Born today, you may at times be wildly misunderstood, even by those who walk the same paths and see the same things in life. This is likely because you cultivate an inner life that is rich, varied, complicated, visionary and usually hidden from the hoi polloi. You don't like to share your innermost self with most of the world -- only those very few whom you consider your closest, most trusted friends and loved ones. Not even family members are privy to what goes on inside you, for the most part! You can function well among all kinds of people, but there is always this part of yourself that you keep well-concealed.
Though you may be highly skilled in a variety of areas, you are likely to have one particular talent that, above all others, will propel you to the top of your chosen profession -- provided, of course, you choose correctly! This is not a given, of course, for there are many things in which you are interested, and which may demand focus and attention.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Suzanne Collins, author; Angie Harmon, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president; Eddie Fisher, singer; Jack Haley, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Norma Shearer, actress; Sam Warner, filmmaker; Rhonda Fleming, actress.
