If you were born today - 21 April

If you were born today - 21 April

People born today are the first to be born officially under Taurus, the fixed earth sign. The next few weeks, and in fact months, look good for Taureans,  as the chart is strong for personal relationships and Pluto and the Moon are promising plenty of fresh energy and ideas.  Always practical, Taureans will find this new energy works well with their planning abilities and decisions and goals made now should stand you in good stead for the coming months.  Take some time this week to complete unfinished projects, and clear the deck for new ones so that you are starting on a good footing. If you were born today you share your birthday with two very famous English females. Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21 1926.  Her 57 year reign as the monarch of England can undoubtedly be described as having Taurus' traits of reliability and steadiness.  Although the Royal Family has lost it's importance and much of it's respect over the past fifty years, as the Empire and Commonwealth dissolved,  Elizabeth was a much loved figure during Britain's struggles during World War II and she has always ruled with grace and dignity. The author Charlotte Brontë was also born on April 21, in 1816.  Charlotte was the eldest of the three famous Brontë sisters,  and is most famous for her novel Jane Eyre, which is considered a classic, and taught in many high schools.  She published this fictitious 'autobiography' under the pen name Currer Bell,  a tactic which gave the book more credibility than if it had been published as a novel. This idea is a typical example of Taurean practical creativity, which they get from their ruling planet; Venus, The Creator. Actors celebrating a birthday today include Andie MacDowell, James McAvoy and Tony Danza (best known for television series Taxi) who have also used their Taurean creativity in their careers, while their pragmatic nature has perhaps guided them to take roles that will let them pay the bills,  rather than being guided by an artistic passion to be more selective about which parts to take. Musician Iggy Pop who is also known as "the Godfather of Punk" was also born on April 21st, as well as a determined Taurean named Briton Maurice Wilson, who attempted to climb Mount Everest alone in 1934 but unfortunately died during his attempt. Your Horoscope for 21st April If you went ahead and made plans yesterday,  they will be subject to the scrutiny of others today.  Take advice from those you trust and who have your best interests at heart,  but pay no attention to comments from people who don't know you well enough for their opinions to have any kind of value.  If this week is all about 'cleaning house' and wiping the slate clean then perhaps that includes friendships.  Use this as a time to sound out who is a loyal friend and who might be happier to see you fail.
