Born today, you can often be found at the center of the action, wherever you may roam in this big old world. It is also likely that you will not only be present when important things transpire, but that you will also be a driving force for change throughout your lifetime, urging others to achieve more and better themselves at every turn. What is most remarkable, however, is that even as you are comfortable at the front of the line, leading others where you think they ought to go, you are also perfectly able to play a supporting role, doing what needs to be done in order to further someone else's agenda. It matters not whether you are center stage or backstage -- the fact is that you will always play an important role!
Your ability to do things in a new way will surely work well for you, but there are times when this may make your home life rather difficult, as you may spend less time attending to your domestic responsibilities than others feel you should.
Also born on this date are: Luke Perry, actor; Eleanor Roosevelt, U.S. first lady; Steve Young, football player; Daryl Hall, singer; Jane Krakowski, actress; Dottie West, singer; Jerome Robbins, choreographer; Elmore Leonard, author; Stephen Moyer, actor; Matt Bomer, actor; Michelle Trachtenberg, actress; Michelle Wie, golfer.
