Born today, you are likely to see your life, when all is said and done, as two very distinct phases separated by a moment of dramatic change that is both internal and external. In a very real sense, this event transformed you from one kind of person into another. It is not the case that either of these versions of you is better than the other; rather, the significance is in what you make of each -- and what you contribute to the world as a result. Looking back on your life, you are almost certain to find more value in the later chapter -- but there are some who will surely differ, finding the greater glory in what went before. Will there ever be any consensus on this issue? It is doubtful -- we're talking about human beings, after all! In any event, both the early and the recent you are quite colorful, vibrant and memorable.
One constant in your life is the one or two close friendships that you are careful to maintain through the years, regardless of any personal transformations you may go through. You will rely on these special individuals, and they upon you, through thick and thin, and no other relationship is likely to be more important to you.
Also born on this date are: Mike Myers, actor; Sir Ian McKellen, actor; Frank Oz, voice actor and filmmaker; Anne Heche, actress; Cillian Murphy, actor; Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet and philosopher; Dixie Carter, actress; Leslie Uggams, actress; Karen Valentine, actress; Connie Sellecca, actress; Claude Akins, actor; Robert Ludlum, 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.
FRIDAY, MAY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to finish a task before someone comes to you asking a favor. Once they do, you'll have no time for yourself for a while.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can get a great deal done quite early, but if you don't, you can rearrange your priorities and do things in a different order.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your desires may collide with those of a friend or loved one. The result will be a conflict that a third party will have to resolve.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not see exactly where a certain developing situation is likely to lead, but you know it's not somewhere you should be going!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be disappointed by what happens early on, but later you should be able to reverse things and win the day for yourself and others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been asked to do a favor that you may not feel good about, but you cannot determine whether your objection is purely a moral one.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to pay off a certain non-monetary debt before the day is out so that it will no longer be hanging over you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know better than anyone how to get from here to there -- but what may prove difficult is the timing. When should you start?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll have the chance to avoid a tricky situation. Even if you do not, you can surely resolve it before too long.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An older, time-honored method is likely to work much better than any new-fangled tactic. Put your trust in what you know!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Even if someone doesn't do something the way you do, the two of you can still enjoy some downtime together. Try it!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A loved one will come to you with a proposal that may have you thinking things are taking a rather dramatic turn. Indeed, they may be!
