Born today, you harbor an innate sensitivity that is very much a part of everything you do, informs every action you take, and dictates how you will relate to all those around you -- friends, loved ones, co-workers, fans and critics. You feel things deeply, and you have an abiding sense of fairness; you will go out of your way to avoid doing anything that even remotely seems to be unkind or thoughtless. Still, you are able to manage your affairs in a progressive, productive fashion, and you're able to use your sensitivity to your advantage, while others with your makeup might simply become overly passive, even sheepish.
What you accomplish in the professional arena is likely to bring you a great deal of confidence in your private life: The better you are doing on the job, the better you are doing in your personal affairs. You know how to combine business and pleasure in ways that others cannot match.
Also born on this date are: Gloria Vanderbilt, designer; Sandy Duncan, actress; Patty Hearst, heiress; Cindy Crawford, model; Robert Altman, filmmaker; Sidney Poitier, actor; Ansel Adams, photographer.
