Born today, you are not destined for small things. You were born to be a headliner, to be the kind that others flock to see -- personally and professionally. You have many talents, but you're not likely to explore all of them with the intent of using them to your professional advantage. Rather, at an early age you will have picked one or two that you feel give you the greatest chance for success, working on them night and day until you become, quite simply, the best that you can be. And that's likely to be far better than anyone else! You have a soft-spoken, easygoing manner, but strong passions do bubble beneath the surface. When you are angered or offended, you can surprise everyone by exploding with remarkable force.
You like that which is modern, and you appreciate living in the modern world, but there is something very old-fashioned about you, your likes and your interests. You are drawn to subjects that echo times past, and you will never forget your heritage or origins -- personally or professionally. Your ties to the past will be lifelong.
Also born on this date are: Kirsten Dunst, actress; Cloris Leachman, actress; Eve Arden, actress; Gary Collins, actor; Jill Clayburgh, actress; Jane Campion, filmmaker; Burt Young, actor; Carl Friedrich Gauss, mathematician and physicist; Isiah Thomas, basketball player; Larry Niven, author; Bill Plympton, animator; Lars von Trier, filmmaker; Johnny Galecki, actor; Kunal Nayyar, actor; Gal Gadot, actress; Al Lewis, actor; Alice B. Toklas, writer.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
MONDAY, MAY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There's no point in keeping the truth from someone who knows you well. After all, he or she isn't keeping any secrets from you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Something you've been working on by yourself will begin to yield results. Before the day is out, you'll want to share with those around you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Listen to what your mind and body are telling you! Certain signals point to something that you cannot deal with on your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This may be a very good day to ask the tough questions, though you know full well that you're not likely to get satisfactory answers -- yet.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A problem will arise, demanding that you make something of a sacrifice in order to improve someone else's chance of success.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can work very quickly in the morning hours, which is beneficial since you can expect a slowdown to be imposed upon you later in the day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're in no mood for arguments, but that is just what you'll get if you insist on following your current, dangerous course.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be tempted to speed things along, but a slower pace is advised. Give others a chance to see what you are doing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may think that you and your efforts are not being received well, but the truth is that you're underestimating your own reputation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you say and how you say it will matter more than anything you do on your own, so you needn't bite off more than you can chew.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're wishing things were the way they used to be, but you know that you are far more capable now than you were back then.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It may be time to reach out to an old flame to see what still exists between you. Perhaps you can rekindle something before the day is out!
