HOROSCOPE

As a Scorpio born on November 7th, your shy, artistic and determined nature define your personality. While others love to be center of attention, the limelight makes you uncomfortable. As shyness meets mystery, you rather carry out your work in private, working with great determination to meet your goals. You have a great appreciation for art and although you may have developed your own artistic abilities, you rarely expose your talents. You keep parts of yourself hidden, even from those that would swear to know everything about you.
