Born today, you feel compelled to explore endeavors that both excite and frighten you. Like so many Capricorn natives, you have a way of facing your fears with humor and stoicism. In other words, you don't let them get the better of you! You are known for acting in ways that are, to some, quite inexplicable. Indeed, in many cases, the only reason for your actions is that you simply felt like it. You will often do things out of the blue -- things that might be considered by others to be eccentric, off balance or downright weird. You never let the opinions of others get to you, even if you enjoy praise and admiration as much as anyone.
You are never likely to lose that childlike aspect of your nature -- in fact, your ability to see the world through the eyes of a child will surely shepherd you through all manner of situations, especially those that are challenging or potentially traumatic.
Also born on this date are: Ryan Seacrest, television personality; Ricky Martin, singer and actor; Ava Gardner, actress; Howard Hughes, aviator and movie producer; Kit Carson, explorer and military leader; Mary Higgins Clark, author; Georges Guynemer, French World War I pilot; Michael Curtiz, film director.
