Born today, you are a force to be reckoned with, there is no question about it. Indeed, wherever you go or whatever you do, you are likely to be recognized as the kind of person to influence others in some palpable, even permanent way -- but whether for good or for ill is up to you. This question of "good or ill," in fact, may well prove to be the central conflict of your entire life: Will you follow a path of good, or a path of ill -- a path that brings you into contact with others to effect change that improves their community, or causes some sort of harm? There is no telling which it will be until you begin to work toward your desired ends -- and only then, at some point, will your intentions be clear. If for good, you may then be remembered as one of the all-time great humanitarians; if for ill, you may go down in history as infamous, rather than famous.
You may go through a significant period of time in which you play with your identity, altering it, forging it anew, and reinventing yourself perhaps again and again. Ultimately, however, you will come to the conclusion that the "real you" is the most valuable to you -- and then you will strive to be true to yourself in every way from then on.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Any solution you devise today for a problem that is affecting many will have to take into consideration the desires of those around you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Self-assessment will prove quite important to you today -- but be sure that you aren't unconsciously avoiding a certain hidden weakness.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Do you have enough time to get everything done that you need to do before someone else dictates your actions? You must maintain a fast pace.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is no time to draw things out; keep them short and sweet, for soon it will be time to move to something else. Don't let yourself be sidetracked.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are eager to be reunited with someone who inspires you and encourages you -- but he or she may not be available just yet. Be patient.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be getting closer than ever before to the conclusion of a particular endeavor -- but is it something you want to see end?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must be ready for some criticism to come your way today after you make a decision that others have been afraid you'd make for some time.
