Born today, you have keen instincts, and you are able to rise above those who get mired in unfortunate situations brought about by social miscues. You never seem to rub others the wrong way, and you have a knack for making difficult situations just a little less difficult, if not for yourself, then for others. In private, you can be quite critical of those who do not live up to your very high standards, but you're not the kind to spread any sort of negative feelings around by indulging in such criticism publicly. You are quite adept at judging how others are feeling at any given moment, and you know how to act in a way that accentuates the positive and minimizes the negative.
You are one of the first that others go to when they are running short of plans or strategies, for you are a virtual font of ideas that can be used in a variety of situations. You seem to be quite at home in many settings, and when others are uncomfortable, you can put them at ease.
Also born on this date are: Debby Ryan, actress; Stevie Wonder, singer-songwriter and musician; Darius Rucker, singer; Dennis Rodman, basketball player; Ritchie Valens, singer; Stephen Colbert, comedian and television host; Bea Arthur, actress; Joe Louis, boxer; Harvey Keitel, actor; Mary Wells, singer; Zoe Wanamaker, actress; Barry Zito, baseball player; Pope Pius IX; Alan Ball, writer and producer; Sir Arthur Sullivan, composer; Bobby Valentine, baseball coach.
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.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An announcement is made that puts you on the defensive at first, but later you'll realize that there is little or no danger involved.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be sure to offer reasons for your behavior when you are asked for them -- not excuses. You know the difference!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What happens after dark today can prove much more compelling -- and ultimately profitable -- than any daytime affairs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're going to want to let things develop in an organic fashion today; don't be tempted to force things into any predetermined order.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be surprised to discover what others have known for quite some time. Today is a good day to catch up as much as you can.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have something to offer another that will be a surprise at first, but very soon it will seem like the only viable choice.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've been assuming much that has been proven untrue -- or, at the very least, unlikely. Your opinions of another will be altered.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Timing is the key to success. Doing something at the perfect moment may not be entirely possible, but you can come quite close.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your connections to others will be highlighted throughout the day. You can't do anything at this time without affecting someone else.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Give yourself the credit you deserve, and others will do the same. You've done much recently that warrants both attention and reward.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to start something with someone who appears to be a good match for you. Today brings more than one surprise.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself separated from the things that bring you comfort, but you can arrange to get back into the fold very soon.
