Born today, you are likely to be the center of attention, off and on, throughout your lifetime. Like many Leo natives, you can be quite aggressive as you pursue your goals, and there is nothing about you that is bashful, sheepish or retiring. When you want a thing, you go and get it -- it's as simple as that. On the way, you are sure to attract the attention of others, whether supportive or critical. You are perhaps more colorful and creative than others born under your sign, and this can serve you well; you will have something unique and original to offer when you are given the opportunity.
You are quite tenacious, and you know how to hang on and stay the course even when you are faced with situations that are not conducive to personal progress and success. You are confident that "no" can lead, eventually, to "yes" -- and even one "yes" far outweighs a great many "noes," as far as you are concerned!
Also born on this date are: Lucille Ball, actress; Andy Warhol, artist; Geri Halliwell, singer; Robert Mitchum, actor; Vera Farmiga, actress; Alexander Fleming, scientist; M. Night Shyamalan, filmmaker; Catherine Hicks, actress; Alfred Lord Tennyson, poet.
