HOROSCOPE

Although finding the perfect career is a lifelong challenge, you are fortunate enough to have the determination to be successful in a wide variety of careers. Your desire for success could easily lead you to the world of business, marketing or advertising. On the other hand, your social inclinations could make you an effective teacher, counselor or salesperson. You may find your true passion is to entertain others, which was the case for Jay Leno, who was also born on April 28th. If you are drawn to the world of entertainment, your warmth could earn you a job in television or film, not unlike Jessica Alba, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
