Born today, you are a lively and curious individual who was always getting into scrapes as a youth and fascinating personal and professional situations as an adult. You enjoy physical activity, so long as you are having fun, but you don't enjoy manual labor for its own sake. You want to know that you are contributing something important that no one else could provide when you are engaged in any kind of physical work. You would much prefer to apply your considerable brainpower to a project than expend any amount of muscle. However, others are sure to value your contributions, whatever they may be, be they physical or intellectual. You are most often good natured, but you can become rather sour and even pugnacious at times -- and there is often no good reason for this. You simply chalk it up to a phase that you know you'll get over, and you always do.
You are generally healthy and strong of both body and mind, but you can be emotionally vulnerable at times -- and you cannot abide practical jokes. You speak well and know how to say the right thing at the right time. Others know that you can be relied upon to provide encouragement whenever it is needed.
Also born on this date are: Bono, singer; Missy Franklin, Olympian; Fred Astaire, actor, dancer, singer; Sid Vicious, singer; Judith Jamison, dancer and choreographer.
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 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are granted a great deal more inner fortitude today than you had wished for, courtesy of a fortuitous encounter. Get started now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not working entirely alone today, even though you may not see anyone around you engaged in similar activities. You're being supported!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot expect everyone to agree with either your opinions on a certain issue or what you are doing about it. This has to be acceptable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- That which usually gets you over the finish line may be sorely lacking today. You're going to have to find something else that works for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You cannot be held responsible for the way others interpret your very clear signals at this time. Keep doing what you're doing; trust yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll have only so much influence over what goes on today, but that should be enough to give you what you want when you most need it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are eager to have more authority, but now is not the time. Still, you should have the chance to make a few suggestions here and there.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can afford to move in a more aggressive fashion today, especially if you know exactly where you want to be when all is said and done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to cope with certain doubts today even as you engage in activities that are tailor-made to boost your confidence.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may suffer from an emotional setback today that gives you the blues. This will pass, and your hopes and dreams will be revived.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are eager to explore all the options that are laid out before you today -- and one or two that may remain hidden from view for a while.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be able to stomach the kind of criticism that comes your way today, especially since it is the product of conjecture only.
