Born today, you have been endowed with many talents, though your greatest single trait is likely to be your ability to communicate effectively with others. Indeed, you are never at a loss for words, whether speaking with those around you or writing down your thoughts for people to study at a later date. You know how to present ideas clearly and effectively -- and others will surely look to you for guidance when it comes to promoting their ideas, notions and beliefs. This can be problematic, however, because you tend to be rather solitary in your habits.
You may never find yourself in the spotlight, but you know how to promote others -- and this is directly related to your communication skills. While you may never choose to promote yourself, as doing so would perhaps expose you too much to the world at large, you can and do promote others.
Also born on this date are: Tim McGraw, singer; Judy Collins, singer; Ray Parker Jr., singer; Glenn Ford, actor; Joanna Lumley, actress; Kate Smith, singer; Rita Coolidge, singer; Dann Florek, actor; Jack Paar, TV host.
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.
SATURDAY, MAY 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may clash with someone whose ideas of what is "appropriate" don't jibe with your own. Only through compromise is this to be resolved.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your behavior may be somewhat unusual today -- at least to those who don't know you all that well. Your friends understand what's going on.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been working hard toward a particular end, but today you may realize that you will have to change course if you are to avoid a setback.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What's good for you at home may not be good for you when you step out your door; you'll want to make appropriate decisions at all times today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your own fantasies of success may be getting in your way today, as they are unrealistic in the extreme. Think instead of what can really happen.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You need more of something you've gotten only a little of recently. Today, you may well stumble upon the mother lode, so enjoy!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22 -- Be too passive today and you're sure to miss out on what is yours by rights -- but if you're too aggressive, you may endure worse harm than that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- This is a good day to clear the air, especially if friends are behaving strangely. You can't afford to ignore a major issue.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have a plan in the works, but you're not ready to reveal it just yet. You want to be sure that all elements fit together properly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are eager to see things take a turn for the better, but you can't just sit back and expect that to happen. Play an active role!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The reaction you get from others may confuse you, as you had thought what you were planning was already approved. It's never that simple!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will find yourself drawn to those who think and act in ways that are very different from you. Is this a portent of things to come?
