Born today, you are likely to assume a rather high-powered role in life, yet at the same time, you will never drift too far from your own humble roots. For this reason, you will be able to maintain a realistic view of yourself and your world. You can keep both feet firmly on the ground even as you soar, professionally, in rather rarified air. You know how to communicate well with others, and your ability to present yourself in a down-to-earth fashion will always serve you well in both business and personal affairs. You never want others to be intimidated by you simply because you are a big shot, so when you are one, it's important for you to behave like anyone else.
You know how to put two and two together, but unlike many, you are able to come up with more than four as often as not! How is this possible? For starters, you never assume that a thing cannot be done, so the seemingly impossible is merely a possibility that may be more difficult than others to spot.
Also born on this date are: LL Cool J, rapper and actor; Jason Bateman, actor; Faye Dunaway, actress; Carl Weathers, football player and actor; Albert Schweitzer, physician; Andy Rooney, author and commentator; Emily Watson, actress; Jack Jones, singer; Richard Briers, actor; Benedict Arnold, military leader; Hal Roach, producer; Steven Soderbergh, filmmaker.
