Born today, you are always willing to take a crack at something that others have been unable to do. Whether you succeed depends, in large part, upon your ability to assess your own performance honestly. You never fool yourself into thinking that you are doing better than you are. You are intense and see any sort of game as a test of your approach to life; you're not one to think that something can merely be "shrugged off."
You can be highly romantic, but this is a side of your personality that you keep hidden mostly, and that you reveal only to that lucky individual who is the object of your immediate affections. When young, you may be something of a heartbreaker; with age and wisdom will come a desire to enjoy a single, long-term relationship.
Also born on this date are: Hank Aaron, baseball player; Bobby Brown, singer; Sara Evans, singer; Michael Sheen, actor; Roger Staubach, football player; Jennifer Jason Leigh, actress; Laura Linney, actress; Barbara Hershey, actress; Christopher Guest, director; Red Buttons, actor; Adlai Stevenson II, statesman; Stephen J.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You feel that you are ready for anything, but is that just overconfidence? Your true potential may be revealed to you in a surprising way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Work behind the scenes and you can get things done more quickly than if you are in the spotlight. The secret is in going largely unnoticed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're after more than recognition, you want to be rewarded for what you do. Don't be impatient; you can have both eventually.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your desire to prove yourself can be overwhelming today and may threaten what you are truly working to gain. Keep things simple.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can impress others with the depth of your knowledge about a highly unusual topic. They will find your enthusiasm remarkable, too!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Forward motion is only possible today if you are willing to face an obstacle that has threatened to hold you for some time. You can do it!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Only a lack of communication will result in the kind of trouble that will slow you down and threaten further progress. Keep talking!
