Born today, you are a combination of a highly social animal and one who, on occasion, likes nothing more than your own company -- and this is a seeming contradiction that is going to have a great influence over you and the choices you make in life, from your earliest years to your last days. You are quick to make friends, but you do not always let even your friends know everything about you, so covetous are you of your own privacy and sense of self; it is almost as if you believe that you are giving up a part of yourself when you let others know everything about you. You are good company in both good times and bad; you know how to interact with all different types of people.
When you do prefer to be alone, it is either because you are feeling the pressure of some deep-seated creative urge, or because you have plunged headlong into the kind of depression that is unique to you. In the one case you can be quite productive, and in the other, you cannot be relied upon to produce much of anything -- but the depression, at least, does not usually last long.
Also born on this date are: Queen Elizabeth II of England; Charlotte Bronte, author; Andie MacDowell, actress and model; Elaine May, actress and comedian; Anthony Quinn, actor; Charles Grodin, actor; John Muir, naturalist; Iggy Pop, musician.
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 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone else may be claiming to know that which you, in fact, know beyond a shadow of a doubt. It may be time to speak up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You won't find it easy making up your mind today, as the choices that are presented to you are all likely to prove attractive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The reasons you have for doing a certain thing are yours and yours alone. Don't be too quick to change your outlook when faced with hardship.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you are doing may seem to invite others to behave in ways that do not sit well with you, but in fact they are acting independently.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know how to practice what you preach, and today is a very good day to do just that. You're expected to be in the right place at the right time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day to treat another with the very same respect with which you wish to be treated. Fair for one is fair for all.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A decision you only recently made may not be sitting well with you; it's not too late to change it -- provided you have loyal support.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must be willing to reveal everything today when the time is right -- and you'll know when that time comes without a shadow of a doubt.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're in need of a little more security today; feeling safe, indeed, will enable you to branch out in a new and exciting way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Mind your manners today! How you behave is likely to prove even more important than what you say, what you accomplish, or where you go.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone is claiming to know more about you than is even possible. There is something going on that requires some close scrutiny.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be working as efficiently as possible, but almost everything you do is likely to attract the right kind of attention.
