Born today, you are likely to enjoy tremendous health, both physically and mentally, throughout your lifetime -- and you'll recognize this as a gift you must cherish and protect at all times. You have a special way of combining the mental and the physical in almost all activities; indeed, it is impossible to determine if you are a thinker who knows how to put thoughts into action, or a doer who knows how to commit yourself to intelligent endeavors! The truth is that there is really no telling; you are always thinking about what is going on in the world -- especially when you are directly affected -- and you are always springing into action to accomplish this or that. You combine thought and action with remarkable success.
You understand and appreciate that not everyone will agree with you at all times. In fact, you are often eager to mix it up with those who don't! You enjoy a good debate, and you are perfectly willing to learn a thing or two when faced with someone who knows more or has more experience than you do.
Also born on this date are: Chris Hemsworth, actor; Hulk Hogan, wrestler and actor; Alex Haley, author; Pablo Sandoval, baseball player; Steve Wozniak, computer mogul; Joe Rogan, television host and actor; Mike Douglas, producer and talk-show host; Jerry Falwell, evangelist.
