Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous personal energy -- the kind that may be virtually impossible to match. Combine that energy with extraordinary vision and creativity, and you are virtually unstoppable! The key is to chart a course for yourself as early in life as you possibly can, and to follow that course faithfully -- no matter what kinds of hazards and pitfalls you may encounter along the way. When all is said and done, you must be yourself; any attempt to be something -- or someone -- other than who you really are will likely come to nothing, and may indeed cause you harm of a sort that is not easy to shake off. You are stalwart, loyal and hardworking.
When it comes to personal relationships, you may not always have the best of luck, but everything you do and every decision you make comes from the heart and has the best intentions behind it. It may take you quite a long time to find that "perfect" someone -- the one who will always remain by your side, come what may.
Also born on this date are: Richard Gere, actor; Chris Tucker, actor; Van Morrison, singer; James Coburn, actor; Queen Rania of Jordan; Itzhak Perlman, violinist; Buddy Hackett, actor and comedian; Debbie Gibson, singer; Maria Montessori, educator; Eldridge Cleaver, activist and politician; Fredric March, actor; Hideo Nomo, baseball player; Edwin Moses, Olympic athlete.
