Born today, you are known for your strength, both the physical kind and the emotional/psychological kind -- and the combination of this inner and outer fortitude is likely to give you a distinct advantage over others in many of the situations life unfolds for you -- be they opportunities or challenges. You tend to be somewhat reserved, choosing not to display your emotions to others -- except, of course, a select few whom you invite into your most inner circle.
You tend to be rather obsessive when it comes to facts and figures -- especially if money is concerned. You know how to make money, you know how to spend it and you also know how to save it when you have to -- and when you are in "savings mode" you can be quite frugal, even subjecting yourself to hardship upon occasion.
Also born on this date are: George Washington, first U.S. president; Drew Barrymore, actress; Steve Irwin, naturalist; Julie Walters, actress; Zach Roerig, actor; Julius Erving, basketball player.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be surprised to learn that others are capable of doing what you've always assumed could not be done. Things turn on a dime today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're hoping others support you today, even from afar. As you wait to see how things fall out you can get a lot of important work done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to be in touch with a few good friends today as you stay informed and fair with regard to how you interpret a certain situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is no time for you to break the rules, as you're likely to be made an example of if you go too far and get caught. Play it safe -- for now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You and a partner are coming up with many good ideas, but today may be too soon for you to put them into action. Keep on making plans!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be put on the spot at some point today, but no one is likely to demand of you anything that you cannot deliver. Be ready.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- That which may seem obvious to you is in no way obvious to those on the other side of the issue you're espousing. Get in touch!
