Born today, you know how to hang on when things get tough, but make no mistake, you like things to go smoothly as much as the next person, if not more! Still, your ability to make the best of a bad situation is likely to be your most useful trait, as it will come in handy regardless of setting. In personal and professional situations, you know how to turn a disadvantage into an advantage, or at least into something you can work with. You are a thoughtful individual, and you never do anything without considering all the ins and outs that the endeavor entails.
You know yourself well, and you are likely to know others well, also -- but which is more important? You would argue that it is more important to know yourself, and you make this belief look good in the way you are able to parlay self-knowledge into positive gains again and again.
Also born on this date are: Nikki Sixx, musician; Mo'Nique, actress and comedian; Jermaine Jackson, singer; John Kerry, U.S. politician; Rita Moreno, actress; Brenda Lee, singer; Mos Def, actor and rapper; Donna Mills, actress; Max Born, physicist; Teri Garr, actress; Fiorello La Guardia, New York City mayor.
