Born today, you are confident that the world turns as it does for a reason, and your belief in destiny -- whether dictated by the stars, a divine being or simply human nature -- is likely to be lifelong. Despite this belief that some may call outdated or old-fashioned, you are able to function quite well in the modern world. You direct your energies into very real, daily endeavors that can further your agenda and propel you to professional success and personal contentment, putting your beliefs on a back burner when necessary. You are determined to fulfill your own destiny, but unlike others, you are not the kind to place the blame for your own failures on anyone else. You fully understand that the responsibility for fulfilling your destiny is yours and yours alone.
You can be rather fiery and combative at times, particularly when you feel you are being threatened in some way, either professionally or personally. You may well amass a considerable fortune in your lifetime, and you will never let yourself become irresponsible in the management of that fortune. A dime, to you, is as important as a dollar.
Also born on this date are: Kelly Clarkson, singer; Barbra Streisand, singer, actress and filmmaker; Chipper Jones, baseball player; Cedric the Entertainer, comedian; Shirley MacLaine, actress and author; Carlos Beltran, baseball player; Djimon Hounsou, actor; Jill Ireland, actress; Jean Paul Gaultier, fashion designer; Omar Vizquel, baseball player; Anthony Trollope, author.
