Born today, you are a strong individual in character, will, intellectual capacity and, very likely, physical prowess as well. When you enter a room, people notice -- not just because you are a physical specimen to be appreciated, but because the force of your personality is felt even before you interact directly with others or speak a single word. It is important for you to learn how to control the kind of influence you have over people and their environment; without such control, your personal power can run amok and actually do you more harm than good in the long run. With judiciously exerted control, however, your natural life force can be used as a tremendous tool -- an agent for good that can make the whole world a better place.
Also born on this date are: Chuck Norris, actor and martial artist; Carrie Underwood, singer; Robin Thicke, singer; Harriet Tubman, civil rights activist; Olivia Wilde, actress; Sharon Stone, actress; Prince Edward of Great Britain; Jasmine Guy, actress; Paget Brewster, actress; Jon Hamm, actor; Shannon Tweed, model and actress.
You don't always feel the need to be front and center. Indeed, you sometimes do your best work -- and influence those around you best -- when you play a supporting role and let others take the lead. You are never at risk of being overlooked, however, so get that thought right out of your mind!
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Not everything can be taken at face value, of course, but that which can will certainly give you a solid footing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your instincts tell you one thing while the facts tell you something else. The truth, of course, is likely a combination of the two.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be trying too hard to please others. In the end, what really matters is that you are recognized for your honest intentions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- He or she who criticizes you for something over which you have little or no control will soon be trapped in the same way -- by you, perhaps.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on that which has a clear beginning, middle and end. You don't want to deal in that which is vague, cloudy or uncertain.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have more to look forward to than you had originally thought. Circumstances develop that favor your intentions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's a good day to spend with family members, doing things you have long planned to do, or doing nothing at all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're going to have to put your trust in another in such a way that requires more from you than just patience. This will all work out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be able to start and finish something rather important all at once. Much depends on timing and proper positioning.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Once you find the exact spot, you'll realize that you have power and influence. What does this mean exactly? You have always known!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Do you have something in mind that can be easily comprehended by others, or something that is rather mystifying? Each has its value.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to win praise for something that may have started quite by accident. Still, you know how to ride a wave.
