Born today, you can be somewhat imposing, especially when you are surrounded by people you do not know. This is no doubt something you have cultivated, and which stems from a native fear of being overlooked or underappreciated, and it enables you to counter any doubts you may have by coming on strong in situations that are new or unfamiliar. Those who do not understand this, however, may simply think you are being overbearing or arrogant. However, those who take the time to get to know you will come to understand just what makes you tick. You are fond of friends and family, but you always feel somewhat aloof, as if you have little in common even with those to whom you are closest; your best friends will remind you just how much you truly belong.
You will never do anything to tarnish your reputation or, more importantly perhaps, the reputation of another. You will always strive to do the right thing and behave in an upstanding, honorable way -- and you will always be accountable for your actions. If doing something may attract the wrong kind of attention, you will not do it.
Also born on this date are: Harry S. Truman, U.S. president; David Attenborough, TV host; Don Rickles, comedian and actor; Rick Nelson, singer; Toni Tennille, singer; Sonny Liston, boxer; Ronnie Lott, football player; Bill Cowher, football coach and commentator; David Keith, actor; Peter Benchley, novelist.

THURSDAY, MAY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You should be able to do more than you are assigned today, but much depends on how well you manage the clock and other key resources.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- In reviewing something you've known very well for quite some time, you're likely to discover an element of it that's new to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are eager to have your questions answered, surely, but you recognize that not everyone is equipped with the information you really need.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your surroundings will be speaking to you today, and you would do well to listen. The messages you receive steer you in a new direction.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are likely to do some traveling before the day is out; you must take care that all preparations are complete before the journey begins.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be confused by much that is going on all around you today, but that is only because you haven't yet recognized an overall cause.
