Born today, you are a strong, strong-willed, stylish and often outspoken individual who, at times, can be rather difficult to argue with because you are able to come at a problem from almost any vantage point, and you understand almost all sides of an issue. This doesn't mean, of course, that you embrace all sides. Hardly! You know what you stand for, and you make no apologies for your beliefs -- even when you are arguing the opposite point of view.
You know how to embrace the joyous moments in life and carry them with you long after they have passed into memory -- and you know how to inspire others to do the same. You are a true leader in this way, the kind others look to as an example, and whom they emulate and follow freely. Even those at the opposite end of the ideological spectrum respect you as one who lives life in the "right" way.
Also born on this date are: Rob Lowe, actor; Kurt Russell, actor; Gary Sinise, actor; Nat King Cole, singer; Patrick Duffy, actor; Bobby Jones, golfer; John Sebastian, singer and songwriter.
THURSDAY, MARCH 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't want what you cannot have -- and that's convenient, to be sure. Unfortunately, something you want is also out of reach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Weighing your needs against another's is not a good way to determine who should do what -- or why. If you're in it together, forge ahead together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may stumble upon an opportunity for which you are almost ready -- and by day's end, you certainly will be if you get busy right away.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Practicalities take up much of your time today as you try to fit your own desires into a framework that others can understand and embrace.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't really want to follow any established formula today as you begin working toward a new goal -- but can you really afford to improvise?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Watching the clock will not help you go faster today -- and, in fact, it may do just the opposite. You'll know when you're ready to cross the finish line.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be trying just a bit too hard to satisfy someone's expectations at this time. Look within instead: What is it that you most want?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to deal with someone who can be rather "shifty" today -- but you'll surely have the advantage because you know all the angles.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You don't have to stay at your desk today and work continuously on one project. Take time, at regular intervals, to step away and refresh.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You receive good news today, which keeps you moving toward your desired destination. Someone will have to take another route.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can demonstrate your native creativity today in an unusual way -- and in an unusual setting. Not everyone will know what you're up to.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What role will you be playing today? Take a look at what is going on around you, and pick one that fits in. You don't want to make waves.
