Born today, you are an optimistic individual, but you are also able to look at the world in a wholly realistic fashion. Your expectations never reach past that which makes sense within the realm of true possibility, and you build your dreams and aspirations upon a strong foundation of realistic thought and action. You always try to hope for the best and prepare for the worst, and this gives you a distinct advantage over those who only do one or the other. You are confident, capable and always evolving; you learn from your mistakes, you are able to change with shifting circumstances and you never let yourself overreact to anything, whether good or bad.
You have a distinct style that others both appreciate and try to imitate, yet no one is really able to hit the mark when it comes to doing what you do, in the way you do it. You are certain to attract a great many admirers in your lifetime -- those with whom you are eager to work, play and share your life's aspirations.
Also born on this date are: Naomi Campbell, model; Katie Price, model; Ginnifer Goodwin, actress; Apolo Ohno, Olympic speed skater; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author; Harvey Milk, politician and civil rights leader; Richard Wagner, composer; Sir Laurence Olivier, actor and director; Mary Cassatt, artist; Paul Winfield, actor; Richard Benjamin, actor; Michael Constantine, actor.

SATURDAY, MAY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may slip and reveal something that you've been working hard to keep under wraps. Ill effects are very few, in fact.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A certain endeavor is far more challenging than you had expected, but if you stick with it, you can learn an important lesson.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may attract the wrong kind of attention at first, but later you can be quite effective at changing people's minds.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There are many details to be sorted out, but you must start with an overall picture in your mind that is clearly in focus.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone who has been out of the picture for quite a while is likely to influence you in ways that you might never expect. Be ready.
