Born today, you are likely to have enjoyed a lucky break while you were quite young, which allowed you to get a taste of the kind of success you truly want in life -- or think you do. The truth is that you may, as a result of this early introduction to worldly reward, discover that it is not really all that it is touted to be. You may therefore subsequently seek a kind of contentment that is yours alone. Still, you understand full well that you must, in some way, be a contributing member of society, not merely a loner who does only what your instincts and desires instruct you to do. You will learn to do just that, and make your way quite well.
You are likely to see many things in life that you will never forget, things that help you shape your own future even as you focus on the present. The past is something that you will always learn from, but not something that will haunt you in any serious way; you know how to let bygones be bygones.
Also born on this date are: Dule Hill, actor; Bing Crosby, actor and singer; Frankie Valli, singer; Pete Seeger, singer-songwriter; Sugar Ray Robinson, boxer; Christina Hendricks, actress; Golda Meir, Israeli leader; Christopher Cross, singer; Doug Henning, magician; Niccolo Machiavelli, political philosopher; Mary Astor, actress.
