Born today, you are likely to enjoy an early start to a long, eventful and, ultimately, quite lucrative career -- probably because someone saw in you remarkable potential and took you under his or her wing to see what could be made of it. Later in life, you will want to do the same thing for another, and it is only fair that you do so! You have what it takes to be a fine guide and mentor, the kind who can really make a difference in the lives of those who come under your tutelage. You can be rather strict and demanding, but that's a good thing! Those to whom you give your attention will know that you are doing so because something can come of it, and not simply to pass the time. Indeed, you pay little attention to those with little potential; only those with real talent and who are willing to work at it are worth your time and attention.
You are likely to have all sorts of people falling in love with you over and over again throughout your lifetime, whatever you do and wherever you go. You are almost certain to have one or two failed relationships from which you truly learn how to love -- and how to be loved. Indeed, the latter can be quite difficult for you at times.
Also born on this date are: Kate Winslet, actress; Bernie Mac, actor; Jesse Eisenberg, actor; Mario Lemieux, hockey player; Larry Fine, actor and comic; Karen Allen, actress; Guy Pearce, actor; Ray Kroc, entrepreneur; Allen Ludden, TV game show host; Steve Miller, musician; Chester A. Arthur, U.S. president; Glynis Johns, actress; Daniel Baldwin, actor; Donald Pleasence, actor.
