Born today, you know how to maintain a healthy view of reality even as you indulge in the most outrageous flights of fancy. This combination of realism and idealism may seem, to some, impossible to maintain in a healthy way, but you are surely able to do it, as you prove again and again. You take things very seriously, but at the same time you are able to cut loose and enjoy yourself fully. Those who know you best know that you can be a great deal of fun, indeed!
You are not one to tie yourself down to anything that doesn't feed your mind, your soul or your pocketbook. You have to gain something from any kind of commitment -- whether personal or professional. This is something that mystifies many around you: How can you be both so profit-oriented and so carefree?

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.
MONDAY, APRIL 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't believe that anything is a sure bet. Indeed, much of what you do at this time amounts to a crapshoot of sorts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You want everything to line up a certain way so that you can tend to business in a tidy order. Expect the opposite!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You keep expecting someone to show up who can add a little spark to your day -- but when he or she comes, it's something else you will get!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is no time to make demands on another that you wouldn't have made on yourself. Fair is fair, no matter what the situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be put in the awkward position of having to protect yourself and a rival at the same time; now is no time to take sides.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're on the fence about a certain issue that has you thinking one thing and then another in rapid succession. Try to clear your head.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now that you're nearing the end of a certain phase, you'll be able to see just how you can to get out of an unexpectedly sticky situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The approach of something you've been long ignoring will change everything for you today -- at least for the time being. Don't resist.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not have much time to complete a certain task, but if you manage it, you'll have a lot of time to indulge yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've been working hard, and it may seem that you have nothing to look forward to but more work. Perceptions can be misleading!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble ignoring certain distractions -- especially since some of them have been intentionally planted by a rival.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll have to get the lay of the land very quickly if you find yourself in unfamiliar territory. The powers that be won't wait!
