Born today, you are likely to burst on the scene in such a fashion that your success is all but assured, and you may well make such an important and lasting impact on your chosen field that you will be remembered for generations to come for doing what no one had done before you. The question, however, is: When will this take place? While you are young and just making your way in the world? Or when you are older and wiser, ready to face the burdens that come with such sudden success and notoriety? There are, of course, pros and cons associated with each scenario, and there is likely little you can do to determine which path you will -- or did -- take. That is up to the stars -- as is the determination of which talents will be yours to develop and hone to perfection.
Also born on this date are: Forest Whitaker, actor; Linda Ronstadt, singer; Diane Kruger, actress; Rembrandt, painter; Jesse Ventura, wrestler and politician; Alex Karras, football player and actor; Brigitte Nielsen, actress; Clement Moore, author and poet; Jan-Michael Vincent, actor; Kim Alexis, model; Lana Parrilla, actress.
Because so much in your life may be left to chance, you will no doubt choose to place a great deal of importance on relationships of all kinds. More important than what you do -- or when -- is whom you do it with, and why. You will always pick your friends and partners with great care.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't want to look away for too long, lest you miss the very thing that you wanted to see! Don't let yourself become distracted.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to follow someone's progress very carefully, as it will give you much information about what lies ahead of you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be careful what you're willing to give away. Give too much, and others will think that they can ask anything of you at any time.
