Born today, you are one of the most forceful individuals born under your sign, the recipient of so many stellar gifts that, when young, it may be difficult for you -- or anyone else charged with your care -- to determine just which course you should follow to maximize your potential and secure your ultimate success. You are the kind of individual to make the rules, not follow them -- but of course that means you will first have to break the rules that you feel don't apply to you, and that will surely result in a good deal of conflict in your early life.
You are volatile, expressive and always more than willing to share your point of view with anyone who will listen. Your passions run swiftly in many currents just beneath the surface, and when they converge, they may reveal themselves as anger or frustration.
Also born on this date are: Jane Austen, author; Billy Gibbons, guitarist; Benjamin Bratt, actor; Benny Andersson, singer; Margaret Mead, anthropologist; Arthur C. Clarke, author; Krysten Ritter, actress; Theo James, actor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've recently made a decision that is only now beginning to reap results, and those are not entirely what you or others expected.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't let someone's troubles get you down today. You can only do so much to help, and when that's been done, you must move on.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's not what you say but how you say it that will make the difference today. Your intended audience is far more emotional than you are!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have a way out of a certain mess, but it's not something you can do today. Patience may be hard to come by but will be necessary.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can be more creative than someone else and come up with a plan that others find almost irresistible. You're entering an important phase.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's not yet time for you to put everything on the line, but you can surely prepare for that very moment on several occasions today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Family matters become somewhat difficult today, but only because someone isn't telling you the whole story. The truth will come out -- soon.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're able to get along today with someone who is dramatically different from yourself, especially where money matters are concerned.
