Born today, you are determined to make your dreams come true, and you will work tirelessly, day in and day out, often burning the candle at both ends, to see that you satisfy your own desires and expectations and get the results you are after in all things. That's quite a tall order, however, and though you recognize that not every endeavor is likely to turn out well, you do not discount the possibility, for it is your optimism and positive spirit that keep you going -- especially when you are facing long odds.
You are no stranger to the unusual, unorthodox, unique or bizarre, but it is important for you to surround yourself with those who enjoy the singular as much as you do. Not for you the sort of routine ambitions that drive most mere mortals! On the contrary, you are drawn to that which is exceptional -- whether or not it is possible.
Also born on this date are: Lars Ulrich, drummer; Ozzie Smith, baseball player; Phil Spector, record producer; John Walsh, TV host; Steve Allen, writer, actor, comedian; Richard Widmark, actor.
