Born today, you aren't the kind to sit back and let something happen to you without reacting in a way that makes clear both your feelings on the matter and what you intend to do about it. To put it another way, you are never willing to remain passive when action is called for. You are no victim, and you will always do what you can to improve yourself and your circumstances. There are times, certainly, when your thoughts and actions may not be the most popular, but even when you are doing things that are controversial, you are sure to win the admiration of those who already hold you in high esteem -- and there are many! You have what it takes to be a hero to a lot of people.
Because you are so quick to take things into your own hands, you are sure to chart your own course even when others insist that you follow in their footsteps. This is sure to result in conflict, but it is the kind of conflict from which progress can result. Indeed, you are no fan of fighting, but you will fight when backed against a wall.
Also born on this date are: Malcolm X, civil rights leader; Andre the Giant, wrestler and actor; Grace Jones, singer; Pete Townshend, singer-songwriter and musician; Joey Ramone, singer; Peter Mayhew, actor; Ho Chi Minh, former Vietnamese president; Nora Ephron, screenwriter and director; James Fox, actor.

TUESDAY, MAY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're eager to dig deeper than usual and get to the heart of a personal mystery that has been hanging over you for quite some time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You suspect that someone is trying something that is not altogether legitimate, yet you are not exactly in a position to do anything about it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to feel yourself pulled in two separate directions, and that's not altogether unfamiliar to you. Ask questions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have the chance to do more around the house than you had thought, even though you may not have your plans finalized just yet.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The promise of what is to come has you excited about the day's events, even those that at first seem routine. Something new is in the air.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're ready to give someone exactly what he or she has asked for, but you have to wait until he or she is ready for you to give it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Dynamics between you and a good friend may be unusually complicated. You'll want to wait for some answers before taking that risk.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not understand all of the instructions you are given, but you get the gist and can win results through clever improvisation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Are you feeling confident and capable? Much that has to be done will require a stable, secure sense of self.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to rearrange your schedule somewhat after you realize that you have left something rather pivotal undone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're getting good reports about past work, and today you'll want to improve on things, but that will add an element of danger.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your own originality will surely be a strength; not everyone has what you have, and today it will count for much!
