Born today, you are never one to confuse being well-known with being liked. Much of your life will be spent balancing these two very different states of being. If you had to choose, you would certainly choose being well-known over being popular. Like so many Scorpio natives, you insist on being allowed to grow and thrive in your own way, and popularity often involves a kind of sacrifice that you are loath to make. You are confident that if you are allowed to follow your own path in your own unique way, you will become renowned. Such a reward is valuable to you, and worth pursuing.
You like to be present at the beginning of a thing, rather than joining later, after everything has been decided upon. This is partially a result of your desire to be original -- but more, perhaps, the product of a desire to make a difference. You want everything you do to matter.
Also born on this date are: Ruth Gordon, actress; Grace Slick, singer; Henry Winkler, actor, director and producer; Harry Hamlin, actor; Ezra Pound, poet; John Adams, U.S. president.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
