Born today, you know how to apply yourself to any endeavor with single-minded intent, carefully stocked reserves of energy and a well-honed assortment of personal tools that you can apply to almost any situation and come out on top. You are never dissuaded by the apparent difficulty of a task or situation. You will march straight ahead, confident that you can prevail -- and so you do, more often than not. Others are sure to look up to you, emulate you and desire your company -- both socially and professionally. You change the dynamics of a room simply by entering it, and whether you like it or not, you are sure to turn heads wherever you go.
You have a quiet intensity that is almost palpable. You never have to raise your voice to be heard, and you rarely have to say anything twice to be fully understood. Others know what you are about; you try to disguise no part of your nature. You are clear in your intent, and you express your opinions freely when invited to do so.
Also born on this date are: Tyra Banks, model; Marisa Tomei, actress; Lila McCann, singer; Jay Z, rapper; Wassili Kandinsky, painter; Jeff Bridges, actor; Fred Armisen, actor; Tony Todd, actor; Max Baer Jr., actor.
