Born today, you are well-liked, hard-working and inspired -- especially when you make yourself available to all manner of opportunities. You are almost always the first to realize just what kind of success waits for you at the end of any given road -- and you are sure to lead others down that path so they can share in the bounty. You are never afraid of that which is difficult, and you will always rise to any occasion by the sheer strength of your will and work on a task until it is completed. There may be those more talented than you, but there are very few who work as hard to succeed.
You are quite adept at expressing yourself, and you never hold back when given the opportunity to share your opinions or change someone's mind. Indeed, you can be far more persuasive than most individuals, and your ability to base arguments on facts and figures rather than mere guesswork and opinion always gives you the edge.
Also born on this date are: Billy Joel, singer and songwriter; Mike Wallace, newsman; Prince Fielder, baseball player; Rosario Dawson, actress; Candice Bergen, actress; Albert Finney, actor; John Brown, abolitionist leader; James L. Brooks, producer; John Corbett, actor; Tony Gwynn, baseball player; J.M. Barrie, writer.
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.
THURSDAY, MAY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to be thoroughly prepared for what comes today -- but in order to do that, you must anticipate with unusual accuracy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Any plans you hatch today have a greater chance of success if put into motion quickly -- if not immediately. Delay can cause lasting problems.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to do what you can to help a friend who finds him- or herself in a difficult personal situation. Use your experience as an example.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be as enthusiastic today about something that, only yesterday, had you quite excited and ready to roll. This will pass.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone is focusing on you for all the wrong reasons, and though you are tempted to say something, the timing is probably not right for doing so.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can greet someone in a way that is both welcoming and a warning -- but only you know why any warning is necessary in the first place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A problem not of your making affects you directly as the day opens -- and you will have to deal with it continually until the day is done.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can't believe that you have to deal with an issue that should never have arisen in the first place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be all that eager to go on a certain journey today -- though you know you will certainly make many valuable discoveries.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can treat yourself to something special today, and still be in the mood for more when a friend wants to share the experience with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are in no hurry today, so take the time to look at things in a new way -- and see in them values you never recognized before.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can guide others toward the achievement of a certain goal today -- but in the end, you may not be able to enjoy their triumphs with them.
