Born today, you do not tend to place great importance on material gains, financial reward or any kind of advancement that might be considered significant to most others in the modern world. What matters to you is something rather old-fashioned, something that is little talked about in modern society, but which, to you, is the be-all and the end-all of correct living: honor. You are, in fact, honor-bound -- not just when you give your word, but in all things. Whereas the person next to you might pursue gold, silver and riches, you are more likely to pursue that which can bring you honor.
There are times when you may actually fool yourself into thinking that you can do anything; this is only because when you set your mind to it you can, indeed, do almost anything -- if not expertly, then at least sufficiently. You're sure to experience much in your lifetime as a result.
Also born on this date are: Hilary Swank, actress; Vivica A. Fox, actress; Lisa Kudrow, actress; Laurence Fishburne, actor; Kate Bush, model; Delta Burke, actress; Jean Reno, actor; Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor and California governor; Peter Bogdanovich, filmmaker; Casey Stengel, baseball player and manager; Henry Ford, auto mogul; Emily Bronte, author.
