Born today, you are one of the most self-concerned individuals born under your sign, and whether or not you like it, the whole world will appear to you as a foil against which you can and will compare yourself in all things. Is this healthy? Sometimes yes, and sometimes no, and when it isn't you can become quite moody, burdened with an inferior sense of yourself that is hard to shake.
Also born on this date are: Sylvia Plath, writer and poet; Nanette Fabray, singer; Roy Lichtenstein, artist; Simon Le Bon, singer; John Cleese, actor and comedian; Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dylan Thomas, poet.
When you are at your best, you are a force of nature, and you will stop at nothing to feed your needs, satisfy your desires and prove yourself to all those who may take an interest in you and your affairs. While not always one to take an interest in others, you do serve as a positive example to many -- and you take this role very seriously.
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.
