Born today, you are comfortable lending support to others as well as being front and center yourself, and this is sure to give you a distinct advantage as you progress through life. The secret, of course, is that you never insist on being one or the other -- leader or follower -- at any given time. You are quite able to be fluid and flexible in almost all situations, to do what is required and be whatever is appropriate under the circumstances. In this way, you are always changing slightly, playing the chameleon and becoming whatever a given situation demands.
Some may say this is merely an unwillingness to be firm and unequivocal -- but so be it. The truth is that this is your way of making things work in a complicated world -- a world that can be quite frustrating to those who are unable or unwilling to make compromises. You're able to navigate successfully, no matter how the wind is blowing.
Also born on this date are: George Harrison, singer and musician; Sean Astin, actor; Chelsea Handler, comedian, actress, television host; Tea Leoni, actress; Jim Backus, actor; Nancy O'Dell, journalist; Pierre-Auguste Renoir, painter; Anthony Burgess, writer; Sally Jessy Raphael, talk-show host.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're waiting for an offer to come through that might actually solve all of your problems -- or at least present you with several options.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What are you supposed to do if the day begins differently than you planned? Why, improvise, of course -- and you're quite good at it!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to get inside a problem and work it out in a way that makes it impossible for the same issue to arise again. You can do it!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your creativity is on the rise, yet you may not be quite sure what endeavor will allow you to use it to the best advantage. Explore!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- This is a good day to start making a plan that will involve many others -- especially those close to you. Think big!
