Born today, you can be fiercely independent. You must always take care that when the urge to be separate and aloof comes upon you, you inform those around you that what you are about to do is in no way personal, but merely a result of your own tendencies, needs and character. This isn't likely to fly with everyone, but it will with most. You will rely on the understanding of those around you more often than others born under your sign. When you are in the mood for socializing, you do so with gusto. Indeed, you can be the life of the party. You can also turn a social affair into an important opportunity for professional development, for you are quick to spot hidden opportunities.
You are able to think clearly even when the going gets particularly tough. This is something that holds you in good stead, particularly because you prefer so often to do things on your own, including assessing difficulties and solving problems. You are never selfish, however; you are always willing to share what you know with others.
Also born on this date are: Reese Witherspoon, actress; William Shatner, actor; James Patterson, author; Andrew Lloyd Webber, composer; Ross Martin, actor; George Benson, musician; Chico Marx, actor and comedian; Stephen Sondheim, composer and songwriter; Bob Costas, sportscaster; Elvis Stojko, figure skater; Marcel Marceau, mime; Karl Malden, actor; Matthew Modine, actor; Lena Olin, actress; Werner Klemperer, actor.
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.
SUNDAY, MARCH 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're at the beginning of a new phase marked by excitement and perhaps just a bit of doubt. Much that is new has you questioning your ability.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Yes, you have what it takes to do what is asked of you, but you're not about to do it just because you're asked. Desire plays a role.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Just because an assignment is not in your sweet spot doesn't mean that you cannot do it -- and do it well, in fact.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Bureaucracy rears its ugly head and slows you down as you try to cut through red tape that you did not expect to encounter.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to cut back where you can; by economizing today, you will ensure that you have at your disposal the tools you need tomorrow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can extend your reach, but you must always make sure your feet are planted solidly on the ground, no matter what you try to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Trust those in your inner circle to tell you what you really need to hear -- even if some of it may push buttons and rub you the wrong way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can and will change your mind more than once today, but perhaps in such subtle ways that no one else really notices.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Don't let yourself be pushed out of your comfort zone by someone who merely wishes to show you up. You'll want to stand your ground.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can use today's changes to your advantage even though you may not have seen them coming.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your ability to stop on a dime will surely come in handy. Keep the pace swift until visible dangers require you to slow down.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be criticized for what you are doing, but not for the way you are doing it. Your methods are widely admired.
