Born today, you are likely to go about your business with a minimum of struggle, for you thrive on nothing so much as a smooth path and a worry-free environment. Though the world around you may be falling apart in this way or that, you will do what you can to keep your own little corner of it running in an efficient, easy fashion. This gives you the greatest chance for success, in fact, for you do not do well when things are noisy, messy or otherwise in any kind of disorder. There may be times when it seems that you are uncaring, but really, you are just choosing your battles very carefully.
You are a highly energetic individual, but you are never to be found simply spinning your wheels or working off steam. You always want to spend your time and energy doing things that matter somehow. You keep track of time very carefully, though you may not ever wear a watch of any kind.
Also born on this date are: John Schneider, actor; Robin Wright, actress; Felix Hernandez, baseball player; Patricia Arquette, actress; Sonja Henie, Olympic skater and actress; Mary Pickford, actress; Betty Ford, U.S. first lady; John Havlicek, basketball player; Catfish Hunter, baseball player.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You want things to be better than they are now -- as soon as tomorrow, perhaps. Efforts may take you away from home for a time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can make your mark by setting down in writing something you have perhaps only been thinking about of late. A daring step is called for.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're almost sure to be welcomed warmly into a new circle of associates, all of whom may soon be considered friends.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will have very little to do to get the ball rolling. However, once it's on its way, you'll have to guide its path rather carefully.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Wherever you go, whatever you do, there's likely to be someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you follow the rules all day long.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll have an opportunity to put on a show of sorts. While this may not be entirely instinctive, you can do it with style.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The ticking of the clock will remind you that you have only so much time to accomplish a rather lofty goal. Get moving!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Ease and relaxation will make the difference between your work and that of a close competitor.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can watch things develop from a safe distance and face the consequences, or you can shape events by being directly involved. Choose!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've been hearing reports that have you wondering if you're really prepared to face what's coming. Don't let yourself be rattled.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It may take additional money to do what you have set out to do. A working vacation of sorts could help.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A collaboration is likely to begin that can bring you a good deal of attention and notoriety. Keep the competition to a minimum.
