Born today, you may not have been endowed with all the natural talent in the world, but you make up for any shortcoming in that area with an iron will and the desire to be the best -- no matter what it is you are doing. Indeed, you are willing to put your heart and soul into any endeavor, and you will work long and hard to better yourself and become the best that you can be. If there's a competitive aspect involved, all the better -- for you are determined to rise to the top and claim your prize as the master of your particular field. When in the thick of things, you can be quite fierce and uncompromising; but in your private life, you tend to be rather quiet, stylish, well-mannered and easygoing.
You may, at some point, experience something that challenges your whole way of looking at the world. After that, nothing is likely to be the same. You may, in fact, go so far as to choose another path entirely, either professionally or personally -- or both.
Also born on this date are: Dwayne Johnson, wrestler and actor; David Beckham, soccer player; Engelbert Humperdinck, singer; Christine Baranski, actress; Manfred von Richtofen, pilot; Theodore Bikel, actor; David Suchet, actor; Hedda Hopper, columnist; Larry Gatlin, singer; Benjamin Spock, pediatrician.
