Born today, you are not always one to get along with superiors or authority figures. Indeed, you have been known to sacrifice success by severing ties with those you simply do not enjoy working under. You must be prepared to suffer slightly more than your share of disappointment in your life if you insist on letting your mistrust of those in charge get the better of you. If this feeling is a product of specific circumstances, so be it, but if it is merely a personal principle that you cannot shake for whatever reason, then you must learn to control it for your own good. Though you tend to be a loner, you can work with others -- provided yours is the voice of authority and your decisions are final.
You are drawn to endeavors that allow you to challenge yourself and face your fears. You thrive on a kind of nervous energy that would be too much for most, but you know how to use it in such a way that, quite often, you are able to do the seemingly impossible. You are no quitter!
Also born on this date are: Eddie Vedder, musician and singer; Corey Haim, actor; Jim Harbaugh, football player and coach; Susan Lucci, actress; Joseph Smith, religious leader; Anthony Phillips, musician; Roy Brown, World War I pilot; Cody Ross, baseball player; Robert Bly, poet and author; Jose Greco, dancer and choreographer.
