Born today, you are one of the most agile individuals born under your sign -- physically, mentally and emotionally. You very likely have tremendous physical prowess, but this is matched by your ability to wrap your mind around the most convoluted problems and to avoid emotional hardship simply by keeping your feelings nimble and light. This is not to say that you do not tire, that you cannot be stumped by those smarter than you, or that you do not suffer from bouts of depression. You surely do all of these -- and more! -- but they are not really a part of what defines you, of what makes you you. Apart from being always on the go, you are also quite generous, and you enjoy sharing experiences with friends.
Others enjoy being with you -- and you usually enjoy the social scene. Every now and then, however, you recognize that it is time to withdraw a bit, to secrete yourself away into a private sanctuary and avoid being with others. Whether this is a matter of self-protection or reinvention is for you to say, but you do find it useful.
Also born on this date are: Jackie Chan, actor, martial artist and stuntman; Russell Crowe, actor; Ravi Shankar, musician; James Garner, actor; Billie Holiday, singer; Francis Ford Coppola, filmmaker; Wayne Rogers, actor; Jerry Brown, politician; David Frost, television personality; John Oates, songwriter and musician; William Wordsworth, poet; Walter Winchell, journalist; Joel Robuchon, chef.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Seek, and ye shall find, but what you uncover may be strikingly different from what you were actually expecting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just because you've committed to the long haul doesn't mean you won't sometimes entertain alternatives.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The quality of your work is likely to be questioned by those who don't have any basis on which to judge. Don't take it personally!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not take to something very quickly, but once you've gotten the hang of it, you are likely to enjoy yourself immensely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The attraction you feel for someone else is very much like a gravitational pull that you cannot resist -- so why try? See where it leads.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're seriously thinking about separating yourself from those who have, until recently, been a part of your every endeavor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A change is in the works, and you can do much to prepare for what comes to you as a result. Anticipation plays a major role all day long.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are thinking that others may not have it together at this time. In fact, your own attitude may be in need of some adjustment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Laughter can do a great deal for you, and some of the benefits will carry over into activities that you do not usually enjoy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself shrinking from a vision of the future that you had no part in creating. A few adjustments can have you on board.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The time has come for you to make a key decision that will affect you and those around you. More important, you must act on it!
