Born today, you are nothing if not a survivor. You can put yourself through all manner of hardships and difficulties and come out stronger and better than ever before -- with a certain eagerness to do it again when given the chance. You can be sensitive and aggressive, forgiving and obstinate, generous and uncompromising -- depending on what is required of you in any given moment, or by any given situation.
There is a softness beneath the surface that belies any kind of hardness that you like to put on in the face of adversity -- a softness that may, at times, rise to the surface and let others know that you are, after all, merely human and subject to fears, doubts and uncertainties like anyone else.
Also born on this date are: Richard Gere, actor; Chris Tucker, actor; Van Morrison, singer; James Coburn, actor; Queen Raina of Jordan; Itzhak Perlman, violinist; Buddy Hackett, actor and comic; Debbie Gibson, singer; Maria Montessori, educator.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
