Born today, you have both a whimsical and a serious side, and the two are always vying for dominance within your complex personality. You have been endowed with more than the gift of laughter; indeed, you are more able to make others laugh than most born under your sign -- or any sign, for that matter! You have also been given the gift of empathy -- the ability to feel things as others feel them. This is something of a double-edged sword, for while it enables you to get very close to other people when you choose to do so, it also means that you will respond very personally when things happen to others -- and sometimes, quite frankly, you wish this were not so! It is not always convenient or pleasant to feel what those around you feel!
You have a great deal of style, and you may discover that charm is one of your greatest tools, both at work and in your personal relationships. You challenge others to interact with you on a very high level, whether physically, emotionally or intellectually. You ask a lot of your friends, and they give it willingly.
Also born on this date are: Phil McGraw, television personality; Gloria Estefan, singer; Conway Twitty, singer; Rocky Marciano, boxer; Barry Gibb, singer; Lily Tomlin, actress; Yvonne De Carlo, actress; Padma Lakshmi, television personality; Edgar Rice Burroughs, author; Alan Dershowitz, lawyer; James Rebhorn, actor.
