Born today, you are able to take center stage when circumstances require it, but you are also able to be quite content -- and productive and useful -- behind the scenes, doing those things that support others who find themselves in the spotlight. This versatility of yours, this comfort with any kind of role, is something that gives you a tremendous advantage in life, for it means that you will be ready for virtually anything when it comes -- whether it be the responsibility that falls to one behind the scenes, or the pressure of playing a leading role. You have a great deal of energy; this, combined with your ability to anticipate coming events, enables you to grapple with all manner of situations with confidence.
You are not so concerned with your own well-being and success that you are unable to be considerate of others; on the contrary, you are always taking other people under your wing, helping them, guiding them and assisting them in their own journeys. Indeed, this may actually bring you your greatest contentment.
Also born on this date are: Jewel, singer and poet; Rosemary Clooney, singer; Drew Carey, actor and comedian; Scatman Crothers, actor.
