Born today, you are likely to attract attention at a very young age, and the stars may arrange an early introduction to your life's work. Indeed, whether or not things fall out in such a way as to give you a head start, you're likely to get to work on your own, inspired by a few others whom you admire. You are compelled by your own competitive nature and keen interest in winning to forge a path for yourself without waiting too long for others to show you the way. You are strong-willed and sometimes contrary, but always eager to prove yourself; you will always work hard to show others what you can do. You may spend a great deal of time looking over your shoulder, fearful of rivals, but the truth is that you are likely in a class by yourself.
It may seem to others that you too often put your personal life on a back burner, choosing to focus on work. Indeed, this may be true now and then, but your personal needs are never too far from your thoughts. You trust, however, that personal contentment and professional success are closely linked -- and for you, they often are.
Also born on this date are: Queen Elizabeth II of England; Tony Romo, football player; James McAvoy, actor; Iggy Pop, singer; Tony Danza, actor; Charlotte Bronte, author; Robbie Amell, actor; Andie MacDowell, actress; Anthony Quinn, actor; John Muir, naturalist; Charles Grodin, actor; Robin Meade, journalist; Patti LuPone, singer and actress; Toby Stephens, actor.
