HOROSCOPE

As a Scorpio born on November 5th, your artistic talents are matched with a shy and determined personality. You have a gift for the arts, although you may not expose these talents often. You are determined in your efforts and will always do the work necessary to reach your goals. While talented, you have no desire for the limelight and would much rather carry out your work in private, behind the scenes, which explains why others find you so mysterious. Your need for secrecy also carries over to your personal life, as there are many parts of yourself that you hide, even from your closest friends. While your family and friends appreciate your many positive qualities, they are frustrated in knowing that you keep things from them.
