Born today, you are able to attract a great deal of attention just by doing what you do and being yourself. Even from an early age, you were likely to be surrounded by all manner of admirers -- in the classroom, on the playground and wherever you chose to go. As you matured, you no doubt learned to cultivate this natural ability and to use it to your advantage, and there may have been times when you let yourself be perhaps a bit too manipulative. Eventually, when you came into your own, you realized that winning the hearts of others didn't depend on any particular action on your part; you just naturally drew people into your orbit.
The things you do well, you very likely do better than anyone else -- though you're certainly not the kind to blow your own horn! You are confident that your skills will serve you adequately in a down-to-earth, low-key sort of way -- and so they do, again and again. Success, for you, is something unique and highly personal.
Also born on this date are: Willie Nelson, singer; Kirsten Dunst, actress; Cloris Leachman, actress; Eve Arden, actress; Jill Clayburgh, actress; Jane Campion, screenwriter; Burt Young, actor.

THURSDAY, MAY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll enjoy spending time with friends, provided you have cleared your plate of pressing tasks that would otherwise be hanging over you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be required to put in a little extra effort. Don't make the mistake of thinking that "routine" means "easy."
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be pulled in more than one direction at once. Someone close to you knows just how much a certain activity means to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your dreams, both waking and sleeping, will tell you a great deal about what is most important to you at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be following a trail straight toward a formerly unimagined destination. What you learn will enable you to break free in many ways.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not feel as though you are running on all cylinders. It will take more than a simple tune-up to remedy the situation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can find a way out of a certain situation that does not offer you what you had expected. Just around the corner is something better.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have a great deal of support, but you must tend to a certain key responsibility entirely on your own.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's a good day for engaging in some trial and error. What you don't get right the first time works out well by day's end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your desires haven't changed much since you last checked in with yourself. What is different is the path you take in pursuing them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A new strategy begins to take shape, but you may have to engage in a little research before you have all the information you require.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your focus has been a little fuzzy lately, but today you can see things much more clearly and avoid heading down the wrong path.
