Born today, you don't have to be big, bold, loud or boisterous to get things done or have a major impact. Indeed, you are more likely to succeed when a situation requires you to be soft-spoken and well-mannered, for that's when the strength of your mind shines through. You are far better at situations that require intellectual strength over physical brawn. You can think your way out of any sort of situation, provided you are given the information you need to put two and two together. You have a certain style that is rather unusual if not unique; you approach things in your own way without trying to do what others have done before you. Originality, for you, is the key to getting almost anything done.
You are something of a visionary. You can imagine much that has never been imagined before, and what is more, you can do much to turn your vision into reality. Your greatest successes in life, in fact, are likely to be the result of turning nothing into something.
Also born on this date are: James Madison, U.S. president; Jerry Lewis, actor and comedian; Erik Estrada, actor; Victor Garber, actor; Mercedes McCambridge, actress; Bernardo Bertolucci, filmmaker; Pat Nixon, U.S. first lady; Chuck Woolery, game show host; Henny Youngman, comedian and musician; Alan Tudyk, 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.
THURSDAY, MARCH 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't take everything as literally as you often do. You can find hidden meaning in almost any message.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Those around you are trying to push you in a direction you do not want to go. Make your objections known, but as politely as possible.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have no evidence that a certain someone is trying to take advantage of you, but you suspect that that's exactly what is happening.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to go back and alter what you have said or written recently, so that no one mistakes your intentions for overt aggression.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be rewarded for something you do purely instinctively. There was, in fact, no premeditation at all -- and look at how it turned out!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time for you to get lost in the past. Focus on the future -- and by no means should you overlook what's going on right now!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may think that you're hearing the same old story from the same old sources, but in fact, there's something new in the wind.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can propel someone toward victory without any hint of an ulterior motive. Indeed, you're simply trying to help -- aren't you?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others may think that you're doing the right thing for the wrong reasons -- or vice versa -- but in fact, your motives are pure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- While going after something that every member of your team certainly wants, you may have to be the one looking after everyone else.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't do everything the way others do, certainly. That's likely to be most advantageous when working behind closed doors.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may push something past the tipping point, quite by accident. The result is likely to be a mess only you can clean up.
