Born today, you are usually quite a good-humored individual, but you do have your demons, and occasionally they make it difficult for you to function at full capacity and accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. You can be rather self-destructive when you get low, not because you are trying to do yourself harm, but rather because your ability to make the right decisions is compromised -- with the expected result that you sometimes choose to do things that are, in the long run, quite harmful. When you are in full mental and physical health, you are perhaps one of the most productive individuals born under your sign. What is more, you can take pleasure in almost all activities.
You are loyal to friends and family. Once you have pledged yourself to another, you will do everything you can to assist him or her in personal or professional endeavors. Your own needs, however, are never too far from your mind, and you can shift into a self-serving mode at the drop of a hat.
Also born on this date are: Robert Downey Jr., actor; Heath Ledger, actor; Maya Angelou, poet; Anthony Perkins, actor; Muddy Waters, musician; Craig T. Nelson, actor; Nancy McKeon, actor; Christine Lahti, actress; Barry Pepper, actor.

SATURDAY, APRIL 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your day is likely to begin much like anyone else's, but then certain things happen to force you onto a very different path.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have an opportunity to explore what things would be like if you had made a few different decisions leading up to today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're not likely to demonstrate that "other self" that certain close friends know. You want to be a little more conservative.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have the chance to step up to the plate when the game rests in your hands. With a single stroke, you can break things wide open.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been waiting quite a while for what finally happens today. You'll want to be sure that you are fully prepared for what comes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- After a minor disappointment, you may be asking yourself some big questions. Answers come slowly, but they make a difference.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can score a major personal victory, though no one else may be at all aware of what you have done. Satisfaction is yours!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to be buffeted by one thing or another all day long. You can keep up with changing circumstances only up to a point.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can be happy with what transpires even though you may not be in complete control of what you do or what happens to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Because you're willing to do what others are not, you can score a win even though you may have been far behind only yesterday.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can perform up to par, but you may doubt that what you have to offer can stand up to another's contribution. Wait and see.
