Born today, you are a positive, bright and progressive individual for whom the past is a guideline only -- for you are certain to do your own thing in your own way as you move forward eagerly into the future. You have a way of identifying what it is you want quickly and accurately -- and of going after it with such confidence that you are all but guaranteed of acquiring it sooner or later. You enjoy learning all manner of lessons, but you don't want to suffer in the process; thus, you try your best to keep things light and buoyant as much as possible, to go through life with a sense of humor and a smile on your face.
Also born on this date are: Christina Aguilera, singer; Katie Holmes, actress; "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, actor and former wrestler; Brad Pitt, actor; Leonard Maltin, film critic; Steven Spielberg, filmmaker.
You have an interesting combination of innocence and experience. You seem both naive and worldly -- and this may well give you a distinct advantage over others. When it comes to romance, you want things to be fiery, creative and committed.
