Born today, you have been called a "schemer" by some, an "upstart" by others and a "genius" by still others, and all of these monikers, and more, are well-deserved -- though they say more about those who apply them to you than they do about you. And why is that? The fact is that very few people can match you for your sheer energy, insight, creativity and output -- and that makes them insecure about themselves and defensive when it comes to their relationships with you. You are never insecure or defensive; you are known for your positive outlook and your ability to see the good in almost everyone around you.
When it comes to domesticity, you are something of a puzzle -- for you derive great strength and inspiration from hearth and home, and yet you are often looking for reasons to be elsewhere.
Also born on this date are: William Shakespeare, playwright and poet; Shirley Temple Black, actress and ambassador; George Lopez, comedian; Taio Cruz, singer; Valerie Bertinelli, actress; Lee Majors, actor; Roy Orbison, singer.
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 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your fear of the unknown is holding you back today. You have what it takes to turn in a stellar performance -- if you will only let yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must watch over another today to ensure that he or she maintains some peace of mind -- as you can, even under considerable personal pressure.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Patience is a virtue, surely, but it is also a rare commodity. Today, you must do all you can to promote it at home and at the workplace.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be asked to share your opinions in an "official" setting today -- but now is not the time to rock the boat. You can choose to keep mum.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're headed in an unusual direction today, but that's not what is concerning you most. The real issue is a current lack of connection.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not make it quite as far as you had hoped today, but the progress you do make is likely to win you praise from the powers that be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to watch what others are doing very carefully today, as there are things you can learn, surely, but imitation should be avoided.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The information you seek is either outdated or unavailable today. You must be willing to continue your efforts while in the dark.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You feel a strong pull in a certain direction today -- but that way lies a certain danger to which you're not willing to expose yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As always, appearances can be deceiving -- and today you're almost certain to learn a thing or two about that. A friend sticks up for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What happens today may require some explanation when all is said and done, so you'll want to be sure you understand it fully.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you share with a friend or loved one may prove more valuable to both of you than anticipated. Something telling is in the works.
