Born today, you are a rather adventurous individual, and though you may not be the type to put yourself in harm's way, you will pursue those endeavors that have rarely been pursued before by others. You may have one or two unusual talents that will win you the attention of someone important -- and that person is likely to give you the opportunity to make the most of yourself in the professional arena. The key, of course, is to retain your adventurous spirit at all times.
You can be quite private, and when that privacy is threatened, you can become quite defensive -- lashing out at anyone you perceive as a threat, even if that perception is entirely false. When you have hurt or offended someone else, it is important to make amends as quickly as possible.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jackson, singer and entertainer; Robin Leach, TV personality; William Friedkin, director; Elliott Gould, actor; Charlie "Bird" Parker, musician; Isabel Sanford, actress and comedian; Ingrid Bergman, actress.
