Born today, you enjoy paying attention to what goes on around you, but not merely because you are a natural student of human behavior. Rather, you watch those around you because you learn about what makes them tick, and you can use this in your work -- usually, you use it in a highly creative way. You know how to take the simplest of raw materials and turn them into a rare and wonderful concoction that others will enjoy. You can follow the most basic steps and reach a destination that is special to you and those who share your life with you. You seem to have a kind of Midas touch that allows you to make the most out of even routine opportunities.
You are a highly principled and ethical individual with strong moral fiber and a keen understanding of right and wrong. You also have a temper, and it's likely to rear its ugly head when you feel you have been wronged in some way. Only then, really, do you let your emotions get the better of you.
Also born on this date are: Tim McGraw, singer; Judy Collins, singer; Ray Parker Jr., singer; Glenn Ford, actor; Joanna Lumley, actress; Kate Smith, singer; Rita Coolidge, singer; Dann Florek, actor; John Woo, director; Jack Paar, comedian and television host.
