Born today, you tend to speak your mind more openly and freely than most born under your sign, and what you gain by doing so is likely to outweigh any hardship you encounter as a result. True, there will always be those who do not understand or appreciate your particular brand of candor, but you must behave in a way that is natural for you, regardless of the reactions you get from others. Though you are sure to attract more than your share of critics, your friends are likely to be so loyal to you that you can prevail even when you are vastly outnumbered.
The fact that you speak from the heart is likely to earn you a great premium where love is concerned -- for who does not like to feel as though they are privy to someone's secrets? What you must guard against, of course, is manipulation; you must never use candor to gain undue advantage over another.
Also born on this date are: Michael Eisner, film executive; Luther Burbank, botanist; Maurice Ravel, composer; Piet Mondriaan, painter.

FRIDAY, MARCH 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The devil is in the details, they say, and you'll know just what they mean as you tackle the little things that make all the difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time to insist on having things your way; compromise is the only way to achieve even just a portion of what you want.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- No news is good news -- at least for a portion of the day. After dark, you'll want to keep your ear to the ground and get all the scoop.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What goes on behind the scenes today is likely to impact you more directly than anything that happens out in the open.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to force the issue today, but if you lay back and let others do the work for you, it can be resolved very much to your liking.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know what is likely to be asked of you today -- but take care you don't jump the gun in any way. Wait until you are asked!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now is the time for you to make peace with someone who may have wronged you long ago. Make an effort to excuse, forgive and forget.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're in the mood for something more mellow than usual today -- though your own instinct for being "in the fray" may conflict with this.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be afforded a rare glimpse today at the inner workings of something that is usually kept very much under wraps.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You and a teammate may have to work from positions that others might consider disadvantageous. Indeed, you may be quite far apart.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're showing signs of being rather worn down by an issue that refuses to be resolved. Perhaps it's time for you to let it go!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be responsible for as much as usual today, as someone else is likely to jump in and take some of the load.
