Born today, you do not always do things in the most direct or easy manner, as you are probably one of the most mercurial and unpredictable individuals born under your sign. When younger, you likely had trouble saying no to temptation; when older and wiser, you will know how to avoid that kind of trouble -- and you will do what you can to help others avoid it, too. You can be quite instructive when you choose to be, and you have tremendous communication skills. Others seem drawn to you, and they always want to listen to what you have to say! You are creative and hard-working, always interested in doing things that challenge accepted norms and limits and that propel you forward while challenging your own sense of the status quo.
When it comes to supporting others, you are perhaps better equipped to do so than many other Scorpio natives, though you always keep your own wants and needs squarely in mind even as you work for someone else. You want to enjoy the fruits of your labors; you're not the kind to give away anything for free.
Also born on this date are: Matthew McConaughey, actor; Ralph Macchio, actor; Kathy Griffin, comedian; Laura Bush, U.S. first lady; Loretta Swit, actress; Martin Balsam, actor; Art Carney, actor and comedian; Walter Cronkite, news anchor; Will Rogers, humorist; Jeff Probst, television host; Sean Combs, singer and rapper.
