Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous grace and style, and you know how to use both to your advantage -- even though as a child you likely suffered from inordinate awkwardness! In fact, there is a part of you that may always be that awkward child. As you grow older, you will embrace that side of your character, and it will give you a special kind of confidence that is rare and quite valuable in all aspects of your daily life. You avoid taking yourself so seriously that you are unable to laugh at yourself; you know just how ridiculous you can be at times -- and you love it!
Also born on this date are: Maya Rudolph, actress and comedian; Jonathan Rhys Meyers, actor; Jerry Van Dyke, actor; Betty Thomas, actress; Taylor Schilling, actress; Peggy Fleming, Olympic figure skater; Norman Lear, television producer; Maureen McGovern, singer; Christopher Dean, Olympic figure skater; Johann Bernoulli, physicist; Keenan Wynn, actor; Leo Durocher, baseball manager.
You are always curious about the world around you and the people in it, and you are driven to learn as much as you can about what makes the world turn and other people tick. You value experience above book learning, though you are likely to do quite well in an academic setting. You enjoy being introduced to new things.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're afraid that things may cool down between you and a loved one if you make plans that may take you out of town. Talk openly about this!
