Born today, you do not believe in coincidences; rather, you believe in things being in the proper order -- even if that "order" appears to most to be random or accidental. You believe that everything in life can be explained in a simple, rational manner -- indeed, that the simplest explanations are almost always right! For all your reliance on things being the way they should be, the way the stars and other forces have lined them up, you also believe that it is a good thing to "go crazy" now and then in order to rediscover what works best for you.
You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that you are always right. You must remain open to all manner of views, especially those that conflict most directly with your own -- for they are the ones that will challenge you and help shape and reshape your thinking again and again as you make your way through daily life.
Also born on this date are: George Clooney, actor and director; Tom Bergeron, TV host; Sigmund Freud, psychologist and author; Willie Mays, baseball player; Bob Seger, singer; Stewart Granger, actor.

THURSDAY, MAY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll benefit from an encounter with someone who is far more streetwise than you are -- and you may soon have a new partner as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Check in with a friend or co-worker today. You'll likely discover more about yourself in the process. A lesson is learned quickly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll want to shop around before choosing just the right tool for the job you have to do today. You'll know it when you see it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Not everything will be predictable today, but you can get a sense of what may happen if you keep your eyes and ears open at all times.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not one for charts and graphs today; rather, you'll want to trust your instincts -- and come to decisions based on how you feel, and why.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be dealing with someone who doesn't understand the money problem you're facing. This must be solved before anything else today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others will be moving in a different direction today, leaving you to enjoy where you are to the best of your ability with only few distractions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Stability is a key issue today. Do only those things that give you strength and confidence at this time; you can leave the rest to others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't sell yourself short today; ask for what you feel you deserve, and stick to it. Someone may try to weaken your position.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you give to another you also need, so you don't want to let go of all of it, surely! You should be able to reach a fair arrangement.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may think that you will benefit from remaining aloof and even solitary throughout the day -- but this is an erroneous perception.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are sure that someone is doing you wrong, but a careful examination of the facts reveals that you've been misinterpreting many interactions.
