Born today, you are prone to bouts of insecurity and self-doubt, but these are rarely if ever truly debilitating -- though they may slow you down a bit from time to time. You are a strong character with a deeply sown work ethic; you're not the kind to let up simply because you are feeling somehow uncertain about what you are doing, or why. You aren't the kind to compare yourself or your accomplishments to others. You go about your business knowing that to keep busy is, itself, something to be proud of; you do not feel the need to engage in some kind of "competition" with rivals that are only illusory.
You insist on keeping your private life just that -- private. Even though your career might bring you, on occasion, into the public eye, you never let yourself become fodder for the rumor mill. You sometimes prefer a quiet night at home to an evening out with friends.
Also born on this date are: Kirsten Dunst, actress; Carl Gustav XVI, King of Sweden; Jill Clayburgh, actress; Burt Young, actor; Willie Nelson, singer; Cloris Leachman, actress; Queen Juliana of the Netherlands; Eve Arden, actress.
