Born today, you are a strong and willful individual, unwilling to bend whenever others exert power with which you must contend. You are far more likely to meet any kind of force or challenge head-on rather than to avoid it, skirt it or bow to it in any way. What you have going for you, besides the strength of your will and a strong, forceful personality, is the ability to anticipate what might be around the next corner with uncanny accuracy. It is almost as if you are able to see into the future at times! You can combine strength with circumspection and foresight in order to make the most out of every situation -- and avoid those that are patently bad!
There may be times in your life when you feel you have been somehow shortchanged, that fate or the stars have dealt you a hand you simply cannot play. On the other hand, you are likely to be dealt four aces on at least two occasions in your life -- and these moments are the ones that really count.
Also born on this date are: Aaron Paul, actor; Paul Reubens, actor; Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president; Tuesday Weld, actress; Daryl Dragon, musician; Martha Raye, actress; G.W. Bailey, actor.
