Born today, you have a great deal of personal charm, magnetism and charisma, and you know how to get other people to watch you and listen to you whenever you like. This doesn't mean, however, that you are absolutely destined for success. On the contrary, the fact that you can attract such attention may well prove to be a liability rather than an advantage, for it can distract you from your primary goals and keep you from tending to business in a direct, down-to-earth fashion. Indeed, if you get caught up in believing your own press, you are likely to find that success is quite elusive. You must always maintain a realistic approach to everything you do, lest you fool yourself into believing you can do anything.
There may come a time in which you must choose between the professional and the personal, but until then you may be able to combine business and pleasure with rare success. Ultimately, however, you will have to decide very carefully what your priorities really are. By the time you finally choose, it may be too late to change your mind.
Also born on this date are: Shemar Moore, actor; George Takei, actor and writer; Andy Serkis, actor; Peter S.

FRIDAY, APRIL 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are getting more and more involved in something that may take control of you if you are not careful. Guard your autonomy, by all means!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to explore all the choices available to you, but stop short of actually deciding just yet. Others have opinions worth considering.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone is likely to arrive to give you a boost when you most need it, but that doesn't mean that he or she will be with you indefinitely.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A new kind of mood will descend upon you, making things tense for those who think they have you all figured out. You're full of surprises.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Are your emotions getting the better of you? Perhaps you have let yourself get too involved in something too soon.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're waiting until you are at the halfway point to look back and assess your progress. You'll get there before the day is out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have only a short amount of time to do what is most important. When the time is up, the opportunity will expire forever.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A key issue continues to plague you. Even while those around you do their best to ignore it, you can't; it must be dealt with!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Are you hoping things will happen in such a way that you can avoid making an irreversible decision? That's not quite how it works!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A loved one unveils his or her heart, and still you are left with the strange feeling that something has not been said. Ask the question!
