Born today, you are not always the most sympathetic or empathetic individual born under your sign; when someone is hurting for any reason, you are far less likely to come to his or her aid than you are to say, "Get over it!" This is the result of your desire to seem tough and invulnerable, combined with your fear that others will discover that you are not what you seem to be. Of course, the more you worry about how you appear to others, the less you can do for them. It's always best for you to behave in a genuine manner, avoiding deception, for you are a terrible liar and are likely to be tripped up easily when challenged or caught in a falsehood.
You are driven to achieve many things in your lifetime, and some may leave others wondering what value there is in them -- but there is value to you in reaching your goals. Your desire to appear untouched by criticism is a driving force in your life.
Also born on this date are: Adele, singer; Ann B.

SUNDAY, MAY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- No one wants what you want -- and yet it may be difficult for you to get your hands on it. Is availability the issue, or is it something else?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are moving in a new direction, even if you aren't aware of it yet or know precisely where it may lead. Your instincts are keen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What another does before you, you can do even better when your turn comes. This pattern continues for a while; you'll come out on top.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may hear news through the grapevine that, fortunately, is proved to be nothing but rumor later on. You don't have to change a thing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which has been already planned can proceed without delay; that which requires further planning may have to wait awhile to get started.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You certainly don't want to repeat yourself today, but it may be necessary to borrow from your bag of tricks to see something through.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have the chance to explore unknown territory today. Take care that you don't expose yourself to a risk you cannot see ahead of time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be challenged to do something that requires you to overcome a basic, deep-seated fear. Get a running start if you can!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Slow and steady may not win you any races, but it will certainly allow you to pass through a danger zone relatively unscathed.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you accomplish with a partner today could never have been done solo, and you know it. Express your gratitude openly and honestly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You receive information from afar that may be suspicious at first -- until further investigation proves to you that it is indeed accurate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You shouldn't have to do more than you have scheduled today -- unless, of course, you sense that additional labor can increase your returns.
