Born today, you often define yourself according to the way others see you, and your self-worth is very much wrapped up in their opinions of you. You understand and appreciate that this can be a rather unsteady, even dangerous way to live, but what choice do you have? You are made the way you are made, and the stars have decreed that you will care deeply about what others think of you. So instead of trying to be something that you are not, you must spend much of your life learning to navigate the uneven, treacherous ground upon which you conduct your affairs, both private and public. You are not the kind to shrug things off with ease.
You can be an intensely private individual, yet you require the contact of others to give your life meaning. This is a paradox that you will be trying to figure out through much of your life; it's not an easy puzzle to solve, but solving it is an essential endeavor for you.
Also born on this date are: Kim Kardashian, television personality; Carrie Fisher, actress; Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister; Judy Sheindlin, judge and television personality; Dizzy Gillespie, musician; Alfred Nobel, inventor; Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet.
