HOROSCOPE

Your natural abilities will give you several career opportunities to explore, although narrowing your selections is always a challenge. You might enjoy working in the media, or at least as a spokesperson for your company, profession or a community group that is near and dear to your heart. If you express yourself artistically, the work will be intricate, but possibly not so heart-felt. You can get an idea of what this effect is like by listening to the lyrical, yet reserved singing of Stevie Nicks or the cool-but-distant acting style of John Wayne, who were also born on this day.
