Born today, you are not always the kind to share with others, and you keep a great deal close to the vest when dealing with those outside your own intimate circle of friends and loved ones. At times, even members of your own family don't really know what's going on with you -- inside or out -- because you are so secretive. When things are exceptionally bright -- or unusually dark -- you tend to celebrate or sink into depression on your own, without the outlet of the social scene or supportive friends, neighbors and loved ones. You simply prefer to deal with your own emotions in your own way, come what may.
You are likely to bear a great many private burdens in your lifetime, simply because you don't engage in the kind of social behavior that gives you a viable outlet for your feelings. Still, you always say that this makes you feel alive, and that your feelings are what set you apart.
Also born on this date are: Nicolas Cage, actor; Jeremy Renner, actor; David Caruso, actor; Katie Couric, journalist and TV personality; Kenny Loggins, singer-songwriter; Butterfly McQueen, actress; Millard Fillmore, U.S. president; Alfonso Soriano, baseball player; Erin Gray, actress; Charles Addams, cartoonist; Rand Paul, U.S. senator; William Peter Blatty, author; Jean-Pierre Rampal, flutist.
