Born today, you may be considered by some to be something of a baby, for you do not like to be hemmed-in in any way. When you are, you can be quite noisy in your objections -- in fact, you have been known to throw a tantrum when you feel really trapped. The truth is that you must learn to do what you are told if you are going to make your way in the world, but that doesn't mean, of course, that you ever have to learn to like it! Doing something and liking it are two very different things, as you well know. The trick, for you, will be learning to do a thing well -- like following orders -- while still not liking it one bit.
You have a tendency to think that the grass is indeed greener on the other side of the fence. Put another way, you may go through life convinced that the best times are behind you when in fact you are almost certain to enjoy tremendous highs around any one of the next few corners.
Also born on this date are: Lisa Rinna, actress; Richie Sambora, musician; Suzanne Vega, singer; Mark Lester, actor and director; Leon Spinks, boxer; Giorgio Armani, fashion designer; Tab Hunter, actor; Yul Brynner, actor; E.B. White, writer; John Quincy Adams, U.S. president.
