Born today, you are often directed by your passions, and you will learn throughout your lifetime that this can be both a positive and a negative, depending on the circumstances and the manner in which you let yourself be led by those strong, deep emotional currents flowing just beneath the surface. You are never one to let "no" stop you. When someone tells you that you cannot do something, you can be counted on to give it a try; in most cases, you will succeed. It is not so much that you are contrary or rebellious, but rather that you cannot abide -- in theory or in actuality -- being limited, restricted or oppressed in any way.
Your dreams and ambitions are quite lofty. You are determined to do things that allow you to soar in ways that others can only imagine. You are something of a risk-taker, but these risks do not always take the form of dramatic and dangerous endeavors. Sometimes they take the form of small, daily activities or decisions.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lopez, singer and actress; Amelia Earhart, pioneer aviator; Kristin Chenoweth, actress; Anna Paquin, actress; Lynda Carter, actress; Barry Bonds, baseball player; Rose Byrne, actress; Karl Malone, basketball player; Michael Richards, actor and comedian; Simon Bolivar, military hero; Eric Szmanda, actor; Ruth Buzzi, actress and comedian; Alexandre Dumas, author; Robert Hays, actor; Chris Sarandon, actor; Gallagher, comedian; Elisabeth Moss, actress.
