Born today, you have a unique way of looking at the world, a habit that is likely to lead you to the door of opportunity and achievement again and again throughout your life. This suggests that your personality and character are the greatest contributors to your eventual success. Indeed, that is very much the case, though you do have a great deal of natural talent -- and you can also credit good luck when examining the trajectory of your life. Personality, talent and luck -- these are yours, surely, but there is something else that sets you apart: a willingness to explore what has never been explored, to do what has never been done and to go where few others have ever gone. It is your quest for the new that drives you!
You know how to make the impossible possible. For this reason, others are likely to flock to you in times of trouble, hungry for solutions to their problems. You cannot do everything, however, and even you must sometimes admit that certain things are truly impossible and beyond your considerable grasp.
Also born on this date are: Louis Braille, inventor; Sterling Holloway, actor; Don Shula, football coach; Michael Stipe, singer; Dyan Cannon, actress; Patty Loveless, singer; Julia Ormond, actress; Dave Foley, actor and comedian; Augustus John, artist; Dot Jones, actress.
