving?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can speed through some routine work with ease today, leaving yourself time to deal with a problem that may be emerging before your very eyes.
