Born today, you are an energetic, creative, even visionary individual with a great deal to offer not only the limited circle of those who share your professional ambitions and aspirations, but also the world at large. You are driven to accomplish a great deal in your lifetime, and you are never content to rest on your laurels. You want to be doing something at all times, and if it is something new that stretches and challenges you and brings you face to face with your fears and insecurities, so much the better! You are likely to benefit greatly from the work of one or two teachers who influenced you greatly during your youth, and you are equally likely to influence others similarly when you are older.
You may not, for many years, do anything that is considered radical or groundbreaking in your professional life -- until, quite suddenly, you have the opportunity to shake things up and take the world by storm by doing what others might have thought you would never do. At that time, you'll really come into your own!
Also born on this date are: Daniel Radcliffe, actor; Slash, guitarist; Woody Harrelson, actor; Marlon Wayans, actor; Philip Seymour Hoffman, actor; Monica Lewinsky, White House intern; Stephanie Seymour, model; Alison Krauss, singer; Don Drysdale, baseball player; Edie McClurg, actress; Raymond Chandler, author; Don Imus, radio personality.
