Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous drive, copious talent and the will to succeed, even in the face of considerable hardship. In this way, indeed, you are the "classic" Taurus native, but you also combine with your bullish determination a sensitivity that might confuse those who do not know you well. Yes, you can come off as strong-willed, uncompromising and quite forceful, but there is another side of you that is quite different -- and only those whom you choose to be a part of your most intimate inner circle are truly acquainted with this side of you.
Also born on this date are: Jack Nicholson, actor; Marshawn Lynch, football player; Amber Heard, actress; Peter Frampton, singer and musician; Glen Campbell, singer and songwriter; Jeffrey Dean Morgan, actor; Cassidy Freeman, actress.
Highly creative, you have a tendency to act impulsively when you hit upon a good idea, and you are as flexible in your manner and attitudes as you must be to navigate almost any new or unexpected situation that may arise.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've risen quickly, and today you're sure to enjoy the view from on high. The choice is yours: Do you want to abandon this perch?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- One mystery is solved today just as another is brought to your attention. You know much, and can keep speculation from getting out of control.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Recounting an experience with a friend has you wondering if it isn't time to try it once more. What would you gain by doing it over again?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Things are likely to speed up today -- but not in a consistent fashion. You must be ready to navigate a swiftly changing landscape as well.
