Born today, you eagerly cope with life's ups and downs, knowing full well that the less pleasant parts of any day make the better parts that much better. You have a healthy grasp of reality, but you are also able to fantasize vividly about the way things could be, should be and will be -- someday. You tend to be rather quiet and unwilling to share your personal feelings and beliefs unless there is a very good reason to do so. Indeed, you derive a great deal of strength and contentment from guarding your privacy and ensuring that your life is your own. You can be quite imposing, yet you are sensitive and refined; you can be rather imperious, yet you are perfectly willing to let others take the reins.
What happens every day is the stuff of a rich and varied life, as far as you are concerned. You enjoy the little things and can immerse yourself in routine just as much as in the extraordinary and singular. You never want a day to go by without taking notice of the world around you.

FRIDAY, MAY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are able to get more done than you had anticipated, but that doesn't mean you'll be in a position that allows you to slack off.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know how much you are asking of those around you. When the time comes, you'll want to show your gratitude in a special way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've got a little more in you, so why not give it that one last little bit of effort before taking a rest and moving on to something else?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't let yourself be fooled by someone who is simply trying to slow you down so he or she can move ahead of you -- perhaps for good.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your unwillingness to give in for whatever reason is actually doing you more harm than good at this time. You must be more flexible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Something that seems too good to be true is worth a second close look. It may well be just as good as it appears!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know just what you want, but the way to get it may be fraught with danger. Still, you're feeling confident and capable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to approach a current problem from a completely new angle. That way, you can learn as much as possible as you work.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're tempted to take someone up on an offer that seemed to come at an unusual time. Use caution! It's not what it appears to be.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be asked to back up your actions with reasons that make sense not only to you, but to the observer as well. Be prepared.
