Born today, you are almost always able to stand your ground, no matter what kind of challenge comes your way, and you are not about to compromise your principles or beliefs for any reason whatsoever -- even when faced with others that are contradictory but just as viable. You are strong, confident and capable, and you know how to harness the power of words to persuade and convince with authority and effectiveness.
There may be times in which you do not completely understand what is going on around you, and if you are too quick to pass judgment on such events and the people that drive them, you will surely find yourself in error and fighting to stay current and relevant. Even those who are strong and confident can -- and should -- evolve as the times change!
Also born on this date are: George Strait, singer; Tina Fey, actress, writer, producer; Pope John Paul II; Jack Johnson, singer; Reggie Jackson, baseball player; Perry Como, TV host; Pernell Roberts, actor; Bill Macy, actor.

THURSDAY, MAY 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have the chance to break through a personal barrier today and come closer than ever before to an important goal -- but you must let go.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll find it useful today to switch locations or positions several times; a new environment and a new view can serve as inspiration to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A request comes to you from an unknown source, and you must track down its origin today before you give it any serious consideration.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have what others want, but in order to keep it for yourself, you're going to have to share something that is equally dear to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can get ahead of the game today without putting too much pressure on yourself. The clock works in your favor -- as do certain key allies.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll find yourself in between duties on more than one occasion today, and this time can be used very productively as you make a new plan.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The simpler the idea today, the more likely it will be to come to fruition -- but it may not be the most satisfying thing you've worked on lately.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you hear through the grapevine cannot be relied upon -- but the mere fact that people are talking that way teaches you a key lesson.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The task of overseeing someone who is difficult to contain may fall to you today -- but you have a new and clever way of getting the job done.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Many of those passing by your door today will be able to provide you with important information -- all you have to do is ask in the right way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- There's no call today for any behavior that strikes others as rude or disrespectful. Proper words and actions come easily to you right now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you've done over the past few days is worth some appreciation -- but not just by you and those working with you. Share it with others.
