Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Author: Paulo Coelho

According to Zodiac, you are a Virgo, born on AUGUST 24th, which is exactly the day and month when your literary idol, Jorge Luis Borges, had been born. Do you see in this coincidence any symbol, any factor determining you from the hour of your birth to become a writer?
Although I respect astrology, I think that it suggests, not determines what will you be. As for Borges, I discovered his birthday date long after I’ve start dreaming of becoming a writer. I do believe that you have a personal destiny to fulfill & you will find it out, regardless of the circumstances.
