Born today, you do not always do what will please those around you; indeed, you can rub others the wrong way very often! Still, there is something about you that keeps you from alienating anyone, and you are likely to attract a great many friends and admirers into your orbit despite your abrasive, controversial or downright unpleasant behavior. The truth is, like so many Libra natives, you are merely being yourself. If others cannot accept that, it says volumes about them without reflecting poorly on you at all. At least, that's how you think -- and thinking that way is what gets you through even the most difficult situations.
You aren't the kind to give lip service. What you say, you mean; and what you mean, you will almost always find an opportunity to say. It may not always be clear to others, but the fact is that you care a great deal for those around you. It must be said, however, that you care more for yourself on most occasions.
Also born on this date are: Kim Kardashian West, television personality; Carrie Fisher, actress; Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister; Judge Judy Sheindlin, television personality; Dizzy Gillespie, musician; Alfred Nobel, inventor; Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet.
