Born today, you are a contradiction in terms. You are forceful and hard, but you are also quite sensitive -- almost to the point of effeminacy if you are a man. You know how to sort through a problem with remarkable logic and brainpower, yet you trust your instincts implicitly. When that little voice inside your head advises you to do something, you do it, even if it defies the very logic that is so strong in you. You are polite almost to a fault, but when backed into a corner, you abandon your good manners immediately and prove yourself quite a scrapper, able to fight the good fight against all odds and eventually come out on top.
Ultimately, however, you are a sucker for a good cause. When you find one, you will devote yourself to it for all time, and it will invariably be one that many others can subscribe to as well. In this way, you are likely to become quite popular even though you can be quite shy and seek out solitude whenever possible.
Also born on this date are: Casey Kasem, radio personality; Ulysses S. Grant, U.S. president and military leader; Coretta Scott King, civil rights leader; Sheena Easton, singer; Jack Klugman, actor; Sandy Dennis, actress; Anouk Aimee, actress; August Wilson, playwright; Rogers Hornsby, baseball player; Enos Slaughter, baseball player; Patrick Page, 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, APRIL 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you take advantage of an unexpected opportunity, you can rise to the top and be recognized for work that no one can match.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It doesn't take much to make a friend or companion feel good, nor does it take much time. The littlest thing can last a long while.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're more eager to get started than almost anyone else on your team, but you need them behind you to make the most of an opportunity.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are likely the creator of your own nightmarish situation, so why not go back to the drawing board and make the necessary changes?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do much for someone who is in no position to do things for him- or herself. Such generosity will be rewarded, surely.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You want someone close to you to understand what you are going through, but take care! Some things are best left unshared just now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- How you arrange things on the homefront will make a big difference as you try to do more in the time available.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Now is not the time to insist that everything be done a certain way. Indeed, a little experimentation can go quite far.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your reasoning may be faulty, which explains why you cannot yet grasp a situation that has taken control of you recently.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There are several aspects of a current project that require some attention. Where you start can make all the difference.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must procrastinate no longer. Today is the day for you to dive into a certain project to be sure that you can finish it on time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're eager to see what a friend is up to, but you must first complete an assignment that you have waited too long to begin.
