Born today, you are determined to be one of the best in your chosen field -- if not the best! You are ambitious and always willing to tackle a problem head-on as you climb the ladder of success. When you have a new idea, you are more than willing to give it a try, even before you are fully prepared to do so. The likelihood is great that you will fail far more than you succeed -- at least when you are starting out -- simply because you will try so many ideas, so few of which will prove truly viable. When you do come up with something that is a surefire success, you are likely to surge to the forefront -- and as the saying goes, the world will likely beat a path to your door!
You are not compelled to know everything about yourself. You believe that one can be too absorbed with self-knowledge and not concerned enough with a knowledge of the world and how it works.
Also born on this date are: Jet Li, actor; Carol Burnett, actress and comedian; Bobby Rydell, singer; Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor; Duane Eddy, guitarist; I.M. Pei, architect; Joan Chen, actress; Ma Rainey, singer; Hack Wilson, baseball player.
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 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's not likely to be business as usual today -- but you can keep things under control and prevent a kind of chaos from descending on you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can make a dream come true today, provided you know just how to fit into a situation that is not of your making. Take a chance!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do you really know what others are thinking about you? Perhaps you've been wrong all this time, and you actually have the support you need.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know what is expected of you today, but going that route may not please you in a way that lasts or really matters. Do what you want to do!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A new responsibility falls to you today, and before you know it, you're going to have to sink or swim. There's really only once choice!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can thrill someone else and give yourself what you need and want at the same time. This may be the beginning of a new, lasting arrangement.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You aren't supposed to see everything that goes on today; what happens behind the scenes is meant to be hidden from view at least for now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A chance encounter tells you that things are not the way they seem to be; you can make a change today that sends you off in a new direction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to focus today if you want to make sense of things that happened over the past few days. Consider the obvious.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're feeling a little lost at this time, but a friend gets you back on the right track. A re-start has you looking forward to many things.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone close to you is likely to take action that goes against much that you believe in, but it needn't result in any kind of rift.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you do must be in line with what you say, or you're sure to be thought of as a hypocrite by someone whose opinion really matters.
