Born today, you pay close attention to all the signs and warnings that life presents to you day after day, but this isn't the same as doing the thing those signs suggest! Indeed, there are times when a sign may tell you to go left, but you go right instead, or when you are warned not to go up, when up is in fact the way you go. For you, it is not so important to do what you are advised to do, but rather to know what that advice is in order to prepare yourself as fully as possible for what is likely to come when you behave in certain ways. In other words, you are generally going to do exactly what you want to do, but knowing that it may be dangerous helps you prepare and, ultimately, succeed.
You enjoy having fun, and you can help others have a great deal of fun as well. You're not the kind to take things so seriously that you cannot laugh at yourself and your circumstances! It is very likely that you will choose a career path that affords you the opportunity for enjoyment even as you work hard to reach your goals.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Seinfeld, comedian and actor; Amy Heidemann, singer; Michelle Pfeiffer, actress; Dale Earnhardt, auto racer; Uma Thurman, actress; Daniel Day-Lewis, actor; Duke Ellington, musician; Andre Agassi, tennis player; Celeste Holm, actress; Carnie Wilson, singer; William Randolph Hearst, publisher; Richard Kline, actor; Emperor Hirohito of Japan.
