Born today, you are one of those rare and dramatic individuals for whom the lighter and darker sides of humanity have both installed themselves within your complex personality, and you will have to work hard throughout your lifetime to maintain a careful balance between them. You must always strive to keep the light and the dark in equilibrium in order to maintain a healthy outlook on life.
You are likely to be known, ultimately, for one or two quite remarkable achievements, and though you may not have set out to attract the attention of others to yourself and win the accolades of many, this is probably exactly what is going to happen! You must get used to being acknowledged as the leader of your chosen field, for it is likely you will be so sooner or later.
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.
FRIDAY, MAY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you're dealing with today is surely not your fault, though there are those who would try to make you think so. Be objective at all times.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to rub up against someone quite charismatic today, and you can learn a thing or two about your own powers of persuasion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not have much in common with someone who's been asking you for help of late, but that doesn't mean you can't be of assistance today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to look sharp and behave well when around those who are in a position to do you a good turn. Style counts for much today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may encounter someone who is in the mood for a fight today, but you're not about to give yourself over to any such lack of control.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to conflict with one who is looking at certain key issues from the opposite point of view. You mustn't lose control!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's a good day to make an offer to someone who has been inflexible in the past. It will be important to keep the lines of communication open.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't ignore the little things today! When you are most busy, you can expect someone to come to you with a rather troublesome concern.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone is likely to raise a good point today that you find impossible to ignore. This is related to something from your own past.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your plans may not pan out exactly as expected today, but one or two things will surely satisfy your need to be doing something important.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you give to another will come back to you eventually -- but you mustn't show any sign of impatience. Work will offer a proper distraction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your dealings with certain other individuals may become quite volatile all of a sudden -- but not because you've done anything out of the ordinary.
