Born today, you are always the one others can count on to put your best foot forward in virtually any situation, for you simply don't know how to slack off or do less than is required of you -- at work, at play, in social situations, in times of fun or trouble. Indeed, you are perhaps at your best when things are not going precisely your way, for your sixth sense kicks in and enables you to anticipate developments in such a way that you all but eliminate the negative while bringing the positive to the fore. You are adept at maneuvering and negotiating; you don't have to have everything just so, which means you can latch onto a compromise when you spy one. You will work tirelessly to see not only that you come out ahead, but that those across the table from you do as well.
You don't always will yourself into the most important situations in your life. Rather, you sometimes find yourself stumbling into things, not quite reluctantly, but surely without great enthusiasm. It's when your enthusiasm builds that you really begin to shine -- and your deep-seated passions are awakened.
Also born on this date are: Naomi Campbell, model; Katie Price, model; Ginnifer Goodwin, actress; Apolo Ohno, Olympic speed skater; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author; Harvey Milk, politician and civil rights leader; Richard Wagner, composer; Sir Laurence Olivier, actor and filmmaker; Johnny Gill, singer; Bernie Taupin, lyricist; Mary Cassatt, artist; Paul Winfield, actor; Richard Benjamin, actor; Michael Constantine, actor.

TUESDAY, MAY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Breaking events will give you reason to think that not all has been going as planned over the past several days -- or even weeks. Look closely!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It may be time for you to sever ties with someone who is on a completely different wavelength. This could be only a business adjustment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone you trust has a good deal to say about a current piece of work. Just remember it's not finished until everyone agrees it is.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to disqualify yourself from something you were looking forward to, because you forgot to take one small official step.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Friends and relatives are all concerned about the same sudden event. You can put them at ease by demonstrating your comfort with new circumstances.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be working more slowly than usual, but there's nothing wrong with going back and checking that no errors have been made.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will have a hard time concealing your mood from those who know you. Fortunately, they understand the cause this time around.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to wait longer than usual for a message telling you that the coast is clear. Once it's in your hand, get moving!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Issues of strategy and tactics will vie for your attention. You must be willing to consider an option that no one else has.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may want help, but you don't need it -- and that's significant. You're able to stand on your own two feet as never before.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something will happen that requires a response from you as soon as possible -- but be sure your response is proportional, by all means!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can do someone a favor by steering clear of his or her business. You will be invited back into the fold soon enough.
