Born today, you can be rather self-indulgent at times. Although you are often quite able to keep this aspect of your personality strictly under control, it can prove rather dangerous for you when you are not. When you really let yourself go, you may suffer physically, mentally and psychologically, and find it difficult to hang on to the things for which you have previously worked so hard. You like the finer things in life, and you will do all you can to have what you desire. You're sure to work hard to further this personal cause. You are able to do a few things that most others cannot do.
You are eager to go it alone; even at an early age you will show signs of an independent spirit that exceeds that of most others born under your sign. Indeed, you don't even like it when others have something to teach you; you prefer to learn things on your own through trial and error, a method that doesn't threaten your sense of autonomy.
Also born on this date are: Tiffany, singer; Kelly Ripa, actress, TV hostess; Lorraine Bracco, actress; Sting, singer and songwriter; Annie Leibovitz, photographer; Donna Karan, designer; Don McLean, singer and songwriter; Rex Reed, film critic; Bud Abbot, actor and comedian; Groucho Marx, actor and comedian; Mahatma Gandhi, activist.
