Born today, you are one of the most conscientious and trustworthy individuals born under your sign. Your word is your bond. You seek the higher things in life -- goodness, honor, respectability -- and you most often find them not far from home, for they are the very mainstays of your existence. You strive for that which is so often sought by others as well, but where they fail, you usually succeed. Your secret? You have a way of seeing things in a simple, straightforward way, with few or no complications. In this way, you keep your life from becoming tangled and confused. You live in the world, but you don't let the world get the better of you.
You are never one to shy away from difficulty, even when that difficulty is not of your making. You will immerse yourself in tricky situations with one motive, and only one: to help those who cannot help themselves. You are quite caring and generous.

SUNDAY, MAY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are feeling confident and capable. Getting a certain challenging task done shouldn't really require any unusual effort.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may need to spend a little more time examining the picture that looms before you. The future holds something rather complex.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Once all the pieces of a certain puzzle are made available to you, you will have to spend some time putting them all into place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can work with someone to come up with a schedule that benefits both of you, without requiring either to make any sort of sacrifice.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're facing something that is routine, and something that is not. Do what you can to front-load your day, leaving routine affairs until later.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Trust may be put to the test, but when another goes to bat for you and moves things along successfully, you'll know where you stand.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're expecting too much from yourself if you are planning to tackle everything on your own. Collaboration is necessary.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Negative energy can only do you harm, in small but significant ways. Avoid those who habitually bring you down!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Fatigue may be taking a toll on you. Take time to rest and to let things go. You can't bear every burden yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Much depends on having everything in its proper place. Confusion reigns if you neglect to map things out ahead of time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can do a little more than you had anticipated, especially if you force yourself to make an early start.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The message you have been waiting for may not be anything new, but it contains a reminder that will be timely -- and certainly helpful.
