Born today, you are perhaps one of the most serious-minded, introspective, thoughtful individuals born under your sign. You feel compelled to look very deeply within yourself, others and any situation you may face to determine what is at the core. You are never interested in appearances; you want to know what is going on underneath the surface. You will strive mightily to uncover your own and other people's secrets. This can surely get you into hot water now and then, but because you are never malicious and would never use what you learn about another against him or her, you are usually forgiven for any trespasses or intrusions of which you may be found guilty.
You have a vivid imagination and highly developed communication skills. You know how to convey the most complex ideas in ways that are quite accessible. The fact that you are easily understood is a major factor of your overall popularity. People like you because they always know exactly what you're talking about!
Also born on this date are: Sylvia Plath, writer and poet; Nanette Fabray, singer; Roy Lichtenstein, artist; Simon Le Bon, singer; John Cleese, actor and comedian; Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. president; Dylan Thomas, poet; Scott Weiland, singer; Ivan Reitman, filmmaker.
