Born today, you have what it takes to be a memorable lover, but that is not really what is most important to you. You are interested in being a strong, faithful spouse to someone who inspires you, loves you, protects you -- and allows you to do the same in return. Indeed, true love is perhaps the be-all and the end-all for you; it is likely to be the single most important influence over you through the years, something that you simply cannot set aside, no matter what your options may be. The search for that perfect mate is one that will take you to many places, but you must keep in mind the distinct possibility that he or she is someone you already met relatively early in life. The search, then, is not for someone new; rather, you will be trying to get back to someone you have known for quite some time!
Also born on this date are: Bob Saget, actor and comedian; Craig Ferguson, comedian and television host; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer; Kandi Burruss, singer and television personality; Matt Cassel, football player; Carlos Pena, baseball player; Enya, singer; Bill Paxton, actor; Dennis Hopper, actor and director; Derek Hough, dancer; Trent Reznor, singer and musician.
You are clearly not as logical or scientific in your thinking as some, but you can wrap your head around difficult concepts and understand many things that seem to elude others. You love exploring the inner workings of people and things, but you enjoy putting things together far more than taking them apart.
THURSDAY, MAY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- That which seems most straightforward may actually be anything but -- and you'll have to work hard to understand what's really going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The only thing you have to fear is fear itself -- but one in particular may prove quite formidable. You know where it comes from.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't want to go through something all over again, so you'd better prepare to take the necessary steps to avoid it -- right away!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're working hard to climb out of an emotional rut, but something is hovering over you that is hard to shake off. Examine the causes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others are looking to you for answers, but you will have to take the questions elsewhere before you can be armed with up-to-date information.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can spread a little joy and give others a much-needed boost. You may later encounter someone who is resistant to your charms.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- When someone says no to you, you'll surely want to know why. You may get an immediate answer, but it could pay to dig deeper.
