Born today, you are likely to experience dramatic mood swings throughout your lifetime. Though they may never actually get in the way of your personal growth or professional progress, they will surely demand attention now and then and be something you must deal with on a continual basis. Only by ignoring them are you going to allow them to control you. By addressing them, learning about them and understanding them, you will learn to control them and sometimes even use them to your advantage. It is safe to say that few born under your sign will enjoy the highs you enjoy in life -- though few, too, will have to suffer the lows that come along with them.
You have a tremendous work ethic, and your word is your bond; you will do what you say you will do -- period. You are not one to be swayed by circumstances or by the opposing opinions of others. In this way, you are truly honorable, even old-fashioned. You can be relied upon at all times to do what you have signed on to do.
Also born on this date are: Kobe Bryant, basketball player; River Phoenix, actor; Shelley Long, actress; Rick Springfield, singer and actor; Keith Moon, musician; Barbara Eden, actress; Mark Russell, musician and political satirist; Vera Miles, actress; Gene Kelly, actor, dancer, director and choreographer.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want a conflict to come down to "he said, she said." There is a better way to lead this situation to a satisfactory conclusion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's time to yield the playing field to someone else who is performing better than you right now. Soon you'll be able to mount a comeback.
