Born today, you are the kind of individual who can have what you want simply by asking for it -- for it is likely that others will do all they can to satisfy you in every way possible, simply because you have the kind of charm that is irresistible -- even downright beguiling and magical. You try to live your life in a straightforward manner, even though there is always a kind of dazzle about you that affects others in every way imaginable. You like to keep your feet on the ground while you let your imagination soar; you aren't the kind to build castles in air or bet the farm on that which has no chance of happening. You are quite realistic.
You pursue goals in a logical, almost mathematical fashion, assessing pros and cons, calculating the odds and determining your course of action based on facts and the laws of probability. This doesn't keep you from dreaming, of course -- or from falling in love again and again!
Also born on this date are: Cameron Diaz, actress; Warren Buffett, investor; Ted Williams, baseball player; Andy Roddick, tennis player; Mary Shelley, author; Peggy Lipton, actress; Fred MacMurray, actor; Shirley Booth, actress; Michael Chiklis, actor; Joan Blondell, actress; Elizabeth Ashley, actress; Timothy Bottoms, actor; David Paymer, actor; Huey Long, politician.
