Born today, you are something of a visionary, and though you will always maintain ties to the past, you are always seeking to propel yourself and your endeavors into the future with new methods, techniques and ideas. You are so confident, in fact, that you would have no qualms about improving on a past master's work of art -- and because you are so bold and daring in your approach it is likely that others would recognize your contribution and not take you to task for "defacing" the original! Fortunately, you have such respect for tradition that you're not one to ruin another's work.
You don't always follow the most linear plans. There are times, indeed, in which you let your instincts determine what direction you will go -- and what goals you will pursue. Eventually, you develop a concrete notion of what you are truly after -- and how to get it!
Also born on this date are: Peter Jackson, film director; John Candy, actor and comedian; Jane Pauley, journalist; Deidre Hall, actress; David Ogden Stiers, actor; Michael Landon, actor and producer.
