Born today, you are no stranger to difficulties or adversity. You can achieve much in life simply through patience, tenacity, hard work and a refusal to be beaten by circumstances. You are determined to climb to the top, no matter how low you may have been when you started out -- and that may be quite low, indeed. Still, once you begin your steady ascent, nothing is likely to hold you back. If anyone tries to stand in your way, you will fight tooth and nail to maintain your autonomy and dominance. Though you do not initially choose to engage others in any kind of combat, you will surely do so as a last resort when you deem it necessary.
You have a keen eye and a cool head for solving problems, and you can solve them very quickly when they are placed before you. Others are sure to follow in your footsteps, and it is likely that you will take some of these people under your wing as partners in work and in life.
Also born on this date are: Malcolm X, civil rights leader; Andre the Giant, wrestler and actor; Grace Jones, singer and actress; Pete Townshend, musician; Joey Ramone, singer; Peter Mayhew, actor; Ho Chi Minh, Vietnamese politician; Nora Ephron, filmmaker; James Fox, actor.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have every reason to think that things will go your way -- unless, of course, you've overlooked a key detail. Check twice!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to review your plan carefully to make sure that there are no holes in your logic. Someone may make an ultimatum.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have the chance to revisit a past glory, but take care that you're not so spellbound by nostalgia that you cannot move forward.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Things are changing on the homefront, and you must take the lead when firm decisions have to be made. Today, you discover an opportunity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to hang on and trust that someone else can do the driving. It's no time to be uncertain about where you are going.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to get to know someone in a new way, as circumstances favor greater camaraderie. You don't have to reveal everything!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The day's progress may not go according to plan, but the actual surprises should be few -- if any. You do seem to know what's going on.
