Born today, you are one of the most ambitious individuals born under your sign, often driven beyond the bounds of common sense or rationality. What is important for you and others to remember, however, is that what is good for you does not have to be good for anyone else, and vice versa. The fact is that though others may judge you for being what they would call obsessed, you are doing what you were hard-wired to do, and you are almost certain to enjoy a great deal of success as a result. You are not one of those who has to explore a great many options before deciding on your life's path; that course is likely to be charted for you by the stars, perhaps long before you are born.
Also born on this date are: Ludwig van Beethoven, composer; Jane Austen, author; Billy Gibbons, guitarist; Benjamin Bratt, actor; Benny Andersson, singer-songwriter; Wassily Kandinsky, painter; Margaret Mead, anthropologist; Arthur C. Clarke, author; Lesley Stahl, journalist; Noel Coward, playwright and actor; Steven Bochco, TV producer; Ben Cross, actor.
There is one serious hazard that may befall you on several occasions throughout your lifetime, and that is isolation as a product of overwork. You must never let yourself lose friends or sacrifice loved ones in favor of a project that has won your dedication. You must always balance the personal and the professional!
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.
