Born today, you are not always what you seem to be. You are a very consistent individual with a steady demeanor and principles that are virtually unassailable. So why is it that so many are deceived by you? The expectations others may have of you are quite different from the reality by which you live, and that paradox makes it very difficult for people to get to know the "real you." When others look at you, they see someone they think they know -- but how can one know you simply by looking at you? You have so much going on inside that were someone to make assumptions about your character, he or she would miss the mark -- and is therefore kept in the dark about you.
While you can certainly use this to your advantage as you climb the ladder of success, it may not be acceptable, and you are sure to attract a good deal of criticism as a result. In your personal affairs, you avoid doing things in a way that takes undue advantage of others.
Also born on this date are: Dule Hill, actor; Bing Crosby, actor and singer; Frankie Valli, singer; Pete Seeger, singer and songwriter; Sugar Ray Robinson, boxer; Christina Hendricks, actress; Golda Meir, Israeli leader; Christopher Cross, singer; Doug Henning, magician; Niccolo Machiavelli, author and political philosopher; Mary Astor, actress.
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 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A difference of opinion must not be allowed to slow or stop the progress you are making at this time. You must be willing to compromise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must not vacillate today; you must be willing to stick to your guns and challenge anyone who would challenge you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A certain task may require a little extra effort, but you are able to give it -- and then some. Indeed, this may prove a banner day for you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- While the insults are flying, you'll want to steer clear. You must not get yourself mixed up in anything so pointless at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not understand someone else's approach, but you can appreciate that he or she is doing what can be done. It's time to join forces, perhaps.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been missing something that, once found, will prove quite important to you. A friend has words for you, and you may be surprised.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You cannot do it all yourself -- nor should you. Today, you must be patient while you allow others to do their jobs as assigned.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good time for you to show someone else how it's done -- and you can do so without seeming to be cocky or fishing for praise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must realize that if you are new on the scene, you're not likely to be given every opportunity; you're going to have to wait your turn.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can try something that you've not tried before, but you mustn't expect to be successful the first time. You must put in some practice!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's never too late to do your best, and today the climate is just right for you and those who wish to join forces with you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must be honest in your assessment of your work right now; any self-deception can only work against you -- now, as always.
