HOROSCOPE

Although choosing a career is always difficult, your natural abilities will give you several career paths to explore. Sensitive and social, you may take a humanitarian career, such as teaching or counseling. In the same sense, your artistic inclinations could lead you on a path of expression, much like Peter Frampton who was also born on April 22nd. If your passions draw you into the world of entertainment, you may do well in the film or television industry, which was the case for Jack Nicholson, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
