Born today, you may have to endure a series of on-again/off-again cycles in your professional life that prove frustrating when you are "off" and quite exhilarating when you are "on." What you may not know at the outset, however, is that your "off" periods can provide you with invaluable time to stop, reset, relax and reflect -- so that when you return, you do so triumphantly, stronger and more capable than ever.
Also born on this date are: Shania Twain, singer; LeAnn Rimes, singer; Armie Hammer, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor; Luis Guzman, actor; Charles Boyer, actor.
Your allure is something else, and you can captivate members of both sexes with a smile and a well-timed look. You must be careful not to break too many hearts in this way, however, for it is likely that many will fall in love with you while you fall truly in love with no more than one person in your entire lifetime.
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.
