Born today, you may seem to come from out of nowhere to those who are not adept at assessing currents and possibilities. You have a knack for taking advantage of this particular circumstance; you use the element of surprise to your advantage again and again, not only for your own benefit, but like so many Cancer natives, for the benefit of those around you. You understand that you do not live alone in the world, and that you must contribute in a positive way to the lives of those you touch. You are most content when you are able to influence others, but at the same time, you are not resistant to being influenced yourself.
You know how to talk to people, and you can be quite convincing, even when there is little evidence to support your particular point of view. This is a strength that you must never apply in any but the most positive and productive of ways. Otherwise, it may prove to be quite harmful to you and others.
Also born on this date are: Eva Green, actress; Edie Falco, actress; Huey Lewis, singer; Katherine Helmond, actress; Georges Pompidou, former president of France; P.T. Barnum, circus entrepreneur.
