Born today, you are used to being in the driver's seat, but when necessary you can surely relinquish control and let someone else get behind the wheel. This doesn't mean that you won't be paying attention at every moment to your progress and to how that driver is doing! There is a certain amount of mistrust that you harbor for almost everyone; you are far more comfortable when you are responsible for your own success without having to depend on others. It is not so much that you think you are better than anyone else, but rather you like knowing precisely whom to credit or whom to blame for succeeding or failing when you are in charge of your own destiny.
You are no isolationist, despite your love of independence and autonomy. You care deeply for others and will often spend a great deal of time and energy working to make things better for those around you. You are creative, imaginative and often able to make the unlikely come to be.
Also born on this date are: Sir Isaac Newton, physicist; Jimmy Buffett, singer-songwriter; Humphrey Bogart, actor; Annie Lennox, singer; Clara Barton, nurse and humanitarian; Rod Serling, screenwriter and director; Sissy Spacek, actress; Barbara Mandrell, singer and actress; Cab Calloway, bandleader.
