Born today, it's not all that important for you to be noticed first, but you are determined to be remembered above all others for your contributions, both personal and professional, to the world around you. You are destined to achieve great things if you don't let the idea of competition become too much for you -- and there are times, to be sure, when you will want to quit the rat race, get off the grid and forget about life for a while.
You're not likely to support others as much as you support yourself, but that is simply because when young you will have taught yourself to be quite self-sufficient -- and that often means self-absorbed. This doesn't have to last a lifetime, however, and once you reach out to others to lend a helping hand, you'll feel yourself developing quickly in all the right ways.
Also born on this date are: Oksana Baiul, Olympic figure skater; Lisa Bonet, actress; Martha Plimpton, actress; Burgess Meredith, actor; Missi Pyle, actress; Kimberly J. Brown, actress; Marg Helgenberger, actress.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may want to consider a change that will affect how things work at home. Efficiency is only one concern; how things look is another.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have the opportunity to participate in something new today with a friend who has lately been more fearless than you. Hang on tight!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you do on your own is likely to mean more to you than anything else you accomplish today. You need to prove something to yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take stock of all that you have going for you today; you'll realize you've been holding it all together very well lately.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone close to you asks for something you've not been willing to grant in the past -- but today is different. You're likely to say "yes"!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The way things were before had you wondering if you were on the right track, but the things that happen today answer that question very clearly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Progress is made in a most unusual way today, and when all is said and done, you'll want to take the credit for what surprises others most.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to do more than simply "visit" today; you'll want to stay for a while and see if you can't get something more for your trouble.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Optics are far more important today than you might suppose, and you can do a great deal to help another with the way things look.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Knowing what you want is only the first step in acquiring it. Today, you must be willing to learn about hanging on to it once it's yours!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- There's no going back today, so you must be willing to commit wholeheartedly to what you have before you. There's really no wrong choice.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can grab a little excitement today where you least expect to find it -- but take care that you don't get more than you bargained for!
