Born today, you are never one to be questioned about virtually anything without having an answer ready to go, for you are not only a very thoughtful individual, but a knowledgeable, well-read and expressive one as well -- and you love nothing more than being able to answer the difficult questions. You are also quite adventurous, and though you are certainly not foolhardy, you're likely to engage in all manner of endeavors that others might choose to avoid out of an abundance of caution. You enjoy exploration of all kinds.
You can work within the rules, but you prefer to operate in that rare environment in which there are none -- yet. This means, of course, that you're free to behave in any way that suits you and the situation you're in, without having to worry about "should" or "shouldn't" or "must" or "mustn't"! You want to make the rules, not follow them.
Also born on this date are: Sir Edmund Hillary, mountaineer; Francesco Petrarch, poet; Carlos Santana, musician; Natalie Wood, actress; Omar Epps, actor; Sandra Oh, actress.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to take decisive action today not only to get something done your way, but also to send a certain message to your rivals.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone's hold over you will increase today, and you may find it difficult to resist his or her attempts to win you over at last.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A minor shock has you reconsidering your current course. Not everything is going according to plan -- but that was to be expected, was it not?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A minor difficulty stops you in your tracks today -- but you should be able to sidestep it when you get going again. Don't wait too long!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll learn something important about yourself today when you compare a recent performance with that of an expert. You have work to do!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- When it comes time for someone to step in and take a burden from your shoulders, all you have to do is ask; a certain someone is ready.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your plans are getting far more complicated than they need to be -- but only you can make the one change that will streamline the process.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find it difficult today to maintain a course of action that has been paying off for you in recent weeks. You must stay the course!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A short trip yields more in the way of necessities today than expected. See if you can't persuade a friend to help you put things in place.
