Born today, you are not always as popular in social settings as you might wish, but your popularity generally far exceeds any expectations that others may have of you. This is because there is a distinct difference between your public persona and your private one. In public, you are far more outgoing, positive and entertaining, while the private you can be rather caustic and gloomy at times, bordering on the dour and hypercritical. You are both of these, surely, and you will spend much of your life coming to terms with the fact that not everyone is going to like you -- at least not on a one-on-one basis. Still, you go about your business in a confident manner, and you can certainly achieve much in your lifetime.
You have strong beliefs, and you're not easily swayed when you have made up your mind about something -- especially when you consider it one of the basic notions about life and the world in which you live. You can be quite stubborn, and when you are backed into a corner, you will cling to your way of thinking even if you discover it is largely wrong.
Also born on this date are: Joss Stone, singer; Joel Grey, actor; Jennifer Esposito, actress; Ethel Kennedy, activist and philanthropist; Meshach Taylor, actor; Lisa Stansfield, singer; Louise Lasser, actress; Dean Acheson, politician; Bill Irwin, actor and clown.
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.
TUESDAY, APRIL 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to make certain concessions, but you can still see a personal project through to its conclusion if you're creative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're going to have to get used to working with a certain restriction or limitation. Don't let it get you down, however.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your interactions with certain individuals will pay off for them far more handsomely than for you, but that was wholly expected.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been trying to break free from a certain pattern of questionable behavior for some time. You can make some real headway!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're likely to be introduced to a new way of doing something that, at first, doesn't strike your fancy at all. Give it some time!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may be time once again for you to negotiate an agreement your own way, asking for something others usually never dare to request!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have trouble putting all the pieces together. Slow down and look at things from more than one angle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good day to experiment with a new kind of freedom. You can expect a family member to abide by the rules quite willingly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to deal with an approximation of something that cannot yet be fully realized. That shouldn't slow you down!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Once you get going, you're sure to continue through the day and wind up at your destination on or ahead of schedule. Don't let up!
