Born today, you may not always make things as easy for yourself as they might be, for you are likely to go through life with a chip on your shoulder, eager to confront those who would challenge you, and always willing to engage in a fight when things get tough. While this can serve you well in certain situations, it can also bring you a great deal of hardship. The truth is, you may see opposition in the eyes of one who is actually quite supportive of you, and subsequently threaten or even destroy the relationship through inappropriately aggressive behavior. Still, you are able to inspire loyalty among your inner circle, who understand that there is something special about you.
You have a keen mind and the ability to think your way through problems that would stump nearly everyone else -- but that doesn't mean that you will always solve those problems! On the contrary, knowing what to do isn't the same as doing it -- and this will often make the difference between success and failure for you.
Also born on this date are: Johnny Cash, singer and songwriter; Erykah Badu, singer; Michael Bolton, singer; Jackie Gleason, actor and comedian; Fats Domino, musician; Victor Hugo, author; William Frawley, actor; Tex Avery, animator; Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild West showman; Tony Randall, actor; Robert Alda, actor; Ariel Sharon, Israeli leader; Betty Hutton, actress.
