Born today, you are not always able to do things entirely your own way, but even when this is so, you can be counted on to maintain your own sense of style -- and you can often get the best results when you follow instructions in a manner that is inimitably your own. Indeed, style and substance, together, are your true metier, and nobody approaches tasks, whether routine or unusual, the way you do -- and still you are able to win the approval of those in charge.
There are times when you may prove somewhat self-destructive -- not intentionally, of course, but because you begin to believe that you can do anything, which of course is untrue. You can do much, surely -- but not everything! It's likely you will have fallen prey to someone who is out to get you by making you believe in the impossible in this way.
Also born on this date are: Mary Martin, actress; Bette Midler, singer, actress, entertainer; Richard Pryor, comedian and actor; Lou Rawls, singer; Woody Allen, actor, writer, director, comedian; Lee Trevino, golfer.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are doing all you can to make some decisions, but today you may discover that you don't really have any to make. You must follow the rules.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ability to see to the heart of a problem will surely serve you well today -- and many will come to you seeking viable solutions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can be much more creative today than you had originally planned, and that will sustain you through one or two difficult moments.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A collaboration takes an odd turn today, but you should be able to get back on track quickly -- especially if you learn from what happens.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be fearing a showdown of sorts -- but when it happens, you'll likely find that you have the advantage. You'll play to win.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself moving slowly in a direction you never anticipated -- and what happens as a result teaches you much about yourself.
