Born today, you will encounter many situations throughout your lifetime that allow you to tower over others, demonstrating remarkable skill and instinct, and receiving all manner of accolades and rewards. What is most remarkable, however, is that you will also, for all this, be able to maintain almost unheard-of humility. You retain the ability to look in the mirror every day and see yourself realistically, without embellishment or adornment, as a normal human being. You are never one to lord it over others, nor are you the kind to remain aloof because you don't deign to mix and mingle with those who seem less successful than you.
You may go through several periods in your life in which you wonder if you are actually on the right path. You may therefore decide to change direction rather suddenly to explore options and opportunities you hadn't considered in the past. Follow your instincts at all times, and all will be well.
Also born on this date are: Lebron James, basketball player; Tiger Woods, golfer; Tyrese Gibson, singer; Davy Jones, singer and actor; Matt Lauer, television host; Meredith Vieira, television host; Michael Nesmith, musician and actor; Sandy Koufax, baseball player; Jack Lord, actor; Sean Hannity, talk show host; Rudyard Kipling, author and poet; Bo Diddley, musician; Patti Smith, singer-songwriter; Tracey Ullman, actress and comedian; Russ Tamblyn, actor; Bert Parks, television host.
