Born today, you are not an easy nut to crack, and those who think they know you well are almost certain to be disappointed at some time when you fail to meet their expectations or dash their hopes in some way simply because you are not who they thought you were. The truth is that you were what they thought you were -- and a lot more, and it's that "more" that is the tricky part of your robust and complicated personality.
You are not as outwardly forceful as some who share your birth sign, and yet there is something deep within you that shines far more brightly than anyone else within your sphere of activity or influence. You are usually quite soft-spoken -- but for that reason, when you do speak, you are heard, and your words can surely resonate among a large audience for a long time.
Also born on this date are: Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president; Al Green, singer; Ron Perlman, actor; Tony Dow, actor; Hunter Pence, baseball player; Rick Schroder, actor; Don Adams, actor and comedian; Samuel Beckett, playwright.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Energy waxes and wanes today, but if you manage it wisely, you'll be able to ride what comes in expert fashion. Others are paying attention.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in no mood for the same old stories today, but take care you're not turning away from that which can actually do you some good!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Why are you so concerned with what others are thinking? There is much more to take up your time than their opinions -- whether right or wrong.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You sense that you're nearing a crossroads of some kind -- and you wouldn't be wrong, exactly, though the specifics are not yet known.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is no time to hide behind any kind of falsehood. Focus on the truth -- and on ways to promote it among others. You'll do what's necessary.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your capacity for critical thinking will be put to the test today. Don't let others know what you're thinking until it's time to tell all.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your plans may clash with another's today, but that's no reason to abandon them. Indeed, there is much to be said for working together.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- There is a lot going on today that you will find interesting. Including a friend or loved one can better your odds, but make no assumptions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll receive instructions today that seem to go against your overall intent, but you can do nothing about it if you say nothing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may come up with the "big idea" today, but success or failure will lie in the details. You may require some assistance in this regard.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to experience something today that sets you on a path to discovery, and your enthusiasm increases exponentially.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't allow yourself to display any frustration today, no matter how slowly you may be going. There's a reason you can't yet speed up.
