Born today, you are not likely to be good at a great many things, at least where professional aptitude is concerned; it may, in fact, take you quite a while to determine just what your niche is and where your talents really lie. You must be ready to endure a great deal of failure and hardship as you make your way to that one endeavor that is likely to satisfy you. During your youth, you will almost certainly immerse yourself in many occupations, only to discover that they are not for you. Only later in life, when the stars play their hand, will you appear to stumble on that one thing you were "born" to do. And what is that?
Certainly, you are drawn to those endeavors that require you to stand alone, to endure hardship and prevail, to embrace tradition while at the same time exploring new ways of doing things. Your autonomy is very important to you, and you are at your best when you are calling the shots. Success may well come to you all at once.
Also born on this date are: Oksana Baiul, Olympic figure skater; Lisa Bonet, actress; Martha Plimpton, actress; Burgess Meredith, actor.
