Born today, you are one of the most optimistic individuals born under your sign, but this doesn't mean you are in any way unrealistic. No Pollyanna, you nevertheless see things through a lens of opportunity and potential; even negative developments are usually considered by you to be opportunities for learning and progress -- even when they stand in your direct path and prevent you from reaching your most immediate goals. Still, you know how the world works, and you seem able to face the enemies to goodness, truth and progress with confident resolve -- and in that way you almost always get results.
You must never mistake optimism for being in a good mood, however! Indeed, there are times when you may fall under quite a dark cloud of gloom, and for no apparent reason. What separates you from most, however, is that you are usually able to remain quite productive even when you are in the grip of a considerable depression.
Also born on this date are: Patti LaBelle, singer; Priscilla Presley, actress; Tommy Chong, actor and comedian; Gary Burghoff, actor.

SATURDAY, MAY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to encounter certain dangers today -- but you'll realize very soon that they are self-made and can be self-eliminated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can have more fun than usual today, provided you set aside any feeling that you are in over your head -- which is an erroneous assumption.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to slow things down a bit today, not only because of interpersonal complications, but also for environmental reasons.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are demanding attention for the right reason, but you may not be doing it in the right way. This sends mixed signals, certainly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Get moving today! You don't want anyone who may hold the key to your success to think that you are stuck in a rut.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are giving enough for others to be completely satisfied -- so why are you feeling as though you are coming up short? Analyze this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone you meet today will give you the key to a major personal mystery -- and by day's end, you'll be on top of things in a new and exciting way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be pretending that things are all business right now, but the truth is that you are taking things far more personally than that.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your prospects are good at this time, but you may be confusing certain issues and leaving one or two stones unturned.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your personal perspective is in need of some adjustment today, if you expect to understand a friend more clearly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be confused by a friend's behavior today -- until you realize that he or she is going through something you went through recently.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can impress someone with your no-nonsense approach today, but take care that you don't overthink something that is really quite easy.
