Born today, you enjoy living life on the edge, and experiencing that which others who are more sensible regularly pass up. You are never afraid of where an unfamiliar path will take you, as you always keep your eyes and ears open and remain alert and receptive to danger of any kind. There is little that you are not able to handle, especially when it comes to your professional affairs. In your personal life, you may be somewhat more tentative at times -- but that is primarily because you cringe at the thought of hurting anyone in your life. You will work hard to ensure that happiness is always within reach -- for you and your circle of loved ones.
You have just enough realism and practical awareness to know when you have crossed a line and are attempting to do that which is simply impossible -- whether in your work or in your personal relationships. You believe that forward motion can keep things from going wrong, and that errors are best corrected sooner rather than later.
Also born on this date are: Bono, singer; Missy Franklin, Olympian; Fred Astaire, actor, dancer, singer; Sid Vicious, musician; Kenan Thompson, actor; Pat Summerall, sportscaster; Chris Berman, sportscaster; Nancy Walker, actress; Gary Owens, TV personality; Donovan, singer.
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 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are putting so much creative energy into one single endeavor, perhaps, that you are unable to give others the time they really deserve.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your resistance is not likely to win the results you had hoped for today, so why not join in the fun? What do you have to lose, really?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have a run-in today with someone in charge. State your case as clearly as you can, and don't let yourself be sold a bill of goods.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A certain problem can only be solved today via direct means; any attempt to circumvent it will only make matters worse. Someone learns from you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're nearing a significant halfway point -- and today the decisions you make are likely to impact your progress for quite some time to come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself in a situation that demands of you more circumspection than usual. You don't want to say something you'll regret!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have access to information that can make the difference between success and failure today -- depending on how you use it, of course.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel that things are going downhill in some way, but you can do much to keep any permanent decline from happening.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You don't know whether what you have to say will cause satisfaction or discontent if you actually say it. You may want to hold your tongue.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Hesitation today isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it depends on the reasons for it. You may have to do some soul-searching.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are at that point in a certain endeavor at which it may be best to hand over the reins to someone else for a while. Try to be objective!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be called upon to lend a hand today; do so without complaint, as you'll likely find that you are able to make a difference.
