Born today, you are something of a schemer, but this should not be considered a liability in any sense, by you or anyone else. All it means is that you are always working on some plan or other that will serve you in your professional endeavors, personal life or domestic affairs. You have a knack for seeing into the hearts and minds of those around you. Not only does this enable you to anticipate what might happen, but it also lets you plan for all manner of contingencies that others may not be able to forecast. It is this ability that you must always use for good; if you let yourself go into the darker places and use it toward any Machiavellian purpose, you will only make lasting trouble for yourself and others. Try to further the common good at all times!
You have a way of going about your business that seems easy and carefree, but the fact is that you work very hard to achieve this appearance of effortlessness. You don't let others see you sweat, but you surely do put yourself through your paces when you are striving to be the best that you can be.
Also born on this date are: Frank Sinatra, singer and actor; Bob Barker, game show host; Jennifer Connelly, actress; Regina Hall, actress; Bill Nighy, actor; Connie Francis, singer; Cathy Rigby, gymnast; Edvard Munch, painter; Ed Koch, New York City mayor; Edward G. Robinson, actor; Mayim Bialik, actress; Dionne Warwick, singer.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble explaining yourself to someone who is clearly on your side. You don't have to be crystal clear -- just honest.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The halfway point may seem like an important landmark, but in fact it is misleading: You have far more left to do than you realize.
