Born today, you know how to get things done, and you're determined to do as much as possible throughout your lifetime. You're never content with sitting on the sidelines; you want to be playing the game in a fully committed, hands-on sort of way. Whether you are calling the plays or merely implementing them matters little; you simply want to be a participant each and every day. You may not know what you want to be when you grow up, but you seem able to do many things. As an adult, your single greatest opportunity may arise completely by accident, but it is likely to lead to great things for which you can certainly be remembered.
Just as you want to be always on the go, you can grow quickly impatient with those who seem to be happy doing little or nothing. The worst case, of course, is someone who complains again and again about what is happening to him -- for that is a sign of someone who has relinquished control over his own life.
Also born on this date are: Dean Cain, actor; J.K. Rowling, author, creator of "Harry Potter"; Wesley Snipes, actor; Evonne Goolagong, tennis player; Geraldine Chaplin, actress; Ted Cassidy, actor; Curt Gowdy, sportscaster.
