Born today, you can behave rather abruptly, without so much as a warning or, in many cases, a plan -- but this often gives you the advantage over those who are more careful, thoughtful and slow in their approaches to life's daily problems. Indeed, being quick is one of your trademarks; you are never one to put off until tomorrow what you can do today -- and even then you are likely to be much faster than most! You can be something of a perfectionist, however, which means that you're not likely to leave something alone once you've done it; rather, you are probably going to go back and see if you can't make it better in some way -- many times.
You are sometimes driven by a love of profit, but you must remember that profit itself does not always come to you in the form of financial gain. You must be able to recognize other kinds of profit when they are presented to you -- and be willing and able to take advantage of them.
Also born on this date are: Natasha Richardson, actress; Martha Quinn, MTV VJ; Margaret Rutherford, actress; Martha Graham, dancer and choreographer.

SUNDAY, MAY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't want to miss out on what may prove to be just the kind of opportunity you've been looking for lately. Stay active and involved.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will be questioning your own motives for a time today, even as you make remarkable progress. Certain doubts prove stubborn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to pick up the pace considerably if you're going to have a project finished on time -- and under budget.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must realize that your primary concerns may not be shared by the powers that be. It's time to work toward a productive compromise.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What begins in one vein today is likely to change significantly and end in a very different one. Mood swings, too, are rampant.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself thinking about "the way things used to be" a great deal at this time -- but your memory may not be entirely accurate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What comes naturally and feels right is certainly worth a try, but if you cross paths with someone who is offended, changes must be made.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may experience some friction with a friend as a result of a decision you feel you were forced into.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Now is the time for you to write down what you really think, so that you can keep it on hand for later. You can be brutally honest.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must be ready for things to turn on a dime today. You have reason to think that someone is throwing you a curve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not fully understand the significance of a certain prevailing metaphor today -- but a friend throws you timely hints.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be tempted to bend the rules just a bit to increase your advantage today, but be aware that someone is looking over your shoulder.
