Born today, you go about your business in a down-to-earth, realistic, vigilant manner, never taking for granted the opportunities that may arise for you, and certainly never assuming for a moment that the success you currently enjoy will last. You tend to apply yourself fully to any task that seems worthwhile, and you will always take the time to study the landscape carefully to determine how you will proceed, then learn what you need to know to progress at a steady pace toward your chosen objective. You don't leave anything to chance if you can help it. You prefer to rely on old-fashioned know-how to win the day.
Despite any success you may enjoy, you're not likely to seek the crush of popularity and fame that success might bring. You will always work very hard to keep your feet on the ground and ensure that your life is as normal as possible.
Also born on this date are: Tom Hanks, actor; O.J. Simpson, football player; Courtney Love, singer and actress; Fred Savage, actor; Jimmy Smits, actor; John Tesh, television personality and musician; Kelly McGillis, actress; Chris Cooper, actor; Richard Roundtree, actor; Donald Rumsfeld, politician.
