Born today, you are a vibrant individual with a great deal of the sort of self-esteem and confidence required by those who attempt to be the best at whatever they attempt -- and you are surely one of those! You don't do anything halfway. Whether it involves a career move, fun and games, love and romance, or even the deepest philosophical considerations, you will invest yourself fully to the degree that is suitable to the endeavor itself. What this means, of course, is that you are realistic. You will not devote your life to something that is only a short-lived pleasure, though you will not avoid such things, either! Rather, you will dedicate yourself to putting as much into it as you can get out of it; you will not waste your time or energy on something that doesn't pay off.
You are an original, surely, and you are likely to redefine any kind of professional endeavor you embrace as your own. Though you may start in a very traditional manner, you will soon discover that your unique style can secure you a place in history as one who is often imitated but never equaled.
Also born on this date are: Cher, singer and actress; Busta Rhymes, rapper; James Stewart, actor; Joe Cocker, singer; Tony Goldwyn, actor; Timothy Olyphant, actor; Mindy Cohn, actress; George Gobel, comedian; Ted Allen, television personality; Dolley Madison, U.S. first lady; David Wells, baseball player; Anthony Zerbe, actor.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is the time for you to pick up the pace and attempt what others have not been able to accomplish. The odds are very much in your favor.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- One more step gets you where you want to be, but it is likely to be quite a step, involving the avoidance of an unseen obstacle.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your awareness of what is really going on behind the scenes will give you an advantage over a rival. But don't get cocky!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you do around the house can prove quite important to someone who doesn't know just how to ask for the help he or she really needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone is waiting on your opinion before making a key decision. What you have to offer, when all is said and done, may come as a surprise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are not always the best person to share with, but you can and will prove a valued confidante to someone who is very much in need.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Things are not as orderly and sensible as you had hoped right now. You can do much to get your ducks -- and someone else's -- in a row.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you have promised may not be possible in the long run, but it's certainly worth a try. You'll be forgiven for falling short in the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your troubles are multiplying, but in ways that may fool you into thinking that everything is A-OK. A storm is surely brewing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not be able to make sense out of everything that transpires, but even that will make a certain amount of sense to you!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to be contacted by someone who has been watching you for some time, and who has a valid criticism to offer.
