Born today, you are quite adept at assessing the mood of those around you very quickly. You also have a knack for using this information to plot your course in life, and to navigate the difficult situations that so often derail other people. It's not so much that you know what is going to happen, but your ability to observe behavior combined with your appreciation of the odds give you an advantage when it comes to those matters that demand flexibility and a capacity for improvisation. In other words, you are never exactly making things up as you go along, but using what you see and hear around you to inform your decisions.
You can be rather emotional yourself, and you are best to avoid making key decisions when your blood is up, for your ability to think rationally can be impaired at such a time. You may well learn to trust a certain someone to guide you when things get tricky for you -- and he or she is likely to stand by you for life, no matter what happens.
Also born on this date are: Rob Lowe, actor; Kurt Russell, actor; Gary Sinise, actor; Nat King Cole, singer; Patrick Duffy, actor; Billy Corgan, singer and songwriter; Bobby Jones, golfer; John Sebastian, singer and songwriter.

SUNDAY, MARCH 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A controversy arises today when you let slip what you're working on right now. While you have the support of most, your critics are quite vocal.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must share what you know only with those whom it directly concerns; letting the cat out of the bag prematurely can harm chances of success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A denial comes your way today that takes you very much by surprise, and forces you to take a position you wouldn't ordinarily take.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you've recently done is going to resonate with many today; to some it will be an inspiration, and to others it will be a warning.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Issues of friendship and perhaps a certain partnership will come to the surface today. You may find yourself in need of moral support.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What happens today tests your patience -- and your resolve. You may harbor doubts that only a good friend can help you dispel.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- That which you do by yourself today isn't likely to attract much attention -- yet. When it does, you'll be at the center of a maelstrom.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can be easily persuaded to do something today that will benefit others. Don't forget about your needs, however.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can get started with something you've long planned, but take care that you don't try to move too far too quickly all at once today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Others may point the finger at you today, but you know that what has transpired has more to do with them than with you. Make that known!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to realize today that your support of another has been ill-used, and you have been tricked in some way. Speak up quickly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're fighting not only official policy today, but your doubts as well. Perhaps it's best that you can't follow through on plans.
