Born today, you are not the kind to turn away from the problems that you may have caused, or leave messes in your wake without doing everything you can to clean them up. You are, if nothing else, a reliable and responsible individual -- and you insist that those around you be the same. You can be quite judgmental when you find that the difference between you and another are ideological. You are not as tolerant of those with other views as many born under your sign. You can expect conflict to arise again and again as a result -- and, consequently, you will learn to put out the fires of ideological differences before they get out of control.
Friends and family are important to you, always. You derive a great deal of strength, security, confidence and self-assurance from the consistency that relationships offer you in your life -- which may, in other ways, prove to be quite inconsistent! Whether rich or poor, you are likely to develop expensive tastes.
Also born on this date are: Jake Gyllenhaal, actor; Alyssa Milano, actress; Criss Angel, illusionist; Jennifer Beals, actress; Robert Urich, actor; Tim Reid, actor.
