Born today, you are a model of style, grace, confidence and skill -- and yet there are times when that little monster of insecurity and doubt rears its ugly head and causes you moments of frustration and delay. Fortunately, you have learned to navigate those episodes with a certain level of anticipation and expertise -- the same skills that allow you to succeed at so many of your chosen endeavors. You know how to take advantage of even a fleeting opportunity, and it can never be said that you will sit back and watch your one chance pass you by -- though you are likely destined to enjoy far more than one chance when all is said and done! You like working with others, though you do have your favorite collaborators.
You may fool others into thinking that you are rootless and without any real sense of what is possible -- but this is hardly the case. You are highly creative, it is true, but your imaginings are always bound to a healthy sense of reality. You don't build castles in the air!
Also born on this date are: Melissa Gilbert, actress; Beth Henley, playwright; Toni Tennille, singer and songwriter; Enrique Iglesias, singer; Peter Benchley, author; Ricky Nelson, singer and actor; Harry S. Truman, U.S. president.
