Born today, you are not at all concerned about the image you project or the opinions others may form about you. You are independent to a fault, believing that anything others may think about you is more a reflection of them than it is of you. You therefore walk through life free of the burden of satisfying any notions or expectations that the world around you may have. This is a tremendous source of strength and freedom, and you are able to do what you do without wondering for a moment if it is right or proper. You feel compelled to engage in activities that are good for the world at large; these provide you with personal contentment and professional satisfaction. Just as you are deaf to critics, you are likely to reserve judgment of others.
You do not let your emotions dictate your actions, yet your emotions often fuel the work that you do, charging it with a certain drive and energy that you would otherwise not be able to muster. You know how to balance practicality and idealism better than most. To you, the way things are and the way they should be are always in flux.
Also born on this date are: Bob Dylan, singer-songwriter; Patti LaBelle, singer; Queen Victoria of Great Britain; Tommy Chong, actor and comedian; John C. Reilly, actor; Priscilla Presley, actress; Rosanne Cash, singer; Gary Burghoff, actor; Heavy D, rapper; Jim Broadbent, actor; Alfred Molina, actor; Eric Close, actor; Kristin Scott Thomas, actress; H.B. Reese, candymaker.

THURSDAY, MAY 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Though you will surely take sole responsibility for your actions, you may want to let others know what you're planning ahead of time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may end up being punished by someone who won't let bygones be bygones. You can find a way to turn this to your advantage.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel as though you've been backed into a corner, but there is a way out that you haven't found yet. Keep looking!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have grown tired of the same old thing, but you cannot get away from it until you do something that you don't want to do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are more able than most to see the silver lining in the cloud hovering above you, but that doesn't mean you know how to reveal it to others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be grasping at straws throughout much of the day. One of them is bound to pay off eventually -- though not as you may expect.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Things are changing quickly all around you, and you must be ready to make a decision just as quickly when the time comes.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The more you do for others, the more you will be doing for yourself -- and it surely doesn't work the other way around.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may only see a fragment of what stretches out before you, but this will give you a good idea of what to do when given the chance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're in no mood for crowds. Rather than face what you know will rub you the wrong way, why not invite a loved one on a secret outing?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good time for examining your motives more closely. You can discover something about yourself that will get you fired up.
