Born today, you are a study in contradictions, and it is quite difficult for casual acquaintances to determine with any real confidence under what sign you were born. You seem to be one thing in the morning, another at night; one when relaxed, another under stress, and so on. It is indeed true that you possess a great many different traits that are recognized as belonging, in the main, to those born under other signs -- traits that are as different from one another as night and day. The greatest seeming conflict in your nature is that between your more sensitive side and your more aggressive one; you are proof that a person can be both of these in quick succession.
You are perhaps at your best under stress; when things transpire that throw others into a panic, you tend toward calm, rational decision-making that lets you stand out as one to be trusted in tough times. Your sense of humor, too, is vivid, surprising, and often disarming.
Also born on this date are: Lisa Marie Presley, singer; Pauly Shore, comedian; Sherilyn Fenn, actress; Brandon Lee, actor; Rick James, singer; Sherman Hemsley, actor; Don Everly, singer; Garrett Morris, comedian; Boris Yeltsin, Russian president; Clark Gable, actor; John Ford, filmmaker.
