Born today, you are likely to enjoy tremendous longevity in the career of your choice -- but that doesn't necessarily mean you will inevitably rise to the top. On the contrary, you may be one of those who works tirelessly behind the scenes, in the shadows, content to go unnoticed much of the time. Still, when it is your turn to be in the spotlight, you will want to be ready, and so you will train yourself accordingly and wait patiently for your turn to come.
You cherish your privacy and personal life, and you will do all you can to protect those whom you love from the intrusion of those who are curious about you and the way you live. You love very deeply.
Also born on this date are: Jordin Sparks, singer; Ralph Fiennes, actor; Robin Gibb, singer; Maurice Gibb, singer; Diane Sawyer, news reporter and anchorwoman; Barbara Billingsley, actress; Hector Elizondo, actor.
