Born today, you are sometimes far more reactive than you need to be. As a result, you may actually be the cause of much that is disruptive or otherwise undesirable in your own life. Learn to tone it down somewhat and face things with a certain amount of cultivated stoicism. You will then be able to maintain a proper balance in your life without being at the mercy of your emotions. Like all good Cancer natives, you can be something of a homebody, preferring your own comfortable native surroundings to anyplace else on Earth -- but you know that you must expose yourself to the real world now and then.
Your energy and dedication are noteworthy, and others often try to approach their own lives as they imagine you would. Indeed, others think that you are far more fascinating than you do, and there are times in which you would very much like to be the person that others think you are!
Also born on this date are: Laura Branigan, vocalist; Tom Cruise, actor and producer; George M. Cohan, composer and entertainer; Tom Stoppard, playwright; Franz Kafka, author.
