Born today, you have been endowed with a tremendous desire to succeed, but you may not know, at an early age, just what path you are meant to follow or what tools you must develop in order to maximize your chances of success. There is a great likelihood, in fact, that you will practically stumble into a career -- but it will capture you completely, drawing you in and giving you the platform you need from which to announce yourself and your abilities to the world. Once you have begun doing the one special thing that you were meant to do, you are likely to skyrocket to the top with remarkable swiftness, leaving a bright trail for others to follow and admire.
Personal issues may cause you to stumble now and then; you may be, for example, too quick to marry, with the expected result that your first marriage dissolves, leaving you rather heartsick and confused about relationships in general. Ultimately, however, you can -- and should -- enjoy a lasting intimacy with that one special someone.
Also born on this date are: Billy Joel, singer-songwriter; Mike Wallace, journalist; Prince Fielder, baseball player; Rosario Dawson, actress; Candice Bergen, actress; Albert Finney, actor; John Brown, abolitionist leader; James L. Brooks, producer; John Corbett, actor; Tony Gwynn, baseball player; J.M. Barrie, writer.

SATURDAY, MAY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Traditional methods may actually work for you quite well, despite your eagerness to try something new.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a few new discoveries to make, but you must first shed a few outdated preconceptions that are holding you back.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An idea that is now in its infancy is likely to turn into something quite valuable -- to you and to those in your orbit.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not likely to react well to anyone who tries to take advantage of your labors for his or her own advancement. Draw the line!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll stumble upon an opportunity that leaves you somewhat breathless. When you calm down, you'll see how to begin.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't mistake the rewards you enjoy today for lasting gains. Those will come only after more hard work -- and perhaps one more setback.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be willing to accept the verdict of one who has been put in a position of authority -- whether you agree with it or not.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't want to break the rhythm of a current endeavor prematurely. Stick with it and don't let yourself become distracted.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must not let your attention wander from your primary goal today; focus intently on what you want, and it can be yours.
