Born today, you are a straightforward, no-nonsense kind of person, one who will always want to hear bad news immediately rather than put it off in favor of any kind of ignorance. And why is that? The simplicity of the truth is startling: You want to know things so you can do something in response -- period. If you don't know a thing, you cannot react, and if you cannot react, you cannot learn to avoid the same kind of thing in the future. You do not believe in failure; you believe in missing the intended target and then assessing your performance so you will hit the bull's-eye the next time -- and the time after that, and so on. You are strong-willed and able to vanquish all manner of foes simply because of your tenacity and patience; you don't have to succeed right away.
You don't like jealousy, envy, avarice or intrigue. You want things always to be on the up-and-up so you can avoid negative situations, focus on the positive and move forward. Progress, to you, is a state of mind more than anything else, and attitude, self-knowledge and patience are a formidable combination.
Also born on this date are: Adele, singer; Karl Marx, political philosopher; Tammy Wynette, singer; Brian Williams, TV host; John Rhys-Davies, actor; Tyrone Power, actor; Pat Carroll, actress; Michael Palin, actor, writer, comedian.

MONDAY, MAY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may be difficult to get others to recognize what you've done; if you do, you can be sure that you'll be rewarded handsomely for your efforts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can get away with something today that no one else can. Does this mean you should try to do so at any other time? Not really.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can prove that you know precisely what you're talking about when you put your words into action and get the results you've promised.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Everyone has a valid point of view, perhaps, but the fact is that there's only one set of facts that you must pay attention to at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are eager to see someone else succeed today, and you can do much to help him or her do what is required, but at some point you must let go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be feeling quite as confident as usual today, probably because you've not kept up with things and don't have the latest info.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've been dreaming of today for quite some time, and what you most want can finally be yours -- for a price, of course.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can tell someone else what he or she needs to hear, or you can tell the truth. The choice is yours, but you can't control the outcome.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone is likely to take the information you impart today and use it in a way that you had not imagined. That success is partly yours.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The best way for you to let others know what you expect from them is to lead by example. That way, there can be little misunderstanding.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You get a message that is difficult to decipher, but once you do so, you may realize everything is about to change for the better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can do more than you had planned on today, and someone who knows you well sets things up in such a way that you can be on top very soon.
