Born today, you can be rather formal, even in informal situations, and this is born of a desire not to offend anyone for any reason. Thus, you follow the rules and behave in an upstanding manner that you have been careful to cultivate throughout your lifetime. Indeed, "mannered" perfectly describes your entire demeanor, especially when you are in professional situations or thrust into an environment in which you know few people. You have a certain admirable style, and you dress well. You may actually spend too much on clothing. It's likely you will go through at least one phase in your life in which shoes prove to be an irresistible attraction. You can mix and mingle with all types, and your ability to make others feel comfortable -- even when you are not -- is remarkable.
You can be quite taken aback by another's rude behavior, so much so that you may actually cut off all interaction with the person until you are confident that he or she has recognized and corrected the error. You can be somewhat stubborn.
Also born on this date are: Cam Newton, football player; Salvador Dali, artist; Natasha Richardson, actress; Martha Quinn, TV personality; Phil Silvers, actor and comedian; Frances Fisher, actress; Laetitia Casta, model.

SUNDAY, MAY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are in no mood to let others run roughshod over you, but are you equipped to deal with such a threat when it comes? Don't you dare yield.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can make your way down a difficult road today. Focus on taking things one at a time, and don't assume that those around you know anything.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot pull a rabbit out of your hat, perhaps, but you can certainly do something that those around you neither expect nor believe at first.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to work harder than usual today to convince someone you are in the right. A past encounter provides the very clue you need.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know just what you are feeling and why, but that doesn't mean you'll do the right thing about it today. That is still up in the air.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Self-knowledge is a truly wonderful thing, but it's not the only thing. Today you must be willing to rely on someone else's strengths.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now is the time for you to put certain aspects of a very tricky plan into motion -- very carefully. One mistake can mean disaster of sorts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are ready to try something you've never done. You know it can be done, however, because the numbers all make sense.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You want to spend time with a certain someone who wants to spend time with you. Today you can surely make this happen -- in an unusual way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may score what seems to be a major bargain today -- but beware. It's likely that you will have to pay up at some point, sooner or later.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot necessarily rely on what someone else tells you today, especially if it's relayed in the heat of battle. Investigate further.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone who excited you in the past may well do something very similar to you today, but your reaction is likely to be very different.
