Born today, you are confident, capable and eager to charge forth into the world to claim what you feel is yours by right, whether it be fame, fortune, celebrity or merely the satisfaction of knowing that you have made a difference. Your emotions run deep, and you tend to feel strongly about everything you do. Indeed, if your emotions are not fully engaged by an endeavor, you are not likely to stick with it long. You are consumed with the notion of doing things the right way, and while there are times when you stray from that path and make mistakes, you always work hard to correct them as quickly as possible.
Those around you may not always understand you, and your behavior and tastes may differ greatly from those of the general populace. You know you are different, but you don't always know what sets you apart. You are confident that if you are left alone to follow your instincts, you can achieve much -- but sometimes you are not left alone!
Also born on this date are: Rowan Atkinson, actor and comic; Eddie Redmayne, actor; Joan of Arc, soldier and saint; Nigella Lawson, author and chef; Danny Thomas, actor; Loretta Young, actress; Bonnie Franklin, actress; Carl Sandburg, poet and author; Howie Long, football player; Vic Tayback, actor; Tom Mix, actor; John Singleton, filmmaker; Anthony Minghella, filmmaker.
