Born today, you have a highly developed sense of right and wrong, and your principles are so keen that you are never likely to be shaken from any stance you have taken as a result of careful thought, genuine feeling or deeply rooted belief. You don't always espouse "popular" thinking; you never feel the need to align yourself with the masses, and you more often than not intentionally distance yourself from the majority view.
This can sometimes be a problem, especially when it has become a kind of "principle" of its own and you take a certain stand simply because it differs from that which others have taken. You must realize that to be "different" is not necessarily the same as being "right" -- and being right is really what matters to you in the long run.
You can be rather finicky when it comes to personal taste; you like what you like, and you're not usually very adventurous when it comes to trying other things. This is too bad, really, because on those rare occasions when you do venture into unknown territory you usually like what you try! When it comes to the things you do like, you can be rather self-indulgent -- and you don't always like to share!

WEDNESDAY, MAY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself at a standstill today for reasons that are not clear -- but if you pay attention to your surroundings, you'll get answers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A willingness to see things from another's perspective is all that you need today to get the most out of a certain rapidly evolving situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to pay a little something for a certain privilege that you know is rare. By day's end, this outlay of cash will have been worth it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Just because you are a bystander doesn't mean you can change the outcome of a certain situation. Now is the time to get involved!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be ready to advance to the "next level" today -- so give yourself a little more time to get used to your current position.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may require some technical assistance today, but once you have mastered the first few steps of a given task, you're well on your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are no doubt growing tired of the way things "have to be," but are you ready to buck the system and change things to suit your desires?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your focus may have to be split today between two very important issues -- but you realize, just in time, that they are closely linked.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's time to swing into action, and you know just what to do -- and how. Someone you know doesn't trust that you can pull this off.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be dealing with more issues today than you had anticipated, but this should not be a problem once you have set up clear priorities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is not the time for you to wage war against the powers that be. Indeed, though it may prove difficult, cooperation can pay off handsomely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may fear that to do what you are told today will be tantamount to selling out -- but that is not the case. You have much to gain.
