Born today, you keep your feet on the ground even as you let your aspirations soar to the stratosphere. It is likely that, when combined with dedication, education, inspiration and hard work, those aspirations will lead you directly to the threshold of long-term success. You have always known what you wanted to do with your life, though you may not have been aware of the roads you need to travel to get to a viable starting point. However, you trust in luck, and you have a way of soliciting the advice of just the right people who can send you on your way. Some may call you an opportunist, but is that really a criticism? Yes, you take advantage of opportunity when it comes knocking, but you will always remain closely in touch with the real you.
You like having physical things of all kinds. While you may at times feel like your space is overcrowded, the fact is that you will have a tendency to acquire numerous possessions throughout your lifetime. Your natural care and generosity will compel you to share, however, so those in need can always come to you for succor.

SUNDAY, MAY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Granting someone a special favor may land you in hot water for a time, but forgiveness is often easier to get than permission.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll receive very thorough instructions via an unfamiliar and unconventional conduit. You must track down their origin.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What has you so starry-eyed these days? Take care that you don't lose sight of a very real goal because you are dreaming so big!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are not likely to buy into the kinds of schemes that attract others. You understand that only hard work can win the day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A difference of opinion with someone in charge is not over a central issue. It can surely be worked out through compromise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to see whether your plans will come to fruition, but is this really the time to push your own agenda?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll receive a promise that you feel confident you can take to the bank. Toward day's end, what you expected to happen is likely to happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Approaching the day's problems one at a time may seem like the wise choice, but it may not be practical with so much happening at once.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be thinking that everything is fun and games, but in fact there is something serious going on beneath the surface.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot honestly assess what you have recently done if you are not first willing to acknowledge that it may contain some errors.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are able to do more than you had planned, but only because someone else made a change that freed up some of your time.
