Born today, you know better than to rely on only one kind of endeavor to sustain you through life. You understand that success varies sometimes from day to day, and that you cannot count on maintaining the same high level of performance at all times. You also recognize that your interests are likely to change and evolve, requiring you to forge a new path for yourself, perhaps many times. The answer for you, then, is flexibility, and the willingness to pursue options as they arise. You often find that surprises can yield the greatest enjoyment -- and practical reward.
You may be the first to do many things in your lifetime, as you are always willing and eager to take the lead and walk several paces ahead of the crowd. You don't always know what you're looking for, but you are confident that when you find it, you'll know it! All you must guard against is overconfidence and arrogance, which are anathema to your growth and progress.
Also born on this date are: Julianne Hough, dancer; Carlos Santana, guitarist; Kim Carnes, singer; Natalie Wood, actress; Omar Epps, actor; Gisele Bundchen, model; Sandra Oh, actress; Sir Edmund Hillary, mountaineer; Gregor Mendel, scientist; Diana Rigg, actress; Reed Diamond, actor; Petrarch, poet.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're going to have to do more than advertise if you want others to believe that you're the right one for a certain job. Talk is cheap!
