Born today, you are one of the most watched individuals born under your sign. Others are naturally compelled to pay attention to you, to chart your movements, study your habits and, at times, even imitate your style -- but why? You are a rather quirky individual, easily recognizable and hard to forget, one who has a knack for being very much at the center of things. You are not happy being on the sidelines; you will always work your way toward a place where you can influence affairs or at least simply do things your own way, come what will. You are never a fan of compromise, and this will surely bring you into conflict with others on occasion.
Love is something of a mystery to you, but that doesn't mean you don't give it a try as often as you possibly can! Indeed, you are likely to break many hearts in your lifetime if you follow your romantic instincts without curbing them at all. At the same time, you will keep your own heart from breaking whenever you can.
Also born on this date are: Jack Nicholson, actor; Marshawn Lynch, football player; Amber Heard, actress; Vladimir Lenin, Russian politician; Peter Frampton, singer-songwriter; Glen Campbell, singer-songwriter; John Waters, filmmaker; Aaron Spelling, television producer; Bettie Page, model; Robert Oppenheimer, physicist; Eddie Albert, actor; Yehudi Menuhin, violinist; Terry Francona, baseball manager.
