Born today, you thrive on creative activity of all kinds, and you grieve that the world finds it so easy to destroy when, as far as you are concerned, the act of creation itself is what being human is all about. You are driven to become involved in anything and everything that provides you with a creative outlet, whether it be a solitary activity or a team effort -- though, ultimately, you are likely to find yourself "in charge" of large efforts that bank on the combined talents of many, many people working very closely together.
You keep your promises -- period. Your word is your bond, and nothing can possibly compel you to do anything but what you have pledged to do. This wins you not only admiration and praise, but a large number of friends and allies as well -- and even your enemies know they can count on you to be true, loyal and constant.
Also born on this date are: Mark Harmon, actor; Salma Hayek, actress; Keanu Reeves, actor; Terry Bradshaw, football player and commentator; Christa McAuliffe, teacher and astronaut; Jimmy Connors, tennis player; Linda Purl, actress.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can be unusually creative today when it comes to a situation that others see as completely ordinary. You'll get surprising results.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be playing a guessing game with someone who thinks he -- or she -- knows more than you do. In the end, your experience pays off.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be accurate in your accounting of time, money and other resources. You don't want to find yourself running low when you most need them.
