Born today, you can sometimes be very intense, but for the most part you travel through life with a lighthearted, positive spirit that helps you navigate even the most difficult times with aplomb -- if not impunity. You can lash out against others when you feel that your back is against the wall, but you will do your best to avoid that kind of situation in the first place. Most of the time you are friendly, sociable and a joy to be with -- whether at work or at play. There is something about you that inspires curiosity in others; the people around you are almost always eager to know what makes you tick -- though they are never likely to find out the truth.
Your behavior can be quite disarming at times, particularly when you are to be found acting very casual in the midst of a crisis. Such behavior can be something of a tip-off, however: You know how to remain quite calm in a storm.
Also born on this date are: Andre Agassi, tennis player; Uma Thurman, actress; Michelle Pfeiffer, actress; Daniel Day-Lewis, actor; Kate Mulgrew, actress; Jerry Seinfeld, comedian; Dale Earnhardt, auto racer.

TUESDAY, APRIL 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have good cause to brag, but you'll want to keep your opinions of yourself to yourself -- at least until you are among friends.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can show someone close to you what you're really about today, and in the end you'll be much closer -- but is it too close?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot claim to know what someone else is doing, or why -- but you can combat his or her encroachment with a dedication that is all your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be surprised to learn that someone special has been looking out for you for quite some time. Today you can think things over.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Read between the lines today and you'll learn an important lesson that can hold you in good stead throughout a trying time to come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A new idea comes your way today, and though you may not be able to take credit for it, you can surely make it work well for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Taking things one step at a time may be the sensible thing to do, but you're not feeling all that sensible right now!
