Born today, you cannot always be counted on to do what is acceptable or even what is best for you. The truth is that you are rather mischievous and all too willing to turn away from what you know is a better choice to explore that which could possibly bring you greater enjoyment -- but at a much higher cost. Others tend to consider you somewhat selfish, and there is something to the allegation: You do keep yourself firmly in mind, no matter what is going on, so that you get what you want. You're not one to step on others, but neither do you put their needs before yours. You will jump at any chance to prove that you "have what it takes."
You are destined to enjoy a long, lucrative career, but you may not always be in the spotlight. Indeed, some of your greatest achievements are likely to happen behind the scenes, with you playing a supporting role. And truth be told, you often prefer this.
Also born on this date are: Joss Stone, singer; Joel Grey, actor; Jennifer Esposito, actress; Bret Saberhagen, baseball player; Meshach Taylor, actor; Lisa Stansfield, singer; Louise Lasser, actress; Dean Acheson, statesman; Bill Irwin, actor and clown.

THURSDAY, APRIL 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be in need of a change of scenery or venue today; explore some unfamiliar territory and you may find what is just right for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Open and honest discussion is likely to be the only avenue to understanding and agreement today, so why not get it going right away?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Others are waiting for you to make a plan, but you're not sure just how you want to begin. A little more exploration is necessary, perhaps.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not get a second chance today, so be sure you make a strong start the first time. Yes, you're putting all your eggs into one basket.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be wandering between two very different points of interest today. Soon you will have to settle somewhere, so begin weighing pros and cons.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Progress is made in small increments today, but even moving forward very slowly you will be able to assess how far you're actually going.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone you thought you knew very well is likely to surprise you with behavior that is certainly not to be considered "appropriate" today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're trying to gather your forces in preparation for a major campaign, but things don't seem to be aligning the way you had hoped -- yet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be criticized for putting a negative spin on things, when all you're really trying to do is promote a realistic outlook.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A friend is likely to make a choice that you would never make in a million years. Still, you can learn something about what is possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have nothing to fear by talking to someone in charge today. Your ideas are just as valid, if not more so, and they should be heard.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's time to consider an option that you have been saving for -- for just such a day as this. What's changed that makes you think of it now?
