Born today, you have a great deal of confidence you display in the most stylish of ways, whether you are enjoying social time with friends or professional interaction with co-workers. You have a way of entering a room that tells everyone already there that things are about to get very interesting indeed -- and you don't disappoint. You are able to influence people simply by being present and involved; you don't have to say much to get your message across, whatever it may be, and you find that you would much rather teach by example than by lecturing others about what they should or shouldn't do. You like to have your way, certainly, but you are able to give way when you must in order to maintain good relations with others.
You are quite attractive to others, and whether or not they would be willing to act upon any feelings they may have for you, they are always wondering what it might be like to be with you. You have the kind of colorful and irresistible personality that pleases the senses and fuels the imagination.
Also born on this date are: Andy Murray, tennis player; Emmitt Smith, football player; James Mason, actor; George Brett, baseball player; Eddy Arnold, country singer; Madeleine Albright, statesman; John Smoltz, baseball player; Chazz Palminteri, actor; Joseph Cotten, actor; L. Frank Baum, author.

THURSDAY, MAY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will have the chance to do something you've long wanted to try, but take care that you don't jump in without considering the cost.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may encounter more difficulties today than expected, due in large part to an error in how you are navigating a certain situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your expectations may be somewhat unrealistic right now and may require some adjustments. It's all right to hope for the best, however.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are going to have to exert some extra pressure on someone who isn't getting with the program as quickly as you had hoped.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll likely have to be direct and efficient in your dealings with a partner today. This should be understood; apologies are not necessary.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're tempted to sit back and wait for others to come to you, but that's not how to get what you want. You must be more aggressive than that.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Time has been on your side as of late, but it's not likely to be that way indefinitely. You'll want to get used to doing things in more of a hurry.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can't expect others to be entirely in sync with you today until you tell them precisely what you are doing and what you expect to gain.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are eager to explore a new opportunity that you suspect will be presented very soon. Have you completed all preparations?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be better off today than you have been in recent days, but you can't simply sit still and expect improvements. Be proactive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are fighting with your instincts today, but you're not sure what the main problem is. Ask a friend for his or her honest appraisal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Money matters come to the fore today, not because you've done anything wrong but because you can do much to avoid a problem in the future.
