Born today, you are confident, and though you see nothing wrong with that whatsoever there are those who will dismiss you as too self-serving and overly egotistical for your own good -- or theirs, for that matter. It is absolutely essential that you associate with those who understand where your confidence comes from. Despite the high opinion you have of yourself, you’re not often one to compare yourself with others. Indeed, that is the secret to your entire life’s success: You refuse to judge yourself by what others are like, or others in comparison to you. This keeps you realistic and fair in almost all things.
When it comes to love, however, you can often be more concerned with what you are getting out of a relationship than with what you are putting into it -- and that’s going to be the cause of a good deal of personal conflict in your life. The truth is that this way of thinking is a sign that you’ve simply not yet met the right person!
Also born on this date are: Steven Wright, comedian; Tom Hulce, actor; Dave Brubeck, musician; Agnes Moorehead, actress; Ira Gershwin, lyricist; Lynn Fontanne, actress.
