Born today, you are not always as well-informed as you might be, but you always carry yourself with such poise and confidence that it often comes as a surprise to others when you show a lack of knowledge in some area. Further, you never let your limited knowledge or experience keep you from exploring a given topic or endeavor; you firmly believe that you will learn what you need to learn as you go, trusting in the venture itself to provide you with all you need to prevail and succeed. You never enter into a new endeavor without believing you will come out on top. Indeed, you are so confident that sometimes that confidence alone can see you through! There are times when others will yield to you simply because of how you present yourself.
Because you're never afraid to explore a new topic or embark on a new endeavor, it's likely you will forge new paths for yourself again and again in life. It's anyone's guess what you might choose to do next, either personally or professionally! You allow yourself to be led by your instincts and unspoken desires.
Also born on this date are: Ice-T, actor and rapper; Vera-Ellen, dancer; John McEnroe, tennis player; Sonny Bono, singer and politician; Levar Burton, actor; Hugh Beaumont, actor; William Katt, actor; James Ingram, singer; Edgar Bergen, ventriloquist; Margaux Hemingway, actress and model; Warren Ellis, writer; Christopher Eccleston, actor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to take someone's side -- as quickly as possible -- when you realize he or she is being wrongly singled out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't turn a blind eye to that which is attracting everyone's attention. You are likely to find it is worth a much closer look.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What comes most naturally to you may not be the best thing to do under current circumstances. Trust a friend to give you other options.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Though you may have been given license to do something others are not allowed to do, be careful not to take things too far.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to see things develop more quickly, and you're wondering if there's something you can do to make that happen. There is!
