Born today, you aren't always willing to do the things you know you should do to advance your agenda and promote your cause. You tend to be resistant to anything that seems so clear-cut, and you are often more willing to pursue those things that are questionable, in doubt or challenging in some way. You don't really like to know how things will turn out. At the same time, you are no fool, and you recognize that doing the right thing at the right time can result in tremendous gains. Additionally, who are you to turn your back on the very things that can help you make your way in the world?
You have tremendous passions, and you are far more likely to spend your time feeling than thinking -- though you do recognize that there are few things quite as strong as a well-built, well-expressed argument. You admire those who can change other people's minds, and often you don't care what the issue is as long as it inspires interaction.
Also born on this date are: Emma Watson, actress; Leonardo da Vinci, artist; Seth Rogen, actor; Emma Thompson, actress and screenwriter; Roy Clark, TV host and musician; Elizabeth Montgomery, actress.
TUESDAY, APRIL 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to reorganize things on the fly today in order to maximize potential and ensure you end the day in an advantageous position.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The quality control you usually apply to a certain project may not be up to par today. Be sure any errors made can be corrected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot be held responsible for what happens when you're not on the job -- or can you? Be sure you know what your liability is.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Watching those around you gives you a great deal of information that you can apply to a current project. You'll be glad you took extra time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself playing a role that is very different from how you originally conceived it. You have more control than anticipated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which was vague becomes very clear today, and that which was uncertain is something that you can count on by day's end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something very important starts very slowly today, but once the pace begins to increase there's little you can do to slow things down.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can show off your natural style today, but take care that you don't neglect something that requires you to get your hands dirty.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will want to be sure -- or as sure as possible -- that the approach you are taking today is the right one. Imagine what could happen.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- How you seem to others may surprise you today -- if, indeed, anyone chooses to share with you. Are you being as realistic as possible?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will have to navigate some emotional currents today that threaten to take you far from where you really want to go. Batten down the hatches.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What goes on beneath the surface today will have a major impact on what you do, though you may not be aware of it at first. Pay attention.
