Born today, you are able to laugh at almost everyone and everything -- yourself, first and foremost. This is not to suggest that you don't take things seriously; on the contrary, you can be more serious than most when a situation requires it of you -- but you will not sacrifice your humor and the ability to laugh at people and the antics they go through for anything. Laughter, to you, is a great healer -- and a great teacher; you can learn lots from life by laughing at it -- as long as you know why it is funny!
You usually have a quite easygoing manner that takes others by surprise -- and it is something of a mystery to you why other people so often expect you to be running on all cylinders at all times. You would much rather sit back and relax and laugh at the world than move at a high speed through life at all times.
Also born on this date are: Russell Crowe, actor; Jackie Chan, actor and martial artist; Francis Ford Coppola, filmmaker; Walter Winchell, radio and newspaper gossip columnist.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
MONDAY, APRIL 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to spend more time getting someone else to get things done than in focusing on what you have to do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A younger family member demonstrates to you a new way of looking at things, and the benefits are likely to be quite far-reaching.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be distracting yourself from what you should be doing today, but your reasons are sound -- if still only unconscious.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are not likely to be comfortable today unless you know where everyone is and what he or she is doing. You have to be in the know.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't try to force things into a framework of your own design; let things develop organically, and adjust your own tactics accordingly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be facing a few complications that are difficult to sort out; the help you get from an experienced friend is invaluable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't allow a productive discussion devolve into mere name-calling today; it's up to you to see that things remain civil!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Think twice before following another too closely; there are dangers ahead of which you may not be wholly aware at first.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are headed in a new and different direction, and you'll clearly have a different agenda from anyone around you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You needn't try to keep score today; focus on what you have to get done, and not on what anyone else is doing -- or not doing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be patient with those who do not yet understand what it is you are trying to accomplish. There will be time to explain.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must be willing to let certain ideas go unexplored in order to adhere to a very strict schedule established by someone in charge.
