Born today, you rely on both personality and skill to make your way in the world. Which of these is more important at any given time depends on the circumstances at play and the situation you are facing. While it is always impressive to win the day based upon ability alone, you never begrudge yourself a victory that is won on the basis of personality! You understand that your character is an endowed gift, just as talent is, and it is therefore something to be used when appropriate to help make your way or secure your success. The trouble arises, of course, when your personality overshadows the quality of your work -- or, worse, when it enables you to do things halfway and still succeed. This is no good for you in the long run, as it can lead to long-term failure.
You are something of a visionary, and you will always try to make the unreal real or the impossible possible. What is it about making dreams come true that is so attractive to you? This desire does not, in itself, set you apart, but your ability to successfully do it so often surely does!
Also born on this date are: Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York; Penny Marshall, actress and director; Linda Lavin, actress; Emeril Lagasse, celebrity chef; Lee Iacocca, automotive executive; Mario Puzo, author; Dominic West, actor; Ginuwine, singer; Larry Miller, actor and comedian.
