Born today, you are tenacious, consistent and dedicated; you will follow through on anything so long as there is even the smallest chance that you will eventually succeed. It doesn't matter how long something takes to accomplish. You have a great many interests and fascinations -- some may even say obsessions -- that you could find it difficult to stick to one line of work for a long period of time. You want to explore as much as possible of the world and its inhabitants because, ultimately, doing so allows you to answer questions you have about yourself. You believe self-knowledge is the result of a process -- even though the stars bestowed a great deal upon you to begin with.
You are often eager to escape into a world of your own thoughts, and not everyone you know will understand this or react well to your occasional need to do so. It is your responsibility to offer assurances to others. You know you have a good reason for disappearing now and then, and that it is only temporary, but you are going to have to explain this to others time and time again.
Also born on this date are: Vince Gill, singer; David Letterman, late-night TV host; Shannen Doherty, actress; Jennifer Morrison, actress; Tiny Tim, singer and comedian; Claire Danes, actress; David Cassidy, actor and singer; Beverly Cleary, author.

SATURDAY, APRIL 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Certain feelings leave you somewhat bewildered today; they are not unfamiliar in and of themselves, but the timing is strange to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be matched today with someone who complements you in many ways. Together you bring out the best and worst in each other.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may decide that a certain key relationship is actually quite toxic, and you know there is only one thing to do if that is so.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can demonstrate your expertise today. Not everyone is going to give you the attention you desire, but someone important is watching.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One or two very small adjustments transform a mediocre idea into one that can really take off very soon. Be ready to get to work.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The unexpected and the expected work together today to keep you wary and attentive. What happens during the evening confirms a suspicion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Things are not shaping up exactly as you had planned, but if you watch a little longer, you'll see they may turn out much better.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- While caring for someone in need today, you'll have to step away on at least two occasions and tend to your own urgent business.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're far too concerned with words like "should" and "shouldn't" to make a real impact. Free yourself up and opportunities beckon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know how to wake someone up and focus his or her attention on the issues at hand, so why not do so right away? Both will benefit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something is amiss at home, but you may not be sure just what it is. Keep doing what you are doing, and certain signs will soon be clear to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A meeting of the minds spawns a plan that can be put into motion almost immediately, but you must accept a certain responsibility.
