Born today, you are a logical, highly intelligent and always attentive individual who is able to absorb far more from the world around you than most other people -- and this allows you to learn things quickly and permanently. You are forever thinking about your place in the world, and you thrive on connecting with others in ways that are anything but commonplace or routine. You touch people very deeply and communicate with them in ways that are not quickly forgotten -- if ever.
There may be times in which you find it necessary to pick up the pace, because you risk being overtaken by someone who has become a rival in some sense. When compelled to defend yourself and your own unique status, you will do what you must -- even if it means engaging in a kind of interpersonal battle that can be won only by the combatant with the most nimble wits.
Also born on this date are: Jackie Chan, actor, martial artist and stuntman; Russell Crowe, actor; Ravi Shankar, musician; James Garner, actor; Billie Holiday, singer; Francis Ford Coppola, filmmaker; Wayne Rogers, actor.

THURSDAY, APRIL 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may become embroiled in a tangled situation involving conflicting motives and heated emotions. This is no fault of your own, however.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's a good day to tell others just what it is you really want. This is no small task, either -- for you've been waffling for some time!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Focus on the things that actually do come into focus; forcing your perspective to adjust is not the way to go today. What's on the line?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Try as you might, you may not be able to find the answers to a few essential questions today -- though you sense they are near at hand.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Issues of practicality are likely to surface today, despite any thorough planning you may have put in previously. You must deal with obstacles.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Continuing along your current course may seem the most practical of choices, but the fact is that a few very real dangers lie in your path.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Only if you stay in touch with a certain someone are you going to enjoy the benefits that were promised you. This point is non-negotiable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be held in thrall today by someone who does things in a very different way from the norm. Why not consider following this lead?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which is most prominent today isn't necessarily the most important. You may have to search high and low for the key issue.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't expect the answers to come to you all at once today; they'll be scattered about, and you'll pick them up one at a time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A minor shock has you far more off balance today than you might have thought -- but recovery can be quick when you realize what's going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Advice you receive today will have you wondering what signs you've been overlooking lately. Is nothing really as it seems? Look again.
