Born today, you like to think about things. The more you are allowed to consider the details and deep realities of a given situation, the happier you may be -- and the more secure you will find yourself. Confidence, for you, is the result of learning; the more you learn, the more confident you will surely become -- and the more confident you become, the more likely you will be to do the things you want to do and achieve your life's goals. This is not bound to be a quick process, however. You may have to employ a great deal of patience, but with the stars aligned correctly, you can be sure that all of your dreams will come true.
You are likely to be compared with a great many others, particularly as you make yourself known in professional circles, but there will come a time when -- bang! -- you will suddenly be praised for your own unique contributions. You can ultimately be one of the greats.
Also born on this date are: Cheech Marin, actor and comedian; Erno Rubik, inventor of the Rubik's Cube; Harrison Ford, actor; Patrick Stewart, actor; Jack Kemp, politician; Bob Crane, actor; Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate general.
