Born today, you are never afraid to press forward and promote your agenda in new and untried ways, as you are confident that it will not only bring you the excitement and hard work upon which you thrive, but also the success you feel you deserve. You are also never afraid, however, to look to the past for inspiration; you study what has gone before and build upon what others have done to create something entirely new -- and are, in most cases, quite successful.
You are both a dreamer and a doer, and you know how to turn your dreams into reality. You are never afraid of hard work -- in both the professional arena and your personal affairs.
Also born on this date are: Tia Carrere, actress; Cuba Gooding Jr., actor; Taye Diggs, actor; Kate Bosworth, actress; Isaac Asimov, author; Paz Vega, actress; Jack Hanna, zookeeper and animal expert.
