Born today, you are unusual and remarkable. Anyone who enjoys the pleasure of being close to you in any way will surely be better for it. You have tremendous talents, matched by a personality that is strong and steady, and a view of the world that is tolerant and all-embracing. You are an enemy to no one and a friend to most. Even those with whom you engage in conflict are considered, by you and those who know you, to be friendly rivals. You seem to know what makes people tick; your understanding of human motives and methods, and of their significance in making the world turn 'round, is unrivaled. You are energetic, positive and able to make the best of even the most unfortunate situations.
There may be some issues that you overlook to your peril. This happens because you are, at times, too trusting of others. Fortunately, you are rarely ignorant of this trait, and you can work to undo any damage done because of it. Still, you would always rather trust another than not.
Also born on this date are: William Shakespeare, playwright and poet; Shirley Temple Black, actress and diplomat; George Lopez, comedian; Taio Cruz, singer; Valerie Bertinelli, actress; Lee Majors, actor; Roy Orbison, singer; Dev Patel, actor; Joyce DeWitt, actress; Michael Moore, filmmaker; Sandra Dee, actress; James Buchanan, U.S. president; Melina Kanakaredes, actress; Sergei Prokofiev, composer; Vladimir Nabokov, author; Andruw Jones, baseball player; Tony Esposito, hockey player; Herve Villechaize, actor; Judy Davis, actress.
