Born today, you are likely to enjoy a great deal of good fortune while you are relatively young, but you must never let this go to your head or take it for granted in any way. As soon as you get used to having success handed to you on the proverbial silver platter, it is likely to be denied you suddenly, and for quite some time! Always remember that fate itself responds to your input; the stars favor those who take the most active part in their own development and evolution. Those who simply wait for success to come to them will wait and wait and wait -- while you continue to work hard and enjoy that success yourself!
Of course, there is no denying that you have been endowed with tremendous gifts; these are sure to give you the advantage in the professional arena. Personal issues, however, may give you pause now and then, causing you to doubt yourself in some way. Remain calm, however, and you can solve even the most pressing personal problems.
Also born on this date are: Cam Newton, football player; Salvador Dali, artist; Natasha Richardson, actress; Irving Berlin, songwriter; Louis Farrakhan, political figure; Martha Graham, choreographer and dancer; Foster Brooks, actor; Tim Blake Nelson, actor; Martha Quinn, TV personality; Phil Silvers, actor and comedian; Frances Fisher, actress; Laetitia Casta, model.
