Born today, you are a confident individual, but you are not unrealistic about your own abilities, talents or chances in life. You understand that things can be difficult and that circumstances can conspire against you, offering up obstacles that may simply be impenetrable or too massive to surmount. Despite this, however, you are able to move forward according to plans you make for yourself and those around you, and you put things into motion swiftly and ably. You don't let your awareness of life's potential darkness keep you from the light; you prepare for it, but as a rule you prefer to be in the sunlight, looking forward to a bright and positive tomorrow.
You have a great deal of sex appeal, but like so many who are so attractive -- on the inside, the outside or both -- you tend to laugh this off as something that may lose its hold over others at any minute. You prefer to be recognized for what you do rather than what you look like -- which, you realize, is not entirely your doing.
Also born on this date are: Shemar Moore, actor; George Takei, actor; Luther Vandross, singer; Jessica Lange, actress; Adolph Hitler, German dictator; Crispin Glover, actor; Clint Howard, actor; Don Mattingly, baseball player; Harold Lloyd, silent film star; Joan Miro, artist; Nina Foch, actress; Ryan O'Neal, 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.
MONDAY, APRIL 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It shouldn't take you long to complete a certain assignment. After that, you'll be free to experiment throughout much of the day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Before you are able to focus on your own immediate needs, someone else is likely to lay claim to your time and energy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An early start allows you to navigate a tricky patch with a little more care than you would otherwise have the time to muster.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be more in the mood for solitary activities than anything else, but later in the day a rewarding social situation beckons.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Have you been giving others what they ask for lately? It may be that you haven't proved quite as reliable as expected. What's the reason?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel as though your own success is so closely tied to another's that you can't do anything on your own right now. This is partly true.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The gravity of a certain situation is not lost on you. You can do much to steer those most affected in the right direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The fact that others know how to push your buttons should come as no surprise to you; you've virtually trained them to do it!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Just when you think you've developed a healthy routine, you'll be expected to do something quite different -- and possibly quite risky.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can spin things a certain way to increase the chances that you will receive the support you need -- financial and otherwise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A partner may be surprised at how well you are able to take suggestions and criticism. You have an ace up your sleeve!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Give someone an inch, and they'll surely take a mile -- unless, of course, you lay down the law and watch him or her like a hawk!
