Born today, you are more able to make sense out of life's mysteries and inconsistencies than most others -- even those born under your sign. You are careful to observe what goes on around you, what is involved, who is most influential and how it all affects you. This allows you to come up with the best course of action under the prevailing circumstances. Your secret is simply that you refuse to let things upset you -- for that only leads to confusion and unclear thinking, which can prove detrimental in virtually all situations. You keep your eye on the ball at all times, and you are therefore able to catch it whenever it comes your way.
You're a real go-getter and a true starter, one who is able to dream up something new and transform it into reality for the first time. Others are sure to follow in your footsteps, so while you must never expect to be the only one to do this or that, you can enjoy being the first again and again.
Also born on this date are: John Schneider, actor; Robin Wright, actress; Felix Hernandez, baseball player; Patricia Arquette, actress; Sonja Henie, Olympic skater and actress; Mary Pickford, actress; Betty Ford, U.S. first lady; John Havlicek, basketball player; Catfish Hunter, baseball player.

SATURDAY, APRIL 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're going to want to review several recent decisions -- and the actions you took as a result -- to decide what is best for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Doing the normal thing right now will not suffice. You'll have to take matters further and do something that few others really expect.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A recent arrangement risks coming apart if you aren't able to contain the emotions of someone who feels wronged in some way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Starting is the hard part, but once you do, you'll find that momentum carries you through the day with few bumps or distractions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let anyone tell you you're on the wrong track. Proceed confidently, undaunted, and discover what you will in the course of your journey.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be expecting too much from someone close to you; he or she isn't willing to make the sacrifice that you seem to be encouraging.
