Born today, you are never a pretentious individual. Though you are quite talented and capable, you're not the kind to show off needlessly. You will put your talents on display only in situations that require it, when the application of your unique skills is necessary to prevent failure or to ensure progress -- for yourself or for others. Some Taurus natives may be rather self-centered, it is true, but you tend to think of others before yourself. You will go out of your way to ensure that those around you are doing well; if they are not, you will sometimes sacrifice your own contentment to make them happy.
Your personal skills are top-notch. You know how to speak to others one-on-one in a way that makes them feel important and valued -- indeed, to you, all people are! You enjoy meeting new people and traveling to new parts of the world to see how others live and to share stories and customs.
Also born on this date are: Bob Saget, actor and comedian; Craig Ferguson, comedian and television host; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer; Carlos Pena, baseball player; Enya, singer; Bill Paxton, actor; Dennis Hopper, actor and director; Derek Hough, dancer.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to step in and finish a job for someone who is unexpectedly called away. This may not be a temporary thing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Carelessness can cost you much. Those who are looking out for you may be frustrated by your unwillingness to listen to reason.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- That which you thought impossible is likely to happen very easily -- and you'll benefit more than you might expect.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to get moving, but the signs may indicate danger ahead. Proceed cautiously at first, until you can pick up speed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you are expecting or eagerly anticipating may not come to you on time. Still, better late than never, right?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A certain sassiness can serve you well, but take care that you don't let your disappointment in someone reveal itself too strongly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you do must have meaning and import; you don't want to spend your time doing anything trivial or forgettable.
