Born today, you don't always pursue your heart's desire with all the dedication and resolve that it deserves -- but the reason, likely, is that you are too busy thinking about supplying the needs of others before satisfying your own. Yes, your generosity is one of your greatest gifts -- but it is also a liability where your own success is concerned, for there are times when dedication to your own plans and your own ambitions is paramount. You are fully able to reach your goals and achieve big things -- but there are times in which you must allow yourself to be a little selfish in order to do so.
You are able to wrap your brain around the most complex issues and lofty notions; indeed, you can be quite satisfied by simply sitting and thinking about a problem for a while. Ultimately, however, you must swing into action -- for yourself or for others -- in order for your brainpower to pay off.
Also born on this date are: Lynn Redgrave, actress; Carole Bayer Sager, singer and songwriter; Cyd Charisse, dancer and actress; Oliver Wendell Holmes, U.S. Supreme Court justice; Alan Hale Jr., actor.

SATURDAY, MARCH 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a way of imparting information that allows others to "own" their situations. You, too, must own yours!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take responsibility for what you have done -- and only what you have done. Now is no time for you to be a hero and cover for someone else.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can bring someone into the modern age today by introducing him or her to the kinds of tools everyone uses these days!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you want to do may not be in the best interest of those whom you currently serve. The time will come for you to be more self-serving.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must not take for granted that which is necessary to your well-being and which is made possible by someone in the shadows.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A mystery is not likely to be solved outright today, but you can gather a few important clues and begin to understand its significance.
LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct. 22) -- It may be up to you today to keep the peace -- at home, especially, where someone is getting a little too big for his britches!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have the chance to celebrate a recent winning move today -- but take care that a rival doesn't catch you off guard with a new assault.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be able to get as far as you had planned, or make progress as swiftly as you had hoped, but you can still make measurable gains.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone you know well is waiting for you to make even a minor error so he or she can rush in and save the day. This may not be a bad thing!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll have to make one or two difficult choices today, but when all is said and done, you may be "sitting pretty" as you had hoped.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day to remember what others have done in your position -- though you needn't copy them outright, to be sure.
