Born today, you are the kind of individual who is led almost entirely by your instincts. This doesn't mean that you are not able to learn a great deal from books or experience, but rather that you apply the knowledge that you do gain by following the currents that run deep within you. You are creative and willing to work with others -- but you are at your best when you are allowed to follow your instincts where they will lead. You are also at your best when you are in charge. Like so many, you want to do things your way; unlike most, you are able to succeed by doing just that. You love doing what you do well.
You are not always as communicative as you might be, and as a result others do not always trust that you are doing what is ideal. You may learn that it is best for you to put your ideas in writing, for then you are sure to say exactly what you mean. You aren't always able to extemporize well -- or accurately.
Also born on this date are: James Franco, actor; Kate Hudson, actress; Ashley Judd, actress; Maria Sharapova, tennis player; Hayden Christensen, actor; Tim Curry, actor; Jayne Mansfield, actress; Dudley Moore, actor and comedian; Dick Sargent, actor; Eliot Ness, federal agent; Al Unser Jr., auto racer; Tony Plana, 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.
FRIDAY, APRIL 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're going to have to face the music today, as someone comes to you and demands that you come clean about something you've tried to hide.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What appears to be on its way in a hurry may actually slow down suddenly and not arrive today, contrary to your expectations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do you have your priorities in order? One side of your personality feels confident that you do, and the other senses something is out of place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will begin the day feeling independent and even aloof, but later on you'll be interested in reconnecting with someone on a deep level.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be far more focused than usual today in order to ensure that you don't neglect something that could adversely affect your future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may act somewhat unhinged for a time today, but there is a method to your madness. By day's end, that much is clear to everyone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The clock is ticking, and yet you're able to remain relaxed and unfazed by the passing of time. How is this possible -- or is it untrue?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your expectations are very high today, and someone is likely to tell you just what is possible and what is not. He or she may be wrong, however.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to receive an order of sorts that you simply cannot obey -- so some negotiation will be required.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you do today is likely to have far-reaching effects on those you love; you can ensure that such effects are positive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to begin the day with a lot of questions, but if you pay close attention you'll be able to answer them all.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be called upon to present a defense of your recent endeavors because someone in charge objects to your methodology.
