Born today, you are driven by something almost indefinable. Whatever that is will compel you to achieve greatness that is sure to be recognized by others and that can take you directly to the threshold of lasting success. What is it, at the core, that propels you? That is the question that many will be asking, for those who know you are eager to understand you, yet try as they might, they may never fully comprehend what propels you forward. The truth is that you may never know what it is, either -- but you will surely keep going, even when the going gets tough.
You may come upon one or two formidable obstacles in your pursuit of professional accomplishment or personal contentment. The better you know yourself, the more likely you will be to overcome these obstacles, but if you are not willing to look deep within, they may actually threaten you in ways that are quite fearsome.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, technology mogul; Jonas Salk, biologist; Dennis Franz, actor; Charlie Daniels, singer.
