Born today, you are one of the most creative individuals born under your sign, but this does not by any means suggest that you have your head in the clouds or that you live in a state of disconnection from the real world. On the contrary, you are no mere dreamer; your feet are set solidly on the ground, and you are fully aware of the realities that surround you day after day. It is this, in fact, that gives you your greatest strength, making your seemingly boundless creativity even more remarkable: The fact that you are able to do what you do even while staring the real world in the face certainly separates you from the crowd. You are able to look at long-standing problems in new ways and devise solutions that can be permanent.
When you are young, you may go through a phase in which you are quite impressionable, vulnerable to all manner of influences, both good and bad. As you mature, however, you will come to understand what it is you are meant to do, and which of your mentors you truly wish to follow to fulfill your destiny. You don't have to listen to everyone!
Also born on this date are: Mike Myers, actor; Sir Ian McKellen, actor; Frank Oz, director and voice actor; Anne Heche, actress; Cillian Murphy, actor; Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher; Dixie Carter, actress; Leslie Uggams, actress; Karen Valentine, actress; Connie Sellecca, actress; Claude Akins, actor.

TUESDAY, MAY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be eager for the chance to prove yourself in a new role, but that chance may come at an unexpected price.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are well-equipped for a coming trial, but take care that you don't make any assumptions that could possibly weaken your position.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can rally forces to serve you well in your current endeavors, particularly if you've recently made a professional change.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not in the mood to mix and mingle with the same old folks; you want to explore options that arise among a different set of people.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You feel very strongly about even the most minute details, and you're certainly not willing to overlook anyone's mistakes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't jump to conclusions, and don't force someone in charge to abandon his or her habitual easy approach. Keep things in harmony.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're usually one to follow the rules, yes, but a situation will arise that may require you to bend them almost to the breaking point.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must insist that others follow your lead if you wish to make the best of a quickly evolving situation. Use gentle persuasion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be disappointed when a good friend or loved one is a no-show, but he or she surely has a good reason to be absent.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to be sure you have enough time later in the day to explain a passing comment you make during morning hours.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can impress the powers that be by doing precisely what it is you do best -- indeed better, perhaps, than most others.
