Born today, you much prefer working with others -- even if only one-on-one -- than striving to accomplish things on your own, for you are too quick to succumb to the kinds of self-doubts and crises of confidence from which the company of others keeps you safe more often than not. You do have your demons, and there are times in which you will be able to maintain control over them -- and those are the times in which progress and accomplishment are likely to be quite remarkable. When they get the better of you, however, you are quick to sink into a kind of depression or even despondency from which it is very difficult for you to recover without the help of someone who knows you very well.
You learn a great deal on the spot and from your surroundings. Despite the fact that you may not be the least studious in the classic sense, you derive your knowledge in practical, hands-on ways that are, to you, far superior to any other methods. You learn by doing.
Also born on this date are: Heath Ledger, actor; Robert Downey Jr., actor; Christine Lahti, actress; Craig T. Nelson, actor; Anthony Perkins, actor; Maya Angelou, poet.

FRIDAY, APRIL 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may think you want to be left alone today, but the truth is that it will be counterproductive -- at least in the long run.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to talk closely and openly with a friend about what you are facing; he or she, in turn, will share some honest opinions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a friend have come a long way since you first encountered an obstacle to open communication. Don't take a step backward!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Things go in cycles, and today it may seem as if you are starting something all over again -- but in fact it is an entirely new phase.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to break any of the rules today -- but you may not be able to avoid bending them just a little!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can have a little fun doing something that others expect you not to do -- but take care you don't get carried away.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have one or two surprises up your sleeve, and you're merely waiting for the right time to spring them on the unsuspecting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You want very little to do with that which has not been tested by others. You're not into experimentation at this time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be making promises that you cannot keep -- try as you might. It's time to step away from that certain precipice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you need can be gotten for you by someone who knows the ropes a little better than you. Experience counts for much today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Later on you can do what you want, but today you may have to do what you are told -- and only that. There are limits to your freedom.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 20) -- You are feeling vulnerable today, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing -- or a weakness. Embrace what you cannot avoid.
