Born today, you are a keen student of human nature, and one of your very favorite hobbies is the observation of behavior. This doesn't have to take place formally, in a controlled environment; indeed, you enjoy it most when it is in an unrestricted atmosphere, and you are free to observe what you will and come to your conclusions without having to rely on "experts." Indeed, you are likely to become an expert, being the kind of person that others can turn to when they require understanding of the more difficult issues that arise in life. You know what makes people tick, and this surely helps you deal with all manner of people on a daily basis.
You are creative, resourceful, and free from any sort of preconceptions about what is possible and what should be done. You will give anything a try, so long as it seems to point the way to knowledge. You enjoy interacting with people, and you are not the kind to exert any undue influence over them.
Also born on this date are: Victoria Beckham, singer; Jennifer Garner, actress; Sean Bean, actor; Olivia Hussey, actress; Luke Mitchell, actor; Rooney Mara, actress; William Holden, actor; J.P. Morgan, banker and entrepreneur; Nick Hornby, author; Boomer Esiason, football player and commentator; Harry Reasoner, newsman; Thornton Wilder, playwright.
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.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to juggle several key issues today, and nothing is likely to be resolved just yet. Keep those balls in the air!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- How you tell a certain story is far more important today than the actual events you are sharing. It's a matter of style over substance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't want to get involved in anything that you think will be uninspiring or merely routine. Look for that which truly excites you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Be direct and honest in your dealings with someone who holds your immediate future in his or her hands. Don't equivocate!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know right from wrong today, and though it may be difficult to get others to see your point of view, it is important that you do so.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You must do things in the right order today. Don't make the mistake of thinking that your way is always the best way; that way danger lies.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to come up with something creative and effective without much preparation today. Try dusting off a favorite old idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to follow a rather winding path today in order to get to a certain destination that looms ahead. It's farther than you think.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may become frustrated today when things become heated and you are shut out of a discussion because of your personal views.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must avoid doing something just for the money. If you're not going to benefit in some other way, it's not for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Others are more interested in what you are doing than you are, perhaps. You can learn something from someone close by.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- That which seems indirect is, in fact, much more direct than you could possibly imagine -- and you'll be dealing with it before day's end.
