Born today, you are inspirational, innovative and always willing to try something new, even if you aren’t certain that it will win you the results that you are after. The fact is that as long as you are learning, you are happy with the progress of things. You know how to use the knowledge that you acquire in new and interesting ways; you may use math in art, or language in sport, or spirituality in cooking. There are few barriers in life as far as you are concerned -- and you are known for breaking down what few you do recognize. Anyone who follows you must be prepared to go to some unusual places -- literally and figuratively.
You are fond of your heritage and will use history to pave the way into the future. You enjoy interaction with all manner of individuals, but you are likely to get the most out of long and “heavy” conversations with one or two friends with whom you have the most in common.
Also born on this date are: “Weird Al” Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, TV talk-show host; Ang Lee, filmmaker.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don’t want anyone to cramp your style today, so be sure to make it known just what you will put up with and what you won’t.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’ll have the opportunity to share a dream with someone who may actually be able to help you make it come true -- given enough time, of course.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’ll be able to enjoy even the most routine of endeavors today. There’s something about your attitude that invites others into your orbit.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Tracking another’s movements today need not be seen as anything sinister. You simply want to know whether he or she is near or far.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A wrong turn results in more than a delay today. You’ll have something very big to report when you get home. Some may not believe your story.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can share a new capability with someone who has been doubtful about your potential in the past. He or she becomes a new convert!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It’s time to surround yourself only with those who will support you in all that you think, say and do. You want no criticism!
