Born today, you have been endowed with the capacity to think big thoughts, solve complicated puzzles and come up with imaginative, unorthodox solutions to the problems you encounter in life. You are likely to find yourself at the forefront of your chosen career, but not until you are certain that it is what you really want to do with your life. While young, you may drift from one endeavor to another, unsure of your true place in the professional arena, until you stumble upon something that seems to make sense to you -- something that allows all of the thinking that you do to be put to good, practical use. Once all the tumblers fall into place, you can surely unlock the door to professional contentment and success.
You are not always what you seem to be, and others may often be surprised by what they see in you -- for the images you project may be quite different from one day to the next. You are a playful individual, and you particularly enjoy having fun where romance is concerned. You don't always follow the rules when it comes to love!
Also born on this date are: Sir Isaac Newton, physicist; Jimmy Buffett, singer and songwriter; Humphrey Bogart, actor; Annie Lennox, singer; Clara Barton, nurse and humanitarian; Rod Serling, screenwriter and director; Sissy Spacek, actress; Barbara Mandrell, singer and actress; Cab Calloway, bandleader; C.C.H. Pounder, actress.
