Born today, you are, like so many other Aries natives, a strong-willed and independent individual, one who cherishes both privacy and the adulation of others. At times, this can be a difficult conflict to resolve in your daily life. You cannot easily have both, but there are ways to arrange it if you are clever and work hard enough to ensure that time and distance are not barriers to others' admiration of you. You must often think outside the box with regard to the framework of your life, or you may find yourself caught between the two things you love most -- while enjoying neither! It's up to you to arrange your situation to your liking; you must own your happiness.
You are one of the most hardworking, diligent, dedicated and tenacious individuals born under your sign -- there are some who would even call you "obsessive." True, when you latch onto a notion, you're not likely to let go easily -- until either you bring it to fruition, or it defeats you utterly and exacts its toll.
Also born on this date are: Martin Lawrence, actor and comedian; Selena, singer; Charlie Chaplin, actor; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, basketball player; Pope Benedict XVI; Jon Cryer, actor; Wilbur Wright, inventor; Bobby Vinton, singer; Dusty Springfield, singer; Jimmy Osmond, singer; Bruch Bochy, baseball manager; Peter Billingsley, actor; Ellen Barkin, actress; Sean Maher, actor; Henry Mancini, composer; Peter Ustinov, actor; Merce Cunningham, choreographer; Lukas Haas, actor; Gerry Rafferty, singer.
