Born today, you are one of the most powerful individuals born under your sign, and yet there are times when you may not know quite how to control and direct that power to achieve the most desirable ends. You will almost always perform best when you are working closely with someone who knows you well and understands both your nature and your capabilities. This person is also able to direct your energies so you can maximize productivity and minimize any negative byproducts or your otherwise rather uncontrollable energies. Such a person is likely to be a friend for life and an invaluable collaborator on all manner of projects, whether personal or professional. He or she may well prove to be your best choice for a life partner, and together you can travel far and wide over the long haul.
There are those who may think you are a little out there, and there is something unconventional in your approach to work, play and all things. What someone else does without attracting much attention, you do in a way that puts you in the spotlight.
Also born on this date are: Al Pacino, actor; Renee Zellweger, actress; Jason Lee, actor; Talia Shire, actress; Meadowlark Lemon, basketball player; Oliver Cromwell, English statesman; Edward R. Murrow, newsman.
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 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can call the shots for a while today, but there will come a time when you will want to hand over control to someone with more experience.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must be willing to work with those around you today. Beware of any attempt to take charge without consensus; you can be a steady influence.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may realize today that you've recently interpreted things backward. You'll have time, fortunately, to set everything straight by day's end.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Just because you can do something doesn't mean you will, and getting it done takes more than the mere desire to do so. You must get to work.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An unexpected opportunity comes your way before the day is out. You may not recognize that someone is quite jealous of you right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Agreement comes of knowing what is being spoken of, inside and out. Until that happens, you're not likely to make a lot of progress.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your ability to see both sides of an issue comes in very handy today -- though this doesn't guarantee you'll be on the winning side in the end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can assemble a great team, but you still might find yourself at a disadvantage simply because you joined the contest a little late.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be upset by something you cannot control; a friend gets you going in the right direction and restores your positive attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may feel that what is coming your way is unstoppable, but that is hardly true. You must dig, but you'll find what you need deep within.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not know what's going on all around you at every moment, but your instincts are keen, and you'll be able to stop an imminent threat.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may realize your influence is not as strong as you had thought. Much can be done to correct this, and the first step is clear.
