Born today, you have been endowed with such tremendous self-awareness that it is virtually impossible for you to journey into territory for which you are unsuited -- unless, of course, it has been a conscious decision to do so. You believe in examining your circumstances every day, assessing your progress in an honest and unadorned fashion. In both your professional and personal endeavors, you are so very maneuverable that you seem to avoid any kind of obstacle as you strive to reach your goals. You never mind taking a step back, if it means you can subsequently take two steps forward.
You're likely to attract a great deal of attention in your lifetime, particularly through your work, which may bring you into the limelight. You recognize that to be all that you can be you must be willing to sacrifice something in order to gain something else.
Also born on this date are: Vince Gill, singer; David Letterman, late-night TV host; Shannen Doherty, actress; Jennifer Morrison, actress; Tiny Tim, singer and comedian; Claire Danes, actress; David Cassidy, actor and singer; Beverly Cleary, author; Andy Garcia, actor; Tom Clancy, novelist; Herbie Hancock, musician; Ed O'Neill, actor; Henry Clay, statesman; Ann Miller, actress.
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.
FRIDAY, APRIL 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to put the fate of a pet project into someone else's hands for the time being. He or she knows what is at stake for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be willing to commit fully to someone else's proposal, so it is likely best that you avoid any kind of involvement altogether.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not be able to trust a good friend to keep a certain piece of news under wraps, so why risk everything by sharing it? Wait a few days.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know just what is at stake today, and just what you have to do to ensure that you and your team come out on top. Take decisive action.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are likely to be asked to do something that is squarely in your "sweet spot" today. Take care, however, that you don't display overconfidence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A certain doubt lingers today, even after you make a firm decision about something that doesn't affect you directly at all. Dig deeper.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to be asked to commit to something you do not believe in -- at least not yet. No good can come of pretending; respond truthfully.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You and a certain someone may not be able to set aside the rivalry, but you can approach things in a far more civil manner.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may need -- and want -- to adjust your attitude today. It's important that you first come to an understanding of key circumstances.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you do from afar can affect those at home far more deeply than anything you could offer up close. Keep up the good work.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Others are interested to hear your ideas at this time, but you are worried that they may not understand your true motives. Take that chance!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Hard work, combined with a measure of good luck, enable you to achieve something that a rival has only dreamed of. Your work isn't done yet!
