Born today, you are often more emotional than you seem, and others may be surprised when you give those emotions free rein and express yourself openly, honestly and without reserve. They may even consider your candor inappropriate, oftentimes rightly so! You have a way, however, of channeling your emotions into your endeavors -- be they professional pursuits or not. In this way, you are able to invest a great deal that is important and deeply felt into whatever you are doing at any given time. You aren't the kind to enjoy busywork; you want to be doing something that is meaningful, both to you and to others, as well.
You have a knack for knowing what is going to happen -- later today, tomorrow or even further down the road. This sixth sense of yours is often the very thing that makes success possible; your ability to anticipate is what sets you apart! That, combined with one or two more tangible talents, will surely accelerate your progress in all aspects of life.
Also born on this date are: Ludwig Van Beethoven, composer; Jane Austen, author; Billy Gibbons, guitarist; Benjamin Bratt, actor; Benny Andersson, singer; Wassily Kandinsky, painter; Margaret Mead, anthropologist; Arthur C. Clarke, author; Lesley Stahl, journalist; Noel Coward, playwright and actor; Steven Bochco, TV producer; Ben Cross, actor.
