Born today, you tend to stick to yourself, both when you are working and when you're enjoying those rare moments of true leisure time. Yet you also know how to get along well with others, how to cooperate with them, how to communicate effectively with them and how to get things done in tandem with them. All of this is likely to be useful to you in the professional arena -- even, and perhaps especially, your penchant for being by yourself. It is in moments of solitude that you often do your best work -- prep work for things to come, strategizing for what lies ahead, etc. You are a born planner, and you come up with the best plans all on your own.
You are likely to enjoy tremendous longevity, at least professionally -- which means, of course, that you are likely to outlast others in your work. The catch is that you may choose a line of work in which longevity is quite rare -- but still you are likely to accomplish more, over the long haul, than many others.
Also born on this date are: Ann Miller, actress and dancer; Claire Danes, actress; Shannen Doherty, actress; David Letterman, late-night host; David Cassidy, actor and singer; Herbie Hancock, musician; Tom Clancy, author.

SATURDAY, APRIL 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be able to control more than usual today -- but it will take a certain sensitivity that perhaps doesn't come naturally to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be able to get a great deal done today -- and faster than usual. Others will be impressed at your ability to multitask.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will have to put one problem to bed today before you begin addressing another -- and it has been knocking at your door for some time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Environmental influences will be felt throughout the day, though you needn't buckle under them. Keep things in perspective.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in someone else's crosshairs at this time, so be warned. What you do as an evasive action will have a lasting effect.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may not be easy to get certain people to do as you ask today, but once you explain your situation clearly, all should be well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be willing to address certain issues in an up-front, forthright kind of style. Not for you any attempt at duplicity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do more today than others -- but only if you know exactly what your path will be as you are starting out. Leave nothing to chance!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've come a long way, and today you'll be able to look back and appreciate just what that means to you and yours.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your problems are nothing compared to those that someone close to you is trying to navigate. You can lend a helping hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't let a lack of certainty keep you from moving ahead with a new project. You'll gain confidence as the days pass.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're feeling more emotional than you have in the recent past; indeed, over the last few days, things have been bubbling to the surface.
