Born today, you are one of those rare individuals who can do great things without seeming to be great yourself at all -- and that's just the way you like it. You don't want to be the sort of person who attracts all kinds of attention, and fame is something that does not interest you at all. Still, you may not be able to avoid it, for once people know what you've done and what you're capable of, they're sure to pay attention -- and even seek you out to do more and more and more. You will always cherish your privacy, and you must do all you can to ensure that you have somewhere to go to escape the hustle and bustle of a life in the spotlight.
Once you find your professional niche, it's off to the races you go! You're not likely to look back very often on the road to success, because you will always be immersed in the nuts and bolts of what you are doing at the moment. You are never enthralled by your own performance. You look at yourself realistically, as do most Taurus natives.
Also born on this date are: Tim McGraw, singer; Judy Collins, singer; Ray Parker Jr., singer; Glenn Ford, actor; Joanna Lumley, actress; Kate Smith, singer; Rita Coolidge, singer; Dann Florek, actor; Jack Paar, TV host.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must take care that you don't collide with someone who is working against you at this time. Keep your eyes open, and be ready to maneuver.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may stumble upon a bargain today, but can you really take advantage of it? You may have to decline for now and hope for a second chance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are eager to demonstrate your prowess at home, but something at work keeps you distracted and unable to do so -- for now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can do much in support of those who are in a less advantageous position than you are. What happens late in the day may change things.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you discover today is likely to prove your assertion that facts and the truth, while closely related, are certainly not the same thing.
