Born today, you may be misunderstood by those who do not take the time to get to know you well, for you can come across as rather stern and unforgiving among those who do not strive to meet your very high standards -- both personally and professionally. And while it is true that you can be, at times, hard and unbending, it is also true that there are moments in which you let your more sensitive side shine through -- and those who are privy to that part of your personality are likely to find much in you to connect with, be it in private affairs or professional dealings.
When it comes to your personal relationships, you respond quite favorably to those who earn your respect and loyalty -- and you find talent to be almost irresistibly attractive.
Also born on this date are: Andy Murray, tennis player; Emmitt Smith, football player; James Mason, actor; George Brett, baseball player; Eddy Arnold, country singer; Chazz Palminteri, actor; Joseph Cotten, actor; L. Frank Baum, author.

SUNDAY, MAY 16
AQUAIRUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An obstacle that you put in someone's path winds up blocking your own way today -- at least for a time. You understand how this happened!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The casual is likely to become much more serious all at once today, when you do or say something that you thought would go unnoticed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your plans are in flux, but you should be able to nail something down by day's end. The advice of an expert must not be overlooked today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're looking at things from an unusual perspective today -- one that you perhaps "inherited" from someone who's been here before.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- After a brief disconnect, you may be feeling a new urgency around a certain endeavor. It feels to you like a "now or never" situation, perhaps.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let the fact that you are feeling out of sorts keep you from honoring your pledge to a friend or loved one. Avoid self-indulgence today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Once you make your presence known today, you can be sure that your time will be used well and your skills utilized. Speak up if you have to!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You don't want to let too much more time pass before tending to a piece of business upon which hangs something you've long been planning.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Practice makes perfect, or so you've heard again and again -- but today that elusive perfection may remain elusive until you make an adjustment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to grasp a complicated concept before anyone else, but this will only be an advantage if you swing into action now!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find it difficult to maintain a steady course today, as you're likely to be buffeted by unexpected, fast-shifting winds.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- If you're going to have to wait, then others are going to have to wait as well, or so you would have it. Others may strongly object to this.
