Born today, you are likely to get an early taste of success, and this will help you set your sights on goals that are both lofty and realistic. The trick, of course, is to continue to develop your talents to the fullest, and to jump at the opportunities that are afforded you, both professionally and personally. You are likely to come under the influence of one or two individuals who gain your faith and trust, and who seem to have your best interest at heart. You may discover, however, that only one of these individuals is showing you the way to the success and self-knowledge you value and seek.
Relaxation is often the key to your success; allow yourself to get nervous, anxious or otherwise keyed up, and you are likely to find everything you have worked for slipping away -- slowly perhaps, but also permanently. You must never let your emotions get the better of you; remain calm and "in the zone," and you can prevail in all things.
Also born on this date are: Vanessa Hudgens, actress; Nostradamus, poet and prophet; Patty Duke, actress; Spike Jones, bandleader; Charlie Rich, singer and songwriter; Shirley Jackson, author; Lee Remick, actress; Tycho Brahe, astronomer; Bill Buckner, baseball player; James H. Doolittle, World War II aviator.
