Born today, you know how to take advantage of opportunities as they arise, but you may not realize just how important it is that you take care of yourself, get the rest you need, nourish your body correctly and maintain a fit and trim physique. It is not because you wish to be attractive that you must do all these things, but because you are likely to maintain the kind of schedule that requires you to be functioning at peak efficiency at all times. You simply cannot afford to be in poor health! Yes, it takes conscious effort to take care of yourself each and every day, but you will find that feeling good and maintaining a positive outlook are essential to your life and livelihood.
You're not one for social niceties; you cannot abide small talk, and you will go out of your way to avoid the kinds of gatherings that are devised mainly to give others the opportunity to make contact with you and make demands on your time or resources. The fact is, you like to be left alone to do your own thing in your own way.

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.
SUNDAY, APRIL 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's time to stop engaging a rival in a competition that yields minimal personal gain. Focus instead on encouraging cooperation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to start your day earlier than usual to give yourself ample time to prepare for what you know will be a busy few hours.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are willing to do what others are not in order to secure your position with a collaborative group that is about to take shape.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are after something that can only be yours after you sever certain ties with the past and think solely about the future.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others may not know how to deal with a situation that seems quite routine to you -- at least for now. That may soon change, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An uncertain feeling sends you into the day not knowing if it will end the way you were hoping. A friend will point out the obvious to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something you should have noticed but didn't is likely to figure prominently throughout the day. You can handle anything that arises.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are thinking far too much about what is going on behind the scenes -- especially in your own psyche. Dreams can tell you only so much!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are aware of what another is doing and why, but you won't be able to keep the inevitable from happening. Be prepared to deal with it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've received warnings about a coming danger, but rather than prepare to face it, you should work harder to avoid it altogether.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may discover that someone you've trusted for quite some time is not as reliable as you had thought. Changes must be made.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Pay attention to the little things, as they can have a very big impact on you either personally or professionally -- or both!
