HOROSCOPE

As a Scorpio born on November 1st, you are known for your ambition, passion and outer reserve. You have a passion that defines your inner-self. Your passion materializes as an ambition for success that leaves you unsatisfied being anything but the best. While your friends and family admire your drive, they may be most impressed with your ability to remain calm and collected in any situation. Your outer self is so reserved that others struggle to understand your true intentions at times.
