Born today, you have a kind of quiet strength that is often unnoticed or overlooked by those who encounter you in daily life. But anyone who knows you well, and knows what you are capable of when the chips are down, knows that you are someone to be reckoned with in every sense. You are quick to spot opportunities and quick to take advantage of them as best you can -- though you must always guard against jumping too precipitously into something you do not know enough about. Some endeavors will require you to garner knowledge and experience before acting. When you find yourself in such situations, you have two choices: You may continue on course and assume the risks that come with doing so, or you can back away quickly and cautiously -- which is no admission of defeat in any way!
Your emotions course beneath the surface quickly and strongly. That current fuels you both personally and professionally, and provides you with the energy and confidence you need to face unusual and difficult situations. The fact that you respond to things on such an intimate level is a very real strength of yours.
Also born on this date are: Ludacris, rapper; Harry Connick Jr., singer and actor; Bear Bryant, coach; Kristy McNichol, actress; Moby, DJ and musician; Tom Landry, football coach; Virginia Madsen, actress; Brian De Palma, filmmaker; Ferdinand Marcos, Philippine leader; D.H. Lawrence, poet and author.
