Born today, you tend to go about your business in such a quiet, unassuming way that those around you may not even be aware of what you are accomplishing. Indeed, you are capable of achieving much in your lifetime. You often seem to be one thing when, in fact, you turn out to be something else entirely. This ability to mask your nature can come in handy both professionally and personally, but it carries with it responsibility and even danger: You run the risk of losing touch with your true self if you indulge too often, or too fully, in any "shadow identity" that you have manufactured for whatever reason. Being in touch with the real you is essential to your work, success, personal life and ability to navigate the complexities of daily living.
You have a keen wit and a vivid imagination. If you can see it in your mind's eye, you can make it real -- at least for yourself. You can also be quite an accomplished liar, for you will always believe a falsehood if you choose to do so -- and so, for you, it becomes the truth.
Also born on this date are: Bill Murray, actor; Stephen King, author; Faith Hill, singer; Larry Hagman, actor; Luke Wilson, actor; Ricki Lake, actress and talk show host; Chuck Jones, animator; H.G. Wells, author; Jerry Bruckheimer, producer; Nancy Travis, actress; Ethan Coen, filmmaker; Cheryl Hines, actress; Rob Morrow, actor.
