Born today, you focus on the basics and trust that, when you are ready, your talents will allow you to make the embellishments you need to do things in a way that is unique to you. You never mind taking the time you need to learn how to do something or how to do it better. You're perfectly willing to open a book and read up on a given topic in order to better yourself -- either personally or professionally. There may be times when you are not in a position to take advantage of a given opportunity because you are in "student mode," but this only means that if and when that opportunity comes around again, you will be more able than anyone to make the most of it. Indeed, timing is everything to you, and readiness is all!
You enjoy making money, but you value doing what is important to you far more than filling your wallet. Given the choice between happiness and riches, you will take happiness every time -- though you may also be able to have both if you prepare yourself for that lucky break that may come your way.
Also born on this date are: Terrence Howard, actor; Shemp Howard, actor; Lawrence Welk, bandleader; Rupert Murdoch, media mogul; Bobby McFerrin, singer; Sam Donaldson, journalist; Peter Berg, actor and filmmaker; Thora Birch, actress; Lisa Loeb, singer-songwriter.

SUNDAY, MARCH 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be able to maintain a constant pace throughout this busy day, but overall you should continue to meet expectations at work.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Objectivity is the key to maintaining your equilibrium. Once you start taking things personally, all bets are off.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You only have to make one very small change in your schedule to reap very big rewards -- and make yourself available to tend to another's needs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Rain or shine, you'll want to do what you've said you'll do. Don't let your reputation be threatened by disappointing a fan.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have the chance to prove something to yourself, but the opportunity isn't likely to present itself until late in the day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can be in the right place at the right time on more than one occasion. Others marvel at your flexibility and maneuverability.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Not everything is going to make sense to you immediately, but if you take the time to study trends, you'll reach an important conclusion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- All things begin fairly, and it will be up to you to make sure that they play out that way. Let no one have undue advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Even modest gains are worth celebrating, as they are not likely to come to you easily. A rival acknowledges your special talents.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll exert a calming influence on those who are overreacting to the unexpected -- unless you allow your own perspective to become blurred.
