Born today, you have a great deal of personal power surging from within, and you must always do what you can to control it, shape it and steer it in the right directions, lest it threaten you with disastrous consequences. You are never one to back away from a challenge, and you are often at your best in difficult situations. You perform well under stress of all kinds, and you are known to accept the kinds of challenges that force you to endure all manner of hardships. You can be quite possessive; you believe that what is yours should always be yours. You're never likely to give up anything you have earned the hard way. Others had better not attempt to encroach on your territory, for you will put up quite a fight to protect it.
You do, at times, act out of blind instinct rather than intellectual analysis, and this can work against you. Though it may be fun for others to watch you lash out upon occasion, the truth is that you are always at your best when you act in ways that are more socially acceptable.
Also born on this date are: Jessica Alba, actress; Jay Leno, comedian and television host; Penelope Cruz, actress; Ann-Margret, actress; James Monroe, U.S. president; Mary McDonnell, actress; Lionel Barrymore, actor; Kari Wuhrer, actress; Paul Guilfoyle, actor; Terry Pratchett, author.
