Born today, you can be rather flamboyant, colorful and larger than life, and others are sure to recognize you for your ability to forget about what anyone may think as you step out, unrestricted by the expectations of others, peddling yourself as you are to the rest of the world. You cannot and will not be held in place by any rules that say you must do this or must not do that, and when you feel you are being oppressed in any way you will fight back to regain your autonomy.
You know how to make the most out of a moment, large or small, and this is perhaps never truer than when you are in love. As a romantic partner, you can be counted on to lavish your partners with tokens of your affection and spoil them.
Also born on this date are: Megan Fox, actress; Janet Jackson, singer; Pierce Brosnan, actor; Tori Spelling, actress; Liberace, musician and entertainer; Henry Fonda, actor; Adam Richman, actor and TV host; Danny Trejo, actor.
MONDAY, MAY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You feel a strange sort of "pull" from someone who has gone unnoticed by you for quite a while. You'll want to figure out what's going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A "big idea" doesn't lead where you thought it would go today. Still, you should be able to salvage a bit of it and make that pay off somewhat.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't have to be front and center today in order to get things done. Indeed, you may have more wiggle room if you work behind the scenes.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a friend may find yourselves playing dueling critics as you take in something that doesn't satisfy you both equally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can put the finishing touches on something that someone has brought this far -- but be careful not to take an undue amount of credit.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is likely to get your attention today in the most unusual of ways. You may resist at first, but you'll be won over very quickly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others may be making something much more difficult than it needs to be, and today you may have to step in just to keep it simple.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The fruits of your labors are likely to ripen at last -- but something else is likely to take up your time today, at least for a short while.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today should pan out better than expected, especially when it comes to negotiations with others. You can arrange a compromise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know that it's time to give yourself credit for a job well done, but first you must acknowledge that you have, indeed, done all you can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Before the day is out, you'll come to understand something that was a complete mystery during morning hours. A friend supports you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't want to find yourself behind the 8-ball today, so you must spend some time anticipating what others will do -- and when and how.
