Born today, you are lively, inquisitive and instinctive -- and you are also prone to depressions that others find rather mysterious in one otherwise so positive. What is it that drives you to the depths? The truth is that there are two distinct sides to your personality, and you are usually able to maintain a careful equilibrium between them both -- this allows you to remain bright and optimistic. When one attains ascendancy, however, you behave accordingly -- either flying high, which is hardly distinct from your default mood, or brooding intensely. You know how to rise quickly from such emotions, but they always leave you rather shaken.
You are attractive to others, but there are times when it may be difficult to enjoy a relationship that is anything other than skin-deep, for not everyone wants to deal with your inner complexities and your mercurial, unpredictable nature.
Also born on this date are: Kristen Stewart, actress; Hugh Hefner, publisher; Elle Fanning, actress; Dennis Quaid, actor; Jay Baruchel, actor; Paulina Porizkova, actress and model; Cynthia Nixon, actress; Michael Learned, actress; Avery Schreiber, comedian; Paul Robeson, actor and activist.

TUESDAY, APRIL 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're just starting a new journey, but you may feel ill-equipped to face the challenges coming your way. You can remedy that today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are reaching a new level of performance, though few will be aware of it just yet. The time will come when you impress everyone anew!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Trying to do something the easy way will only get you into trouble from which it is hard to extricate yourself today. Take no shortcuts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your interaction with a certain someone brings you closer to the truth you have been looking for, but not as quickly as you would like.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Being first may not be all you had hoped it would be -- but it's not last, certainly. Falling somewhere in the middle is fine with you today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to deal directly with someone whom you have tried to avoid in the past. You'll learn that there's nothing to fear.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can pick up the pace today without worrying about increasing the level of danger that you have to face. Nightfall brings a certain calm.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll have to pull up short at some point today to assess an unexpected development. In little time you'll be moving again.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself playing a very interesting game of "what if" today, as you explore possibilities that you haven't considered before.
