Born today, you seem to have your finger on the pulse of humanity; the truth is that you are so instinctive that even the most complex human issues are not all that incomprehensible to you. You balance feeling and thinking better than most others born under your sign. You can be stubborn, but you are most immovable when it comes to things that you believe in strongly. You do not like to see others struggle or suffer in any way; it affects you far more than it does most other people. You are keen on any activity that promises to be a win for yourself and your loved ones.
You are almost certain to enjoy the kind of success that others merely dream about, but it may not last long. Still, you should be able to reap the maximum rewards from even the most short-lived success. However, you're no quitter, and if you like what you do, you will do it as long as you can.
Also born on this date are: George Strait, singer; Tina Fey, actress, writer, producer; Pope John Paul II; Jack Johnson, singer; Reggie Jackson, baseball player; Perry Como, singer and TV host; Chow Yun-fat, actor; Bertrand Russell, author and philosopher; Margot Fonteyn, dancer; Frank Capra, director; Robert Morse, actor; Czar Nicholas II, Russian leader; Meredith Willson, playwright and songwriter.
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.
SATURDAY, MAY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Though a friend claims that you have the magic touch, you're not feeling at all confident today -- though a modicum of success can be yours.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are going through a certain transition at this time, and it may be difficult to make routine decisions. Nothing is urgent just yet.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have every reason to think that you are on the right track; a good friend has news for you that could have a positive or negative effect.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A flight of fancy yields unexpected fruit today as you come up with an idea that could very well make some money -- and your reputation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in no mood to follow the rules today, especially when it comes to mixing and mingling. Still, a current assignment requires schmoozing!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is the time for you to say what you really think, regardless of any possible reaction from those who habitually take a different stance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Things are actually quite stable at this time, even though you may feel precariously balanced between two emotional extremes.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The rhythm and music of your work makes all the difference -- and that only comes from being committed from the inside. Don't pretend!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have a friend who is willing to go to any lengths to see you succeed at this time; you must recognize that this is a rare opportunity!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're not likely to do things in a way that can be discounted as simply routine. Today, all your methods are unusual and challenging.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A get-together with friends yields a surprise, as you come away from it feeling something you rarely ever experience.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to solicit someone else's time and efforts today as you strive to complete a task that you simply cannot do alone.
