Taurus is a charming, home-loving but stubborn birthday person.
Anyone born this week is not only involved with family, but also with the practical need to have money.
Taurus is one of these fixed, practical signs of the Zodiac. They know the importance of money and all it can buy because Taurus loves to collect things. They tend to hold on to their possessions as long as they can.
The Taurus is extremely patient, but when you manage to get them angry, watch out. They have a temper, but it is seldom displayed because they work hard to keep it under control.
The Taurus is involved with the home and family. It is important to them. Also their opinions on any subject are firm and seldom change.
An argument with this fixed sign is a totally lost cause.
People who have or are celebrating birthdays this week are: James Franco, April 19, 1978; Carmen Electra, April 20, 1972; Tony Danza, April 21, 1951; Jack Nicholson, April 22, 1937; Shirley Temple, April 23, 1928; Kelly Clarkson, April 24, 1982; and Al Pacino, April 25, 1940.
April of this year is a big month for eclipses. The second one this month is a solar eclipse on April 29. It will be felt on Earth during the New Moon in Taurus.
No wonder Stephen Colbert got the big job on “Late Show” job replacing David Letterman when David retires in 2015. Colbert is a Taurus born on May 13, 1964. He is one of 11 children. He has three children of his own.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The best way to deal with any stress you might be feeling now could be meditation. Plus, stay far away from negative people. You are in the middle of a talented time and you need to understand it will take you places you have never been. Look for a new BFF.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Since you like being in control, it might be a good time to get yourself as organized as possible. Reconsider some offers for a partnership dumped in your lap recently. When you get everything together you might like the opportunity. So go slow before making a final move.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) As you rate the new people coming into both your business and personal life, avoid being pessimistic, otherwise you are going to miss a real winner. A call this week could turn out to be very important in your life by opening some otherwise locked doors.
