Born today, you know how to bring out the best in those around you just as you demand only the best of yourself as well. You are known for continually evolving and improving. Your competitors are always in for a surprise when they think they have you pinned down in some way, for you are never likely to remain unchanged for long; you will shift your intentions and alter your methods so that no one is able to get the better of you. While self-doubt is certainly not one of your weaknesses, its opposite certainly can be; when you become overconfident you can be careless and make the kinds of mistakes that can keep you from living up to your true potential.
There are times when you may feel that you are letting yourself or others down, but this is merely an indication that you have become bored with the status quo and that change is on the horizon. You do all you can to present yourself well; when it comes to love and romance, you know how to play the game better than most.
Also born on this date are: Mary J. Blige, singer; Alexander Hamilton, U.S. statesman; Naomi Judd, singer; Amanda Peet, actress; Rod Taylor, actor; William James, philosopher; Alfonso Arau, actor; Diana Gabaldon, author; Grant Tinker, television producer; Clarence Clemons, saxophonist.
