Born today, you know what makes you tick. While others may not fully understand what drives them, you are certain that your self-knowledge is accurate and all-important. You would not like to be the kind of person who makes self-discoveries at every turn; instead, you prefer to have your own notions about yourself confirmed by the outside world -- by the situations in which you find yourself and the circumstances that define them. It is impossible for you to avoid all surprises, however, and when you are surprised to learn something about yourself, you find a way to put it to good use almost immediately.
Also born on this date are: Oksana Baiul, Olympic figure skater; Lisa Bonet, actress; Martha Plimpton, actress; Burgess Meredith, actor.
You pay keen attention to what happens around you, and you aren't the kind to let any details go unnoticed. You can move confidently through any forest, keenly aware of where every tree stands, while maintaining the big picture of that forest in your mind at all times.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
