Born today, you have a great deal of charm, and you add sparkling excitement to almost any social occasion. Indeed, others long for your company, and you usually find yourself surrounded by admirers of one kind or another. What many may not know, however, is that you have a current of energy and passion that flows beneath the surface that informs almost everything you do, and you are often driven to challenge yourself in new ways, day after day. You are ambitious and hardworking, and you never seem to find yourself in a situation that is not of your making. You have a way of remaining in control, even when circumstances do not favor your endeavors.
You are a free spirit of sorts, though you are not one of those to scoff at authority or challenge it in any overt way -- unless, of course, doing so becomes absolutely necessary to your success or survival. You enjoy the company of those who are different from yourself.
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, professor; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater.
