Saint Of The Day:

Glenn Miller

. Miller played the trombone wih a number of dance bands, then, in 1938 formed the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and began to play a distinctive sound that marks him as one of the great American band leaders. Men and women, boys and girls, still dance to his arrangements of "In the Mood," "Tuxedo Junction," "Moonlight Serenade," and "Chattanooga Choo Choo." Miller was born March 1, 1904, and died in a plane crash during a World War II flight from England to Paris on December 15, 1944.

Model: Miller's drive to be different. You are absolutely unique. Once you figure out what it is that makes you unique, make the most of it.

Your Birthday Today:

March 1

Day of Aesthetics

Aesthetic, Technical, Aspiring

Insecure, Escapist, Non-confrontational

An eye for aesthetics. If you were born on March 1 you have a natural talent for artistic expression and a great feel for your environment. You appreciate beauty in art, people, nature and everyday life. Ruled by the number 1 and the sun, you like to be first and are often unconventional.

Whim or wisdom? Those who take you as too whimsical are surprised at how practical you can be. You can be orderly and punctual or sloppy and late; it all depends on what kind of mood you're in that day, and how important that day is to you. It's not a lack of discipline, just a refusal to be anal-retentive about life.

Public appearances. If you are inclined toward business or politics you know how important it is to be charming and diplomatic. You are usually very attentive to your appearance and surroundings. Your aesthetic sensibilities are reflected in the elegant way you handle your responsibilities. You have no patience for people who are rude, abrupt or unkind.

Personal problems. You like to laugh and enjoy yourself, not wallow in personal problems. In your work, you meet each problem head-on and take it as a challenge. But in your personal life, you take problems much more, well, personal. You tend to cut and run too early, then carry your failure heavily on your shoulders.

Some Advice : You must learn to face your problems, especially those involving others. Be more aggressive. Don't close yourself off.
