Born today, you are so determined, visionary and opinionated that you aren't likely to take criticism or opposition very well. The truth is that you simply believe you are right in almost every situation, and that your side of an argument is the only valid side. This kind of confidence in your own views may help you make your way in the world as a bull makes his way through a china shop -- there are times when a more sensitive approach would yield better results and preserve the kinds of relationships that are, in fact, most important to you. You sometimes tend to put friendships at risk for the sake of an ideological position, so you must remember to ask yourself: What is more ideal than a friend? You will surely learn, as the years pass, how to balance emotional strength with tenderness.
You have a dream -- one that is likely the primary influence on your entire life, both personally and professionally. Whether that dream comes true or not is hardly the point; the mere fact that you will keep it alive, no matter what, says a great deal about you and what is most important to you in life.

THURSDAY, MAY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're eager to see something happen in a way that it hasn't before -- but is your role in it one you'll want to advertise to others?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may actually decide that giving it your all is not something you want to do -- and your reason is likely to be a compelling one.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Avoid any sort of slipshod approach. You must be thorough, detailed and careful as you make your way over difficult terrain.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is the time for you to say yes or no to someone who has been waiting for you to make up your mind. He or she will wait no longer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not fully understand why something has happened, but you'll appreciate the possible long-term effect the event may have.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can make a dream come true, but not entirely on your own. A friend will join you in your efforts -- and that's fine with you!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your attempts to keep the quality high may not be wholly successful -- but not due to ineffective efforts on your part!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your success depends on the willingness of others to go along with you wholeheartedly, without objection. Some will do so.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may feel quite distant from someone who fills a very important place in your life and in your heart. Why not reach out right now?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As you read this, something is happening not far from where you are that will have an impact on you in the days to come. Find it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to travel to distant lands soon, but it's important that you first square everything away right here at home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're in no mood for idle banter; when you do engage in conversation, you want it to be intelligent and substantive.
