Born today, you are not one to become bored very often, as you have a knack for deriving great enjoyment out of even the most routine, mundane, repetitive situations and tasks. You will no doubt have learned at an early age the value of jumping in and giving things a go in a brave, unabashed fashion, and this is the style of living to which you will likely be committed throughout your lifetime. You simply don't know any other way to live! Opportunities are likely to present themselves to you again and again, to the point that those around you may become rather jealous of you and your penchant for being in the right place at the right time. Some call you "lucky," but you know better!
You are highly creative, and you can make of an age-old endeavor something new and exciting. You enjoy putting your own spin on things and doing things in your own unique way. This is no doubt a product of your singular view of the world -- one that you share with no one.
Also born on this date are: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composer; Eva Peron, Argentinian former first lady; Gary Cooper, actor; Traci Lords, actress; Johannes Brahms, composer; Johnny Unitas, football player; Robert Browning, poet; Darren McGavin, actor; Anne Baxter, actress.

FRIDAY, MAY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself on the inside track. As a result, you can finish the day with more than you had when you began it. Reach!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Are you going to believe without question what someone tells you, or are you going to find out the truth for yourself? Choose!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find yourself bending the rules, but take care that one of them doesn't suddenly snap, putting you in real trouble.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Are you ready to sell yourself for what you are worth, or are you going to continue to give yourself away? That's the situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be nearer than you know to what you really want. Pay attention to the signs that others are pointing out to you; they know the truth.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to sidestep a certain obstacle before picking up the pace and moving ever closer to a prized goal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Getting there is half the fun -- or even more than that. You'll want to keep your eyes open throughout the journey you are taking.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you do behind closed doors is nobody else's business, despite what some might tell you. It's time to draw the line, perhaps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be put to a certain test before the day is out. How you react to it is just as important as whether or not you pass.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're counting your blessings, surely, but are you really appreciating them? You have more than meets the eye -- at least right now.
