Born today, you are a powerhouse of energy, vision and ability -- and yet you may not always be recognized for your most significant achievements, because the force of your personality alone is sure to influence how others see you and shape how they think about you and your doings. In other words, though you're likely to do a great deal in your lifetime, your personality alone is likely to be a distraction to others.
You are concerned with your own capabilities and in doing all you can with the considerable talents you have been endowed. You don't care what others think of you or how you "rank" in the scheme of things. You are confident and capable, and you go about your business without giving much thought to what might distract others.
Also born on this date are: James Franco, actor; Kate Hudson, actress; Ashley Judd, actress; Maria Sharapova, tennis player; Hayden Christensen, actor; Tim Curry, actor; Jayne Mansfield, actress; Dudley Moore, actor, comedian and musician.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, APRIL 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's a good day for experimenting with how your words convey your meaning. There is no right or wrong right now; experiment freely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Focus on what you know, not on what you don't. Others may remind you of the missing pieces, but your strength comes from information already gathered.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The more sheepishly you approach a certain situation today, the more likely you will be to succumb to it quickly -- and not in a good way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're waiting to let someone know just how he or she has fared in a recent contest. You're in charge, and you know what's possible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It may be apparent to you what has or hasn't been done in preparation for a certain game or task, but you must resist the temptation to step in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Control is the name of the game today. Don't think that you lack what it takes; you know what you know, and that's what matters most.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are not likely to be equipped with all the tools that would be useful in the situation in which you find yourself -- but you have enough.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Make no promises today unless you know you can keep them. Others will be pressing you to step out of your comfort zone -- but you needn't.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may think that you've hit upon a "new" method of doing something that makes it much easier -- but you may be fooling yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're eager to see how something is going to turn out, but you haven't yet finished with your contribution. It's not over yet!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may feel as though you are coming up short, but you are doing all you can to support another at this time. The work continues.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is no time for finger-pointing. You'll want to get to the bottom of a certain situation, but you can do it without singling out anyone.
