Born today, you are likely to maintain close ties to family, tradition, history and everything that has combined to make you who you are. You'll trust those who have gone before to show you the way. This doesn't mean, of course, that you cannot or will not express yourself uniquely or assert your independence; indeed, you can be highly expressive and independent almost to a fault. But you understand that even that may be the result of all the influences from the past that have put you where you are at any given moment. You see no problem with honoring the past and moving independently into the future; you can reconcile what has gone before with what has not yet happened. You are able to take the tried and true and turn it to your own advantage in new ways.
You have a great deal of sex appeal, but it is not always the kind that advertises itself; rather, it is more subtle in all aspects. Love and romance, for you, develop slowly and steadily rather than exploding like a roman candle. When it comes to love, you're never in a hurry.
Also born on this date are: Mariska Hargitay, actress; Ernie Kovacs, comedian and actor; Richard Dean Anderson, actor; John Hancock, Founding Father; Princess Caroline of Monaco; Rutger Hauer, actor; Randolph Scott, actor; Edouard Manet, painter; Chita Rivera, actress.
