Born today, you are one of the most honest, insightful and expressive individuals born under your sign. You are always looking for ways to illuminate and explain the important issues of the day to those who otherwise would be in the dark, and you know how to attract an audience -- and keep it entertained and informed. You are highly charismatic, yet there are times when you prefer to deprive others of your company -- usually when you are feeling somehow overwhelmed by those aspects of daily life that require a more practical, disciplined approach than you are wont to have.
You are keenly interested in the things that interest other people, and you will no doubt explore all manner of things -- from power to knowledge to daredevil behavior to love -- but you may never fully understand those who are driven, seemingly inexplicably, to do certain things.
Also born on this date are: Alicia Keys, singer; Patrick Willis, football player; Robert Burns, poet; Virginia Woolf, writer; Dean Jones, actor; Tobe Hooper, director; Edwin Newman, TV newsman; Etta James, singer.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Hard work yields the results you are after today, but you may have to walk the fine line between what is acceptable and what is not.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Keep your head in the game today or you're likely to make the kind of mistake that costs you dearly and is hard to live down!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your records indicate something that happened some time ago may have to be revisited soon. Today you can devote to preparation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you do today may surprise those who know you best, for they are thinking along familiar lines -- but you're trying something new!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can avoid almost all accidents today simply by keeping your head up, your eyes and ears open, and your mind receptive to all possibilities.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll try something today that you may be tempted to explore further when all is said and done -- but that opportunity may not come immediately.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your routine may be affected today by someone's faulty thinking or dangerous decision-making. This threat needn't last long.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're eager to make progress and show your critics that they don't really know who you are or what you can do. Trust your instincts.
