Born today, you are likely to make quite a splash when you are still remarkably young, attracting all kinds of attention and garnering all sorts of recognition and reward for your endeavors and accomplishments. You must never let this go to your head, however, for there is bigger and better to come if you are willing to work ever harder and dedicate yourself completely whenever a new opportunity arises. You have within you the ability to work harder and longer than anyone else, as well as the desire to be the best that you can be. You truly can achieve anything that is within the realm of possibility. In other words, you can have it all, provided you never let yourself slack off or consider yourself entitled to rewards and recognition that you did not actively earn.
You never underestimate the importance of timing and luck in your life. Indeed, you willingly accept the fact that, without either, you would not be who you are -- but then, who would be? Like so many other Cancer natives, you feel at times that you've simply stumbled onto good fortune, but you also know how to take full advantage of it when you do.
Also born on this date are: Ringo Starr, singer and musician; Michelle Kwan, Olympic figure skater; Kirsten Vangsness, actress; Satchel Paige, baseball player; Jorja Fox, actress; Doc Severinsen, musician; David McCullough, historian; George Cukor, director; Billy Campbell, actor; Robert Heinlein, author; Cree Summer, actress.
