Born today, you have been endowed with the kind of mental agility, emotional fortitude and physical strength and stamina that will allow you to accomplish almost anything you set your sights on in life. You can prevail in almost any difficult situation, even a matter of life and death. It would be an exaggeration to say you are the perfect human specimen, but the fact is that you have so much going for you that others will surely admire you, emulate you and want to be you. How much more perfect can one be? And truly, you are so adept at so many things that you would be able to choose almost any career and make a success of it.
But all is not rosy, for you have a dark side that you keep well-hidden from the world at large. When that aspect of your personality rises to dominance -- even for a very brief period -- you can become quite negative and self-absorbed, and it is almost always best for you to be alone at such times.
Also born on this date are: Mila Kunis, actress; Halle Berry, actress; Tim Tebow, football player; Magic Johnson, basketball player; Steve Martin, actor and comedian; Doc Holliday, dentist and gunslinger; David Crosby, guitarist and singer; Danielle Steel, author; Marcia Gay Harden, actress; Susan Saint James, actress; Gary Larson, cartoonist; James Horner, composer; Sarah Brightman, singer.
