Born today, you are not always the most popular person on the block, but you're sure to attract the attention of those around you and inspire some kind of feelings -- and whether they are negative or positive really matters very little to you. You agree with Oscar Wilde that the only thing worse than being talked about is NOT being talked about, and you will always do everything you can to stay in the forefront of people's minds -- and on their tongues, too.
You have been endowed with an almost irresistible attraction to people who share your talents and your way of thinking about the world. Indeed, when it comes to affairs of the heart, you're almost always led by your perceptions of another person's abilities: If he or she displays talent first and foremost, it is almost certainly someone with whom you will want to become involved.
Also born on this date are: Venus Williams, tennis player; Barry Manilow, singer and songwriter; Greg Kinnear, actor; Igor Stravinsky, composer; Thomas Haden Church, actor; M.C. Escher, artist; Joe Piscopo, actor and comedian.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The highlights of this day can be shared with others when the time comes -- but you must resist the temptation to embellish. Tell the truth.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Though you usually trust your instincts and listen to what your emotions are telling you, today you must do what you are told without question.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in a position that allows you to see things with greater clarity than usual -- but that's not all you need. You must think fast as well!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to see the quality of someone's work increase, and the best way to encourage that is to lead by example. Do so today!
