Born today, you tend to be a gentle and encouraging soul, the kind to give good advice when it is asked for and lasting support when it is appropriate. You are ruled by a notion of kindness and tolerance, and there is no one on whom you will turn your back merely because of how he or she looks, speaks, dresses or behaves. You will always give a person the benefit of the doubt, and you will leave it to him or her to demonstrate unworthiness. You are fair in word and deed -- or at least you try to be.
You may be susceptible now and then to physical ills and emotional upsets -- and the two are often very closely linked. It is rare for you to fall ill without there being an emotional component to contribute to your sickness, and you rarely slip into an emotional rut without some sort of physical cause. Your mind and body -- and your heart -- are almost always in very careful balance.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Vivaldi, composer; Knute Rockne, athlete; Paula Prentiss, actress; John Garfield, actor; Steven Weber, actor; Patricia Heaton, actress; Catherine O'Hara, actress; Dav Pilkey, cartoonist and author.

THURSDAY, MARCH 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can do much to promote a sense of camaraderie among those who have tried to work together with little success. Things turn around quickly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may require more guidance today than usual, but you know just where to go to get it. Remember that time is short; you mustn't dawdle!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You find yourself embroiled in a situation that challenges you physically and mentally. Stamina is the issue today. Can you stick it out?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been acting as though you have the controlling voice when, in fact, someone else is in charge. This can't go on forever!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You derive great strength today from that which means something only to you. You're entering a phase that invites a great deal of reflection.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to make arrangements that will allow you to feel more involved. Today, certain plans are favored and others are not.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll receive news from a friend that may have you changing course as quickly as possible today. You must get back to where you started!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to profit from someone's mistakes today, but instead of gloating, you may want to step in and make any corrections you can.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Caution is advised during morning hours. Later in the day, you can pick up the pace and see what comes of saying "yes" more often.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your emotions may be quite near the surface today. The complexity of a certain issue has you at odds with yourself, at least for a while.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are nearing a crossroads that will demand of you more than just the usual passing acknowledgement. Take a close look at yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may think you're the only one who must bear a certain burden, but the events of the day make it clear that you are just one of many.
