Born today, you are a lively, quick and sometimes contentious individual -- but you love to have fun more than anything. You sometimes behave in ways that are simply inexplicable to others, and you know how to use the element of surprise very much to your advantage, in both personal pursuits and professional endeavors. You are positive, ambitious and confident that you can make your dreams come true -- and as you progress through life you will be granted numerous opportunities to prove that you are so capable. You don't need the approval of others, but you do enjoy it, and will seek it out in situations that can provide you an elegant sufficiency of it.
You are a tolerant individual, never one to judge someone without the evidence to back up your views. You will help others rather than hinder them, and if you can be of no practical help, you will surely offer moral support. The truth is that you enjoy getting along with people.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Hicks, singer; Toni Braxton, singer; Simon Cowell, producer, critic; Yo-Yo Ma, cellist; Vladimir Putin, Russian president; John Mellencamp, rocker; Bishop Desmond Tutu, equal rights advocate; June Allyson, actress; Niels Bohr, atomic physicist.
