Born today, you are destined to reach great heights, but your definition of "success" is very much your own, and no matter how high you climb in the common sphere of experience and expectation, it is likely that you will feel that there is always something lacking, something you have yet to do, some rung of the ladder which you haven't yet reached. This is an aspect of your character that you must learn to control, lest it plunge you again and again into a kind of emotional rut from which it will be very hard to extricate yourself.
You are quite adept at making plans and getting others to commit themselves to them, and this is quite fortunate since you are far more effective when giving orders than you are when following them.
Also born on this date are: Emilio Estevez, actor; Florence Nightingale, social reformer and nurse; Jason Biggs, actor; Katharine Hepburn, actress; Yogi Berra, baseball player; George Carlin, comedian; Ving Rhames, actor; Stephen Baldwin, actor; Edward Lear, poet.
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 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is not the time to consider shortcuts, as you're likely to expose yourself to hidden risks without enjoying any real benefit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to make more decisions than usual, perhaps -- but that suits your current state of mind, which is not locked upon any single reality.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You aren't likely to avoid all distractions today, but you can use some to your advantage as they inspire you to take unusual action.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- How others react to you is far less important today than how you react to them in turn. You must block out all the noise today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to come up with all the right answers today, but you can guide others to them by contributing what you know when the time comes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be influenced by others today in ways that are not habitual for you -- but the changes that result can be seen in a positive light.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone reaches out to you today with an expectation of meaningful contact -- and you can provide it, surely! You want to interact more freely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others may be eager to take advantage of your expertise right now, but you're not willing to provide it without the promise of compensation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Think twice before giving something old to someone new, as it may have a deeper value far beyond anything you have suspected.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Excitement begins to bubble beneath the surface today as you reveal certain details of what you have in store. Don't be impatient!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot expect yourself to remember all names, faces, contacts and other details today; you must take the time to write them down.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Much will depend upon quick recall in the days to come; your memory is sound, and your ability to organize information unmatched.
