Born today, you may enjoy a meteoric rise from humble beginnings and end your days at the top of your chosen profession -- but this doesn't mean you'll always be happy, surely. Professional success is not a guarantee of personal contentment, and you may seek that left and right when the path forward is sure to bring you accolades and career advancement. There may be times in your life when you mistake one for the other and choose to follow a path of hard work in place of the kinds of things you really need.
You are who you are, no questions asked. You refuse to change just because someone thinks you would be better off being someone else instead -- and besides, how is being someone other than yourself supposed to bring you happiness? Indeed, despite your love of role-playing, it's the very thing that can keep you from true contentment.
Also born on this date are: Elton John, singer and musician; Sarah Jessica Parker, actress and producer; Aretha Franklin, singer; Danica Patrick, auto racer; Marcia Cross, actress; Gloria Steinem, journalist and publisher.
THURSDAY, MARCH 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're growing tired of having others tell you they have things all figured out. Today, you are likely to come up with some answers of your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must keep yourself keenly aware of what is going on all around you today, lest you be the unwitting cause of something you can't control.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not know where you're going today, but the journey itself provides you with much food for thought. Others may want to take part.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to decipher all the messages that come your way today, but only one really matters right now -- and it will be clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll witness the start of something big today, very likely -- and if you play your cards right, you can become an active participant, too.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The difference between fact and fiction may not be as clear to others today as it is to you. You'll be able to call someone on a bold deception.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't let yourself be misunderstood today simply because what you do is not fully appreciated by those around you. You can explain yourself!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Once or twice today you'll be faced with an "either/or" situation that requires you to make a quick decision. Experience serves you well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you do today is likely to be based almost entirely on a personal system of checks and balances to which only you subscribe.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Something you've never heard of in your life may exert a strong influence over you today. You must learn all you can about it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have reason to remember an old friend today and to appreciate all over again his or her earnest attempts to transform you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day to stand up and be counted after doing much to help another earn recognition and material gains. You'll get your share.
