Born today, you love to be in the know, and you will do all you can to keep abreast of developments in your daily life -- to learn about that which is fast approaching on the horizon, and to be aware of who is doing what, with whom, and why. There are those who may call you a busybody, but the truth is that you never seem to intrude on others in any inappropriate way; you simply watch and listen to what is going on around you so that you are never left in the dark. More often than not, what you learn comes in handy for you in some professional way -- and, often, in a way that surprises even you! It is those wonderful surprises, however, that keep you putting your ear to the ground, eager to increase your awareness of the world around you.
Just as you love to learn, you love to teach, and you have a way of communicating with others that empowers and builds confidence. You are never one to treat another as inferior in any way -- even when you know a great deal more. You prefer to deal with others on an equal footing, and you treat everyone as an equal.
Also born on this date are: Ella Fitzgerald, singer; Talia Shire, actress; Renee Zellweger, actress; Paul Mazursky, filmmaker and writer; Oliver Cromwell, English leader; Al Pacino, actor; Meadowlark Lemon, basketball player.
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.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be able to shake the lasting effects of something that happened quite some time ago. A friend can help you lighten up some.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A primary relationship is undergoing a rather dramatic change. You have what it takes to lead others out of trouble. Give a little more.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be reminded of something you had let go of only recently -- and today is the day to reclaim it in no uncertain terms.
