Born today, you will have several traits and talents that will be quite noticeable to others even at a very early age -- and these will surely prove to be profitable as you make your way in the professional world. Follow your instincts and be true to yourself, and you can surely enjoy the kind of success that comes to only a few -- especially considering that you are likely to choose a line of work in which your labors are not always rewarded. You, however, are bound to be rewarded -- not only for your efforts, but also for your ability to inspire others and treat them fairly, not to mention your willingness to help out when given the chance. You are generous with your time and money, and you will do all you can to give those around you a boost -- personally or professionally.
You may sometimes come off as cocky, but there is no denying that your native confidence is an important part of who you are. Anyone who reacts negatively to it in any way is revealing more about him- or herself than about you. It is likely, in fact, that such naysayers simply cannot match you or keep up with you -- and so they must find something to criticize.
Also born on this date are: Forest Whitaker, actor; Linda Ronstadt, singer; Diane Kruger, actress; Rembrandt, painter; Jesse Ventura, wrestler and politician; Alex Karras, football player and actor; Brigitte Nielsen, actress; Clement Moore, author and poet; Jan-Michael Vincent, actor; Kim Alexis, model; Scott Foley, actor; Brian Austin Green, actor; Lana Parrilla, actress.
