Born today, you are a rather daring individual, willing to put yourself in harm's way in order to reap the benefits that come to those who are willing to take risks. This is not to suggest that you are foolhardy; a daredevil you are not -- but you will do those things that others will not in order to come out on top. What separates you from the foolish or the dangerous is your ability to assess situations quickly, determine the risks you face ahead of time and prepare yourself adequately to endure what lies ahead. You are not one to charge blindly into situations that could endanger you -- though you are sure to face many dangers in your lifetime.
You are quite adept at spending money -- so it is a very good thing indeed that you are also good at making it! Still, you may want to engage the services of a financial planner or manager who can help you make the best use of your available resources on a daily basis.
Also born on this date are: Kim Fields, actress; Katharine Hepburn, actress; Florence Nightingale, health pioneer; Emilio Estevez, actor.
