Born today, you are likely to attract a great deal of attention while you are very young. If luck and your ambition hold, this is likely to be true throughout your entire life. It is what happens during your formative years, however, that will prove most significant; the choices you make and the effects they have on you and others will determine the course of your entire life. Your opportunities to change from one path to another will be few and far between, but you're not the kind to change your mind about the important things, anyway. Like all Libra natives, you are quite adept at navigating all sorts of situations that the world might present to you.
Also like most Libra natives, you do your best to be true to yourself at all costs, though you may be more willing to compromise than some. Indeed, you are not one to stubbornly charge ahead in the face of great danger; for example, you know better than to insist on something when it may spell disaster for you and yours!
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, psychologist; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater; Karl Jansky, physicist; Christopher Lloyd, actor; Spike Jonez, filmmaker; Bob Odenkirk, actor.
