Born today, you are no stranger to adversity, but you never let any kind of challenge get you down. Rather, you are the kind of person to find the greatest strength under the most formidable of circumstances. A situation that might crush others is just what you need to compel you to be your best. You are likely to know precisely what you are meant to do in life, and you are very comfortable with the idea of having a destiny to fulfill. Though you are not one to enjoy doing what you are told simply for the sake of it, you will surely do what you know you must in order to prevail in good times and bad. You are never daunted by difficulty! This doesn't mean, however, that you cannot enjoy the easier times; on the contrary, you work all the harder to earn them.
Also born on this date are: Olivia Newton-John, singer and actress; Serena Williams, tennis player; James Caviezel, actor; T.S. Eliot, poet; Linda Hamilton, actress; George Gershwin, composer; Kent McCord, actor; Jack LaLanne, fitness guru.
You know how to solve all kinds of problems, and your ability to remain flexible in all kinds of situations will surely prove advantageous to you throughout your lifetime. You love feeling the wind in your hair -- figuratively, if not literally. You enjoy doing good things for people -- but especially those in your inner circle.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to receive a great deal of valuable information that you can put to use almost immediately. Don't overstate your case, however.
