Born today, you are a strong-willed individual who is not likely to give way to anyone without something of a battle -- and even when you are faced with evidence that your opinion is faulty, you're not likely to adjust your thinking without some kind of fight. Indeed, you are perhaps the most aggressive individual born under your sign, and when young you may well have had more than your share of run-ins with authority because of behavior that is considered unacceptable.
You are determined to maintain strong and healthy ties with family and friends, no matter where you may go -- and these people can offer you a great deal of inspiration when you need it. You want the people close to you to be proud of what you do, but you must understand that even they may not always agree with your motives -- or your methods.
Also born on this date are: Bob Saget, actor and comedian; Craig Ferguson, comedian and TV host; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxer; Carlos Pena, baseball player; Enya, singer; Bill Paxton, actor; Dennis Hopper, actor and director.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be quite erratic today, at least in the eyes of someone who is trying to capture the essence of you in some way. Cooperate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can do what you are called on to do today, and the only thing standing in your way is your own uncertainty. Don't psych yourself out!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't force an issue that is really only a matter of taste or preference. There's room for both you and a rival in the same room.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A reunion has you wishing you were somewhere else -- but not for the reason you may think. By day's end, you'll be changing your tune, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may wonder at an old friend's seeming change in attitude. Not much is different, so perhaps you've both followed divergent paths.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The broad strokes have been completed, and now you must focus on the details. This current project will reveal a great deal about you to many.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The past and the present may collide today -- while you're busy thinking about the future. Take some time to tie up several loose ends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- An unfamiliar yearning is likely to send you in a new direction today, at least for a short time. What you discover proves quite valuable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll derive a great deal of personal strength from what you see and hear all around you today. It's a good time for you to step up.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Where you are right now may not resemble, in the least, the picture in your mind of where you want to be. What is it that must change?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- How you present yourself today will make all the difference, but it all depends upon making an early start and not missing any unspoken cues.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can do much to ease someone's discomfort today -- but what about your own? You may discover that you simply have to ride it out.
