Born today, you are an energetic and forceful individual with a great deal of personal charisma and the vision and skill required to make a better future for yourself and for others. You are never satisfied with doing the same old thing again and again; you want to take what you have done before -- and what others have done, also -- and build upon it, making it bigger, better and more rewarding than ever before. You can, at times, be difficult to deal with, especially when you get the bit between your teeth and refuse to listen to any dissenting views. But such times are rare; you are usually quite collaborative, though certainly destined to play a leading role.
Your endeavors are not likely to go unnoticed, and you must always go about your business knowing that others are paying attention to your every move, whether large or small. It's important that you play by the rules -- unless, of course, you are doing something that is actually designed to change those rules!
Also born on this date are: Cam Newton, football player; Salvador Dali, artist; Natasha Richardson, actress; Irving Berlin, songwriter; Louis Farrakhan, religious leader; Martha Graham, choreographer and dancer; Foster Brooks, actor; Tim Blake Nelson, actor; Martha Quinn, television personality; Cory Monteith, actor; Phil Silvers, actor and comedian; Frances Fisher, actress; Laetitia Casta, model; Amanda Freitag, celebrity chef.

TUESDAY, MAY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're working hard to clarify something that has only been suggested by others. Avoid doing anything that can be misinterpreted in turn.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is not the time for skipping around willy-nilly. You must strategize and come up with an agenda you and others can follow faithfully.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to get your hands on a certain something, but take care that you don't wind up with too much of a good thing!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The results you get will be contingent upon the methods you adopt to pursue them. Everything is interconnected in this way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be waiting to hear from someone who will prove instrumental in shaping your immediate future. You've got options, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may complain to someone that something can't be done, but a rival may have already demonstrated that it can be done quite well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Listen to what those in charge are saying about what lies ahead, and you'll be able to prepare more thoroughly and be ready to make changes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's time to face the facts and do what you must to turn things around. Try to make excuses, and others will surely see through you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take care that you don't let yourself be distracted by someone who doesn't understand the seriousness of your current situation.
