Born today, you are one of the most solid and insightful thinkers born under your sign -- but that doesn't mean you can't swing into action and be met with success through direct and daring involvement in this, that or the other thing. While you like to think of yourself as something of a philosopher, you're never satisfied to sit back and watch others enjoy all the fun -- or get all the glory.
You are keenly interested in the world around you, but this is not limited to your own local environment; on the contrary, you are eager to explore as much of the big, wide world as you possibly can -- and you're willing and able, often, to do so on the cheap, so your wanderings won't break the bank! Indeed, when it comes to saving money, you know how to do it without sacrificing what you want.
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.
THURSDAY, MAY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to spend some time behind the scenes today so that when everything is happening all at once it does so without causing a stir.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll enjoy a review of sorts that allows you to look back over past achievements. Which do you want to repeat? You'll have the opportunity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may face an issue that is far more emotional than you had anticipated today. A friend helps you see things through a clear lens.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be pulled into a situation against your will, but getting out of it will prove easier than expected. Don't be taken by surprise.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The closer you look at a certain situation, the more questions you'll be able to answer, especially if you see through another's eyes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone's behavior is almost sure to rub you the wrong way today, not because it breaks any rules, but because it pushes your buttons!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will be forced to consider something that you had dismissed in the past -- and this will mark the beginning of a significant shift.
