Born today, you are a romantic and highly sensitive individual, but you don't let those traits define you altogether. You are also quite realistic, able to see things for what they are and avoid sentimentality. You know how to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground even as you give your imagination free rein to explore all manner of possibilities -- and impossibilities, too! You are a creative, hard-working go-getter; when you set your sights on something, you will either make it yours or eventually face defeat knowing that you have done absolutely everything you could in the endeavor. You don't respond to most situations in an ordinary way, yet you do understand what makes other people tick. You are always interested in lending a hand when time and resources allow.
Even though you may not believe or admit it, you have the stunning looks and graceful carriage that will win you admirers almost everywhere you go. Yours may not be a classic beauty, but there is something quite breathtaking about you and about how you make your way in the world.
Also born on this date are: Mila Kunis, actress; Halle Berry, actress; Tim Tebow, football player; Magic Johnson, basketball player; Steve Martin, actor and comedian; Doc Holliday, gunfighter; David Crosby, guitarist and singer; Danielle Steel, author; Marcia Gay Harden, actress; Susan Saint James, actress; Gary Larson, cartoonist; James Horner, composer; Sarah Brightman, singer; Dash Crofts, musician.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Some may accuse you of living in a completely different world. By day's end, however, you will have won broad support from others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't afford to do anything in an uncertain manner. You may be wrong, and you may make mistakes, but you must be brave and confident.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find yourself running short on patience, but take care that you don't lash out at the wrong people for the wrong reasons.
