Born today, you have what it takes to score a long and lucrative career, provided you are able to be content with what comes along the way. You are not likely to be in complete control at all times, and the stars are sure to surprise you again and again with what you might call "good luck," "bad luck" and everything in between. Like so many Leo natives, you like to think you are in charge, so it may be difficult for you at times to acknowledge the influence that fate has on your life. Yet that very acknowledgment can lead to a kind of cooperative effort between you and the stars that allows you to make the most of almost every opportunity that comes your way.
You are a highly emotional individual, but you will learn how to keep your emotions in check when you must -- or, if not, you will surely pay the price again and again for behavior that is not in line with accepted norms. No matter how strongly you may feel about something, you must always follow the rules!
Also born on this date are: Matt LeBlanc, actor; Walter Payton, football player; Estelle Getty, actress; Iman, model and actress; Walter Brennan, actor; Brad Renfro, actor; Illeana Douglas, actress; Maxfield Parrish, illustrator.
