Born today, you are a warm, positive and generally kind individual -- one who, by all accounts, is the sort that others can look up to, and so they do! You are not one to fly off the handle, and you do not share your opinions without being invited to do so, and even then you try to be quite careful not to ruffle feathers or turn anyone off by being too blunt. You are always concerned for the well-being of others, especially when feelings come into play. You will try to avoid doing or saying anything that could cause emotional injury to another. You can be rather formal in social settings, and you focus a bit too much at times on what is appropriate. You can have a great deal of fun, but you're not one to cut loose often.
Once you warm to someone, you are likely to remain close indefinitely. There is little a good friend can possibly do to cause you to go your own way alone; you value friendship so much that you are likely to make many sacrifices for those who are closest to you throughout your lifetime.
Also born on this date are: Naomi Campbell, model; Ginnifer Goodwin, actress; Apolo Ohno, Olympic speed skater; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author and creator of Sherlock Holmes; Harvey Milk, politician and civil rights leader; Richard Wagner, composer.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, MAY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are compelled to do something you've been warned against doing and that you know you shouldn't do but you don't really know why.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can give someone precisely what is needed at this time without making any significant sacrifice yourself. Evening brings a surprise.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have a real go-getter attitude at this time, but you don't know all you need to know to make any real plans. This can be remedied.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not fully understand what someone else is trying to tell you, but you run little risk of doing anything wrong as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself in the middle of something that hasn't been fully explained to you -- yet. By day's end you'll know all you need to know.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are stuck between two conflicting alliances at this time. Today it may be best to say that you can't commit one way or the other.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are expecting a judgment of some sort to be handed down today. Prepare for any eventuality and you can make the best of any result.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may think that those in charge are in complete agreement with you about a certain issue, but you're overlooking an inconvenient fact.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself struggling with the darker forces that lurk deep within your psyche today. A friend helps you stay balanced.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- That which makes little difference to you makes a very big difference to someone else, so why not just let things go his or her way?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will want to keep complicated communications to a minimum today. Focus on messages that simply must be delivered at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Adjustments at home may require you to make adjustments at work, but not everyone will see things the way you do. Be ready to go it alone.
