Born today, you try diligently to display to the world the side of your personality that is open, accepting, tolerant, pleasant, sociable and charming -- for you know that is the side of you that can really pave your way, both personally and professionally. What you do not want the world to see, however, is the side of your nature that is far more dark and biting, the side that actually enables you to survive in the most difficult of situations, but which can be, when things are going well, a real disadvantage to you. It is that side that compels you to lash out, to criticize, to be aloof and judgmental, and to think of yourself as better than others.
Fortunately, when you keep these two sides in balance or, even better, allow your more charming self to maintain dominance, you are able to do the impossible -- and others are sure to want you on their team! There is nothing moderate about you -- or about how others think of you. You are either loved or hated -- nothing in between.
Also born on this date are: Phil Collins, singer-songwriter and musician; Christian Bale, actor; Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dick Martin, director and comedian; Dorothy Malone, actress; Gene Hackman, actor; Wilmer Valderrama, actor; Dick Cheney, U.S. vice president; Vanessa Redgrave, actress; Brett Butler, comedian and actress; Boris Spassky, Russian chess champion; Charles Dutton, actor.
