Born today, you are a study in contradictions -- or, at least, so you will seem until the day comes when you are granted the opportunity to let one side of your personality rise to dominance and become your essential influence and motivator. What you eventually do may be anyone's guess, but you can take this to the bank: You will do it in a way that no one has done it before, and you will be both praised and criticized for the manner in which you excel.
Also born on this date are: Samuel Morse, inventor of Morse code; Ulysses S. Grant, U.S. military leader and president; Coretta Scott King, equal rights activist; Mary Wollstonecraft, author and women's rights activist; Casey Kasem, radio host.
You are fiercely loyal -- to your work, to other people, to your ideals and to your way of life. You will go to the mat to fight for what you believe in, and no one had better stand in your way.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone isn't playing by the rules, perhaps, but that doesn't mean you can do the same. You must approach all things in a legitimate manner.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be surprised by all that transpires today when you were counting on only one thing to involve you fully. A busy phase begins right now!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An opportunity is just about to pass you by -- unless you do all you can to take advantage of it. Tomorrow is likely to be too late.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can afford to invest a little more in an endeavor that promises to expose you to several new things that you'll find great interest in.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Once everyone around you is up and going about their business, you'll be able to enjoy a little freedom to get your own day started as you will.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have a run-in today with someone who is notoriously difficult to work with, but he or she is likely to back down if you press your case.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A creative endeavor begins slowly today, but you'll be able to pick up the pace as soon as everyone knows what his or her job really is.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must be ready to jump into the fray as soon as you receive the signal you are waiting for; any delay can cause you to sacrifice much.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can teach someone how to do what you know how to do -- but not quite as well, perhaps. Some things simply do not translate at this time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be entertaining the very beginning of an idea right now, but you can't force it to develop sooner than it will. Be patient.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A minor error may have major consequences today, especially if you're not quick to catch it and correct it. Be sure to check your work!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are not in any real danger today, though you may not be feeling quite up to snuff. The reason should become clear by day's end.
