Born today, you are able to effect change wherever you go, shaping the world according to your bright and positive vision. You can alter the dynamic of a room simply by walking into it; you don't even have to speak for your presence to be felt, for you will surely be noticed the moment you set foot in the door. You have a dynamic personality, and you have a great deal of generosity and vision that you are able to put to good use again and again. Though you can surely do good work entirely on your own -- and do, at times, prefer solitude while you work out a particularly stubborn problem -- the truth is that you prefer working with others, enjoying the social benefits and camaraderie that group efforts afford you.
You may go through one or two periods in your life when you are unable to address the difficulties around you with the same aplomb as you usually do. This is because you will have fallen out of sync with the world and those in it in some key way. Fortunately, you can recover quickly and get back on the right track.
Also born on this date are: George Strait, singer; Tina Fey, actress, writer and comedian; Pope John Paul II; Jack Johnson, singer; Reggie Jackson, baseball player; Perry Como, singer and actor; Pernell Roberts, actor; Chow Yun-Fat, actor; Bertrand Russell, author and philosopher; Margot Fonteyn, dancer; Frank Capra, filmmaker; Robert Morse, actor; Czar Nicholas II of Russia; Meredith Willson, playwright and songwriter; Bill Macy, actor.
