Born today, you are a natural problem-solver, one who knows how to approach a complicated situation in such a way that solutions seem to present themselves to you naturally, as a matter of course. The problem, however, is that you are also something of a problem creator; that is, the way you go about this encourages the complication of situations and the creation of new problems, so it is a very good thing that you also know how to solve them in your turn! You know how to create things, and, like anyone else, you know how to destroy things, but in you the balance is one that contributes to your ability to build that which is lasting and memorable.
You are, to many, a seeming contradiction -- but perhaps that is simply because you are not driven to be consistent for any reason. You follow your instincts as often as possible, and if they lead you down unusual roads -- or even two different roads simultaneously -- so be it!
Also born on this date are: Sylvia Plath, writer and poet; Nanette Fabray, singer; Roy Lichtenstein, artist; Simon Le Bon, singer; John Cleese, actor and comedian; Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dylan Thomas, poet.
