Born today, you are a powerful individual possessed of great inner strength and blessed with the willingness and ability to stand by your convictions, come what may. You will surely have many advantages in life, but your natural creativity and ability to think outside the box will combine to propel you straight to the top -- provided you choose a course in life that can lead to the top! You are sensitive and quick to feel what others are feeling, and while this can be quite a boon at times, at others it can prove a disadvantage, as you may actually suffer immensely when you empathize with those who are in dire distress.
You are likely to rub elbows with many of the "greats" while pursuing your professional goals, but you may never feel as though you belong in the same strata with them. Indeed, there are times when you actually feel somehow inferior to others in your line of work, no matter how successful you may become.
Also born on this date are: Amber Riley, singer and actress; Galileo Galilei, astronomer; Chris Farley, comedian; Matt Groening, cartoonist; Jane Seymour, actress; Susan B. Anthony, suffrage reformer; Harvey Korman, actor and comedian; Melissa Manchester, singer; Cesar Romero, actor; John Barrymore, actor; Christopher McDonald, actor; Claire Bloom, actress.
