Born today, you are endowed with a great many interests that you can, throughout your lifetime, develop into specific talents. These can, in turn, lead to some amazing accomplishments. What interests you most keenly is likely to be that which is quite unusual, rare or unconventional, and you will surely be drawn to those things like a moth to a flame. The metaphor is quite apt, for the very interests that give your life meaning can also be quite dangerous to you if you fail to use caution and chart your course with great care. You want to avoid self-immolation, surely!
You may not be as capable when it comes to love and other relationships as you are in your work -- or even your hobbies. It may be that your communication skills are somewhat lacking, or that you can at times be too self-concerned. Whatever the reason, a lasting love may, for a time, be somewhat elusive.
Also born on this date are: Snoop Dogg, rapper; Viggo Mortensen, actor; Danny Boyle, filmmaker; Tom Petty, singer-songwriter and musician; Jerry Orbach, actor; Mickey Mantle, baseball player; Art Buchwald, humorist; Bela Lugosi, actor; Christopher Wren, architect.
