Born today, you are nothing if not keenly aware of what is going on around you and, in fact, your particular brand of perception often takes on an almost telepathic quality -- and even those who know you best don't know how you are able to know what you know. Indeed, you are not always aware yourself of what fuels your high-powered vision, but you certainly benefit from the keen, comprehensive understanding of the world that you have as a result.
You may not appear to be a strong or influential person, and there are times when others may not know you're even in the room. But they always know it when you depart, because you have a habit of leaving things in much better shape than they were when you found them -- and your life may be spent doing just such "housekeeping" again and again for yourself and others.
Also born on this date are: James Madison, U.S. president; Jerry Lewis, actor and comedian; Erik Estrada, actor; Victor Garber, actor; Mercedes McCambridge, actress; Bernardo Bertolucci, filmmaker; Chuck Woolery, game show host.

FRIDAY, MARCH 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have to think fast today in order to deal with a situation that someone else tosses to you in an irresponsible moment. You'll do well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're after some kind of guarantee today that is simply not available to you -- if it's even possible. You're going to have to take a risk.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be taking something personally at this time that is best forgiven and forgotten. You're only making things harder on yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may think that the solution someone comes up with to a current problem is unwise and outdated. Don't hesitate to share your ideas.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A situation you're facing today will require an aggressive approach, not a timid one. Take a deep breath and jump right in -- when you're ready.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you look closely at trends and indicators, you'll see that many things are going according to plan. Don't get complacent, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Even the most serious mistakes can be corrected at this time, so you mustn't let your fear of making one hold you back. Focus on the future.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be asked to share more about yourself today than makes you comfortable, but careful reflection will tell you that it must be done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It'll take more than know-how to get everything done today, but the power of your personality can reveal all possibilities to others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may actually be inviting trouble to come and roost by doing something intended to keep it at bay. Someone has miscommunicated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be feeling a bit gloomy today, especially about what lies just around the next corner. Much will change by the time you get there.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be unusually vulnerable from almost every angle today, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself most effectively.
