Born today, you often seem to be two people at once: one who attracts others into an orbit of charm and involvement, and one who prefers to go it alone without the companionship that friends and loved ones can provide. The secret, of course, is that you are indeed both of these people, and you must learn to do what suits you at any given time. Try to be sociable when you are feeling aloof, and you will only disappoint yourself and others; conversely, any time you isolate yourself when you are in the mood to be out and about, you will only be hurting yourself in the long run. Listen to your instincts, and you can do no wrong.
You like to pay keen attention to what is going on in the world, and you learn a great deal about yourself and others in the process. You have such a deep understanding of observed events that you are never really surprised by what others are capable of -- even when you see them act outrageously.
Also born on this date are: Joe Pesci, actor; Carole King, singer-songwriter; Travis Tritt, singer; Mia Farrow, actress; Alice Walker, author; William Henry Harrison, U.S. president; Carmen Miranda, actress; Zhang Ziyi, actress; Ciaran Hinds, actor; Ronald Colman, actor; Roger Mudd, newsman; Dean Rusk, U.S. statesman; Brendan Behan, Irish poet and playwright.
