Born today, you have been endowed with a great deal of insight and wisdom, and you apply these to everything you do, no matter where you may be or whom you may be with. You are keenly interested in what is going on around you at all times -- but more importantly, you are compelled to learn why it is happening. In this regard, you will likely spend a great deal of time studying the behavior of people from all times and places, and, indeed, the history of the world at large is perhaps the most fascinating topic of study for you.
You must always guard against taking things too personally. Balance is the key, of course, and you must never put universal issues too far above your own.
Also born on this date are: George Strait, singer; Tina Fey, actress, writer, producer; Pope John Paul II; Jack Johnson, singer; Reggie Jackson, baseball player; Perry Como, TV host; Pernell Roberts, actor; Bill Macy, actor.
TUESDAY, MAY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't let others intrude on your personal space today. It should become clear before day's end just what is at stake at this time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Temptations are all around you today, but you can be strong and resist. Someone you know may fall prey to a scheme you see through easily.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Time management will be a major issue for you today -- and perhaps in the days to come. See what others are doing to be more efficient.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You want to be closer to someone who is far from home, but no current method gives you what you really want. Perhaps a journey is in order?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're willing to give any good idea a try at this difficult time, but you must remember to give credit where credit is due.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be able to do what others have been unable to do simply because you're not one to take "no" for an answer right now. Get your work done!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Business affairs take an unusual turn today, just as you decide to put your attention elsewhere. Nothing happens as expected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can learn a thing or two from a family member who is doing things his or her way. Objections may be raised, but do they really count?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not feel quite up to the challenge you are currently facing, but you cannot trust anyone else to do what you know how to do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll find adversity where you expect it today, so take care you don't enter into something new with a chip on your shoulder.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Others may be asking a great deal of you at this time, but nothing more than you are asking of yourself. You know what's really possible.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Some may look to you for unspoken guidance today, but others may see you as a threat because you are doing things very much your own way.
