HOROSCOPE

Being a Scorpio born on November 6th, you are characterized by a shy and artistic demeanor. You are naturally sensitive and have grown to value artistic expression. You may enjoy music, art or writing, although you rarely expose these talents. You work hard to accomplish your goals, showing great determination in your efforts, but this also may be less-evident to others, as you rather complete your work out of the limelight. You use your reserve to distance yourself from others, which explains why your family and friends are still surprised to learn new things about you. These qualities only add to your mystery!
