Born today, you are rarely one to say "no" to an opportunity that arises, even if it means jumping into a situation for which you are completely unprepared. You are something of a daredevil in this respect; you will charge ahead without giving things the thought they really deserve. As a result, you will invariably wind up in hot water again and again in your lifetime. What you will learn as a result, of course, is how to get yourself out of trouble almost as quickly as you find yourself in it, and you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate this developing skill on many, many occasions.
You are likely to be remembered by many for something that you are not necessarily proud of, yet you cannot deny that you made your mark in that way and have relatively few regrets as a result. Still, there will always be things you wish you could take back -- things you either do or say.
Also born on this date are: Bob Marley, singer and musician; Babe Ruth, baseball player; Ronald Reagan, actor and U.S. president; Axl Rose, singer; Rick Astley, singer; Natalie Cole, singer; Zsa Zsa Gabor, actress; Fabian, singer; Mike Farrell, actor; Tom Brokaw, news anchor; Rip Torn, actor; Patrick Macnee, actor; Mary Leakey, paleoanthropologist; Mamie Van Doren, actress; Robert Townsend, actor and comedian; Aaron Burr, U.S. vice president; Eva Braun, wife of Adolf Hitler; Kathy Najimy, actress; Francois Truffaut, filmmaker.
