Born today, you are an imaginative individual, and you crave nothing more than the opportunity to wander over the ground that your mind lays out ahead of you. You are not always concerned with reality and what others think should or should not be done; rather, you prefer to deal with your own thoughts and emotions in a way that keeps your inner being alive and productive. You can become quickly frustrated with yourself and the world around you if you are not given free rein to think and dream and fantasize as you will, regardless of the potential outcome.
If you do harness your imagination and apply it to practical endeavors, you can accomplish much in your lifetime. You are likely to surprise your critics by doing that which is both valuable and memorable. Once you learn to build your castles out of stone and not vapor, the world can be your oyster.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Springer, Cincinnati mayor and TV personality; Peter Gabriel, singer-songwriter; Chuck Yeager, test pilot; Stockard Channing, actress; Peter Tork, guitarist and singer; Kim Novak, actress; Mena Suvari, actress; Oliver Reed, actor; George Segal, actor; Bess Truman, U.S. first lady; Carol Lynley, actress.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to leave something behind in order to lighten your load and move forward at an accelerated pace.
