Born today, you know what is right, you know what is wrong and you know when you have crossed the line from the former to the latter -- and what to do about it when this occurs. Though you are certainly not a hardliner or prudish in any way, you do expect to live your life according to a certain set of principles that have been handed down to you from those who have gone before. You're never likely to forget who they were, what they did and why they are so important to you. You will always have your heritage firmly in mind as you try to break new ground and do new things; you take what has been done before and make it better simply by putting your personal stamp on it. Of course, this stamp is the product of much study and hard work -- you're not the kind to think you can do a thing well without fully applying yourself.
No matter how confident you were in your youth, after a taste of success you're likely to go through at least one period when you want to shake things up a little, to change who you are and what you do. This will be only so successful, for you cannot change completely -- nor would you want to!
Also born on this date are: Buddy Holly, singer; Queen Elizabeth I of Great Britain; Shannon Elizabeth, model and actress; Eazy-E, rapper; Jennifer Egan, author; Diane Warren, songwriter; Michael Feinstein, singer and pianist; Corbin Bernsen, actor; Evan Rachel Wood, actress; Toby Jones, actor; Chrissie Hynde, singer; Julie Kavner, actress; Tom Everett Scott, actor; Elia Kazan, director.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're not in any mood to state things unequivocally. It's important that you have some wiggle room, no matter what transpires.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Events are likely to involve you in ways you had not anticipated. You may find yourself redoing something you first did long ago.
