Born today, you are a force to be reckoned with -- and you know it. Fortunately, you are not by nature an aggressive or combative individual, for if you were, there would be little left in your wake, and the lives of those around you would surely suffer. The truth, of course, is that you are caring and courteous, and despite your boundless energy, tenacity and strong, vibrant personality, you would not hurt a fly. You can, however, change the dynamic of a room simply by entering it, and you often do. Your presence is always noted by those around you, and what you do and say is likely to have a major impact on them -- even in subtle, albeit lasting, ways. You are not one to let others stand in your way, yet you will always strive to avoid direct conflict when you can.
You have a certain style that is all your own; though others may try to imitate you again and again, they will never truly be able to embody that "certain something" that is unique to you. Others recognize you as one who marches to a different drummer -- and perhaps you do, though it is likely that you are, in fact, your own drummer!
Also born on this date are: Matt LeBlanc, actor; Lauren Faust, animator; Walter Payton, football player; Estelle Getty, actress; Iman, model and actress; Walter Brennan, actor; Brad Renfro, actor; Illeana Douglas, actress; Maxfield Parrish, artist.
