Born today, you are one of the most fun-loving individuals born under your sign, yet at the same time you are also one of the hardest working and most dedicated. When you spot a goal you think is worth pursuing, you will pursue it with everything you've got, even to the point of sacrificing daily enjoyment for the sake of great gains down the road. You are never one to turn away from a challenge. You believe that the harder one works, the more fun one can have -- and the more fun one has, the better his or her work will be. You combine business and pleasure like no other, but only when it is appropriate to do so, and in ways that will attract admiration and imitation, not scrutiny or criticism.
You are not always fond of routine, but when it comes to daily chores, you prefer to leave them to someone else! Of course, that is not always possible, so there will surely be times when your own personal environment is something of a mess. You will take the time to straighten things up eventually!
Also born on this date are: Oksana Baiul, Olympic figure skater; Lisa Bonet, actress; Martha Plimpton, actress; Burgess Meredith, actor; Diana Krall, singer; Maggie Gyllenhaal, actress.
