Born today, you are not one with a clear and detailed path to follow at an early age. In fact, it may seem to some -- relatives, friends and those who know you only casually -- that you are not really destined for much, but such is not the case! As you near maturity, it is likely to dawn on you that you are, indeed, meant for something quite specific -- you will know not only what it is, but also how it is likely to be accomplished, and when. You know how to spot even the most disguised of opportunities, and you know how to take advantage of it in such a way that your own agenda is served in one way or another.
You don't necessarily prescribe to the common notions of success or happiness, and you understand that others may wonder, often vocally, how it is that you could possibly be content doing what you are doing. But your choices are for you, and you don't let others' reactions hold you back or dampen your enjoyment in life.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Jonas Salk, medical researcher; Dennis Franz, actor; Charlie Daniels, singer.
