Born today, you are not one of those who craves the limelight -- though you can acquit yourself well when you find yourself the center of attention. Nor are you the kind to insist on calling the shots, for the responsibility of being in charge is, to you, a stressor that you simply do not need. And you don't want to come up with all the ideas, either, or organize a team, for you feel you are not always up to maintaining the sort of creative steam or discipline that such activities require.
You are eager to see those around you succeed, but you are not willing to sacrifice personal priorities for that success. One of these is, of course, your family; family comes first as far as you are concerned, and nothing will ever get between you and those at home who count on you.
Also born on this date are: Seth Green, actor; James Dean, actor; Gary Coleman, actor; John Williams, composer and conductor; Nick Nolte, actor; Lana Turner, actress; Jack Lemmon, actor; John Grisham, novelist; Audrey Meadows, actress.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You want others to know that you are confident in both your motives and your methods. Someone comes to your aid -- and someone else departs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been making some wild claims lately, perhaps, but today you should be able to do much to demonstrate the truth of what you've said.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do much to help others today -- and to prepare them for what lies ahead. You seem to know better than anyone what the rules really are.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be able to make adjustments exactly as you might wish today, but you can surely make any maneuver pay off if your timing is correct.
