Born today, you have a habit of reaching your goals and doing all the things that you say you're going to do -- and all without blowing your own horn or making a fuss of any kind. You go about your business in a purposeful fashion, surprising supporters and critics alike with progress that seems to happen behind the scenes -- though you are never one to do anything undercover or in a clandestine manner! You are upfront and open about everything in your life, even your faults, flaws and mistakes. For this reason, you are, in many ways, above reproach. Even those who disagree with you on various issues cannot help but like and respect you, thanks mainly to your open, honest, uncompromising nature.
You can be forceful and persuasive, but you rarely feel the need to influence others in such an aggressive fashion. Rather, you let your words and actions serve as examples to those around you -- and if they choose to follow in your footsteps, so be it. You will always do what you must do, regardless of the behavior of others.
Also born on this date are: Alyssa Milano, actress; Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Cicely Tyson, actress; Tyson Beckford, model; Tim Reid, actor; Edith Piaf, singer; Robert Urich, actor; Sir Ralph Richardson, actor; Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader; Brandon Sanderson, author.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- How you brand the day's events will make a difference, as those around you are more interested in appearances than substance -- for now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you do with your money says a great deal about your character. Make no mistake: People are watching how you spend!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll benefit from an insider's look at what is going on around you. What is the margin for error? Study the numbers.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to dig into your past in order to come up with the answers to questions that others are asking. What you find may surprise you!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are feeling something new about someone who's been in your life for a long while. He or she is ready to assume a more central position.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's time to brainstorm, perhaps, but take care you don't set rules for yourself that are different from the ones others have to follow.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Family matters are coming to the fore. You should be able to anticipate what will happen and prepare yourself accordingly.
