Born today, you are an individual who both seeks excitement -- almost at every turn -- and provides excitement to others. You are willing to do almost anything to spice up your day, and in the process you will almost certainly add a great deal of spice to the lives of those who come in contact with you, even indirectly. Indeed, a person doesn't have to do what you are doing to have that adventurous and exciting feeling rub off. No, just being around you is often enough, so there are a great many individuals who enjoy simply observing you in action. You are not a reckless individual, but you do try to live each and every day to the fullest.
You know how to express yourself honestly and eloquently; when you speak, you can be sure that others will stop and listen to what you have to say. Success with the written word may be more elusive, but every now and then, you may put down your thoughts in a way that is truly memorable.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Hicks, singer; Toni Braxton, singer; Simon Cowell, producer and critic; Yo-Yo Ma, cellist; Vladimir Putin, Russian president; John Mellencamp, rocker; Bishop Desmond Tutu, equal rights advocate; June Allyson, actress; Niels Bohr, atomic physicist.
