Born today, you are never so content as when you are pursuing a personal goal that is built upon deeply held beliefs and the desire to better yourself at every turn. Indeed, being the best that you can possibly be, even in the most unforgiving of situations, is what you are all about -- and you're not going to let anyone stand in your way! You are idealistic in all things, and you lend to everything you do a kind of enthusiasm that borders on fervor -- or at least that's how others would identify it, and you devote yourself fully -- mind, body and soul -- to those things that kindle a fire of commitment within you.
You can be somewhat superstitious, and you're not likely to give way to someone who challenges any such notions you may have, no matter how odd they may be.
Also born on this date are: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, wrestler and actor; David Beckham, soccer player; Engelbert Humperdinck, singer; Christine Baranski, actress; Manfred von Richthofen, World War I flying ace; Theodore Bikel, actor.

SUNDAY, MAY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've established a pattern of behavior that serves you well, but today you may have to interrupt yourself to work on a tricky problem.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Perhaps the time has come to break the news to an old friend. Despite your fears, this will allow you both to move ahead in a new direction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is the time to work closely with someone who, in your view, knows more than you do. In any event, collaborating now can prove valuable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Changes may have to be made that leave you wanting in some way -- but you will find that you can make up for lost time by being creative.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You do not have to follow all the rules today, but know that breaking the wrong ones can set you back quite a bit. Instinct plays a key role.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who knows you well notices that things are not quite right with you today -- and by day's end, you'll be working together to fix them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You don't want to let those around you know all that is going on with you, so how you communicate is quite important. Subtlety is the key today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be surprised to learn that not all eyes are on you today. That suits you right now, as you're not eager to attract attention.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be pleased to learn that an expected difficulty isn't likely to materialize today. Your attitude serves another well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must avoid making things more complicated today than they already are. A friend knows what's going on, so you needn't be secretive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You've considered yourself rather lucky until now, but today you're expecting certain events to set you back. You may be surprised!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A simple smile employed at just the right time can work wonders today. Don't overdo it, however, or you'll be suspected of being insincere.
