Born today, you are keen to know what's waiting for you around the corner, but you know better than to rush things, for by being hasty you may actually threaten the very progress that you so long for. You want to be the first to reach your destination, surely, but you know that to rush things is to endanger yourself and others. You must always keep firmly in mind the reasons why you are doing something -- or, sometimes more importantly, the reasons why you are not doing something else. You are a fine speaker, and it would behoove you to learn to listen as often and as well as you talk.
Your emotions are often near the surface, but that can actually work in your favor. If people get used to you reacting emotionally to this, that and the other thing, then they may never come to know just what it is that is most important to you -- and in some situations, that can give you a distinct advantage over competitive rivals.
Also born on this date are: Malcolm X, civil rights leader; Andre the Giant, wrestler and actor; Grace Jones, singer; Pete Townshend, musician; Joey Ramone, singer; Peter Mayhew, actor; Ho Chi Minh, North Vietnamese leader; Nora Ephron, screenwriter and director; James Fox, actor.
MONDAY, MAY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can complete an important task ahead of schedule today. This leaves you plenty of time to deal with an important personal issue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can raise the level of debate among friends and co-workers today, particularly where primary ideas and proposed changes are concerned.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You know what is expected of you, but you are eager to branch out in a different direction. That may have to wait a day or two at least.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are likely to hear from someone who imparts information that proves essential to the success you are after today. You can move forward.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be willing to give way when someone better than you comes along. Who does the job is not important, it's the fact that it gets done.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't try to muscle things into shape today, but rather you will get far better results by letting them develop organically.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't make any decisions today that you cannot alter if and when circumstances change. Nothing is permanent at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want to be in the lead all day long; let someone else move ahead and show everyone where to go -- and how to get there. Relax a bit!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can score a big success today after taking a risk and simply making things up as you go along. Not everything has to be planned out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can push yourself further today than you had ever expected, and someone else is sure to be impressed -- and offer you a job, perhaps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to do what you know how to do, but today you may be held back by circumstances that require you to do what is necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Whether or not you like it, you're going to have to face certain issues that are raised by someone who doesn't yet know you all that well.
