Born today, you are a creative individual, but you know full well that creativity alone is not enough to win you lasting admiration or any degree of measurable success. You must choose a line of endeavor that allows you to develop your creativity to the fullest and limit distractions to a minimum so you make the best, most efficient use of time available to you at any given moment -- especially when your career is in the developmental stages.
You are also likely to enjoy quite a successful love life, but you have a decision to make: Do you want to enjoy any and all opportunities for love and romance, or do you want to pursue one single lasting relationship? This choice may define your life -- and your exploration of all things related to the heart may begin at quite a young age.
Also born on this date are: Rupert Grint, actor; Dave Chappelle, comedian; Stephen Fry, actor and comedian; Cal Ripken Jr., baseball player; Yasser Arafat, Palestinian leader; Steve Guttenberg, actor; Marlee Matlin, actress.
