Born today, you are creative, capable and always on the lookout for a new opportunity. Though you succeed more often than not, the fact is that you harbor certain doubts about your abilities, and you do not always embark on a new endeavor with the confidence that you should, given your overall capacity for accomplishment. What is it that keeps you from recognizing your talents and skills? When young, you may have grown up in the shadow of someone whom you very much admired and looked up to, and that may have instilled in you the belief that he or she was the one to soar to great heights. Still, there is no excuse for maintaining such a belief once you begin to enjoy success.
You tend to be soft-spoken and tolerant, and you consider all manner of perspectives and opinions to be just as valid as yours. You are capable of arguing both sides of an issue with a marked level of expertise, for you are not just opinionated, but knowledgeable about many key issues in life.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Suzanne Collins, author; Angie Harmon, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president; Eddie Fisher, singer; Jack Haley, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Norma Shearer, actress; Andrew Sullivan, author; Ian Anderson, singer and songwriter.
