Born today, you are one of the strongest individuals born under your sign. You are intelligent, thoughtful and above all independent -- you will do nothing that threatens your autonomy. You behave accordingly in all situations -- at times to a fault! You have been known to sacrifice something quite valuable to you simply because it doesn't allow you to remain independent and aloof; you have ended relationships because you felt you'd "disappeared" in some way within the dynamics at play. Though you do appreciate that, while young, you will have to play secondary roles before landing the leads, as an adult you will never agree to anything that requires you to play second fiddle.
You are a deeply passionate individual, and where your heart goes your head will surely follow. This can be dangerous, of course, for when your head and your heart are not in perfect balance, you can lose that which is most important to you. This is the paradox of your complicated life: The independence you crave can sometimes be threatened by your craving for independence!
Also born on this date are: Audrey Hepburn, actress; Randy Travis, singer; Pia Zadora, entertainer; George Will, author and commentator; Paul Gleason, actor.

SATURDAY, MAY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are likely to be affected by issues surrounding official policies. You don't want to bring career tensions home with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It shouldn't surprise you all that much today when what you see is not quite what you get. Things have been suspicious for a while now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be taken by surprise by someone who works behind the scenes. How you adjust to a certain change speaks to your overall expertise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a rival can come to a tentative agreement today, keeping things from spiraling out of control. Others appreciate your continued efforts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may feel as though you have nothing left to give, but when the chips are down, you'll be able to come through for someone who needs you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The timing of an unexpected demand may not be in line with your overall plans -- but there are adjustments you can make to maximize efficiency.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be expected to go somewhere you cannot get to, or complete something you cannot do. It's certainly a good time to negotiate more actively.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Where others are lacking, you can certainly pick up the slack. Many people are trying to emulate you, but no one equals your resolve.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be unusually emotional today about an issue that usually leaves you cold -- if it prompts any reaction at all. What's different?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A personal realization affects your productivity at the workplace today. You may have a surprise announcement to make toward day's end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Though a replacement may not equal a former partner's abilities, you can certainly forge a lasting bond and increase overall effectiveness.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not see the humor in a situation that someone close to you finds very funny indeed. Is it you, or is something else at play?
