Born today, you are not the kind of person to enjoy being put in situations that you do not know and cannot control. You prefer to remain in the driver's seat at all times, steering a course based on experience, knowledge and instinct -- all three of which you trust to take you in the right direction through most of your life. While you do tend to prefer traveling life's journey on your own, you will certainly welcome others to join you at times -- but this can be tricky, for you must be comfortable with your companions and know them well, so that you are never unpleasantly surprised by anything they might say or do in response to your words or actions or what you encounter together along the path you have chosen to follow. You want your companions in life to share your outlook, ambitions, likes and dislikes, and all the rest; you are unlikely to form lasting bonds with anyone who differs too dramatically from you in any way.
You love nothing so much as access to other places and the knowledge that they can afford you. If travel is not a favorite hobby of yours, you can get what you need from books -- and from the tales others tell you of their travels and discoveries. Like so many born under your sign, you want to know about the world around you -- but it matters not if you learn by reading, by hearing stories or by personal experience.
Also born on this date are: Mother Teresa, religious leader; Chris Pine, actor; Macaulay Culkin, actor; Melissa McCarthy, actress; Geraldine Ferraro, politician; Branford Marsalis, musician; Michael Jeter, actor.
