Born today, you possess the skills necessary to manage others with tremendous ability, imagination, and success -- and yet at the same time you are often compelled to steer clear of others and work entirely alone. It's not that you do not enjoy being in charge of a group effort; on the contrary, you not only enjoy it, but you are also quite good at it! But that kind of endeavor doesn't really give you the satisfaction that solo work gives you -- and you will always seek out activities that give you that kind of reward. Your professional life is likely to become a kind of amalgam of solo and group work, for you are likely to find that success in one enables you to succeed more remarkably in the other -- and vice versa. As in all things, balance is the key!
Balance is not at all what you bring to romantic situations. You fall in and out of love quickly. When you are in love, you are convinced that "this time it's forever" -- even if it lasts only a few days. You commit to love more dramatically than anyone else born under your sign, and you may leave a trail of broken hearts in your wake.
Also born on this date are: Nikki Sixx, musician; Mo'Nique, actress and comedian; Jermaine Jackson, singer; John Kerry, U.S. senator and secretary of state; Rita Moreno, actress; Brenda Lee, singer; Mos Def, actor, rapper, activist; Donna Mills, actress; Max Born, physicist; Teri Garr, actress; Fiorello La Guardia, New York City mayor.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is the time for you to step up and say what you've long been wanting to say. The audience has assembled, and they are willing to listen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will enjoy more freedom than usual today, but only because someone else has taken a little time off, leaving you to your devices for now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you want to say can be said very simply, and in very few words. That is the best way to handle the situation: clearly and briefly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to push anyone into a decision he or she will regret, nor do you want to act prematurely. Take time to think things through.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may take only the wrong word at the wrong time to turn someone against you -- if only temporarily. Watch what you say!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can't expect to enjoy the fruits of your labors immediately today; be patient, and know that the rewards you deserve are on their way.
