Born today, you are one of those fastidious individuals who likes things a certain way -- and when they do not conform to your desires and tastes you can become rather erratic in your behavior. The truth is this: You want things your way, and you're not always willing to be as flexible as you must be in order to get along in the world. You despise disorder, and you will do all you can to see that your own corner of the world is arranged just so -- and woe to anyone who criticizes you for this!
Though you are prone to frustration and depression, you are able to work through such emotional turbulence and get things done -- though perhaps not at peak efficiency or creativity. You cherish your privacy, and you're not one to share your innermost feelings -- good or bad -- with just anyone.
Also born on this date are: C. Thomas Howell, actor; Larry Bird, basketball player; Tom Waits, singer, actor; Johnny Bench, baseball player; Ellen Burstyn, actress.
