Born today, you are not likely to learn the most important lessons from formal education; indeed, classrooms and textbooks are anathema to you. You're likely to go elsewhere for the kind of experience and practical knowledge that can really help you forge a successful path in life. It is very likely that your path will be unconventional in some way, not the kind that requires you to sit in an office, work hours at a time in front of a computer, or otherwise remain stationary and focused on a narrow range of tasks. You're far more likely to choose a life that gives you freedom to roam, freedom to express yourself, and freedom to change your mind when you find that your current situation doesn't content you.
You are the kind of person that other people often want to be, yet it's not likely that many could actually fill your shoes. You are a unique individual, not easily pigeonholed, and you are always eager to move on to the next thing that strikes your fancy. You're a traveler, not a settler.
Also born on this date are: George Clooney, actor and filmmaker; Tom Bergeron, television host; Sigmund Freud, psychoanalyst; Willie Mays, baseball player; Bob Seger, singer; Tony Blair, British prime minister; Gabourey Sidibe, actress; Orson Welles, actor and filmmaker; Robert Peary, explorer; Rudolph Valentino, actor; Stewart Granger, actor.
