Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous talent, remarkable resilience and the ability to see the future to such an extent that you are able to adjust to coming changes in fortune even before they occur. You were born to succeed, but while others may have determined that you are guaranteed to see your dreams come true, the fact is that you will surely have to work for all the success that comes your way -- and you know it. Just because fortune seems to have smiled on you doesn't mean that you don't have to do your part. Indeed, your part will be significant, for nothing will be handed to you on a silver platter. This only means that you will enjoy your success all the more -- because you will have worked toward it and fought for it every step of the way, with every battle increasing its overall value beyond imagining.
When young, you may have seemed right for any line of work, be it artistic, business-related, educational, scientific or what have you. As you mature, however, it will become clear that you do have a destiny -- a path that you have always been meant to take. Whether you take it or not, of course, is entirely up to you!
Also born on this date are: Andy Murray, tennis player; Emmitt Smith, football player; James Mason, actor; George Brett, baseball player; Eddy Arnold, singer; Brian Eno, musician and record producer; Madeleine Albright, politician; John Smoltz, baseball player; Chazz Palminteri, actor; Joseph Cotten, actor; L. Frank Baum, author.
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.
TUESDAY, MAY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A collaboration may sour for a time because you are not sure just what you are trying to achieve. Be patient -- especially with yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself arguing a point with a self-avowed "expert," but what you have going for you is hard evidence. Keep it up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What seemed like a great strategy only yesterday isn't likely to hold water, so you must be prepared to make some adjustments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care that you don't promise anything you cannot deliver. You'll likely have a large audience, so make every word count.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your personal difficulties stem from an inability to see how you are contributing to an even larger problem. A friend can open your eyes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A friend may ask a favor, but you won't be able to commit until you receive a piece of news from someone outside your inner circle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The difference between fantasy and reality is going to become crystal clear before the day is out. Still, you'll be tempted by the fantasy!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You have somewhere to be, but you also have much to do where you currently are. It may be time to call in some specialized assistance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Take care that you don't react to an empty accusation in such a way that you give your accuser even more reason to come after you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If it's news you want, you'll get it in abundance, but what you do with it is really what counts. You have a few decisions to make.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your style may not be in sync with another's, but that doesn't mean you cannot get something done together. A compromise is in order.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A friend will reach out, but you may not be there -- at least not yet. Certain obstacles keep you from getting to the rendezvous on time.
