Born today, you will be no stranger to hardship in your life, but this doesn't mean that you will have a hard time of it personally, in your private affairs. Rather, you are likely to find yourself involved in endeavors that require you to do hard work, possibly for extended periods of time, and to face some serious dangers in the process. "Hardship," for you, doesn't mean the little things; it means the big things that can have a lasting impact on you, your family and loved ones, and all those whose lives you touch directly or indirectly. Fortunately, you are a master strategist, able to anticipate events with uncanny accuracy.
You know when to proceed with caution, surely, but you also know when to throw caution to the wind and proceed with daring. It is then, in fact, that you are likely to earn your greatest successes -- not by being careful, but by being brave!
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Rowan Blanchard, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Lori Petty, actress; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; Roger Moore, actor; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania; Steve Coogan, actor and comedian; e.e. cummings, poet.
