Born today, you are a bright and positive individual who never insists on being center stage. Instead, you can find tremendous contentment providing the kind of behind-the-scenes support that is so necessary to virtually every kind of worthwhile endeavor in life. You know that you have great things to offer, but you also realize that not everyone is born to be in the spotlight. Even so, you can learn to exploit the opportunity to shine when it comes to you. You may, in fact, stumble into just such an opportunity at least twice in your life, turning each into such a tremendous success that you are remembered for them more than for all the other things you do or have done. The truth is, however, that you are not so concerned with how you are remembered, but rather with how you live.
You are keenly interested in the way the world works, and you feel compelled to investigate even its minutest workings in order to gain greater understanding of the environment in which you live and work. It is this understanding that is so vital to your success.
Also born on this date are: Maya Rudolph, actress and comedian; Jonathan Rhys Meyers, actor; Jerry Van Dyke, actor; Betty Thomas, actress; Taylor Schilling, actress; Peggy Fleming, Olympic figure skater; Norman Lear, TV producer; Maureen McGovern, singer; Christopher Dean, Olympic figure skater; Johann Bernouilli, mathematician; Keenan Wynn, actor; Leo Durocher, baseball manager.
