Born today, you are likely to find yourself in the spotlight many times from an early age, perhaps because you will display unusual and remarkable talents for one so young, or simply because you have been endowed with such a bright and colorful personality. Once you get started along a professional path, you're not likely to allow yourself to be distracted, discouraged or otherwise pulled away from what you are determined to accomplish. You are likely to break new ground and make a mark for yourself as a pioneer in many ways. You have confidence and spunk, yet you are never foolhardy or unrealistic.
What you want more than anything else is to create for yourself a niche that allows you to do the things you want in the ways that you want, while at the same time helping those around you maximize their own potential. You want, in other words, to be a leader, and in many ways to lead by example.
Also born on this date are: Kristi Yamaguchi, figure skater; Cheryl Ladd, actress; Richard Simmons, fitness guru; Christine McVie, singer and musician; Bill Cosby, actor, writer, producer, comedian; Van Cliburn, musician; Andrew Wyeth, artist; Milton Berle, actor and comic; Oscar Hammerstein, lyricist; Henry David Thoreau, writer.
