Born today, you are an energetic and forward-thinking individual, but you know well enough to remain connected to the past -- at least to such an extent that you can learn from what has gone before and apply those lessons to what you do today and will do tomorrow and in the days to come. You are upstanding and genuine in all that you say and do; to be untrue to yourself would be the greatest tragedy as far as you are concerned -- and there is no excuse for it!
Your ability to anticipate what lies around the next corner is likely unmatched by anyone else born under your sign, and this is a skill you put to good use in all things -- but most importantly in your personal affairs.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Trainor, actor; Emma Lee Bunton, singer; Geena Davis, actress; Mac Davis, actor and singer; Hakeem Olajuwon, basketball player; Jack Nicklaus, golfer; Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Confederate military leader.
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.
