Born today, you know how to make the best of most situations, but there may be one or two that are simply too much for you because they force you to face certain aspects of yourself that you would, quite honestly, rather overlook entirely. You are a firm believer in the value of self-knowledge, but that only makes you more committed to ignoring those parts of yourself that you wish were different. Still, when you are not being forced to look at the unwanted parts of yourself, you can be quite successful, as you have a knack for blocking out the kind of noise that proves to be such a distraction to most individuals. It is this ability to focus that will surely give you the advantage more often than not.
Rivals who are different never threaten you; rather, you find those with whom you have the most in common to be dangerous and threatening. This says more about you, of course, than about them. If you look at these people objectively, without seeing in them a reflection of yourself, you can meet any challenge they may mount and win the day.
Also born on this date are: Megan Fox, actress; Janet Jackson, singer; Pierce Brosnan, actor; Tori Spelling, actress; Liberace, musician and entertainer; Henry Fonda, actor; Adam Richman, actor and TV host; Danny Trejo, actor.
FRIDAY, MAY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have nothing against anyone whose opinions differ from your own, and yet you may have to take a stand that seems more aggressive than usual.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are being pulled in at least two directions at the same time, and your usual tactics aren't likely to be immediately effective.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A few difficult decisions remain to be made today, even after you've hit on the best course of action for you and your teammates.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You want to assume a position of authority at some point, but today you may have to follow orders in order to begin your climb to the top.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be creative as you consider your options today. Don't settle for a solution that relies on the past; you can move into the future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Others are likely to get caught up in a conflict that you figured out long ago. Perhaps it would be best if you shared your views today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Any move you make is sure to be noticed today, especially if it is one that defies expectation. You may want to lie low at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You have much to share with friends and loved ones at this time. You'll have to prioritize, however, before making any firm decisions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know what's most important to you and those around you today, and it may differ dramatically from the official view.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can prevent someone from getting into hot water today, but you may also create a problem for yourself that demands attention.
