Born today, you are one of those serious, down-to-earth individuals who likes to deal in hard and fast reality. You have what it takes to solve all manner of problems, and to address the kinds of issues that affect most individuals around you -- but you do so in a way that is based upon reality, and that works with hard-and-fast truths that are unequivocal and certain. You know how the world works, and even when things are not working in a way that is conducive to your own success, you keep at it, confident that things will change.
Beneath the surface, you may harbor unusual feelings, tendencies and tastes. This is part of your private life, however, and only those who know you best are aware of anything unusual about you that may lurk beneath the surface. You are quite adept at hiding things about yourself that you don't want others to know.
Also born on this date are: Emmitt Smith, football player; James Mason, actor; Joseph Cotten, actor.
