Born today, you are confident but not overly so, and you know how to frame your confidence, how to "tee it up," so that it serves its purpose when you want to put it to good use. You know how to present yourself and your ideas in such a way that you simply exude know-how and expertise; others will surely listen to you for no other reason than you inspire confidence, and so you are able to persuade them of all manner of things -- not against their wills, exactly, but certainly in spite of any beliefs they may have that differ from your own.
When the time comes for you to get what you want, you surely know how, and you can work quickly and decisively to secure the results you seek. You will not stoop to behavior that is unfair or illicit, however.
Also born on this date are: Joss Stone, singer; Joel Grey, actor; Jennifer Esposito, actress; Ethel Kennedy, wife of Robert F. Kennedy; Meshach Taylor, actor; Lisa Stansfield, singer; Louise Lasser, actress; Dean Acheson, statesman; Bill Irwin, actor and clown.

MONDAY, APRIL 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Pay attention to how your cash flow is affected by certain behavior today. This should tell you what must happen in the days to come.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You want to be sure that your hypothesis is correct, but the answer you seek may not be available to you just yet. Try an unorthodox approach.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be puzzled by the seemingly random assortment of events that are affecting you both directly and indirectly today. Ask questions!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You cannot expect to control everything that is going on around you today. Pick and choose wisely, and your needs will be fulfilled.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which you've been warning others about is likely to come to pass today -- but the effects may be quite different from those you anticipated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The games you play with another today can yield much more real information than expected. You may be forming quite a profitable habit.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to experience one or two glitches early on today, and these serve as effective warnings to you that nobody is perfect!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must be ready with an alternate plan today, just in case things go wrong and you find that you're unable to do what you've prepared for.
