Born today, you are quite adventurous, and you are likely to head off on the adventure of a lifetime at a very early age -- regardless of the dangers you might encounter along the way. You are not foolhardy; you know how to take necessary precautions, and you are always careful to equip yourself for whatever journey you are about to take. Still, you may face countless risks in both your personal life and your professional affairs as a result of your free and fearless spirit. Not only do you seek out the unusual, but you know how to turn the mundane into something quite special -- for yourself and others. Life is too short to be boring!
You seek personal contentment and professional success, and you don't believe that they are incompatible at all. Indeed, you are confident that the former can make the latter all the more possible -- and vice versa. You know that money cannot buy love -- but you also know that it can solve a host of daily problems!
Also born on this date are: Charlize Theron, actress; David Duchovny, actor; Billie Burke, actress; Tobin Bell, actor; Wayne Knight, actor; Louis Leakey, anthropologist; Garrison Keillor, writer and radio personality; John Glover, actor; Carl Switzer, actor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your unique style will be on display throughout the day, and it may even be able to open doors for you as you seek a course of advancement.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll enjoy a new sense of purpose. Give someone a word of advice when you can -- he or she will return the favor when the time comes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your day is likely to progress in a cyclic fashion, which explains why you will seem to experience the same events more than once.
