Born today, you are never one to measure your success through the eyes of another; rather, you judge your own performance, personally and professionally, according to a scale that is of your own making -- and only you will ever know if you are truly satisfying yourself and earning contentment with the work you do. You can enjoy your own company at work, rest or play, and often prefer it over the company of others.
You are multitalented, and though you will surely enjoy tremendous professional success, it is very likely one or two hobbies that will give you the greatest satisfaction in life. Indeed, you are likely to work so that you can afford to play -- and you are able to play harder than most others work! Once committed to an endeavor, you will stick to it to the bitter end.
Also born on this date are: Denzel Washington, actor; Dame Maggie Smith, actress; John Legend, singer; Seth Meyers, actor and comic; Woodrow Wilson, U.S. president; Sienna Miller, actress; Nichelle Nichols, actress; Martin Milner, actor; Earl Hines, jazz musician.
