Born today, you have a knack for smelling out endeavors that provide you with the greatest potential in both professional and personal affairs. You are confident, even aggressive, and you are never afraid of jumping into a situation that is unfamiliar. Indeed, that which is new attracts you like nothing else -- which, of course, may actually wreak havoc with your romantic partners! You have a great many opinions about the ways of the world, and it would surprise no one were you to pursue a political career of sorts -- though you may not want to go that route for purely personal reasons.
You know how to present yourself with great style, and others are always eager to listen to your ideas, certain that you will offer much that is unique to you. That is true up to a point -- but some may fear that your individuality is only a part of the packaging that you use to promote yourself.
Also born on this date are: Cam Newton, football player; Salvador Dali, artist; Natasha Richardson, actress; Irving Berlin, songwriter; Martha Graham, choreographer and dancer; Foster Brooks, actor; Tim Blake Nelson, actor; Martha Quinn, TV personality; Phil Silvers, actor and comedian; Frances Fisher, actress; Laetitia Casta, model.

SATURDAY, MAY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to hear from someone who doesn't understand the difference between wanting and needing. You can set him or her straight.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can wipe the slate clean today and start all over -- if you want to. Remember, however, that you can learn from a failed effort!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone may be tracking your every move at this time -- but you can do something to thwart those efforts and avoid any real or imagined threat.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to talk yourself into something that doesn't come naturally. Today, even your worst enemy can be something of a friend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A positive attitude allows you to navigate a certain situation far more effectively -- and it may well open several new doors for you as well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Take care that you don't reveal too much of what you are up to before you are ready to do so. Timing makes all the difference today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your actions can certainly speak louder than words today -- but there will be times in which you must use words to impart key information.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may enjoy a second chance today in a situation that requires you to offer only your best in both style and substance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've had enough of something a friend thinks is good for you. The truth is that he or she is right, but that won't change your mind!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone may be keeping you in the dark about something that actually affects you directly at this time. You need to be filled in -- now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A slow start mustn't be allowed to diminish your enthusiasm for what you are trying to do. This is an opportunity to get things exactly right!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A Capricorn or Aquarius native plays an unusual role today, and you may have to change your thinking to accommodate his or her needs.
