Born today, you have been blessed with the kind of energy and drive that should enable you to overcome almost any obstacle you meet in life -- whether personally, professionally or recreationally. This is not to say that doing so will be easy; on the contrary, you will often have to work very hard for what you want, but your gains will usually count for something and add up to much in the end. You're not one to be easily discouraged by the difficulties you face; you are able to dig deep within yourself and find what you need to apply to a given challenge. You know how to make the most of opportunities that come your way, and you appreciate how rare they may be!
In your personal affairs, you may be much more uncertain or insecure than others born under your sign, and this is likely the product of forces you cannot fully control. So, of course, if you cannot control the cause, you must learn to control the result -- but this may take you quite some time and require several false starts.
Also born on this date are: Chris Brown, singer; Adele, singer; Karl Marx, political philosopher; Tammy Wynette, singer; Brian Williams, journalist; John Rhys-Davies, actor; Tyrone Power, actor; Pat Carroll, actress; Michael Palin, actor, writer, comedian; Alice Faye, actress; Nellie Bly, journalist; Tina Yothers, actress; Lance Henriksen, actor; James Beard, chef.
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.
TUESDAY, MAY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What has happened to you in the past is only as important as you think it is -- your perspective is what makes all the difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to be paired with someone who does not initially respond well to your ideas -- but you'll soon get used to each other!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to remember that it is your job to give the person in charge what he or she is asking for -- and this may limit you somewhat.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The arrival of a third party has you ill at ease at first, but you'll soon realize that it's all for the best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to deal with a rival's jealousy when you do something that is considered "above and beyond."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You aren't likely to react well to the rules that you are forced to follow, but it's certainly for your own good.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have no options that are ideal. One, at least, will give you what you want, but a small compromise is involved.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A tough decision may be eased when you ask the powers that be what is really permissible. You may be misinterpreting the rules.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you have to offer is worth more than you think, so take care that you don't hold back when you're asked to present it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A disagreement early in the day results in far-reaching tension. Only you know how to reverse this and restore a sense of harmony.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The fact that you bring with you a certain rare expertise will serve you well when you join others in a relatively new endeavor.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- One promise is kept, and another is broken. In the end, you'll get the better part of the deal if you avoid a knee-jerk reaction.
