Born today, you are one of the most realistic individuals born under your sign, and this allows you to keep your reactions to the world around you to a minimum and focus instead on what you are doing rather than what is happening to you. This is an important distinction, for you would much rather be the kind of person who is proactive than one who is reactive. You are likely to be the envy of many, especially those who find themselves buffeted about by the winds of change on far too frequent a basis.
You are quick to say "yes" to all kinds of suggestions, ideas, proposals and propositions, for you are rarely if ever afraid of the possible outcome, and you are always eager to try something new. Indeed, it is in new or uncertain situations that your ability to stay calm yet responsive truly comes in handy. You know how to work with the unknown or unfamiliar with tremendous ease.
Also born on this date are: Bob Saget, actor and comedian; Craig Ferguson, comedian and TV host; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer; Carlos Pena, baseball player; Enya, singer; Bill Paxton, actor; Dennis Hopper, actor and director.

SATURDAY, MAY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Just when you thought you were coming to the end of something that has kept you quite busy, something else pops up and demands attention today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Surprises come to you very quickly today, and you must be ready to navigate some unstable situations that result. A friend stays near.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You know just what must be done today given the circumstances, but you'll have to convince someone in charge. Tell it like it is.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You aren't able to lend hands-on assistance to someone in need, but your enthusiasm and encouragement can do much to keep spirits high.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you have to offer today may not be highly prized by those who are most in need of it, at least not yet. Be patient; your turn will come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You must pay attention to all that is happening around you today. Try to maintain 360-degree awareness of your surroundings.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Travel is in the picture, but you may not know just yet where you're going to have to go -- or when you have to be there. Info is on its way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can expect to receive important news today, but it will be useful to you only if you have prepared for its arrival and for what it means.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your situation may prevent you from doing something with friends that has been a tradition in the past. Get in touch from afar.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can do much more today than you had planned, as long as you pay attention to the signs and signals your mind and body send you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself immersed in a situation that brings many unexpected emotions to the surface. Someone close comes to your aid.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will almost certainly find it easier to do something the old way today than to learn how to do it with more modern tools and techniques.
