Born today, you have a way of getting yourself into all manner of situations that, at first, may seem to be over your head but in short order prove to be nothing you cannot handle -- provided, of course, that you keep your wits about you. Letting your emotions get the best of you and leaving critical thought out of the overall equation are the surest ways for you to meet failure head-on. You must always be on the lookout for anything that might strip you of your ability to be clearheaded and rational -- for if you see it ahead of time, you can avoid it.
You have remarkable staying power, and if you keep yourself from believing your own press, you will surely rise to the top of your chosen profession. If you don't, you may only repeat yourself again and again.
Also born on this date are: Lauren Hutton, actress; Daisy Fuentes, actress and TV personality; Danny DeVito, actor and producer; Lorne Michaels, producer; Gordon Lightfoot, singer and songwriter; Martin Scorsese, filmmaker.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Those thoughts bombarding you throughout the day cannot be allowed to dictate your behavior, as they go against your "better angels."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are facing something far more mysterious than expected today, but if you look at it as a puzzle to be solved, you'll have the right mindset.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is no time to guess what someone else is really up to. Pay attention and put yourself where you have the best view of what's going on.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can take full advantage of every moment you have alone with someone today -- and you may soon have an announcement to make.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Without complete instructions, you won't get very far with a new project. Don't be in such a hurry that you can't wait for the information you need.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be feeling on top of the world today and, indeed, you have reason to be confident and able. A rival may soon concede defeat.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Just because you say something is the truth doesn't make it so, as a falsehood is still a falsehood, no matter what you might call it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've got only so much time available to you today to tend to a piece of business that is anything but official. Don't reveal too much.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are eager to see things from any perspective at all, but that will require you to abandon your invulnerable position.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are feeling for someone who has had to go without recently, and today you can do more than merely supply what has been lacking.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You receive news that tempts you to take quick action, but you know better than that. Take the time to work out a winning strategy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to submit to a crash course of sorts in order to gain the knowledge required to get yourself out of a very tricky situation.
