Born today, you are able to inspire others with what you know, what you do and what you say; you have a way with words and a certain flair when you are "in the groove" that actually makes people stop what they are doing and watch you in action. You have a natural grace and beauty that spring from the inside, which ensures that they will be far more lasting -- and meaningful -- than any mere surface beauty. You know a good idea when you hear one, and you're always willing to give it a try -- and give the credit where credit is due when the time comes. You are the kind to write greeting cards that others keep for years, and even what you say to another in passing can carry a great deal of meaning.
You aren't one to put all your eggs into one basket; you appreciate the importance of diversification in all things, and you will almost always have more than one iron in the fire at any given time. You have seemingly endless stores of energy -- though you must never forget that even you, too, need your rest occasionally!
Also born on this date are: Ann-Margret, actress, singer, entertainer; Penelope Cruz, actress; Jay Leno, comedian, late-night TV host; Lionel Barrymore, actor; Harper Lee, author; James Monroe, U.S. president.
