Born today, you are perhaps one of the most quietly capable individuals born under your sign, the kind to go about your business with a minimum of fuss and trouble, aiming for the target and hitting it after only a few nearly successful attempts. You never blow your own horn in celebration of the accomplishments that are, for you, almost a daily occurrence. You are attractive, intelligent, charismatic and very realistic in your outlook. Like so many born under your sign, you are not one to consider "airy nothings" as a foundation for a happy life, but rather you focus on firm realities that you know to be constant and conducive to discovery, learning and good old-fashioned hard work.
You're likely to have developed a style all your own while still quite young, and it is one that others will be drawn to in both social and professional situations. Some may try to copy you, but to little effect; there is something about you that can be admired, but never successfully imitated.
Also born on this date are: Kate Winslet, actress; Bernie Mac, actor; Jesse Eisenberg, actor; Mario Lemieux, hockey player; Larry Fine, comedian; Karen Allen, actress; Guy Pearce, actor; Ray Kroc, entrepreneur; Allen Ludden, game show host; Steve Miller, musician; Chester A. Arthur, U.S. president; Glynis Johns, actress; Daniel Baldwin, actor; Donald Pleasence, actor.
