Born today, you are such a wildly creative individual that it is anyone's guess, at any given time, what they might find you working on -- and, indeed, there are times when you may surprise even yourself by jumping wholeheartedly into something you've never done or doing something seemingly routine in a way that has never been tried. You do what your imagination compels you to do, and you are rarely, if ever, limited by any notion of what others might want you to do or of how others might want you to do it.
You don't have a very big attention span, nor are you all that patient when it comes to a job, and you're sure to steer clear of the kind of thing that provides you with an ongoing routine even while keeping your bank account healthy. You want more than that, and you can have it -- but you must know that there will be sacrifices to make along the way.
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.
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.
MONDAY, MAY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been underestimating your power lately, but today you'll have the chance to do something that puts it on display.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must alert others to something that only you have noticed so far. If no one responds, you'll have a tricky situation on your hands.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Count up the reasons you've come up with for doing a certain thing today, and you'll understand just how necessary it is. Don't hold back.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be looking forward to receiving feedback on a certain past endeavor, but what you learn will serve you well in future attempts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to deal with the consequences of a recent entanglement, especially if you haven't quite sorted it out to your satisfaction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You receive a boost today from someone who understands, perhaps more than you do, what you're trying to accomplish. You get a head start.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can learn a great deal more from watching someone struggle with a certain situation than you can from dealing with it yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find that many of the usual rules do not apply today -- but that doesn't mean you can do anything you want. Be mindful of others!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Information isn't likely to come to you very quickly today, in part because you haven't yet set up an efficient way to receive it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't pay so much attention to what others are doing and saying that you are careless in your own work. You must avoid mistakes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The fallout from a recent decision is difficult to handle today -- but a friend steps in and helps you clear the way forward just in time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been doing a great deal to prove that self-esteem is justified, and today others should come to that conclusion at last.
