Born today, you are one of the most observant individuals born under your sign, and if you cultivate this ability as much as possible throughout your lifetime, it will give you a rare insight and wisdom that, in turn, will give you many advantages in life. Even when you are quite young, however, you seem to know and understand things that may elude those much older than yourself; you seem to have your finger on the pulse of humanity and can explain even mankind's most unusual, perverse and destructive behavior.
There are times when you let your brain do too much of the work and avoid letting your heart become involved -- and this kind of imbalance can be unfair to others and to yourself as well. If you want to be truly happy, you must engage your heart as well as your head; this kind of balance is necessary to your health and well-being.
Also born on this date are: Chris Kattan, comedian; Evander Holyfield, boxer; Divine, female impersonator; John Lithgow, actor; Peter Max, artist; Robert Reed, actor; John Le Carre, author; Jack Anderson, columnist.
