Born today, you are always one to look out over the horizon and see potential in even the most threatening sky. When clouds build and the heavens turn dark, you can be counted on to see the silver lining. While you are quite idealistic, you recognize that it is realism that gets things done, and while inspiration may get one started, it is perspiration that ensures he or she will make it to the finish line. Indeed, the harder the job, the harder you work -- and the more, ultimately, you enjoy yourself!
You are likely to carry throughout your life certain aspects of your childhood self -- and no one can tear them away from you! Indeed, you believe wholeheartedly that to be truly healthy, one must be both adult and child -- and that anyone who abandons the child within is making a grave error.
Also born on this date are: Harry S. Truman, U.S. president; David Attenborough, TV host; Don Rickles, comedian and actor; Rick Nelson, singer; Toni Tennille, singer; Sonny Liston, boxer; Ronnie Lott, football player; Bill Cowher, football coach and commentator; David Keith, actor; Peter Benchley, novelist.
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.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your closest rivals aren't likely to close the gap today, and you'll enjoy a rather long period in which your every move is right on the money.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to revisit a past activity that left you rather cold the first time. Today, you're likely to be far more enthusiastic.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to keep your ear to the ground today; the farther away a source of news is from you, the more important that news is likely to be.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you do today you must be ready to do again tomorrow -- and perhaps the next day. This kind of repetition can ensure you get a thing right.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be asked about something that you simply don't want to talk about -- but such a refusal can only work against you in the end.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What happens today is likely to be merely the prologue to something much more complex and immersive. Are you ready to dig in?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be ready to repeat yourself in order to make your message clear. Take care, however, that you don't overstay your welcome!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Focus on that which brings you the greatest pleasure, and you can have it now rather than later. Can you see past a current obstacle?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will want to share how you feel with someone who has been in your shoes before. You may learn that nothing is out of the ordinary.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more you think about entertaining those around you, the more likely you will be to have a profound and memorable impact as well.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will be most content today working on a creative project entirely yourself. Don't lose touch with the outside world, however!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are after tangible rewards, but today you may have to slow things down in order to explain your methods and motives to a superior.
