Born today, you are likely to luck out when you are relatively young and enjoy a professional break that actually propels you forward at a quick and steady pace toward the kind of success of which others only dream. This doesn't mean, of course, that your success is guaranteed; on the contrary, you must always work hard, prioritize and do what you can to better your chances, but you will surely benefit from that rare and unusual start that you were given way back when. You are not always the kind to dedicate yourself to a single line of endeavor, however. Take care, for steady distractions can keep you from fulfilling your true potential.
You appreciate the big picture, but you have much more fun examining the small details that lie within. You would rather spend hours contemplating something minute and significant than a few highly charged minutes experiencing something big, loud and outrageous. You are studious by nature.
Also born on this date are: Dule Hill, actor; Bing Crosby, actor and singer; Frankie Valli, singer; Pete Seeger, singer-songwriter; Sugar Ray Robinson, boxer; Christina Hendricks, actress; Golda Meir, former prime minister of Israel; Christopher Cross, singer; Doug Henning, magician; Niccolo Machiavelli, author and philosopher; Mary Astor, actress.
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.
SUNDAY, MAY 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- While you're trying to figure out what happened and why, someone else is likely to exploit your recent error and use it to get ahead of you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Things aren't likely to pan out exactly as you had hoped -- but in some ways, as a result, they will exceed your expectations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The beginning and ending of a thing are likely to become somewhat blurred. Which end you are at will depend upon your point of view.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're coming out of a kind of funk, but you needn't let others know that you're not feeling quite up to a coming challenge.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're ready to start something new, but you're going to need a partner to make the best of it. Let the search begin; it can be fun!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you do with a younger family member can prove quite liberating to you -- especially when you realize what is or isn't at stake.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're trying to make sense out of something that has been nothing more than a feeling for quite a while.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may get a "talking-to" from someone who thinks that he or she is in charge of what you do during the day. Don't take it too seriously.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The end of something significant is right around the corner, but you may not be ready to close the book on this particular episode.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You and a former partner may have to come together to straighten things out for a third party. This reunion may be semi-permanent.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Take care that you don't let anger rule your decision-making. What you say in the heat of the moment can endanger something valuable.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be showing signs of wear around the edges; perhaps it's time to give yourself a little well-deserved time off.
