Born today, you are not always what you seem to be, for there are simply so many facets to your brilliant and complex personality that, at any given time, you can show off only a select few characteristics to the world at large. When it comes to professional accomplishments, you have what it takes to claim a very large piece of the pie for yourself -- though this is likely to take quite a long time. While you may settle on a particular career path early in life, the success you seek is not likely to be yours until many years later. The development of your talent is most important, and early success may actually stunt your professional growth. You are not impatient, however, and taking the long view will work in your favor at all times.
Also born on this date are: Harrison Ford, actor; Sir Patrick Stewart, actor; Julius Caesar, Roman emperor; Yadier Molina, baseball player; Cheech Marin, actor and comedian; Bob Crane, actor; Robert Forster, actor; Cameron Crowe, filmmaker; Paul Prudhomme, celebrity chef; Ken Jeong, comedian and actor; Tom Kenny, voice actor and screenwriter; Didi Conn, actress.
You may embrace beliefs that are not commonplace, orthodox, conventional or widely accepted by others. You see the world in stark contrasts, and you will often react quite emotionally to what happens around you. The good news is that you can use these events to fuel your personal and professional efforts. You understand that you are a product of the world in which you live.
