Born today, you are nothing if not tenacious. Indeed, you are sure to prove yourself in those situations that would no doubt be too much for most other individuals, even other Leo natives. But you are able to dig more deeply into hidden reserves to provide yourself with the energy, concentration and dedication you need to succeed even in the face of the worst possible odds. You must always remember, however, that you are by no means invincible. You must always treat yourself well -- eat right, get rest and avoid driving yourself to the point of exhaustion.
Not only are you able to derive inspiration from the most unlikely of sources, but you are also a source of inspiration to others, especially later in your career, at which time you will dedicate yourself to causes and endeavors in ways that truly set you apart. Your inner strength is remarkable.
Also born on this date are: Mila Kunis, actress; Halle Berry, actress; Tim Tebow, football player; Earvin "Magic" Johnson, basketball player; Steve Martin, actor and comedian; Doc Holliday, dentist and gunfighter; David Crosby, guitarist and singer; Danielle Steel, author; Marcia Gay Harden, actress; Susan Saint James, actress; Gary Larson, cartoonist; James Horner, composer; Sarah Brightman, singer.
