Born today, you are a strong and sometimes willful individual, but not so strong and willful that you are able to counter the influences of those who would control you in various ways throughout your lifetime. What this means, of course, is that you must always be aware of what others want from you, what they are asking and what they are willing to do for you in return -- because the trade may not always be fair to you! How your confidence and strength can work for you -- in spades -- is by making you into what could be called a "marketable commodity," someone who is valuable to others and is therefore treated as such. In this way, you can have what you want while giving others what they demand.
Despite being torn between a desire to satisfy others and a need to take care of yourself, you should be able to find a balance that gives you a very contented life, indeed. Control, of course, is the issue; you must always know what you cannot control, what you can and how you can maintain that balance at all times.
Also born on this date are: Kate Upton, model; Judy Garland, actress, singer and entertainer; Hattie McDaniel, actress; Elizabeth Hurley, actress; Tara Lipinski, figure skater; Maurice Sendak, author; Jeanne Tripplehorn, actress; Leelee Sobieski, actress; John Edwards, politician; Gina Gershon, actress; Dan Fouts, football player and sportscaster.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to work harder than usual to balance what is going on in your head and in your heart. Both processes are valid!
