Born today, you know how to pick yourself up and start over again when you fall, which you are sure to do now and then because you are so daring in your pursuit of personal success. Fortunately, you will have been taught when quite young that mistakes and missteps are all a part of life, and that you can learn almost more from them than you can from any progress or success. You are constantly judging and assessing your decisions, your actions and your accomplishments, eager to be a better person and to improve yourself on a daily basis.
You are likely to be widely admired, simply because you hold true to your ideals and "stay the course" as a matter of principle. You can be unusually sensitive -- far more so than many a Taurus native, in fact -- but you turn this into an asset and never let it become a liability.
Also born on this date are: Tim McGraw, country singer and actor; Ray Parker Jr., singer; Rita Coolidge, singer; Judy Collins, singer; Glenn Ford, actor; Kate Smith, singer.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, MAY 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Trust is the major issue today, and you should know whether or not you have assembled a team you can trust before the end of the day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You've been playing by someone else's rules long enough. Today is the day for you to break free from constraints you can no longer tolerate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may want to take yourself a little more seriously at this time. A new friend is likely to become more important to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've had it with the same old routine -- but you may not know the way out just yet. Keep your eyes open for a rare and attractive opportunity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone may be trying to hold you down, but you won't take no for an answer. What happens to you today will leave a lasting impression.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can have almost anything you want today, but you must be willing to ask for it -- and do a certain something that is asked of you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- After your eyes are opened to a new situation that is quickly developing, there may be no stopping you. Someone rolls out the red carpet.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may realize that style and substance are both important today -- but you must start with substance. Another revelation can be yours as well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can contribute to another's success today, but you may have to sacrifice a little something on your own home turf.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take care not to overthink problems today; they are really very easy to solve if you take them one at a time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone may be taking charge of situations that are really yours to control. You must be willing to stand up for yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You and a rival are poised to go round and round again -- unless you are willing to make a change that eases tensions considerably.
