Born today, you are one of the most stable and reliable individuals born under your sign. You are often the rock that others lean on during the worst of times. What is most remarkable, however, is that you may not know this about yourself, failing to recognize that you are the source of strength and confidence for so many others with whom you interact in your daily life. You are the kind of person without whom others could not function! You are so important to them, in so many ways, that their lives would be very different were you not a part of them. Equally noteworthy is the fact that you derive the same kind of strength and inspiration from others, but you are far more aware of this than of your effect on them.
You don't usually adopt a plan of action that demands aggressive steps or bold, uncommon decision-making. Rather, you prefer to do things in a more thoughtful, careful manner -- one that may not even be noticed for the longest time, until it finally succeeds just as you had expected it would, perhaps to the surprise of everyone but you.
Also born on this date are: Cher, singer and actress; Busta Rhymes, rapper; James Stewart, actor; Joe Cocker, singer; Tony Goldwyn, actor; Timothy Olyphant, actor; Mindy Cohn, actress; George Gobel, comedian; Ted Allen, television host; Ron Reagan, journalist; Matt Czuchry, actor; Jack Gleeson, actor; Tony Stewart, auto racer; Dolley Madison, U.S. first lady; David Wells, baseball player; Anthony Zerbe, actor.

SUNDAY, MAY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're waiting on news from another before wrapping up a current project. What he or she offers may change the thrust of your efforts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not understand why a rift has developed between you and an old friend, but you must respect his or her desires -- up to a point.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble wrapping your head around a concept floated by someone eager to see the pace quicken. Urge caution!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A partner or co-worker will make a suggestion that you may object to immediately -- but later, after some thought, you may change your mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't confuse mere suggestions with instructions that must be followed. Trust your instincts and do what you think is best.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to present things in such a way that your ideas and intentions are either misunderstood or misinterpreted. Simplicity is key.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will begin a new phase without even knowing it; very little will change just yet. Soon, though, you'll feel compelled to try new things.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have to find a way to combine the personal with the professional, or neither is going to get the attention it deserves.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Take the time to consider all options carefully and seriously. Nothing will be presented that you can dismiss outright.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll find yourself seeking the advice of someone who, in the past, has challenged you in many important ways.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are able to see more than one side of an issue, and your opinions are likely to be sought by those wanting a broader perspective.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know what must be done, but you're going to have trouble getting started in that direction. You are aware of much that holds you back.
