Born today, you have a great deal of personal charm and charisma. You're almost sure to cultivate close friendships wherever you go, so welcoming is your smile, so compelling is your character and so inclusive your personal tastes and nature. You are rarely the kind to turn your back on something -- or someone -- simply because it is new in some way; rather, you accept what you do not know and give it the benefit of the doubt, assuming that you will adjust as necessary to fit it into your life in a productive, satisfying manner. You are always eager to share what is going on in your life with friends and family members.
You do have a dark side, and you can be highly self-critical at times. Fortunately, you do not usually share these aspects of your personality with the world at large, but keep them concealed from everyone except those who know you best, whom you can trust to love you unconditionally.
Also born on this date are: Susan Boyle, singer; Debbie Reynolds, actress; Rachel Maddow, journalist and TV personality; Sergei Rachmaninoff, pianist and composer; Ali MacGraw, actress; Gordon Jump, actor; Toshiro Mifune, 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.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Focus on that which is hardest to see, and you'll have the advantage over the competition when the fog lifts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There's no reason to say something twice when once is clear and concise. It's certainly not your fault when someone doesn't heed you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The ticking of the clock is sure to remind you that you have a few important things to do before the day is out. An expiration date looms.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A good friend is willing and able to give you the advice you need -- especially if you find yourself stuck trying to do too much at once.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An attraction between you and a member of the opposite sex is readily explained, but you are eager to maintain a certain element of mystery.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your ideas are likely to be quite fresh all day long. In fact, certain powerful individuals may fear what you have planned for them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's time to get back in the swing of things after taking a break of sorts. Not everyone is able to resume work the way you are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to withdraw temporarily from a certain favorite activity -- either for health reasons, or to let another have a turn right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Certain technological advances are supposed to make things easier for you, yet today you may encounter more difficulty than you should.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've had plenty of time to assess the assignment you have been offered, and weigh your chances of success. It's time for an answer.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something you and a friend enjoy together regularly is likely to be even more enjoyable to you both on this rather unusual day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Interaction with a Cancer native may be unusually slippery throughout the day. You may have the advantage, but only for a short time.
