Born today, you may sometimes feel as though you don't belong, even when you are surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. This state of affairs is nothing you can control. It is simply a product of personality combined with circumstances -- two influences that have you at their mercy, and that you simply cannot change. True, you can do certain things to influence situations and events, but the overriding circumstances of your existence -- the "big things" at the heart of it all -- will always be central to your life. So why do you feel homesick so much of the time? It is true that you are different -- even exceptional in gifts and abilities -- and this no doubt has the greatest impact on you and how you feel about the world around you.
None of this means, of course, that you cannot enjoy yourself. On the contrary, you are likely to find great pleasure in many endeavors, both personal and professional, and you are likely to develop a sense of humor that wins you widespread admiration and sees you through the most difficult times.
Also born on this date are: Nick Jonas, singer; Marc Anthony, singer; B.B. King, musician; Amy Poehler, actress and comedian; Jennifer Tilly, actress; David Copperfield, magician; Lauren Bacall, actress; Peter Falk, actor; Richard Marx, singer; Allen Funt, TV personality; Ed Begley Jr., actor; Anne Francis, actress.
