Born today, you have a mellow sort of approach to life, but this belies a rapid current of heightened emotions running just beneath your cool, calm exterior. You feel very strongly about almost everything, but you also feel strongly that others needn't know what you feel at every turn. For this reason, you keep close tabs on what you are projecting to the world at large. You are keenly aware of how you fit into the world and what your role is -- and what it can be if it is allowed to develop and grow organically. You are also quite ambitious, and the combination of self-knowledge and professional desire is sure to take you very far, very quickly!
You have a strong personality and the ability to take charge of a situation if and when you are required to do so. You will often grab the reins simply because your instincts tell you that you have what it takes to move things forward and increase the odds of success.
Also born on this date are: Orlando Bloom, actor; Patrick Dempsey, actor; Trace Adkins, singer-songwriter; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress; Charles Nelson Reilly, actor; Robert Stack, actor; Penelope Ann Miller, actress; Sophie Tucker, singer and actress.
