Born today, you are a powerful individual with tremendous charisma and charm. You have the ability to influence others through both words and actions. This is something you must always use with great care, however, for the risk of leading others into decisions and actions that are erroneous, ill-timed or ill-conceived is very real. When that happens, disaster may well strike you and those around you. Fortunately, you are quite adept at countering this kind of adversity with determined steps that can lead to quick recovery and newfound success. You rely on your ability to stay true to yourself in all things, both private and public.
You have one or two unique talents, and you're likely to make the most of them. You will have enjoyed a lucky break early in life that, at the time, may have seemed almost like an impossible dream, but that you later credit for giving you the boost you needed to carry on and make something of yourself.
Also born on this date are: Al Pacino, actor; Renee Zellweger, actress; Jason Lee, actor; Talia Shire, actress; Hank Azaria, actor; Meadowlark Lemon, basketball player; Oliver Cromwell, English politician; Edward R. Murrow, journalist; Joe Buck, sportscaster; Paul Mazursky, filmmaker.
