Born today, you have tremendous confidence born of self-awareness, and you are always treading a path that leads to a place you want to go -- personally, professionally or both. You are flexible, however, and you do everything in such a manner that you are able to shift gears quickly, change your mind about central issues and alter your course with a minimum of fuss. In short, you never lock yourself into something that cannot be changed -- even when it comes to love and romance.
You have great faith in progress itself, and you will always work to move things from the past through the present into a future marked by innovation and novelty. You can easily become frustrated if you are not permitted to explore what you think might be possible, and you are always compelled to push the limits of propriety and acceptability to arrive at something new that works for you.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Seinfeld, comedian and actor; Michelle Pfeiffer, actress; Dale Earnhardt, auto racer; Uma Thurman, actress; Daniel Day-Lewis, actor; William Randolph Hearst, publisher.

THURSDAY, APRIL 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Trust is a central issue throughout the day. You will surely want to speak your mind when someone gives you the opportunity to do so.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are asked to do something today that is outside your comfort zone, but some clever improvisation allows you to meet the challenge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Tensions are cooled today when you join the fray. You are able to use what you know, as well as your easy approach, to facilitate progress.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to clear all obstacles from that path that lies ahead, but recent experience tells you that you can overcome them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to embrace a necessary evil today in order to avoid something else that could be much worse. A friend arrives just in time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your views clash with those of another -- but that prompts you to examine what you think in a new way. You'll win praise for your objectivity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not know, at the outset, just how you will get a certain task completed on time -- but you are helped by someone unknown to you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you provide to others throughout the day will be quite valuable, but you can't expect everyone to benefit as you might hope.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't neglect your own needs today -- and that means you may have to turn your back on someone else -- at least temporarily.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to make yet another trip in order to address a problem that still has nothing directly to do with you. This is nothing new!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not understand the reasons you have been assigned a certain task, but you can surely perform it well and have a lasting impact.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will have to take steps to ensure that things pan out the way you envision them. A sudden development means flexibility is a must.
