Born today, you are likely to lead a life that is in many ways cloaked in mystery -- not because you try to hide from anyone, but rather because you enjoy being "mythologized" and looked upon as someone unique and untouchable by others. Indeed, when young and following the advice and directives of those in charge, this will be something you will work hard to maintain, but by the time you are living your own life in your own way, it will happen as a matter of course.
Despite any mysterious "mythmaking" that is at the center of your identity as well as your public persona, the fact is that you see yourself as rather "normal," the kind of person who simply goes about their business in predictable ways in order to reach sensible goals.
Also born on this date are: Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet; Frank Oz, filmmaker; Anne Heche, actress; Claude Akins, actor; Mike Myers, actor and comedian; Sir Ian McKellen, actor; Octavia Spencer, actress; Igor Sikorsky, aircraft designer; Gene Tunney, boxer.

FRIDAY, MAY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You realize, just in time, that attempts to get someone to adopt your point of view are purely in vain. It's time to go your own way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Key issues will seem to invite you to do all you can to address them. Follow your instincts and trust in your experience all day today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone who is supposed to be an ally may prove a saboteur today, and you will have to act fast to stave off any lasting damage.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may experience something of a setback today, not because of something you did, but because of something you didn't. An ally speaks true.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is not the time to settle for something you don't really want -- though you'll surely have to wait longer than expected for what you really need.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Travel demands more than mere preparation today. While on your journey you may have to do something unusual before reaching your destination.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A certain lesson taught to you perhaps years ago rings in your ears throughout the day as you attempt to do the impossible. This can work out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you most desire is likely to be closer to you today than at any time in the recent past. Are you ready to make the most of the moment?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A puzzle is solved today just in the nick of time, but then you'll have to use the information it provides on a certain personal mystery.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have plenty to work with today, and complaining about being short on time or resources is simply disingenuous. Focus on real problems.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The closer you can come to seeing things through someone else's eyes today, the sooner you will realize what it is that you must do next.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Trying to fix things for someone isn't likely to be the panacea you had hoped today. You must allow some problems to solve themselves.
