Born today, you are never too far from the action. Even when you choose to be alone, you keep your eyes open, your ear to the ground and your awareness keenly tuned to the deeds of those around you who are most active and involved. You never like to be in a position that requires you to catch up; rather, you prefer to be in the know. This will surely give you the advantage more often than not. You have a positive outlook, and the energy and drive you need to remain at the forefront of any worthwhile endeavor. Indeed, you can most often be found far ahead of the pack, forging a path that others will surely follow.
You are playful and fun-loving, and you can make a game out of almost anything. Remember that "almost," however! There are certain issues and certain situations that bring out your serious nature. When you are engaged in such a way, you will surely work tirelessly to see things come out your way.
Also born on this date are: Nikki Sixx, musician and author; Mo'Nique, actress and comedian; Jermaine Jackson, singer; John Kerry, politician; Rita Moreno, entertainer; Brenda Lee, singer; Mos Def, actor, rapper and activist; Donna Mills, actress; Max Born, physicist; Teri Garr, actress; Fiorello La Guardia, New York City mayor.
