Born today, you are always keenly aware of the effect you are having on those around you. You never enter a room without first considering exactly how the dynamic within that room will change as a result of your appearance, whether expected or unexpected. You are able to highlight certain aspects of your strong personality in order to influence things in certain ways. Because of this, you must always be sure that your motives and intentions are positive and pure. You never want to do anything that could be in any way harmful to others, even though you are quite capable of doing so! You are confident, at times even confrontational, but never inconsiderate or thoughtless.
You seem to be more motivated than most, always thinking of ways to be on the cutting edge of whatever endeavor you may be engaged in at the time. You do not think of yourself or your endeavors in small terms. You always consider where you will be far down the road, and you usually go after long-term gains, not immediate gratification.
Also born on this date are: Dr. Dre, rapper; John Travolta, actor; Vanna White, game show personality; Molly Ringwald, actress; Jillian Michaels, fitness trainer; Matt Dillon, actor; Yoko Ono, artist and musician; John Hughes, filmmaker; Jack Palance, actor; George Kennedy, actor; Cybill Shepherd, actress; Juice Newton, singer; Bill Cullen, game show host; Milos Forman, filmmaker; Helen Gurley Brown, editor; Wendell Willkie, lawyer and presidential candidate; Nikos Kazantzakis, author; Greta Scacchi, actress.
