Born today, you are a strong, insightful individual who knows how to dig deep and deliver the goods when called upon to do so. You are hardworking and always there for those in need. You are no saint, however; you can be quite stubborn, unwilling to take "no" for an answer. You can become quite enamored with the sound of your voice -- and even when you have something valuable to say! You are always taking things apart in order to put them back together again and come to a greater understanding of their form and function. You can find fun in those routine activities that others avoid -- provided, of course, that you are surrounded with the right people.
Your private life is your business; you are not one to intentionally put anything about your personal life on display. There are those who may make it their business to uncover details about your life, and because of this you will have to protect yourself and your loved ones from snoopers and interlopers.
Also born on this date are: Susan Boyle, singer; Debbie Reynolds, actress; Rachel Maddow, TV news show host; Sergei Rachmaninoff, pianist and composer; Ali MacGraw, actress; Gordon Jump, actor; Toshiro Mifune, actor.
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.
MONDAY, APRIL 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can win over your critics today with a single action that has sweeping ramifications. Things can be different from now on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Focus on money matters, but don't let yourself become bogged down by figures that are difficult to reconcile. Get the big picture first.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things are likely to start very quickly all around you today; are you ready to take part? You may have to wait until you are fully prepared.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You want to be treated with respect, surely -- but that means you're going to have to treat others with that same respect -- and you know you can!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have to lighten your load somewhat today, but you don't know what to leave behind. Discuss this with a friend; he or she has good advice.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You find yourself more than halfway through a difficult project -- and you are able, therefore, to take some time to assess your progress.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can score points with a family member who has been unusually critical of you recently. The pressure is off for a while as a result.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You and a friend may disagree about a minor issue, but your faith in a single overriding issue remains strong. You can avoid a fight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will want to do something extra for a friend or loved one who comes to you with a piece of bad news. It's not all that bad, really.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Time spent with a loved one is never time ill-spent. Together, you both know how to up the ante in a way that can be quite enjoyable.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must not break with tradition today; doing what is expected of you because it's what people have always done will prove essential.
