Born today, you have such tremendous stores of creative energy that you are seldom without some sort of project in the works. Such projects may bring you fame, fortune or simply personal contentment. You are always keenly interested in the well-being of those around you as well as your own. Indeed, you are often motivated more by concern for others than for yourself, though you will never turn down what comes your way in terms of recognition or reward. You have a certain air about you, a unique style all your own that is subtle, yet vibrant, which opens doors for you wherever you go. Others find you irresistible in some way, and you are always a welcome addition to any gathering.
As you mature, you will develop the kind of intensity that makes others wonder just how much you might be capable of -- the kind of quiet, buzzing energy that attracts attention. You can be rather emotional, but you work hard to keep your emotions in check.
Also born on this date are: J.K. Rowling, author; Wesley Snipes, actor; Ted Cassidy, actor; Richard Griffiths, actor; Michael Biehn, actor; Geraldine Chaplin, actress; B.J. Novak, actor and screenwriter; Dean Cain, actor; Ben Chaplin, actor.
