Born today, you thrive on being at the center of the action, but this doesn't mean you have to play a leading role at all times. On the contrary, you understand the importance of those who lend assistance in supporting positions. When fate decrees it, you can perform quite well assisting those who are in the spotlight or who are taking the greater share of responsibility for the success or failure of an endeavor. What is important to you is that you are involved. You will seek out the things that engage your heart and mind and challenge you physically, as well. You are never one to back away from a challenge, but you are not a foolhardy risk-taker, either.
You have such a strong personality that you must take care that your accomplishments are not overshadowed by it! You are one of those people who can become quite famous simply for being who you are, rather than for doing anything of import -- but you're not about to let this happen if you can help it. You always want to be doing, doing, doing.
Also born on this date are: Lebron James, basketball player; Tiger Woods, golfer; Tyrese Gibson, singer; Davy Jones, singer and actor; Matt Lauer, journalist and TV personality; Meredith Vieira, journalist and TV host; Michael Nesmith, singer and musician; Sandy Koufax, baseball player; Jack Lord, actor; Sean Hannity, talk show host; Rudyard Kipling, author and poet; Bo Diddley, musician; Patti Smith, singer-songwriter; Tracey Ullman, actress and comedian; Russ Tamblyn, actor; Bert Parks, actor and singer.
