Born today, you are likely to be something of a model citizen, the kind of person others want to be, the kind they look up to and admire, the kind who solves problems rather than making them -- and, overall, the kind who smooths the way for others rather than throwing up obstacles in front of them every step of the way. You have a strong, charismatic personality of the type that attracts attention wherever you go. In your youth, this may have been rather bothersome, as you would have preferred not to be watched as you struggled with youthful missteps and errors. But later in life, you will have learned to work with the attention you get, so that being in the spotlight can actually be something you enjoy as well as exploit.
You tend to be rather private when it comes to your personal affairs. You don't like people speculating about your love life -- or any other details of your life that are, in your view, nobody's business. Still, you must get used to such things, for you do fascinate people and will almost always be talked about!

WEDNESDAY, MAY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others may be expecting you to follow the rules -- and why wouldn't they? What you have in mind, however, is something much more fun!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Working in sync with others may be rather difficult, not because of anything technical, but because of differences in temperament.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep your ear to the ground and be ready to swing into action when you get word of what is developing just outside your door.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to hear from someone who is far from home. You must not worry if messages come to you more slowly than expected.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can inspire others with actions more than words and be sure that they will watch what you are doing at all times.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- While working on one problem, you're likely to discover two or three more that are separate but related. Address them one by one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It may be time for you to bring together some of your favorites in order to make a certain dream come true. They know what they're in for!
