BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Danny Trejo was born in Los Angeles on this day in 1944. This birthday guy has earned a following for his menacing tough guy roles in such films as "Machete," "Desperado" and "Spy Kids." He's guest-starred on recent episodes of "Modern Family" and "The Good Guys" and he spent a season on the long-running soap "The Young and the Restless."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You tend to flip your luck like an hourglass and go from one thing to another without a care in the world. You might be filled with energy, but scatter it, just hoping that everything will turn out in the end.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Kibitzers care enough to send the very best. You might obtain some valuable information during short discussions at the water cooler. This is a good time to ask for advice or search for knowledge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Hang on tight. The roller coaster emotional ride you take today could be triggered by group dynamics. You could feel somewhat out of your element at a meeting or in a group of your peers.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Maintain the vantage point. You can handle any problems or disputes by remaining tolerant and wise. Find a way to hover above the baseless, groundless fears that prompt other people to run for cover.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can earn some fame for your forums. You have the knack for asking the most delightful questions and can guide conversations right down the garden path. You may be called upon to act as a mediator.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might be more concerned about style than content. People might perceive you as being more attractive and desirable than you really are, so this is a good day to knock on doors or pursue a new hookup.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You could have mixed feelings about irrational logistics. For a few hours a family issue could mystify you, because the harder you try to do the right thing the more likely it is that it appears illogical.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are so anxious for fun that you fail to think of fear. If there is a lottery ticket to be purchased or a pair of dice to be thrown, you might act like a dog waiting for a turn at the world's last bone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Crank up the search engine and find the answer. It is a time to investigate mysteries that intrigue you. You are at your best pretending to be the powerful Oz and working behind the scenes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dream big and beautiful. Heaven is something you can't enjoy while your feet still walk the earth. Yet you can make everything that surrounds you as heavenly as possible through sheer force of will.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You prefer to be pampered and you are primed for a party. You don't care that it is the middle of the week or that there is work to be done. You might have the urge to flirt outrageously all day long.
IF MAY 16 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Count your blessings. During the end of June and first half of July, you may be a bit wiser and more visionary than usual. Dream big, because you have a good chance to achieve your ambitions. This is a fine time to make plans for the future or to put your most important plans into motion. Anything worth your time and effort will move forward without a hitch. If you can't get a door to open then you know that whatever lies on the other side is not good for you. July is also a blissful month for romantic escapades. September is a great month for business related success or to show off your excellent financial prowess.
