Born today, you are nothing if not thoughtful, and you know how to work with familiar tools and materials to create something entirely new. You are not one to allow yourself to be locked into commonly held views; you are never interested in doing what you are told "should" be done -- nor will you tell others to do anything but what comes naturally to them.
When it comes to love, you are nowhere near as understanding and forgiving as you are in other aspects of daily life; indeed, you can be downright impossible when the green-eyed monster has you in its grip.
Also born on this date are: Adele, singer; Karl Marx, political philosopher; Tammy Wynette, singer; Brian Williams, TV news anchor; John Rhys-Davies, actor; Tyrone Power, actor; Pat Carroll, actress; Michael Palin, actor, writer, comedian.
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.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Guard against overreacting to what people say to you today, as they likely do not mean what you think they mean. Consider your intentions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A shock to the system needn't have lasting effects. You can get over it quickly if your attitude remains positive and your outlook clear.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Why stop with one when you can enjoy two, three or more? There's a limit to how much you can take, of course -- but you haven't reached it yet.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Focus on those things that are right in front of you today, and let peripheral issues be sorted out by others before you have to deal with them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can work quickly and efficiently today so long as you know exactly what it is you're trying to accomplish. Do you need a reminder?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may begin to doubt your inner strength today as you give way to someone who shouldn't hold such sway over you. Find the reason why!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- An answer to a "random" question points you in a surprising direction, but once you begin moving that way, the reasons will become clear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Pay attention to any and all instances when "if" plays a role today. This is the one thing that can work against you -- if you let it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to catch a glimpse today of something you've wanted to get your hands on for some time -- but for now it's only a glimpse.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may or may not want to share a secret with a loved one, but know that if you do, you will be opening the door to a new opportunity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must watch the clock today to ensure that everything you do is completed on time. If you have time to spare, you can use it for fun!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Watch your temper, as a flare-up will be harmful only to you today. Someone who has been helping you touches you in an unexpected way.
