Born today, you are quite adept at navigating life's twists and turns. This is a skill developed over time, incorporating instinct and a kind of sixth sense that allows you to perceive what may be coming around the next corner with remarkable accuracy. Some may claim you are just lucky in this regard, but the fact is that you anticipate coming events with such remarkable consistency that there simply must be more to it! You apply yourself to all things with single-minded purpose and a willingness to do whatever is necessary to succeed. You are never selfish, however; you will always share the fruits of your labors with others -- both now and over the long haul.
You are sensitive, perceptive and eager to please -- but you are not so concerned with fulfilling the expectations of others that you are imprisoned by them. You are able to maintain your autonomy even when serving others, and you are renowned for doing things your own way.
Also born on this date are: Rowan Atkinson, actor and comedian; Eddie Redmayne, actor; Joan of Arc, soldier and saint; Nigella Lawson, author and chef; Danny Thomas, actor; Loretta Young, actress; Bonnie Franklin, actress; Carl Sandburg, poet and author; Howie Long, football player; Vic Tayback, actor; Tom Mix, actor; John Singleton, filmmaker; Anthony Minghella, filmmaker.
