Born today, you are one of those whose attitude and outlook are the best when things are going your way, but you may sink quickly into frustration, depression and even despondency when things are going against you. This means, of course, that you will surely be riding quite a roller coaster of emotion throughout your lifetime -- unless you learn to control your ups and downs so that you experience only moderate fluctuations. It is not always success that lifts you up, nor failure that brings you down; indeed, there are times in which only you may know what it is that triggers either your elation or your depression.
You love to tackle tasks that seem to be too much for you. The challenge, to you, is far more rewarding in itself than any promise of personal reward -- though you can surely enjoy such rewards when and if they come your way! You are tenacious and eager to see how far you can extend yourself.
Also born on this date are: Sally Jessy Raphael, talk-show host; George Harrison, former Beatle; Jim Backus, actor; Pierre-August Renoir, painter; Anthony Burgess, author; Carrot Top, comedian.
