Born today, you are a thoughtful, thorough and hardworking individual with a strong code of ethics and the ability to wrap your mind around even those concepts and proposals that are designed to confuse and deceive. This is not to suggest that you are in any way dour or humorless; on the contrary, you have a hearty laugh and you use it again and again, not only to express your enjoyment but also to encourage enjoyment in others.
Though you are likely no stranger to mishaps and loss, you never let them get the best of you, and you always find a way to avoid sinking into an emotional rut when things take a turn for the worse. You are also something of a magician when it comes to pulling others out of bad moods -- and again, it is your sense of humor that so often saves the day.
Also born on this date are: Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president; Robert Griffin III, football player; Charles Darwin, evolutionist and author; Christina Ricci, actress; Arsenio Hall, actor and talk show host.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ability to empower others will come in very handy today, as you will likely be relying on those around you to empower you in return.
CANCER (June 212-July 22) -- It’s one thing to make others feel capable, but it’s another altogether to fill their minds with delusions. You must avoid the latter!
