Born today, you are never more content than when you are challenging your own boundaries, mental and physical, as well as those of the people around you. You cannot abide the status quo, and will do all you can to shake things up and make changes to routine life -- on a daily basis, if you can swing it. You have been endowed with a tremendous intellect and the ability to conceptualize almost any idea in a manner that allows you to communicate it effectively to others.
You are quick to fall in love and quick to commit to the object of your love -- but those feelings are not always requited. Indeed, though there are many who may want to enjoy an unbridled weekend with you, not everyone wants to go "all in" with you. This is something that gives you pause, surely -- but you can rest assured that your true love is out there.
Also born on this date are: The Notorious B.I.G., rapper; Mr. T, actor; Raymond Burr, actor; Fats Waller, musician; Lisa Edelstein, actress; Leo Sayer, singer; Al Franken, comedian and politician; Henri Rousseau, artist.
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.
FRIDAY, MAY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Focus on the here and now and you'll surely be released of any issues. If you get lost in the past, your future is likely to suffer significantly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in no mood to be hemmed in today and surely won't respond well when someone tries to lay down the law -- and it's very likely to happen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Any attempt at disguising what you really think or feel is likely to fall short today -- and reveal even more than you're trying to hide.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can change the way you feel about your immediate environment by choosing to do something routine in a new way. Soon you're on your way!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll have a decision to make today, and in being true to yourself, you may have to disappoint a friend. Recovery can be quick and complete.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The plan you're working on is coming together, but today you may suffer a sudden setback when you reveal a bit too much prematurely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to be sure that all you are doing is in service of something bigger than yourself. Form and function can be combined.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- When faced with a problem, you should be able to acquit yourself today by remembering where you came from -- and where you're going.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A conflict arises today when you are unwilling to compromise on a matter of personal taste. Is this issue really all that important?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your original idea for the day may have to be abandoned when someone tosses the unexpected into the mix. You can get used to this, surely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can demonstrate both strength and sensitivity today as you deal with someone who is ill prepared for what he or she is going through.
