- Las Vegas Review-Journal: and Eugenia Last: "Happy Birthday: Use your insight and emotional awareness to get your way. Gather information and support. Daydreaming must not replace turning your dreams into a reality. Be specific when dealing with authority figures or anyone you feel is capable of misinterpreting what you say. Focus on what's important to you and refuse to let past mistakes deter your progress. Your numbers are 3, 9, 16, 23, 28, 37, 41."
- Horoscope.com: "Happy birthday! Starting and finishing go together for you this year. Break free to start something new and exciting while you easily tie up loose ends. Be smart and dedicated to work that matters, especially in May, and waste no time, effort, or energy. Friends support you and no one can hold you back. Conclude something big in July. Relax with friends and family in August. You may want to spend more time on your own in December. Be busy with work and being excellent in January. Share dreams and fun times with more friends in February. Unexpected love is everywhere in the final months!"
- Daily Horoscopes: "Today has favorable aspects for financial dealings and if you have received money recently, there are some very good ways to invest it. Making your mark on the world has special importance and you will go all out to reach your goals this birth year. Achievement, ambition and authority take on a great deal of importance. Administering people and projects will become central to your lifestyle. Traveling in many directions at once may be a thing of the past–at least the restless movement. Talk about your plans before you take action–this will give you focus. Fun surprises are coming your way this afternoon. Expect good things to happen! A get-together with friends today predisposes you to cozy conversations and a fun celebration. Happy birthday!"
- Houston Chronicle: "People act differently in their homes than they do out in the general public. If you have a friend you only know in a public setting and would like to get to know more about this person, the Cancer moon suggests a house party tonight. Entertaining or being entertained where one lives will be most delightful."
- NY Post: "You won’t lack for fighting spirit this year but you may at times get confused as to who is your enemy. Maybe that’s because you don’t have an enemy. Maybe you are battling rivals who exist only in your head. Channel that fighting spirit constructively."
- Marjorie Orr: "IF IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be challenging at times and changeable so you'll need to stay on your toes and be flexible. You will find home and family a great source of comfort and support. Joint finances will need hard work to get them more secure and you'll be thrown back on your own resources at times. It won't be a time to get into debt. Your future plans will be undecided so wait till you know what you really want. After August you'll be sociable and outgoing."
- Georgia Nichols: "Author Sue Grafton (1940) shares your birthday today. You like to guide people. To do this, you sometimes share your impressions with others. Family is important because you are a nurturer. Something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. This is a gentle year where you will learn to serve others. This is also a good year to travel."

If You Were Born Today, April 24
You are a determined person and you intuitively know that with patience, you can accomplish anything you set out to do. You easily earn respect from others around you, due in part to your regal manner. Your family is extremely important to you, and many of your values are quite traditional, which keeps you grounded and responsible. However, you are unafraid of embracing the new, even if you do so slowly. Famous people born today: Shirley MacLaine, Barbara Streisand, Kelly Clarkson."
"The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
Your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do, and your ambitions are stimulated. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual. It's an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced. Temper and impatience are the things to avoid most - these will surely trip you up.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
You can be quite prolific with your work, mental interests, and projects. This should also be a quite sociable year, although it's not always about quantity and more often about quality of your connections.
There may be a problem with overshooting this year with Mercury-Mars-Jupiter strong in your Solar Return chart. However, you may very well need to stretch your mind in order to see new and overlooked opportunities.
Connections you make this year can be strengthening, growth-oriented ones. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. You have a taste for the offbeat this year.
This year is strong for new beginnings and interests. New ways or channels of communicating can open doors for you, but you might want to watch for controversy or rash moves. This is a good year in which to advance your goals and to quit bad habits. Priorities become clear. You are open to friendships and new ways of relating.
2015 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2016 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence."
